When you think about it, the room is arguably your most important component. I am well aware of the sound of mine, a 12′ W x 8′ H x 32′ L living room. I had a choice: setup on the long wall for soundstage width, or setup on the short to maximize depth. In either case, there would be compromises. For domestic reasons, I went for depth knowing full well that width would forever be an issue. There’s no getting around it?my room will never be convincing as a bonafide performance venue.
