How to get good sound at low volume

Most of our listening is at moderate sound volume, even for those of us that enjoy the excitement and physical impact from full-scale sound reproduction.

Casual listening to music, watching documentaries, tv-series. Low volume is relaxing, it is possible to continue listening for hours without fatigue.

A good sound system will sound much better also at low volume, and actually allow you to reduce the volume without loosing much of the experience. You will not get the physical tactile impact, but most of the other aspects of good sound can still be present.

I will try to explain how sound at lower volume can be improved, and how you can achieve this in your own room.
