Yes, I purposely made the subject look like that other one.
This thread is for those that do measurements of their frequency response. Show them off! Show us your right channel, show us your left channel, show us your stereo response. Let’s see that room correcting EQ and those listening position before/after responses. Let’s see those room treatments and any before / after curves.
I’m holding back my own photos as I’m just a few weeks away from a GIK order arriving so I’ll post the before / after later in June.
(also, headphones can play too, it’s always interesting to see the wildly different responses between cans these days)
Ok, a teaser photo… a few weeks ago I played with the distance between speakers and obtained this result at the listening position. This is 1/3 smoothing. Red is before and green is after. The thick horizontal lines represent 1db. This was taken with a UMK-1 and REW. I use no EQ (yet).
What shall I say, very even and balanced, solid, wide and deep sound stage, images appear at the appropriate height, extremely wide sweet spot, no matter if seated, standing or crouched on the floor, only the lowest octave is MIA.
Owned the absolutely gorgeous sounding Magneplanar Tympani4A for a long time, which I had to part from due to relocation, but their only advantage was the ribbon tweeter.
Enough said, I’m very happy with what I have now!
Reviving this topic after playing around with REW’s new inversion correction method, as introduced by @OCA - thanks again for the intro!
Sounds are a little more precisely placed on the stage, everything seems a bit clearer and more natural than with the old moving-mic method.
BTW, to get rid of latency in relation to other grouped zones - uncurable with Roon’s DSP tools - I had to shorten the left window in the impulse response menu for the inverted minimum phase correction responses to like 21us, just before the step rises from 0%, and use a rectangular window.
This doesn’t seem to degrade the correction audibly and visually.
