    Would You Rather: Soundstage+Phantom Center OR More Accurate Frequency Response?

    Share your house curve (graph or numbers)

    I thought it could be interesting to see how people have dialed in the balance of their system. Both to share our individual preference but also get a bit of anecdotal evidence of what people prefer. If sharing a graph, quite a lot of smoothing (1/3 or 1/6) is probably good so we can easier see...

    2.1 Setup for Films & Music

    I enjoy films and music in Stereo (PC -> DAC -> Rotel Amp -> ATC SCM20). I am aware that in my current setup where surround is downmixed, I'm losing the LFE channel.

    Let's discuss room correction

    I struggle to understand this. I've seen some discussions of this on other hifi forums, but they quickly become very heated, and attract people who have vested interests in the issue. And they quickly become so technical that I end up being more confused than I was. Here on the forum there are...
