+1. In fact, out of nearly 500 pages in his book, he only devotes 8 pages specifically to control rooms (although he does mention them in several other places). His book is not about control rooms: it is mainly about speakers, the ways they can be measured, and what that means in real-world terms, outside of the anechoic test chamber. They way the behave in control rooms is only a very small part of the overall coverage of his book.
