You need room correction if you want the best sound

Room correction is possibly the biggest upgrade you can make to your music system. After all, great loudspeakers only show their full potential when adapted to the room.

Your room and its shape are critical to the sound you hear in it. Furniture, floors and walls reflect and color the sound in the room before it reaches your ears.

This means that you not only hear the sound from your speakers and your music system when you listen to music.

You also hear how the acoustics in your room affect the sound.

The room has a great influence on the sound

For example, if a loudspeaker is placed close to a wall, the bass will sound twice as powerful compared to a placement away from the walls.

The same loudspeaker has 6 times as much bass when placed in a corner.

The room's acoustics also influence some frequencies so you never hear them. Some notes simply disappear.

This means that the sound we experience when we listen to music can be quite far from the sound on the recording.

In other words, we hear a changed and colored version of the music when we hear it through a music system.

It applies no matter what kind of music you hear and how much money you have spent on your music system. It also applies no matter how loud (or how low) you play.

In other words: The loudspeakers' interaction with room acoustics limits how good sound quality you hear.

And next: A good music system will give you good music experiences.

What you can do about it

Professional recording studios are furnished with acoustic panels on walls and ceilings to minimize the impact of the room acoustics, but few of us want to live that way.

If you don't to install acoustic panels on the walls, there is only one way to go to upgrade the sound experience in your room.

It's room correction.

Until now, it has been difficult and expensive to get room correction in a music system, and it has stopped many from getting it.

Now, digital technology makes it possible to apply room correction in an easy and simple way, so you don't need to spend a fortune to get this upgrade.

You only need a smartphone.

We have created SA Room Service. A simple and ingenious App that measures the acoustics of your room, calculates a room correction and upgrades the sound.

The result is a clear upgrade in sound.

SA Room Service is created for users of our digital SA legend silverback speakers and Stereo Hub.

It is a revolutionary innovation that sets a new standard compared to traditional analogue music systems.
