About us

We would like to take you back
to where the music was created.

Capturing the experience of a live musical
performance and reproducing it at home.
It is widely agreed that this is very difficult and that even the best-regarded recording and playback systems rarely, if ever, achieve it.

Specialism

Lifting sound systems to their full potential.

AcousticMatters works closely with specialists in the music and audio industry. Each specialism is instrumental in getting the sound in your room right. Whether it is the tuning of the audio system, or the clean power / electricity supply or LAN network cabling for streaming solutions.

Every aspect is important to achieve great sound quality.

The sound quality, or lack of sound quality, is determined by the room in which you listen to the audio system.

It is truly amazing that we live in a world where amplifiers improve sound quality to almost immeasurable distortion figures of 0.001%, and where audiophiles worry about DACs that have a minimal amount of jitter (timing errors in the digital domain). That said, those same audiophiles implicitly accept distortions in their listening rooms of 50% or more! They blame the colored sound of their system on an interconnect cable or to the source component like a digital streamer or CD player. In fact the sound quality, or lack thereof, is entirely determined by the room in which you listen to an audio system.

As an example, about 15 years ago Acoustic Matters attended a demonstration of a truly high-end loudspeaker. This speaker had a basic flat tonal response, low distortion and very good time alignment. It was played mono to show the influence of the room on the loudspeaker performance.

At the perfect spot, the percussion on a wood block sounded truly believable. But by moving this speaker just 1 cm, or 1/3 of an inch, backwards the sound changed dramatically and the wood block sounded as if it was made of plastic. So the tonal impact was negative and was substantially caused by the room acoustics interfering with the speaker.

As a passionate music lover, he soon discovered the importance of acoustics and the strong influence it has on a listening environment. An area still ignored by many audiophiles.
