Tip and Advice So you get the best from your speakers

When it comes to classical music, getting the best sound is of high importance.

The following tips will aid you when doing so

  • Make sure you arrange your speakers properly. As a rule of them, if you are working with two speakers, make sure they are symmetrical to each other. Also, the distance between them should be the same as the distance between the speaker and your preferred listening position. This way there is a triangle shaped soundstage when you sit down to work
  • Make sure the speakers are not placed on the ground. Instead place is on the same height as your ears while listening. This will ensure a better high frequency delivery
  • Make sure there are no obstacles between the speakers and your ear
  • Ensure that your work room or listening room is well set up and treated. So you want to cover the windows and curtains and arrange some shelves against wide flat walls.
  • When picking furniture for room, opt for things made from wood over marble, glass or metal. This is because the pores from the wood will help in absorbing some of that reflected sound
  • Use couches and chairs to help dampen the sound
