1 review for Audiophile Speaker Set-Up

    This set is very handy when setting your initial system. It is also VERY useful when making ANY, even the smallest, changes in you system or the room. I highly recommend (and use it very often) the tracks 58-69 “Precise Location and Depth-of-Field”. This will pinpoint the issues that you might have with your, otherwise, great system. I recommend it as a great tool.
