ACOUSTICS MATTERS MORE THAN GEAR

Audio gear is fun to discuss, but nothing will improve your listening experience as much as good room acoustics. These days, even modest audio gear can produce jaw-dropping sound quality if the room itself sounds good.

At RealTraps we devote a huge amount of our resources to educating the public about the importance of acoustics, whether or not they are potential customers for our products. We have produced scores of non-commercial educational articles and videos for our web site, and we spend a lot of time in audio forums to promote understanding of acoustics to the public. Although we often link to educational pages on our web site in forum posts, we never mention our products unless asked specifically. We are there to educate, not promote our business.

MEET THE EXPERTS

RealTraps co-owner Ethan Winer has been a professional audio engineer and musician for more than 40 years. Over the years, Ethan has arguably done more than anyone else to promote the importance of acoustic treatment. If you're reading this, chances are good you arrived here due to Ethan's hard work evangelizing about small-room acoustics. Even though Ethan is in the business of selling acoustic treatment products, he feels so strongly about the importance of acoustics that he gladly spends much of his personal time helping people build their own treatment. Ethan's non-commercial Acoustics FAQ contains extensive DIY information, and receives about 10,000 views per month. He also manages the Acoustics Forum at MusicPlayer.com and the Audio Skeptic Forum at the What's Best web site.

Jim "JWL" Lindenschmidt is RealTraps general manager, and he is equally passionate about acoustics. When he's not helping RealTraps customers by phone and email, Jim answers acoustics questions on audio forums including Gearslutz and the TapeOp Message Board. Jim has been a musician and audio engineer since he was a child. He records his own projects and other clients through Crafted Recordings, his recording business. You can contact Jim directly:
