Audio gear is fun to discuss, but nothing will improve your listening experience as much as good room acoustics. These days, even modest audio gear can produce jaw-dropping sound quality if the room is well-treated to sound good.
The purpose of acoustic treatments is to improve the quality of sound in a room. Common problems are echoes and excess ambience, too much or too little bass, poor stereo imaging and localization, unclear movie dialog and generally muddy sound. Low frequencies are often the biggest problem, with response variations as large as 35 dB, especially in smaller rooms.
For recording engineers, mixes that seem fine in your control room sound boomy or thin when played elsewhere. If you cannot hear bass instruments clearly it is impossible to create mixes that sound good everywhere. For audiophiles and home theater owners, bass instruments sound boomy and ill-defined, movie dialog is difficult to understand at low volumes and the excess ambience turns music into an incoherent mess.
To solve acoustic problems common to all rooms, RealTraps has developed a line of very high-performance acoustic treatments.
