Indeed Artnovion has panels with designs that fit any type of room environment.

Ok lets continue...

First of all brief introduction of myself: I am from Barcelona (Spain) but living in Jakarta (Indonesia) and here the audiophile sector is not as developed as in your country, so i dont have all options you have and experts here dont seem that expert to me... that is why i prefer to have your advice.

So... the first company sent me proposal and as i expected they send me proposal without coming to my place. This seems quite weird to me. You are giving a prescription without visiting the sick person.

This is their proposal:

4 Absorbers (left and right side) (total cost 588 usd)
2 Basstrap (on the corner) (total cost 588 usd)
2 Diffusor (behind speaker) (total cost 515 usd)







I asked him about the ceiling. He said no need.

So basically i dont trust these guys but waiting for your opinion.

Then, the second company that i contacted sent me whatsapp asking me What is wrong with the music, what are the problems... so basically these second guys are trying to understand the problem before sending their proposal... i already like them more... i was exchanging some whatsapps and just waiting for him to tell me to come see by himself.. but he was not telling me... so finally i said "Dont you think you should maybe come to my place to see the patient?" and he said yes of course... so now waiting for this person to come...

There is a cure!

I did a demo at home with some panels and what a difference! I can live with this sound.

Basically they put Diffusor behind the amp, basstrap on both corners and absorbers on the side.

Now i need to find a solution for absorbers to make them like a stand and customize colors.

I see from your recommendations that you mention to put a panel also in ceiling on top of listener position. I will ask them to do also.

But overall very pleased with the solution from a sound point of view.

Aestethically... well.. i guess i will learn to live with that... if i customize colors and match all of them... they will not look that bad.

First time i play with acoustic treatment.. and it is as you always mention in this Forum... what a difference it makes... like magic.
