Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

Tateo Nakajima's comments on this week's Riptide item about sound quality disparities at the Carnival Center Oct. 5 opening came too late to be included in the paper:

The hall has a wide range of uses, and finding a balance between those uses is an ongoing challenge. We still have a year's worth of work ahead of us, changing the surfaces of the halls to perfect the sound.

Everyone is looking for a quality experience, but where you sit changes the experience. In an amplified setting (using the loud speakers), you should be not too close to the stage, at least halfway back. But not all the way back on the ground floor, (where) the sound will be absorbed.

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
