We've ordered new furniture, and I'll update photos on the Bryston picture thread once it arrives.
Keep posting those photos. I have carpeting, but under it, hardwood floors. I was about to take up the carpeting and have the hardwood floors varnished, but you may very well have changed my mind. Now, I think I will just get replacement carpeting so that my sound won't be too bright. Your equipment and room are quite impressive to say the least.

Do you use Roon by any chance? I also had WAF limitations in my room. Since I use Roon and have a Roon-ready player, I found a company that can develop convolution filters for Roon. These are room correction filters that can make your existing room sound better despite the limitations that you mentioned.

Yes--Roon exclusively for music. With Tidal and MQA, where available.

The Fathoms do a good of taming the bass. I really need to get REW to see what's going on.

I'd be interested in the solution you mentioned. Thanks!

Dave, as big as that room is, you may as well work on four more speakers for rears so you can get the maximum out of your SP-3 which looks stunning with the rest of your equipment.

Here is my music listening flow-path:

Roon Core -> Roon-Ready Player(s) -> SP3.

I connect the analog outputs of my Roon-Ready devices to the SP3 analog inputs and listen using the 2-Channel Bypass option. Note: I do NOT use the DAC in the SP3. (If the Roon-Ready player does not have a DAC, I use a separate DAC but still send the analog signal to the SP3.)

After installing the room correction filters in Roon Core and connecting to a Roon-Ready player as described above, the SP3 plays as if the SP3 had room-correction built in. The room correction filters (also called convolution filters) can compensate for certain deficiencies in your existing room. In your case the deficiencies could be lack of acoustic treatments, type of furniture and furniture layout, room finishes, etc.

In general terms the process involves the following:
1. In your own music room, use software and a microphone placed at the sweet spot (and nearby points) to create a room-response graph. REW can be used for this.
2. Using the room-response graph generated in step 1, you can develop a room correction filter for use with Roon Core. You can use software like Acourate for this. You can also send the room-response graph to a company that can develop the convolution filters for your room (that is what I did).
3. Then you apply the room-correction (convolution) filters to Roon Core. Once you enable the convolution filters in Roon Core, anything that you play via Roon will be room-corrected and that includes your Tidal streams.

For the record, the room is 20 feet wide, by 35 feet front to back, with most of that behind the seats. Peaked ceiling at about 12 feet high, and a hallway and a stairwell leading off to the left. The seats are 12-13 feet from the front wall.
