Time of Day for best Sound

I've always felt my system sounded best at night, but the last couple months, it seems to me that my system is sounding better during the daytime even on a Saturday.

Has anyone belonging to the "My system sounds better certain times of the day" club noticed this change?

Not a big deal but I find it curious. And theres no need to debate the reality of the general idea, just wondering if someone else feels this has happened.


For the record I have been using a dedicated 20 Amp feed.


How about what time of YEAR?

For me, that would be winter cold, dry air.

@ghdprentice - same here. Night time. I live near a fairly busy road and definitely the reduction from traffic vibrations makes a difference. However, I think another factor is the power amps being fully warmed up. Even with Class A amps, it takes them a full two hours to sound their best.


Finally, someone says something that makes sense to me. As air density changes so does its acoustic impedance. As temperature decreases the acoustic impedance increases. Sound needs air molecules to translate from source (speaker) to receiver (ears). Ever hear the statement "in space no one can hear you scream?" This is why.


High humidity sucks the life out of the sound in my experience. Hence I use a dehumidifier to keep humidity at 40 or below. That makes a lot bigger difference in my house of stereo than time of day.
