After the wildfires here in San Diego recently I think we can all relate to the need to have a backup of your stuff that is easy to grab and run with.

A New way to think about Acoustics

One of the ways I correlate the kitchen to a media room is to ask the client to consider the appliances as their equipment. The cabinetry and countertops are the acoustical treatment.
