How to set up a great audio systemm

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.

I have spent my life working with sound and audiophile 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 a complimentary service

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 all components using anti static mist.

Second step is ‘de-gauss’ (internal cleaning) using three-frequency sweep CD’s.

Third step is check all the cabling, re-arrange and clean connections and terminations.

Fourth step is check 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 check speaker positions, wall space and relationship to audio equipment.

Seventh step is focus the loudspeakers in relation to the listening position.

Eighth step will be to sit back, relax and listen 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 Lithuania, Denmark, Poland, United kingdom, United States,  Greenland, Hawaii and Latvia.
