A Living Room for Perfect Listening Pleasure

It doesn’t happen too often that people decide to optimize the acoustics of their living room. But true audiophiles are of a special breed. Marcel from Almere in the Netherlands is one of them.

Marcel and his wife designed the room interior and commissioned Mutrox, a renowned Dutch acoustics specialist and studio builder, to develop and deliver the required acoustically active elements.

The main goal was to acoustically optimise the room while retaining the look and feel like a living room. The second and more demanding aim was to provide the opportunity to adjust the reverberation of the room, in this way giving the residents the opportunity to fine-tune the room acoustics at their discretion whenever they like.

Marcel and his wife finally opted for the use of false walls, acoustic curtains, and an acoustically active suspended ceiling. While the suspended ceiling is fixed due to the limited height of the room, the side walls and the front wall are made of various movable boxes that contain acoustically active elements such as absorbers and panel resonators.

Individual wall sections were also clad with strategically placed strips of wood, which meet the aesthetic criteria of the residents and also work as diffusors. »They render more ambience to the room. We find wood a great product to work with, it has character and it benefits the sound«, explains Marcel.

With a base reverberation of 0.41 seconds and a rather natural decay as well as with an almost linear frequency response with a slight dip around 55 Hz and a peak around 130Hz, the optimised living room boasts next to neutral audio reproduction with great balance, focus, and range of audibility. It perfectly suits the requirements for high-quality audio reproduction.

»It was a lot of work and we did it all ourselves. After all, the effort paid off: The room looks cosy and it’s nice to be in there«, says Marcel. »We are satisfied with the fabric. It was great to work with, has a fine-meshed structure, and, as you can see in the pictures, it looks fantastic when installed. I highly recommend it.«

New Top-notch Studio Relies on Our Acoustic Cloth

Akustikstoff von www.akustikstoff.com im Studio A der Kung Fu Studios Berlin (Marek Pompetzki)The newly opened Kung Fu Studios in the hip Berlin neighbourhood of Kreuzberg are the latest top address for world-class hit productions made in Germany. Replacing the former Numarek sound studios, the new recording facilities are the residence of Marek Pompetzki, Paul NZA, and Cecil Remmler—presumably today’s most successful producer team in Germany.

The trio has ranked among the German top producers for several years now, and the three guys churn out productions that do not have to shy away from comparison on even the highest international level: The sound of German rapper Sido bears the mark of Pompetzki & Co.  just as much as countless other recordings by artists such as Miley Cyrus, Kelly Rowland, Nico Santos, Max Herre, Cassandra Steen, Deichkind, or Ivy Quainoo … the list could go on for a while.

At the same time, the premises provide plenty of room for creative work and offer a convincingly appealing, pleasant work environment.
