Is attention to listening room acoustics considered important to say non audiophiles - those who might prioritize their music listening criteria as composition, performance, recording, playback sound? It seems audio grail seekers are something of a dying breed these days especially with the growing influence of home entertainment systems with their strong appeal to watching things. Certainly the Blu-ray disc has the potential for SACD audio quality or better but does the surround experience - sound field instead of sound stage - mask existing acoustic problems in an untreated listening room enough to be a non issue? There are those who argue for the superior sound of the LP and presumably the merits of two channel stereo compared to digital surround. And there are some who claim the first component in a music listening system is the acoustic sound of the room. Any believer/non believers on the forum? Best, Hal.
