Awesome Anechoic Chamber: McIntosh Laboratories, 1979

Awesome Anechoic Chamber: McIntosh Laboratories, 1979

Looking at the Sound Egg Chair reminded us of some great retro images we saw from the 1979 construction of the anechoic chamber that McIntosh Laboratories used for testing their audio equipment.

Anechoic chambers are large rooms that are built so that there are no echoes or reverberation. Being an audio and DIY nerd I not only loved looking at the images, but also enjoyed reading the story on the construction of this chamber.

For those working with sound, have you ever been inspired to create something like this for your home?
