It's all about the listening experience.
The way the stereo is placed can significantly affect the sound field. Here's how to create the best sound field in space:
Place the speaker on the speaker stand at the level of the ear.
For more detailed and accurate effect, you can even point the mediant and treble drivers at the ear level.
Basically, the front end of the speaker is toe-in and slightly twisted toward the center, facing the audience.
If the speaker cannot be placed in the position mentioned above due to space limitation, you do not need to worry too much.
The most important thing is left-right symmetry, which can achieve accurate sound positioning and good sound field.
The best distance between the speaker and the listener is 1 to 2 meters!
Too close will cause phase problems; too far will cause volume attenuation problems.
In addition, the distance from the wall to the speaker shall be at least 10cm.
The closer the audio to the back wall, the more the bass will show, which can be freely adjusted.
At the same time, you can adjust the bass and treble in time in the SOUNDGIL Cube APP.
The next step is to find the right cushion material, like natural materials. Good cushion materials not only can reduce the impact of vibration, but also make the sound clearer and produce good timbre.
It is better to choose hard wood as the material, and the recommended wood are Dalbergia odorifera and Rosewood. The suggested thickness is 3 to 5 centimeters.
The recommended thickness is about 1 centimeter.
Basically, the harder the material, the brighter the treble will be. On the contrary, the softer the material,
the softer the sound will be.
Users can adjust it by themselves. If there is no above cushion material, users should avoid putting the stereo on glass, or hollow materials because this would result in sound resonance and muddy effect.
Audio Warm-Up and Run-In：
The most fascinating aspect of audio equipment is that you may become an experimenter because different placement methods cushion materials, and even listening time present different music effects.
As far as our small CUBE system is concerned, the volume can be adjusted according to your actual situation. In principle, the sound should be as large as possible, and the music to be played must contain high, medium and low frequency.
The influence of music sources on sound quality
Since the advent of the CD, the sampling rate of digital audio sources has remained at 160bit / 44.1kHz for quite some time. However, a large number of high-resolution music above 24bit / ß96kHz has been released recently, and the sampling rate is three times that of CD. It is commonly referred to as high-resolution sound source.
Why is there a high-resolution audio source with a sampling rate exceeding CD and up to 96kHz?
First of all, it is difficult for the human ear to hear pitches as high as 20 kHz. However, if the overtones are generated with a pitch of 300 Hz (low frequency), even if it is as high as 20 kHz (high frequency), the human ear can easily recognize it.
Secondly, because humans do not discern ultrasonic waves like bats, they cannot identify pitches with frequencies as high as 40 kHz. However, if the overtones are generated with a pitch as high as a frequency of 40 kHz, the human ear can feel it even if it cannot recognize it.
The selling point of high-resolution audio source products is to record the ultra-high-frequency overtones that the human ear can't recognize, but can feel it in the audio source, so as to improve the quality of music.

At present, the audio source quality of online music streaming software such as KK BOX, Spotify, Apple Music, etc. are all 160bit / 44.1kHz similar to CD. If you would like a better audio source, Qobuz, Tidal and other lossless audio streaming software are some good options.
In 1919, the American physicist Arthur G. Webster invented the exponential type corner horn. Due to the efficiency as high as 50% (the efficiency of the general moving coil horn is only 1-10%, the efficiency of the Klipsch horn horn is about 30%). Soon it was widely used in theaters, stadiums and other places that require loud sound. read more...

Music without boundary 【Pink Floyd: Eternal Legend】
Pink Floyd started out in London, UK. Formed over five decades ago, the band is known for its experimental and conceptual style. Then taking the music industry by storm with its 250 million records sales across the globe, Pink Floyd has a status on a par with The Beatles, for the rock and roll music fans.
In the early days of the music industry, Pink Floyd started with psychedelic rock and roll music and later received international acclaim with their progressive music. Pink Floyd portrayed the social conditions at the time and presented the dark side of the society with music to provide catharsis. Pink Floyd brought on a perfect fusion of music and life, thus becoming an epochal canon in popular music.
Along the way, the band went through turbulence, break-ups and make-ups. In their later years, the band members focused on releasing solo albums. Nevertheless, Pink Floyd has made a solid benchmark in the history of popular music and repeatedly shaken and energized the music industry.
“Wish You Were Here”
Pink Floyd created the album, “Wish You Were Here”, in tribute to Syd Barrett, who at one point led Pink Floyd from an underground band to the mainstream, but left the band due to drug addiction. It was Syd who brought the band in its early phase to psychedelic infusion.
Its previous album, “Dark Side of the Moon”, achieved much commercial and artistic success and subsequently gave the band members a taste of fame. The long-standing creative tension between David Gilmour and Roger Waters started to grow about that time. So in the beginning of the album production, band members were all half-hearted about it, lacking mutual understanding and communication. Then Syd Barrett as a member that had left the band paid a surprise visit which turned the band around, and as a result, the album was saturated with reminiscing sentiments for Syd Barrett.
The eponymous song, “Wish You Were Here”, has a ballad-like melody coupled with elegant yet easy-to-comprehend lyrics, carrying a touch of sorrow and reminiscence. Embedded in the song are memories, questions and epiphanies on life, leaving one overwhelmed and filled with emotions.
