The feeling of anticipation continues. The room has been finished for 3 weeks but I haven’t listened to one song yet. I had to wait for the room finished before I could address the acoustic treatment/placement.

Now I’m waiting for the proposal from Vicoustics. Ugh!

Happy for you Mark and congratulations. Now comes the really fun part of tuning the room, defining listening and speaker positions for the optimal sound for you.

Thank you all for your kind words. I just put up the 4 stillpoint apeture panels. Paul from stillpoints suggested centred behind the speakers would give me the best results...and he was right.
Ill update soon with pics but Im still amazed at what these little 22x22 inch wood boxes can do.
If I had the $ to spend, Id cover all my wall, top to bottom with those panels.

Still waiting for Vicoustics proposal...

Default Bodiezaffa gets his music room

This is the most recent shot with the gear set up, the aperture panels on wall and my new acquired listening chair. Btw, that chair glides and swivels which is a hug plus for someone who can’t sit still. Lol

Hi all.

Finally got around to taking a few shots of my room with all the gear set up.
As many of you predicted, the transformation of sound in beyond my expectations.
If any members are in the Toronto area, drop me a line. Music is best enjoyed with some spirits and company!
