Rives Audio Consulting - Advice?
Well, this was an ongoing issue for about 3 years, so it is too much to go into here- I just can't type that much. Fundamentally, from the day the room was built I had and continue to have huge bass issues. And not only with the original speakers ... 
Rives Audio Consulting - Advice?
Two sides to every nickel. My experience with Rives when and after they did my room is one of the worst experiences I've had in audio. But I'm happy for you guys that had a good outcome.

'they blew'em off the stage'
Hey thanks Marty, I'll check the Mercer CD out. Luna, Feelies and Galaxy 500 all had some good stuff around then, and all were good live shows. I think they had some member hopping between those bands also.

Revel Salon 2 versus WP 8
Elberoth2- I'm not a bit surprised by Jkalmans bass problems. I too have a Rives room and have been fighting a huge 80hz bump even after adding (rather, knocking out a finished wall and building) a large Helmholz resonator. After parading a number...

Einstein The Tube pre vs Nagra PL-L or VTL7.5 II
Essentialaudio. I'm shocked. 
The Room
By the same token, one can spend a large some of money on the room, and if poorly designed, end up with a poor sounding or even unlistenable room. Then you're in the same position of essentially chasing the right gear to make up for the bad room. ... 
What song best describes you or your life?
