|Room Size (LxWxH):||12' x 10' x 8'|
|Room Comments/Treatments:||Assorted natural rear diffusion.(mainly books on shelves) Some side wall absorption using acoustical foam.|
I am very limited for placement and treatments because of the lack of space in my tiny bedroom.
My speakers only just miss getting tipped over every time someone enters the room, but better sound beats greater convenience any day!!!!!!!!!!!!!
|Music Preferences and Comments:|
|Music Used (Genre/Selections):||Many genres of music are enjoyed, mainly older rock(eg.Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin), |
blues, and electronica(eg. Massive Attack). I am also an amateur classical fan.
|System Goals/Comments:||All of the above mentioned interconnects will be upgraded in the near future, $ permitting.|
|System Strengths:||Wide soundstage which stretches beyond my side walls. Accurate midrange.|
|System Weaknesses:||The soundstage has very little depth of image, and treble is often overly bright. This, i'm sure, is caused not by my equipment but by my SMALL room which currently has little sound absorption on the side walls and no treatment behind the speakers.|
|Video/HT System: Integrated|
|TV/Projector:||Citizen 13" T.V.(yes only 13 inches)|
(Very ancient Christmas gift)
|Processor/Receiver/Amplifiers:||Integrated with my home stereo.|
|Speakers (Center, Surrounds, Sub):||Same as above.|
|Sources (DVD/VCR):||Marantz MV-830 S-VHS VCR|
|Comments on HT System:||I currently have little interest in home theater, though I am deeply interested in future HDTV(in my area we only receive tape looped demo's and the very rare late night broadcast.) and "HD" DVD.|
|Other Interests/Hobbies/Occupation:||I am currently enrolled in a local college where I am studying Electrical Engineering, Communications (Fiber optics, audio and video transmission formats.)This expense is the only thing keeping me from filling up more of these spaces. :(|
