Articles abbout room accoustics?

Why doesn't Stereophile devote more articles to room accoustics and a laymen's approach to improving them. After finishing the purchase of good equipment it seems to me that this would lead to the most noticeable aural improvements.

How about:
Everything you always wanted to know about room accoustics*

They've done it in the past. I think there's probably a time cycle to this sort of thing.

I'll look in the archives.

Besides, if they did cover more room acoustics, using up all those extra pages in the mag could mean that we miss out on whatever Musical Fidelity did this week!

Buddha's right, in a way -- devoting more space to room acoustics would mean losing space for reviews of other components. In our defense, our August issue features a report on RealTraps Mondo Traps, while Jonathan Scull's Fine Tunes column and Kal Rubinson's Music in the Round often address room acoustics.

I recall an article by Shannon Dickson that accompanied his description of the construction of his listening room. It was very informative.

However, I cannot find it through searching the site. Steven: Can you find it?

Sorry -- I haven't been able to find it either. I'll ask JA when he gets back from the UK.
