    Introducing MBL gear will make more sense to him on a temporary basis is no different than crack, he will be hooked.

    Am I the only one who sees what looks like a subwoofer sitting behind the equipment rack? Is this an audio mirage? Do my eyes deceive me?

    You do. I removed it and some of the absorbers which were sucking the life out of the MBL’s. MBL’s don’t want absorption since they work on the principle of reflection.

    Hi Mike,

    Maybe you could add a couple of Vicoustic VicTotems behind the speakers spun to their diffusion side on that bare front wall.

    That could work. I suggested some silk plants. His wife liked that idea.

    Thanks for the update Mike. That sub sitting behind the rack was giving me heartburn...... Need some artwork on the walls, she looking mighty bare now.

    Probably a moonscape on that back wall to complement the speakers! I can just picture it in my mind.
    The MBL room at Suncoast audio really is impressive. They are such immersive speakers that you feel like you are at the event.
    Your client is a lucky man! Congrats!
