Topic: Acoustic treatment for your
Our January guest will demo and talk
about treating your HiFi listening room. Their slogan is
Making the world sound better, one room at a time.
RealTraps, a leader in this industry, suggest that the purpose
of acoustic treatment 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.
To solve acoustic problems common to
all rooms, RealTraps has developed a line of very high-performance
acoustic treatment - bass traps, broadband absorbers, and
diffusers. Once a room has been properly treated, the clarity
and articulation of music improves enormously. Whether you're
a professional recording engineer, serious audiophile, or
home theater owner who wants the best sound possible. According
to RealTraps, the most cost-effective way to upgrade your
entire system is with acoustic treatment.
RealTraps client lists include recording
studios, listening rooms, churches and chapels, restaurants,
bars, auditoriums, Foley studios, movie sound stages, DVD
mixing suites - even a research lab at MIT!
All RealTraps products are built in
their own Connecticut factory by highly skilled workers
using only American made parts. Treatment can costs anywhere
from $600 to $15,000, depending on the rooms problems/issues.
Refreshments will be available at 5:30 PM
