In most professional audio production as well as in private home entertainment facilities, there is too often a weak link that prevents harvesting, from carefully picked high-end audio equipment and proper acoustical treatment work, the highest quality one could and should expect. This weak link is the final essential step which consists in matching together both acoustics & electroacoustic in order to provide an optimum result that does justice to the overall financial investment.
Indeed there is still much to be done after a great room has been designed and a loudspeaker selection has been made. There is definitely a potential for greatness that needs to be tapped from. To do so, there are many tools available and processes to follow up, called optimisation, tuning, calibration or audio system alignment.
There are norms to be followed but it is to be understood that this is just the beginning. A great final experience is a combination of art and science that we will explore together.
