I wanted to share pics on how I set up my acoustic panels. I recommend adding them to your listening room, they really do work.

Nice, I do something similar in my living room. Some are permanent, some stay out for listening but can be put away if I choose. They definitely make a huge improvement, and it's cumulative. The more treatments the better

Looks great, Mar!

Just out of curiosity, how did you decide on, or detemine, the ratio of absoportion panels to diffusion panels?

I like that pattern of Impressions-series diffusors from GIK you chose; that's the pattern I would go for as well.

Very nice! I used a combo of Vicoustic, GIK and Acoustimac. By far, one of the biggest noticeable changes, even with my so so hearing... Night and day.

PC, GIK recommended a specific number of square footage for my listening area, I decided to mix and match the type of panels based on sound absorption, diffusion & sound absorption and aesthetics with a lean towards the latter.

Night and day for sure. I am going to add a few above my listening also, I hear this works very well.
