does anyone know the criteria for meeting a true Ambechoic room? i am not sure full room (HF only) diffusion would correspond to the claim that it is ambechoic in the same sense as the room that defined the model, but clarification from the designers would be nice.

the true impact of the ambechoic model is the incredibly dense diffuse return.

I think the Ambechoic model is out of reach for most (due to the reasons stated above like true diffusion for not only the midrange frequencies etc.) and also worth remembering; the model is a solution for surround setups. It does not in other words, necessarily “replace” the normal LEDE/RFZ concept. It’s just a solution for specific needs (if you have the space and budget …!).
