    I have been using DRC for many years and learnt how to create filters by reading Mitch’s book and other sources.
    For most, with a somewhat decent system DRC using a capable software is most likely the best improvement vs cost you can get – and the same goes for Mitch filter creation service!
    Having already a good setup with my own filters this was another step change. In addition, since the process is fully transparent and Mitch a good teacher, you learn a lot.
    I warmly recommend this service even to seasoned Acourate users.

    I can measure and make DRC filters on my own with Audiolense, but what Mitch does exceeds anything I can do on my own.
    He will help you measure, create a filter and convolution files, and then work on iterations till you get the sound you want.
    Mitch is easy to work with and responds quickly to emails.
    His work will improve the sound of your system more than any tweak or HW upgrade.

    I have a DIY active audio system at home, and like many audiophiles, I’m always on the lookout for that elusive perfect sound. I had heard about digital room correction and started researching, which led me to Audiolense and then to Mitch, an expert in the field of DRC.

    From the moment I contacted him, I knew I was dealing with a professional who takes his work very seriously. The measurement process was smooth and, in fact, quite enjoyable, thanks to the guidance and advice that Mitch provided throughout. The filters he created completely transformed my listening experience. The bass is now firm and defined, and the overall soundstage feels much wider and more immersive.

    The most noticeable change was in the detail and clarity of the music. It was as if someone had removed a veil from the sound that I didn’t even know was there. Instruments and vocals now have a brightness and presence that wasn’t there before. I can now pinpoint every sound with precision, and everything seems to be in its right place, like at a live concert.

    Beyond his technical expertise, Mitch’s service has a personal touch. He took the time to understand my setup and personal preferences, then customized the filters to get the best performance from my system. He even gave me tips and suggestions for future improvements after analyzing the measurements. His ability to understand and apply measurement data left me impressed.

    If you’re serious about audio and want to take your system to a completely new level without spending a fortune, Mitch is the person to call. His digital room correction isn’t just another tweak; it’s a radical change. You don’t need to spend thousands on equipment to get a great result; you just need to know where the key to improving audio quality lies. Mitch’s work might be the most significant improvement I’ve made to my system. This is pure science applied with a masterful touch, and I couldn’t recommend it more.

    I was never a fan of room correction. I tried Dirac and ARC in the past, which I found messed quite a bit with the character of my speakers. Even though I have invested in room treatments and my system already measures pretty well, Mitch managed to build filters that resulted in a substantial sonic improvements. Using a quick and easy measurement, the results with his filters are nothing short of astonishing. Bass is tighter and punchier, vocals have incredible clarity and the soundstage is now wider and taller. The benefits did not stop there as Mitch is a great teacher and has armed me with enough knowledge to fine tune by myself, and also regenerate filters in the future if I swap components or change speaker placement. IMHO this is the single most impactful upgrade you can make to your system for the outlay. Incredible value and wholeheartedly recommended.

    After learning of Mitch’s services through Audiophile Style and watching his video on “Understanding the ‘state of the art’ of Digital Room Correction,” I decided to contact Mitch and take the plunge, despite my minimal technical knowledge and my 72 year-old ears. I have a purely 2 channel system (Aesthetix Atlas Eclipse amp, Zesto Leto 1.5 preamp, Bricasti M3 streaming dac, and Magneplanar 3.7i speakers) and have the good fortune to have a listening room that is free of bass issues or early reflection issues that needed to be corrected. And yet, even my unproblematic setup and excellent system was dramatically improved by the filter sets Mitch created.

    The process of taking sweeps of my room proved to be much easier than I expected (after Mitch helped me to troubleshoot a minor problem with the Bricasti’s ethernet input), as was the installation of the filter sets in Roon. The first 2 filter sets he generated helped him to get a sense of my listening preferences and then the next 2 filter sets further refined the sound. His familiarity with Maggies also helped as he tweaked one of the filter sets to best take advantage of the ribbon tweeter. The end result has greatly enhanced the musical experience for my wife and me. In particular, there is a significant increase in clarity and depth of field, like a photo or video coming into proper focus. Front to back layering of the soundstage has dramatically improved–this is particularly noticeable with orchestral works–as has timbral accuracy. The best way to describe the improvements is to say that Mitch’s work has greatly enhanced the illusion of being transported into a performance space, rather than listening to an electronic reproduction of a musical event. I’m sure there is a good scientific explanation for this, but to me, it seems like magic.

    After experiencing what Mitch has been able to accomplish with my system, I wouldn’t dream of listening without his DRC.

