    Just a couple of pictures of the present state of the room. Still a work in progress, but we're getting there...

    Glen,

    nice job. Not so sure about the DIY bass traps though. If you are interested, I have an unopened pack of Rockwell acoustic insulation you can have. It contains 4 1200mmx600mm blocks, ideal for 4 sizable acoustic panels. I bought two packs but found I only needed one pack for my listening room.

    Not sure where you are in South Yorks but you are probably not too far from me. PM me if you are interested.

    Very nice Glenn, I wondered how you were getting along, how are you finding it acoustically?

    I saw some identical bass traps in Carpetright's remnants corner

    But I really like your funky white equipment rack (the one between your speakers, not the Kallax). Exactly what I could do with, where did you get it if you don't mind my asking?

    Really nice listening space btw. Done a good job there

    First off, thank you all for your nice comments, it’s much appreciated! For the above quote, thank you Geoff, that’s a really nice gesture. I am in the process of making some bass traps as I have two packs of insulation left over. I was just waiting for the burlap material to arrive, which it did yesterday. Nevertheless, I appreciate the offer.

    It’s ok actually. Better than I thought it would be. It needs work though. There is still pretty bad flutter echo and I need to spend time placing the speakers correctly. I plonked them using the Cardas calculator and haven’t bothered to move then since. Bass needs a little more body for me, but I’ll wait until I’ve built the bass traps. Then I can build the first reflection point absorbers. I’ll probably add a skyline diffuser at the back to complete the treatment if I can be bothered!

    The rack is the one I’ve nicked from under the wife’s telly! It’s from Ikea as well, can be found here It’s called BESTÅ. There’s an additional glass top you can buy for it I believe. Here it is..
