Should there be something between a speaker and the surface it's on, something to cushion it? I've always used foam cushions but a friend of mine told me that was problematic. Is that true?

I'm trying to create a home office for myself that includes sound but don't want big speakers that take up space. I have enough office equipment etc. that takes up enough. I was thinking about ceiling speakers. I found this: http://www.fullcompass.com/prod/531590-JBL-Control-26CT-B-STOCK-MODEL Anyone have any ideas on it?

Despite the fact that sound quality is a personal decision, I tend to think that floor-standing and/or bookshelf speakers have the best sound, owing to the fact that their enclosures and drivers are matched for performance. I have never had a problem with the fact that they could easily take up floor space.

I read an article about PSB speakers and the five songs that they suggest you trying on your speakers to see how they do. They are:

5) "Bloom" ODESZA
4) "Where Have You Been" Rihanna
3) "It Could Be Sweet" Portishead
2) "Limit To Your Love" James Blake
1) "Fantasy" The xx

How did your speakers do?

Focal has long been the best high end brand of headphones with the two models they have out. They now have Focal Listen Wireless headphones that should satisfy even the most picky of audiophile. https://www.cnet.com/news/a-french-approach-to-design-headphone-design/

I'll be the first to admit that I am willing to spend a buck load of money on something if it's worth it. How much are you willing to pay for good speakers or headphones?

What are the best outdoor setups for speakers? So many of the built-in setups sound tinny unless you spend real money, so are there any quick tips you can give me to make outdoor sound sound better?

I have heard that some people say that interconnect cables are better than regular cables for sound quality. The difference may be subtle, but for a price not too high, it's a pretty good barter. What is your experience?

I have one of those small Bose room speakers that I use with my tablet via Wi-Fi. It's great!! I leave the tablet inside, take the speaker with me on the deck and adjust the volume accordingly. This is the first Bose for me other than a system in a previous car and I'm very impressed.

There is a friend of mine who loves to assemble speaker parts on his own. He's never bought one before. I always tell him that it would be much better if he went commercial. I cannot trust myself with such a task and I had rather buy a ready one.
