  • Critical Listening Sweet-spot Seating - What are you Using?

    I am thinking about changing / upgrading my listening chair and would like some input on how you chose what you are using. How you would rate what you have chosen in both acoustic impact and comfort and maybe visuals if that is applicable in your case.

      My son has one. I think they look nice and are kind of comfortable for a nap, but sit too low and lean back too far for comfortable sitting, at least for me.

        My wife and I are small and listening is part of our living room/dining room. The chairs have to be acceptable to us as general seating and not specialized audio chairs. They have to be comfy for us which means small by big box furniture store standards. I prefe a chair that swivels where the back is well below my ears.

          This hobby is so one person minded. I use a couch but sit back some 18 feet from them. So many rooms have one chair reminds of star track and command post o just don’t get that part. But I am the odd person in this train reck hobby.

            I have the Ikea Poang (sp) chair and have been pleased with them. If I ever came across a bag of money, I would love to get a couple Herman MIller Eames chars..

              Chairs are like everything else in this hobby-nobody can agree on anything. If a 100 people chime in on this thread, you will get 100 different opinions on the chair you should buy. It won't be a coincidence that the chair people will recommend are the ones they own. Buy whatever pleases you both aesthetically and comfort wise.

                Probably as close as I will get to having an AMG C63s coupe - just add swivel base
