1 Answer 1


If you mean general questions about hi-fi, then the answer is probably not (unless you are asking about listening to your recordings on consumer devices as part of the mixing process).

If you mean questions about studio monitors / headphones then yes they are on topic.

Update According to the FAQ, live sound engineering questions are on topic too, so your example of a question about playback in theatre is fine.
