Looks like I have to move my speakers so I have some questions for you guys.
Space is a huge issue here in Japan and especially now the pitter patter of little feet are due it is even more so. At best I can fit my NS-10’s directly in front of me or one of my Adams. Although they’ve never been in the ideal listening position (re: the triangular two speakers and head deal), this conundrum has really got me pondering why we all do what we do.
You make Techno music? I assume it is for a club environment and therefore it will be played back in mono. Why do you have two speakers. Why not have one directly in front of you?
You record bands or like making stereo tracks? That’s great. I can understand why more producers/engineers would need 2 speakers.
I do wonder why I don’t see more pictures in the ‘Your Setups’ thread with more surround sounds like 5.1 etc.
I’m really interested to hear the real reason why you have to have 2 speakers?
It was interesting to read Mr. G’s interview the other day courtesy of @the_PMO’s thread. He bangs his stuff out in mono always.
I was also curious as to why there are discussions and quandaries about speakers being placed on their sides when actually the real question maybe the title of this thread;
One Speaker or Two? And why?
