Few of us are lucky enough to have dedicated listening rooms.
For most people, stereo systems are part of where we live: shared spaces with couches, chachkes, family members. And there’s certainly nothing wrong with that. Some of the most satisfying musical experiences I have enjoyed were not in dedicated rooms, but rather part of real-world living environments.
If I were building a system around the limitations of a lived-in room, I would do things differently than I have in Music Room One.
Tomorrow I’ll touch on a few of these thoughts and differences.
