    I'm no expert, but I think some carpeting will help the sound.

    I hate carpeting, so it’s hardwood flooring through the whole house. I will have rugs in most rooms though.

    Nothing specialized like that here. This room will serve as much as a library as a home theater. The whole back wall will covered with books, which should help for sound defusing.

    Does Eric do Lores in hardwood veneer anymore. Those look awesome.

    Thanks. Just renting this house while we figure out the area and shop for our own house--building is also an option. The lease expires June 2021. We just got to town Tuesday and setting up the system was a top priority. The cocktail bar is coming soon.

    Not sure. These are the Lore Reference which do have the option on the dropdown menu for wood veneers. Best to give him a call. I'm going to guess the wait for veneers will be months.

    I have a dual Purpose room. Although during Covid it’s pretty much just been a music room.

    Agree with the kudos! Nice! Wondering, I know there's probably many manufacturers, but what are the theatre chairs? Three across ... thanks !

    Thanks!
    I’ll have to look up and let you know. I had 4 across but when I started to switch to mainly 2 channel I needed to move the 4th chair back so I could set in the sweet spot. I need to order 2 matching to finish off the 2nd row anyways.

    Hello keith65,
    It is an acoustic signature barzetti, not in production anymore , but last time I talked to the producer Hr. Frohnhöfer, he said that they do have some in stock.

    Wood is better for tuning a system/room, but the type of wood and how much to use is a science.
    Thick heavy walls are a place to start.
    Lot's of great info on Michael Greens website about wood and room treatment.
    I laminated this 3/4" Brazilian pine to two 1/2" layers of drywall with good result's, three walls out of four.

    Tim, I just have to ask you, isn't the Sun baking all the finish off the right side of your beautiful right speaker? The Sun will absolutely fade your speaker to nothing if left that way for a short period of time.

    It looks worse than it is. The windows are heavily tinted and because of the trees outside the windows the sun only comes in for a short time.
    If the sun does make it direct to the speaker I close the drapes.
    These Sonus Faber speakers have an incredible finish but I still wouldn't take any chances.
    Thanks :righton:

    Now I get it. I've seen your room and wondered how it could sound decent with wood paneling on the walls. My only experience with wood paneling and sound quality was in a house we lived in about 15 years ago. I moved my system from a 15x17 room with traditional dry wall construction to a 12x22 room with thin wood paneling on all four walls. I remember being shocked at the absence of bass in that room. The thin panels let the bass seep through. It was my first lesson in room acoustics.

    Looks like you figured it out.
