RE: Room Matching ?

No rules or set formulas. The size of room, its acoustics will determine how a system will sound. Try and build a system around your room and not the other way round.

If your room is reflective then try and avoid a system that provokes harshness.

Amp; CDP; Turntable; Tuner; Speakers
