We do no one a service by encouraging their delusions. It does absolutely no good to train your ears or to attempt to learn the mastering craft in a crap room. And I’m not talking about installing some bass traps and absorbers either. It takes much more than that! I’m speaking of real acoustic design. This is so much what quality mastering is about and so much what everyone else is missing. To critically listen and make adjustments, you must be in an accurate listening environment. Bass trapping and absorption will make a bedroom, living room or other small area more useable but it will not make it accurate! Accuracy requires space and design. Without that, the best $10,000 speaker wires, eq’s, compressors, computer programs, plug ins and "Golden Ears" are worthless. First, put a couple of hundred thousand dollars into the room and then you can go for all the other stuff! Otherwise you're just fooling yourself (and your ears). This is one reason why mastering is so expensive. Real Estate!!!
