Stereophile Product of the Year 1999 - Accessory

"Studio Traps are sound-absorbing and -reflecting closed cylinders—recording-studio technology adapted for the home listening environment. They come in a variety of colors, and are mounted on a tripod and spindled on a countersprung shaft so they're easy to rotate, raise, and lower. Send ASC your measurements (ahem) and they'll design a setup for you. Studio Traps have an immediate and profound effect on any soundfield they're introduced into. Learning to work their absorbing/reflective characteristics, the happy audiophile can practically eliminate the room as a factor in the sound. And once liberated from gross room interactions, you'll never go back!"
