Re: Recording Tip 34: When printing a mix, I’ll often go to small speakers at low volume and turn on the TV to check the mix one last time
A tip I picked up while assisting on a Brian Eno session thirty years ago: go into another room while the mix is playing. I'll do a crossword puzzle, read ProSound News, or iron a shirt while listening - what I call secondary listening, as opposed to critical listening. It's amazing what flaws emerge under these conditions that aren't as obvious when in the optimum listening position.
