If you have a nice system why do you really need room treatments?
Oh yes. Put your stereo at any price into an untreated gym and play it really loud. If you enjoy it that way, more power to you. Absolutely--I am sure it would be much more satisfying to  sit in the gym you had treated to the hilt and listen to...

To say the room is not important is like saying the croissant is not important- its all about the butter. That is not a good analogy--not even close.

@emergingsoul  , is the basic premise of your thread that you are asking if the love for room treatment might be based on confirmation bias?  
40+ watts SET, cost is not a problem
@audioman58 , this is someof what Cary says about the 805Rs: the tube complement,per monoblock is   2 - 6SN7 input tubes 1 - 300B driver tube 1 - 845 output tube or (Please choose 845 or 211 during install) 1 - 211 outpu... 
Are You a Swifty?
What is Truth Social investment? Am I the only one who doesn't know? It's a losing stock that some suckers bought.  
40+ watts SET, cost is not a problem
I’ve never heard them, but the Cary 805s (monoblocks) reportedly sound glorious. I am thinking that they put out around 50 wpc of SET. I think that they are now going for around 12k per pair. You can check on that by going to Carys web site. I thi...

I dont agree. Without a decent room you cant discern, effectively, what differentiates good from not so good. Of course you can.  For example: in a bad room you have one amp hooked up and the soundstage is confined to an area around the speaker...

@arizonabob some people have lost mega system's worth of money on their Truth Social "investment".  It's a sensitive subject. That's hilarious.

It’s about a really nice system in a room and you should be able to discern the qualities of a really nice system in room. Sure. But if you had the wherewithal to scientifically tune the room I am sure that would make the great sound of a great... 
Old Victrola
I think it's really cool to occasionally forget the fancy kit, take out an old fox trot or waltz 78, wind that crank and plunk that big needle down. Then take your sweetheart by the hand, pull her close and do slow turns around the living to that...

Another nonsense thread by the Op Probably.  
If you have a nice system why do you really need room treatments?
Not terribly long ago, there was a thread posted in "misc" by @calvinj pertaining to this very subject. The question was basically "can a good system sound good in a bad room?" And I would say that basically it can, but I have no doubt that it wo... 
Am I right for this forum?
You must learn to take a few of the posters here with a grain of salt. Many of them don’t or never will have the gear that they claim to have. Did you ever notice that they never show their systems? My guess is that they are full of Poop! The r...

The 'Art' is reproducing recorded music.  The best it can be done with electronic boxes, today,  is very low on the price pole.  The Marantz Yamaha thingy. @rok2id  , in my experience there is equipment that reproduces music much better than eq... 
Am I right for this forum?
@chrshanl37  @Immathewj you are of course correct it’s cue not “que” and I knew that, not sure why I did that but whatever. I believe you have mistaken me for someone else.  I do not recall ever commenting upon that.
