We are back in production with the RoomTune acoustical treatments. Sorry about the lapse. Setup of the new place took a little longer than we thought, but we're back up to speed.
Harold Cooper of Sound Consultant and now MGA did a great job getting the new location up and going. Thank you Harold for your love of music and desire to help others get the best sound possible.
RoomTune is happy to have Music Direct as dealer for our RoomTune Acoustical Treatments.
There are 3 main parts to the playback side of the hobby.
I have been working on "the method of listening" since I got into music. As a result there have been many products I've designed that allow a listener to get the sound they want. Something that I think makes my designing different than many others is I believe in the listeners choice as well as the absolute sound. You'll probably never go to another listeners home or an audio show in your lifetime and hear the music sound the same as you are getting at your home. You'll also never hear two recordings sound exactly the same on your system. Most of the time some music will sound great, some good, and some less than good. When you read me talk about this on this forum and Tuneland I know it makes you wonder, "is it the recording or is it my system that makes the sound good or bad"? Experts in the recording and playback industries will say that the typical high end audio system plays about 10% of the recorded info. At first this may seem not so true, but let's do an experiment. Pick out a recording that you have and look up where this recording was made so you can see the studio that this was made in. Most well known recordings have info available on where and how the recording was done. It may take a little research on your part but you'll find it. Once you do look at the live studio rooms or hall the recording was made in, now play the recording. Can you see in the pics the size of the rooms or hall taken of this recording? The recording is the size of these rooms and if you unlock the recorded signal using your space as your hall and your equipment as your instruments you will not be seeing a miniture representative, but the whole picture.
My method is used all over the world and as you read TuneLand you will see the success stories of people who have taken their listening hobby to a whole new level. One that puts the recordings soundstage size and tone above anything else. On TuneLand I talk about a 2008 interview with Harry Pearson and give my thoughts http://tuneland.techno-zone.net/t234-harry-pearson-2008 .
The truth in this hobby all comes down to the size of that stage and the closer you get to real size/real space the more you will hear the performance as it was actually made, "the absolute sound". My goal has been to deliver this sound that Harry and J Gordon as well as many others have talked about. It's not the smallish stage that you hear at the shows or in your friends rooms but something that is much bigger and far more real to life. Sounds like a pretty bold statement. Who does this guy think he is? Well it's not about who I am but the others who follow this method and use these products and achieve the huge stages, and place themselves in the recording instead of hearing a small portion of it.
If you are happy with the sound of your music collection then there really is no need to bother with this, but if your sitting there tonight wondering if you are hearing everything (the actual event) I want to tell you, you can be. Take the time to read through some of these threads http://tuneland.techno-zone.net/f3-home-audio-systems and more. Take that piece of music and imagine the stage being 3 times or more than the stage you now have. If you would like this I can help you get there. No audiophile BS debates, no technical run-a-rounds, and no sales pitch beyond the method itself. On TuneLand I'll give you starter tunes that you can do yourself N/C. Once you see that we are legit, we can begin to take you deeper into the hobby of listening then you ever thought possible, and you can talk to others on the same journey.
