Listening chair

I had a wide, high back listening chair (where the back of the chair is the height of my head). A well respected audio engineer came over to my house to listen, and the first thing he said was that I needed a lower back chair so my ears had access to the full audio experience (side and back waves included). It actually sounds much better.

Just though I would pass on that little tip.

Re: Listening chair

My preferred chair is also almost at the height of my ears, and I have discovered, that if I position the chair at any angle in correspondance to the speaker "plane", one of the speakers is louder than the other. See drawing below.

Well, um, no, ... Never mind ...:p

Interestingly, while their store in Washington state closed, they have one in WV. Odd, but not peculiar.

Re: Listening chair

I dont have a listening chair, I have a listening bed.
