I’ve been thinking about this for a while but been hesitant to post ’cause I don’t want to throw rocks at anyone.
I see all these speaker reviews on YT and wonder about the rooms they are using. I see square miles of drywall, so-called skyline diffusers and foam bass traps (!), equipment racks and video monitors between the speakers etc. Even saw one where the author had a neon light on between/behind the speakers! Imho all cardinal sins if one is trying to achieve decent sound reproduction. I’m sure these reviewers are all fine, well-intention people, but really?

Saw Dennis’s comment about visible equipment and yeah. Back in the 70s I saw the Grateful Dead’s Wall of Sound concerts. Huge stacks of speakers and backstage, towers of glowing blue McInstosh VU meters. Really cool but not what I want my listening area to look like. In fact I don’t want to see VU meters at all. Why would I, unless I’m engineering a recording or running a PA system.

Thanks Dennis for all the great info you share with us.
