title: The Basics of a Great Sounding Room and System Set-Up category: Feature Article review date: September 2001 reviewed by: Jerry Del Colliano with Bob Hodas forum link: Comment on this review here... The Basics of a Great Sounding Room and System Set-Up When you start out as an audio/video enthusiast, the biggest improvements to your sound come from investments made in new equipment. Upgrading from your $300 bookshelf monitors to a pair of $2,000 floor-standing speakers will rock your world. Adding your first real subwoofer has a similar effect. However, we find that transcending from mid-fi to audio nirvana isn’t always as easy as flipping down the trusty old platinum card on the most swank of electronic components.

title: The Art of Tuning Your Room category: Feature Articles reviewed by: Jerry Del Colliano forum link: Comment on this review here... The Art of Tuning Your Room It is not your fault, but for years, the high end audio community has created a sense of insecurity amongst music lovers and audiophiles alike. You know the feeling: you open one of those magazines and some reviewer very unfavorably compares a component in your system to their "component of the week." It is only human to be curious to find out if this guy is right or just blowing smoke up your ear.

title: Do It Yourself Room Treatments category: Feature Article reviewed by: Jerry Del Colliano forum link: Comment on this review here... Do It Yourself Room Treatments The Problem. The single most important element of your music or theater system sounding great is not your speakers. It's your room. I know, it is unlikely you're going to rip down your drywall to re-brace your joists or load sonically deadening material into your walls. Nor do I expect you to tack on sorry-looking egg crate anywhere in your listening room. I am not interested in doing that either, but I am always interested in making my system sound significantly better, especially without spending thousands on new equipment.

manufacturer: How I built my dedicated listening room without getting divorced or taking out a second mortgage. category: Feature Articles reviewed by: Bryan Southard forum link: Comment on this review here... How I built my dedicated listening room without getting divorced or taking out a second mortgage. Introduction Several years back, while contemplating the quickest way to break in my new set of speakers, it dawned on me: "Why not put the speakers in the garage and run them around the clock for the required 200-300-hour break-in period?" My stereo was located in the main living room of my house, along with the TV and every other noise- making machine that we own. Because my wife likes to watch TV, I found myself getting very few relaxed, uninterrupted sessions to listen to my music, potentially postponing the breaking-in of my new speakers indefinitely.

AV Education on RHT How To Impress Your Friends With SACD Written by Jerry Del Colliano AudioRevolution.com and RevolutionHomeTheater.com readers are the ambassadors of new AV technology to the non-enthusiast world. While you sometimes have to take a little friendly verbal abuse (ball-breaking, as it is called in Jersey) for investing $20,000 in a TV or $7,900 in a new preamp, your razzing comes more from jealousy and envy than anything else. Your mission (if you choose to accept it) is to show your neighbors, friends and technically savvy acquaintances why you are so gaga about audio and video.
