Welcome to Audio Tweak!
STOP!!! DON’T BUY ANYTHING!
Here we don’t sell Hi-Fi’s, we sell pleasure inducing machines, however first our aim is to ensure that you’re not going to throw your money out the window on the latest best reviewed component. Good sound is not about your equipment looking good, or you having the best. It’s so easy to fall into that trap, all it takes is a poor listening room, some poorly matched cables or source and your mega bucks system is like a dead trophy.
There’s one forgotten art to stereo, synergy, it is the one thing most dealers and shops don’t comprehend, without synergy a system will fall flat on it’s face. So ultimately yes, a great source and components makes a big difference, but if you are not trained at system matching, you’re wasting your time buying expensive audio equipment. For instance I can locate in an instance the culprit of a mismatch and alleviate it pretty much in an instant.
Audio Tweak started as the home of mods, after years of tinkering and building kit equipment, tinkering and trying 100’s of resistors brands, capacitor brands/type (Teflon, Oil, etc), high-speed soft recovery diodes of different brands and specs, hookup wires (copper, silver, gold over silver, silk-based, cotton-based, etc) we know exactly what part does what, how it can change the sonic signature of a source, speakers or of an amplifier. A lean source can easily be sorted without resorting to selling it on Gumtree, an old component can be upgraded and retain it’s sentimental value while getting it’s sound re-invigorated. You don’t always have to swap your equipment because “something doesn’t sound right”. Tweaks are something we offer through years of experience in order address things such as brightness, lack of body, bass, tonal irregularities or harshness.
Most of our sales have resulted from actually visiting clients who were unsatisfied with their sound or expensive system, after locating room acoustic related issues or poorly matched equipment, we made temporary on-the-fly adjustments and this greatly improved the performance of their system whilst leaving clients utterly beguiled and gobsmacked! Reach out to us and let us help you achieve your goals.
Thank you, Ramsey of Audio Tweak!
My listening room now includes a new Lampizator Amber MK 2. Equally important are some less glamorous additions that have been equally important to improving sound quality. In just one evening Ramsey identified some room acoustic issues, alleviated them with some temporary home remedies and improved my speaker positioning. The results have been significant!
Two days ago, I marvelled at how far my system has come, but remained annoyed with two kinks: (1) the apparent bloated mid-bass, showed up by the title track of D’Angelo’s Brown Sugar and (2) an emaciated treble that affected the right-hand keys on the piano and Miles Davis’s trumpet. So, yesterday I spent a couple of hours with Ramsey Raad (of Audio Tweak). Going back and forth, listening critically to a suite of reference recordings, he resolved to plug the bass reflex ports of my WLM La Scalas with foam, adjusted the height of the tweeter by ever-so-slightly by reducing the rake/tilt of the stands, shifted the listening position back by 15cm, and isolated the Lampizator DAC with a combination of Boston Audio Design isolation feet and – you guessed it – a home-remedy weight on top. And just like that, everything snapped into place.
Often we turn to new electronics or transducers to resolve our audio issues, but sometimes the solutions we’re looking for reside between our ears and within the acoustic space itself.
