    Hi, Norman. Where can we find any P&E Wing recommendations for monitoring? I know that there is an ITU-recommended listening room, but I am not aware that NARAS P&E wing recommendations anything to do with monitoring.

    In my case my room and monitors are extremely calibrated, down to setting and knowing the SPL at a particular monitor control gain. I’ve run into tons of obstacles, so nearly always end up with a combination of measurements and empirical listening judgments. To be honest, I’ve not met any acoustician worth their salt that doesn’t listen. The days have not arrived when anyone can predict the tonality of a system given variations in loudspeaker horizontal polar pattern for one, and a host of other variables that require making final adjustments by ear.
