By utilizing the provided measuring microphone and conducting a series of microphone measurements, RoomPerfect thoroughly analyzes your listening room and creates a highly accurate digital correction that effectively counteracts room resonances and other distortions. Consequently, the sound emitted from your speakers is the pure, unadulterated sound from the original recording, unaffected by any distortions or colorations caused by your listening environment.

RoomPerfect operates by eliminating the excessive sound caused by room resonances at specific frequencies. This singular feature significantly enhances the accuracy of the sound image. By inputting the physical distances between the speakers and the desired listening position, the MP-60 2.1 system effortlessly corrects any phase discrepancies in the audio, thereby adding the final touch to an unparalleled, lifelike music experience.

Once the measurements are completed, RoomPerfect can store multiple settings that optimize the sound quality not only in the “sweet spot” but also in other listening positions, based on your preference. Additionally, the system can generate a global setting that remarkably enhances the sound throughout the entire room. Therefore, you can conveniently position your speakers against the wall and allow RoomPerfect to handle the rest. Placing the speakers adjacent to the wall is actually the optimal configuration as it enhances efficiency and minimizes impulse spreading or “smearing.” However, this exceptional capability is exclusive to RoomPerfect!
