Hi folks, I'm happy with my stereo set-up but think it's time to focus more on what I can do to improve the room acoustics. A diagram showing my room layout is below. I realise the speakers are too close to the wall and my sitting position is too close to the back wall, but it's a fairly compact place and it is a "family room". The speakers are standmounts on a very solid entertainment unit. We have wooden floorboards, hard walls/ceiling etc. I would describe the sound as precise and the bass is punchy, but I suspect the room is making the upper-mids a bit harder than they should be ... the overall sound could be a bit more cohesive and "well rounded", with a better soundstage. Things I would be able to do: * Add tasteful(!) wall (and maybe roof) treatments * Add mini stands under the speakers * *Maybe* put the speakers on separate stands and move them further apart. Things I can't do: * Re-arrange the room layout significantly (if I can move anything, it might be by a centremetres) * Move the speakers further away from the wall (this has been attempted a couple of times but they mysteriously move back) * Turn the room into a shrine for black foam. Based on the diagram, could anyone suggest room treatments and where I might position them (understanding I'll need to experiment a bit). Any suggestions that keep this enterprise to a three-figure budget also greatly appreciated.
