PS Audio - Audiophile Guide


Recommended Posts

I purchased PS Audio - Audiophile Guide a few weeks back. Good read! The best part is how to properly setup your speakers. It comes with a disc to assist you setup. 
 

After a few days of various seat  & speaker positions, I’ve finally got the speakers into a position where the sound stage is 3 feet behind the speakers. I’ve also got a solid centre image whilst retaining wide & depth (3 feet) Pulling the speakers a minimum 4 feet away from the front wall is the key for depth & how much toe-in for the wide, & centre image.

 

The DSD disc with custom songs which  really helps you nail it 100%. It also has a track that helps your seating position (Bass track) find the most frequency response. 
 

My system has never sounded so good. 
 

I had to move my acoustic panels for 1st, 2nd & 3rd reflection points. 

 

I really thought I had my speakers dialled in, I did. Now I realise what I was missing. 
 

Fantastic upgrade for £70! Recommended purchase

 

Note the above is quick snap shot of speaker setup. In the book it’s 10 pages.

It is the other way around, get better sound has been there for ages. And though the sound barrier is newer, 2013 indeed. As I own GBS I have access to his quarterly notes, and after posting my previous message I checked those: he is still busy with it/it is not finished yet.

A well, it probably will be delivered together with my LH Labs Wave ;-) ;-)

This is really key if one can swing it. Great summary!

I have a relatively largish dedicated room and was able to pull my standmounts around 4 feet from the front wall and 3 feet from side (knee) walls (the room also has virtually no parallel surfaces, either). Toe-in from LP is about where I can see the speakers' inside walls, and you're absolutely dead-on that soundstage depth really benefits from the ability to pull them forward as much as possible. The depth is astounding; width, too. Stereo imaging and separation when the recording calls for it can be startling. Room interaction has always been key to great sound, but many just aren't that fortunate and have to make due with what they have. Trial-and-error with speaker positioning in even less-than-ideal space can still reap huge rewards if one is inclined to put forth the effort.
