Cathedral ceilings

If I could change one parameter of Music Room One it would be the ceiling height and shape.

We are fortunate for the ceiling’s height, at ten feet. And we are fortunate the speakers are a line source which negates much of the ceiling and floor bounce.

But, if you’ve ever had the chance to hear a speaker in a room with an arched cathedral ceiling, you’ll understand what I mean when I say, there’s nothing quite as good.

The very best systems I have had the privilege of enjoying have been inside rooms with arched ceilings – which sound better than even very tall flat ones.

For those lucky enough to be starting on that new listening room from scratch, consider the cathedral ceiling.

The sound is as if from heaven.
