  1. I must be just lucky because in the last forty years I’ve been using listening rooms that are around 6 metres by 4 metres by 2.5 metres without requiring traps or deflectors.

  2. The core question is: for which type of listening room acoustics has the mix been optimized by the sound engineer in his acoustically optimized studio? 🙂 Shouldn’t the listening room of the end user have a similar acoustic as the studios following minimum standards?

    1. You can check the websites of many studios and mastering people and most of them inform you of the acoustical measures they took in the rooms where they master. The answer is that they ARE very careful of acoustics. Many post pictures of the rooms too.
      The most important thing you can do in your room is control the low frequencies. Those are the ones that give you most trouble. Unless you also have a lot of high frequency reflections, but those are easier to tame.