    I have been using Mitch’s services several times over the years and I am one very happy customer. All of us strive to take our audio system to the next level and there is a myriad of mods and tweaks available for purchase. A large number of them are just snake oil or influence the sound of one’s system in a subtle and hard to detect way. Let me tell you one thing: Mitch’s DRC filters are in a completely different category. And I couldn’t think of any other way of significantly improving one’s audio system without having to spend thousands of dollars on component and speaker upgrades.

    I am not very good with putting my listening experiences into words but Mitch’s filters perfectly balance out the sound. Everything sits in the mix where it is supposed to sit and there is great coherence. I recently bought a pair of subwoofers. They perform great in my system but I could hear that the bass was coming from several sources. So I remeasured my room and Mitch modified the filters for me. Now the subwoofers integrate perfectly into the mix. The bass now appears to come just from one source and there is great synergy between my speakers and my subs. Seamless integration.

    I am sure I could make DRC filters myself but I would have to spend a significant amount of time on reading up about the whole topic. But there is no way that those filters would sound anything like Mitch’s filters sound like. One is not just paying for Mitch’s technical expertise in making the filter but mainly for his experience which he acquired over many years. And for that, the price Mitch charges is indeed very reasonable and great value.

    Apart from all of the above, Mitch is a great and generous guy who goes above and beyond to achieve a great result and communication is top notch. So do yourself a favor and let Mitch elevate your system to the next level.

    My condo living room is my listening room. I have bass traps and acoustic treatment but could never eliminate or tame some prominent bass standing waves in my room. On my own I tried speaker placement and seating position changes but only was able to just make it better. Decided it was a real detraction to the music and found Mitch doing DSP correction which was probably the only way to fix it. It was. I was not familiar with REW or taking measurements but Mitch guided me perfectly which I did need. I got some correction filters to try based on my room measurements and loaded them into Roon. Problem was solved and I had been living with it for over 20 years! Mitch asked for feedback on the first filter such as high and low frequency balance and took that feedback to make any adjustments and sent another one to listen to. End result was on all types of music genre from all types of artists, all sound great. I just listen to music now at all volume levels with no issues. I can honestly say there is no downside to DSP if done correctly which Mitch does very well. Communication was great. Every question I asked was answered and explained. Highly recommended.

    With my electrical engineering education I did not think this was possible but great technological tools in the hands of someone that knows how to use them has produced an amazing result. My system has never sounded like this and I saved the room treatment hassles which is a bit of gamble. Mitch gave me 2 to 4 extra “tweaks” even after I told him I was happy but he wanted to further improve the measurements and I could hear the difference. This is not mystery snake oil. This is science, you can measure it and hear it. I did both.

    I used Mitch’s service to help me learn how to develop FIR filters on my own. He of course also provided filters along the way to help guide me. My listening room is also our living room and seems to change configuration every 6 months so I wanted to learn the process so I could update the filters as the room is modified. I was already a user of the Audiolense software but with Mitch’s guidance we ended up switching to Acourate since it was more accommodating of my unusually asymmetric room setup – both s/w packages are excellent. Mitch consults with the creators of both Acourate and Audiolense (and others) so you get not only his experience but that of the top DSP software developers. Over the course of a few months we exchanged several dozen emails. Mitch was always quick to reply to questions and I can’t imagine that I would be able to run Acourate (as I am now) without someone like Mitch to guide me. The best product Mitch gave me was a narrated video recording of his computer screen showing each step of the Acourate filter development process for my setup – priceless.

    If you’re not interested in deep diving into how to develop filters on your own, I’m sure Mitch will provide a multitude of sample filters to choose from. I think this is what most users do. I also ended up purchasing Mitch’s Hang Loose Convolver since the quick switching between filters really helps illustrate how one filter differs from another. Mitch’s service is well worth the investment and has my highest recommendation.

    Getting a SOTA digital room correction (DRC) software is the single best investment to improve an audio system, in terms of “audio quality improvement per dollar spent”. These DRC are far more powerful than systems like Audyssey or Dirac, however they are not easy to use. On my own, I got decent results for 2.0 and 5.4.2
    Accurate Sound calibration service brought my system to the next level, with an incredible bass tightness, clarity, and overall sound quality; all of this despite a small, complicated room. A/B test with my previous filters was like lifting a veil on my speakers. Mitch is great to work with, and his suggestions are insightful and pragmatic. With hindsight, I should have invested in this way earlier (definitely before spending on room treatment). Super value!
