Re: Mic alignment feature of Acourate

Another novice question about Mic alignment, as this feature is new to me.

I have meticulously placed the speakers in the room so that the distances to sidewalls and backwalls are identical for both speakers. When I now put the recording microphone at the listening position, exactly in the middle of the two main speakers, the mic alignment is not perfect according to LSR3. It tells me to move the mic a bit to the right.
Is this because different room reflections from right and left speakers? There are windows on the left, but not on the right.
What is the best way to deal with this situation? Move the mic to alignment? Ignore the misalignment? Or move the speakers so that they are not symmetrical in the room anymore?

Thank you!

The mic alignment shows the pulse responses on the click signals in the chart. So you can see if the curves match properly.
The alignment is quite precise. Instead of moving the mic you can also move a speaker accordingly
Stay well tuned
