Excellent alternative to acoustic treatment

IbanLoL, 16.10.2017
Not wishing to spend several k¤ in acoustic treatment of my home studio (double walls, false ceiling, floating floor, bass traps resonators, etc etc) I opted for the alternative ARC system, having already heard praise . Result: bluffed!

Admittedly, it does not correct the acoustic problems of a room, either ... But makes the position (s) listening really balanced. The sound becomes full, and we hear a lot more details. This is an excellent system that calibrates speakers to make better choices.

The only downside is that the measurement positions to be done are not very well described, and you have to go on the internet to look for the manual. It deserves a little clarity but it's really to look for the little beast. The plugin also deserves a stand-alone application so you can listen to all the PC sound outside of a DAW (music, videos, etc.), but there is a possible tinkering with Virtual Audio Cable and a host application for VST.

In this budget, the value for money is unbeatable in my opinion to improve its listening.

Very satisfied.
