We have a reasonably well-treated room here. It's nothing for a magazine cover, but it has reasonable isolation, good proportions, trapping and surface treatments. But like a lot of places, there's often a tendancy to second-guess what we're hearing -- especially keeping track of the low end. The ERGO seemed like a good way to finally tame that last acoustical frontier. I set the ERGO up on our 2.1 system and spent time listening to known-good material. 'Learning' the new sound came quickly. I then started mixing a few projects, avoiding that second-guess habit.
The first thing I noticed was that I could haul my mix into other rooms and have a reasonable chance that the mix would be intact. The mix held together and rarely did anything just disappear. The real test was when mixes began to hit the air. Hey--it's TV and car radios, but these mixes came closer to what I had been hearing in my head, and consistently held up well against the best high-end production.

This thing really works!! After doing the easy calibration process, press the little focus/global button and hear the difference. It's amazing how you can hear your mix stand together and controlled. It becomes clearer and all the boominess goes away, letting you hear your bass frecuencies tight and solid. And the best part of everything is when you take your mix elsewhere and it hears GREAT!!! No more time wasting car checks... It's not gonna solve all your problems on a very bad environment though. It's a very good complement for your system, not a complete acoustic solution, but definitely recomended for making your room perfect for mixing. KRK Rocks!!
