What is HiFi room?
Deezer’s new HiFi Room is designed with audiophiles in mind. The music streaming service Deezer has recognized this phenomenon and curated a collection of music that can bring out the best from an audio system. Deezer hasn’t just chosen jazz or classical recordings, either.
How do I set up an audio room for listening?
Start by facing the short wall of your room, so your speakers fire down the length of the room. It’s usually better for the listening position to face the short wall vs the long wall. This tends to give a flatter bass response. Also, this lets you maximize the distance between the rear wall and your ears.
Should you put acoustic treatment behind speakers?
In general you should avoid having your speakers anywhere from 12” to 30” from the front wall, unless you treat directly behind the speakers. Otherwise you can get cancellations and peaks in response due to reflections from the front wall.
What is Deezer HiFi?
Previously limited to the desktop software, Deezer HiFi’s 52 million lossless tracks can now be listened to via the iOS and Android mobile apps. According to Deezer: “If you turn on HiFi and close your eyes, it’s like you’re in the studio with your favourite artist.
What is the 38% rule?
THE 38 PERCENT RULE The placement method used here is based on the “38 percent rule” which theorizes that the best listening position is 38 percent into the length of the room, when measured from either the front or rear wall. This offers the best compromise of peaks versus nulls for any given room size.
How do I set up speakers in my room?
A few of our suggestions for positioning speakers: Speakers should be laid out so that they play along the length of the room. If you have a surround-sound system for your TV in mind, your chair or sofa should ideally be placed nearer the middle of the room and not too close to the back wall.
What level should I set my studio monitors?
A good rule of thumb is that your volume level should be low enough to allow for conversation without raising your voice. If you need to shout to be heard, your monitors are too loud.
How much does it cost to acoustically treat a room?

Do audio panels work?
While soundproof panels are great products to help block out sound and reduce noise travel for your room, they will not be as effective as other soundproofing methods. If you have minimal soundproofing needs or don’t have a large budget, installing soundproof panels are certainly great options and will help.
How do you acoustically treat a room for vocals?
Once of the most effective ways of treating a larger room for better vocal recordings is with the use of a reflection filter. This is essentially a small shield made of acoustic treatment panels that attaches to your stand and prevents reflections from making their way back to your microphone.
