    Please excuse the crappy iphone image, but it's all I had with me while listening. 800D3.jpg

    Ahhh... acres of blue, back-lit Vu-meter porn!

    Some real room-treatment porn too. I suppose the heavy wooden slatting is intended to disperse? Or is it some sort of Helmholtz thing? I think he should have done the cubby hole too, both for looks and for sound. I'd worry about the reflections from that cupboard handle!

    But otherwise, short of pro-studio pics, this is the nicest-looking room treatment I've ever seen. Love the rug too :D

    For a Helmholtz resonator you need a closed vessel with an opening, those slats are WAF diffusors I think.

    That cable mess though. Eeek.

    Oh yes! Being an inherently messy person, I missed that.

    (There is no such thing as cable burn in. But accumulated layers of dust make all the difference!)

    This is a beautiful room, no doubt at considerable expense, even without the cost of the hi-fi porn. The alcove has an unfinished look.

    But hey... I guess this isn't the Interior D├ęcor Criticism thread :oops:

    Then there is the bear. Maybe Big D is on to something. :)

    Is this a basement remodel by chance? The first thing I noticed was the breaker panel box behind the $20k worth of McIntosh gear. I wonder if that means more or less hum?

    It's an apartment.

    It seemed to be lacking sub-bass (might that be the room's fault?), but as a whole it sounded beautiful.
