If you want good sound you need to set up the gear outdoor and turn it up.

Equal Loudness
I've been using the loudness feature on my ADI-2 DAC FS and love it. I'm using this mainly with TV/movies (new house doesn't suit a surround setup, and I have young kids so volume needs to be kept low in the evening).

https://www.rme-audio.de/download/adi2dac_e.pdf

Basically you set a reference level and bass/treble gain at that point. At 20dB above reference the gain of bass/treble is zero. Bass/treble gain is automatically reduced as you increase volume between reference level and 20dB higher.

All settings are made by ear at this point but the impact on voice intelligibility and bass presence is profound (to me). I can switch the feature on and off via the remote, so it's easy to compare.

Hi,


I have trouble with these curves. On my system, it appears that past 90-95dBC, SPL increases more for medium/high frequencies than others. My listening room is very dead (RT60 = 170ms for a room volume of 100m^3). I have to use a flat frequency with bass shelve +6dB for 80-90dBC playback, but a slope of -6dB in the upper part of the spectrum for 95-100dBC playback.


My perception disagree with isosonic curves, I'd like to know if you feel the same or not ?
