System, 10-2023. Pre-treatment.

Recommended Posts

Music has never sounded better despite minimal room treatment. Doing what I can to learn the basic acoustics principals since there's no shortage of conflicting info out there. However, the consensus seems to be that there can be transformative improvements from well designed room treatment so that's where I'm heading.LR1-2.thumb.jpg.2829e8e70d01fd82eba3c8609038248d.jpgSystem_10-2023.thumb.jpg.dc563ea232015bcd8ded08e2350aff1a.jpg

Thanks Bob! I appreciate the feedback. I have the TV on an articulating wall mount. The TV can be pulled out from the wall and turned toward the sofa and all I do is sit facing the TV. I searched the room for a better location but the TV wound up at the first reflection point of the right channel speaker. Not ideal but that's one of my room treatment challenges I think. I plan on covering the TV with a thick rug and placing a half round diffuser in the area of first reflection. I'm open for any recommendations in that regard.

Ahh, that makes sense. And, so does putting a rug or drapery over it.

I would try adding more wall hangings, shelves, and objects around the room/walls. Nothing beats lots of reflecting/diffusing materials- And, it looks nice, too.

I always keep thinking i need to treat my room, but then I listen to rooms that are treated and they sound dead as they are over done.  I know there may be areas I need looking into, but I’d have to make sure it looked nice too as it’s a ‘Living’ room (the loft which is used by everyone).  I love reading about how you guys treat rooms and the pics are best for me.  Thanks for sharing.
