If you take a picture and the camera is not quite in focus the picture will not please the eye. In the same manner when an audio system is not adjusted correctly and is said to be out of focus then it will sound not as good as it should so the audio system set up is important!
I have spent my life working with sound and audio systems and I know exactly what I am doing and how to get the best sound from an existing system. When I finished the system set up and see the smile on the persons face and my hand is shaken so warmly that’s a feeling that money can’t buy!
Today we have Skype which is a wonderful tool and with the use of Skype I am able to help you set up your audio system which is a complimentary service
The audio system set up procedure
There are eight steps which have to be followed in order to get the system ready to be heard as it was meant to be heard or ‘in focus’
The first step is removing static from the components using anti-static mist.
Second step is ‘de-gauss’ (internal cleaning) using three-frequency sweep CDs.
Third step is to check all the cabling, re-arrange and clean connections and terminations.
The fourth step is to check the alignment of system cabling which includes power cord polarity.
Firth step is check placement of all items and re-position for maximum separation.
Sixth step is to check speaker positions, wall space and relationship to audio equipment.
The seventh step focuses the loudspeakers in relation to the listening position.
The eighth step will be to sit back, relax and listen to how good the system now sounds!
Shown below are pictures of just some systems that I have set up over the past eighteen months. The systems are in Canada, Norway, Lithuania, Denmark, Poland, United Kingdom, United States, Greenland, Hawaii, and Latvia.
This last picture was taken in Vilnius, Lithuania and is of a system completely hand built by a Russian specialist. The system was placed in a very small room and was one of the biggest challenges I have ever faced. And If you wish to read more please click here
