These questions were not on topic on AVP and it sounds like they were not present on SSD either. Do we have any interest in addressing the home theater/personal listening arenas or do we want to limit equipment questions to those that relate to sound production and design?
I agree, home theater and consumer/prosumer isn't the target demographic of SSD/SDSE. Other questions about amps, preamps, recorders, mics, plugins, software, libraries, sound books, etx are all fair game here.
The kinds of conusmer/prosumer questions dilute the energy/focus that this forums has been all about.
Music questions don't belong here either. UNLESS they are music as it related to one of the sound disciplines (example: music editor, scoring for film/tv, stems/splits/deliverables, music re-record mixing and music mixing in general as it relates to DM&E, etc).
Based on the fact it appears to have been off topic on both AVP and SSD, it seems like it should still be off topic here. For more information, you can see the original reasoning from AVP here.
There are certain topics related to home theater and audio that overlap with professional recording, such as acoustical room treatments--absorbers, diffusers, etc. These should be accepted.
