Re: [ARSCLIST] Mostly for laughs

I've been to a guy's house with a system that retails for $250K--not what he paid. His system is the only one I've ever seen that had as much time and effort for a good acoustic and good power. The dude convinced the utilities to run 3 phase AC to his house. He has one 110V leg dedicated for the listening room and the system has its own breaker box. He had a very high priced acoustical engineer come in and treat the room with diffuser panels covered over with special fabric. The fabric looks like a painted wall. The sound in the room is pretty amazing. It's conception and execution is more like a recording studio. The good acoustics definitely swamp the affects of tweaking.

likely that the cancellations and reinforcements due to
reflected sound waves would have more effect than any electronic
