This post is for anyone like me who has neglected proper monitor placement in their setup.
I only just recently tried this after knowing the general advice - “put monitors so that the tweeters are roughly at ear level” , but casually ignoring it as not too important.
ve just discovered its very important. I had my Tannoy Reveals both placed at desk level until the other week I just tried piling some books under them to get the tweeters at ear level; wow what a difference! Since then I`ve invested in some Isoacoustic stands to take the place of the books, but those monitors will be staying raised now either way.
The difference in sound has not been subtle, as if a low pass and notch filters have been removed from my listening chain, enough to make me want to kick myself for not heeding the advice before />
The trouble now is that I
m lusting after some new monitors (maybe some eve sc205s !(https://files.renoise.com/forum/emoticons/default/dribble.gif)/>) but in the meantime Im getting a lot more out of the Tannoys and posting so that others can hopefully avoid my mistake.
Happy monitoring! />
