Then I can build the first reflection point absorbers. Iíll probably add a skyline diffuser at the back to complete the treatment if I can be bothered!
    You might want to consider hanging a triangular sail up in ceiling, an often overlooked large reflective flat expanse, I threatened this in our lounge and even though I gave a list of aesthetic and artistic reasons SWMBO firmly put her foot down and waggled her finger and head at me. I think I was pushing my luck a bit.

    Looks a very nice 'den'. Like the rack.

    The thought did cross my mind, will any future owner spend ages converting it back into a garage?

    As Glen already has some acoustic insulation my offer is now open to other members. Namely, an unopened pack of Rockwell acoustic insulation. The pack contains 4 blocks, each 100mm thick and measuring 1200mm x 600mm. The 100mm version is the sweet spot for acoustic panels, and 1200mm x 600 mm a good sized acoustic panel.

    Free to anyone who can collect from Warsop in North Notts (on the edge of Sherwood Forest).

    Out of curiosity, what materials did you use to make the bass traps and has it made much difference to the acoustics?

    I actually used three pieces of arris rail, I think they call it, as it's cut in a triangle shape. With a board top and bottom. Then some RWA45 insulation I had spare. Wrapped in burlap/Hessian.
    It's certainly tamed any tendency to boom. The bass seems fully controlled. With some test tracks I don't feel the need to turn it down at all, which is a good thing I suppose.

    At the insistence (yeah right!) Of my daughter, I 'had' to buy a TV for the room. A nice 65" Panasonic OLED fit the bill nicely. I have to say the picture quality from 4k and Standard Blu-Ray is astonishing.
