Simply put – P.A.I.D.™ is a comprehensive proprietary high-end audio system design criteria / process that is integrated into the early stages of the architectural design & build process.
Working closely with your design professionals (architects, interior designers), P.A.I.D.™ takes into consideration, – beginning at the inception of the design process – architectural acoustics, psycho acoustics, electro acoustics, computer aided design technology including room model acoustic simulation & prediction, acoustic test & measurement, and most importantly, 25 years experience in professional audio. As a result of this comprehensive collaborative oriented approach, P.A.I.D.™ produces an exceptional high-end audio acoustical listening experience no matter what the application.
By incorporating P.A.I.D.™ early in the architectural design & build process, one can avoid common, sometimes costly, mistakes made when audio/acoustic related objectives are addressed independent of the architectural design phase, and long after crucial decisions have been made that can profoundly affect the quality and performance of the listening environment. This is especially true with respect to critical listening environments, nightclubs, bars, and restaurants.
To sum it all up, the objective of P.A.I.D.™ is not only to create an exceptional listening environment that produces a highly enhanced acoustical sense of depth, clarity, intimacy, and spaciousness – measurable acoustical attributes, what audiophiles refer to as the “soundstage” – its objective is also to create a synergistic relationship and bridge between the design professional’s objectives, and the client’s audio system / acoustic performance criteria.
Its A Marriage Of Science & Art!
The Simple Truth
If you put a great audio system in a less than optimal or poor listening environment, you will get less than optimal or poor results.
The acoustics of any listening environment can have a profound affect on the quality of the listening experience.
SYMPTOMS OF A POOR LISTENING ENVIRONMENT
Ringing in the ears
Uneven frequency response
Poor speech/vocal intelligibility
Poor & inefficient bass response
Feedback during live performances
Poor stereo or surround sound perspective (soundstage)
Disturbance to those who are not meant to be disturbed
Lack of an acoustical sense of clarity, depth, intimacy, and
Just to name a few.

Kevin helped us define, procure and install our audio system in our loft, and he did a superb job. We still enjoy our sound system to this day, years after installation! Thanks, Kevin!!!!

Our club has always had a decent sound system but a GREAT sound system installed by KGMUSIC1 is already paying dividends. My clientele noticed the difference immediately and are loving the sound! How is it that you can have a full rich sound and still be able to carry on a conversation? You get KGMUSIC1 to engineer the sound…. I’m sold!

More to come!
To truly grasp the concept and the impact behind P. A. I. D.™ lets proceed with a simple demonstration you can do at home right now!
All you will need is a really good pair of headphones, one that completely covers your ears, and a music playing device such as an ipod, in which you can play music thru the head phones!
So let’s begin!
First – Place the headphones on a table in front of you so that each headphone is unobstructed and facing you.
Second – Play your favorite music loud enough so that it can be easily heard thru the headphones while resting on the table in front of you.
Can you hear the rhythm, the vocals, the instrumentation relatively clearly? If so… Great!
You are now hearing the sound!
Finally – without changing anything else, place the headphones over your ears!
Hear the difference!!!
The only thing that has changed is the listening environment – in this case the positioning of the speakers! Same headphones, same music, same volume, only now you are making more efficient and optimal use of your audio system – able to enjoy all the nuances and power that your music has to offer.
