Lyngdorf Room Perfect
RoomPerfect – The World’s Best Room Correction
The sound of your speaker will be dramatically changed by the acoustics of your room. Measuring and correcting your speakers and room is the only way to remove these errors, so you can enjoy your music and films at their best.
There are many room correction systems available, all of which follow the same process. A microphone is placed at the listening position and a measurements is taken. This process is repeated across more seating positions and then the sound of the system is changed to try and match a predetermined response.
These systems can reduce acoustic problems, but all of them change the sound of a good speaker.
In 1993 Peter Lyngdorf released the world’s first full range, digital room correction, designed for use with the highest fidelity music systems. While it removed the worst errors that the room created, results were inconsistent results and the system changed the characteristics of the speakers used.
At the heart of the problem was the measurement process. By measuring the system with a microphone firing at the ceiling, the sound captured has already been corrupted by the room. This method cannot capture the characteristic of the speakers and so could only change the system to match a generic “good sound”.
A New Approach to Sound Measurement
Audiophiles spent great care choosing speakers and wanted their sound preserved rather than changed by the electronics used. The flaws in Lyngdorfs first correction system led to a new method of measuring the speakers and the listening room.
RoomPerfect starts by firing the mic towards the front speakers. This captures the characteristics of your speakers with the unique additions of your listening room. This allows the system to create a target curve that’s unique to your speakers and your room.
Additional measurements are taken across the full height, width and length of the room. The problems created by the room are a three-dimensional issue and only by capturing the sound throughout the whole room can its effect be completely understood and reliably corrected.
At the time RoomPerfect was being developed, subwoofers were becoming more popular and Lyngdorf saw that often the subs in the systems didn’t perfectly integrate with the rest of the speakers. This led to another unique feature of RoomPerfect, the measurement and correction of the speakers and the subwoofers together. With the correct time alignment, RoomPerfect ensures the sound of your speakers and subs play “as one” so compact speakers can provide convincing, full range sound.
Where two subwoofers can be placed in the front corners of the room, true stereo bass is achieved. In surround systems, the bass from the left-hand subwoofer will be perfectly integrated with all the speakers on the left of the room. With the same quality of bass playing through all your speakers the most natural, enveloping sound is achieved around and above the listener.
Placing woofers in the front corners of the room is the only position that can ensure the best timing from your subs. It’s only these positions that ensure all the energy they produce arrives at the listening position at the same time. Try listening to some drumming or any content with good transients and you’ll immediately hear the benefits.

Reviews – Surround Sound
Lyngdorf Surround Processors have now been reviewed by three different specialist AV publications who were familiar with Trinnov, Datasat and all other high-end alternatives. All three reviews agree the Lyngdorf sounds best. Here is a taster.
The best surround Processor I’ve ever heard..... and I’ve heard them all. AVForum
There may be a reason for picking a processor like Datasat or Trinnov, but sound quality isn’t
one of them. These products are now in a class of their own. Widescreen Review
I’ve come to the conclusion that’s it’s the best surround processor I’ve ever heard. Home
Reviews – Stereo
Many stereo products have changed little in 30 years. Room correction, digital amplification and bass management mean you can deliver far better sound than is possible with traditional hifis and reviewers are beginning to see the light. Here is some recent feedback.
I was absolutely blown away by the TDAI 3400. It is an absolute stand-out product in every way. If it has vices I failed to find them. TheEar.Net
The truth is that it sounds shockingly good. The integration with the subwoofer was seamless and no matter what record I played the result was always the same – slack-jawed astonishment. TheEar.Net
The transformation (with RoomPerfect) is incredible. If you have not heard a proper room
equalization system, I don't know that you can ever understand the words above. Suffice it to
say, nothing, nothing you can do to your system to uplift its performance as much as room
equalization can. Audiosciencereview.
Get yourself a pair of excellent speakers and pair it with the Lyngdorf and "you are done."
Your tiny system will outperform tons of other systems without equalization.”
