Dedicated 2 channel mid-sized listening room converted from a spare bedroom. 90% of the acoustic treatment is made with cedar and pine as fun DIY projects built over the past 5 years.

Front, rear and one of the side walls have DIY sound diffusers based on Tim Perry's (Arqen) fractal designs (

Ceiling above listening position treated with DIY two-dimensional QRD diffuser.

Ceiling in the front of the room is angled to minimize parallel surface areas and front side walls covered with standard 48x24x2 absorbing panels to eliminate flutter echo.

Floor is covered with regular carpet, but I use wool rug in the listening position to minimize 1st reflections coming from the floor.

Thank you for the compliment toro3. :) I don't post much, so I believe that's why it stays under the radar...


In the world of Virtual Systems on Audiogon, I’m astonished this system only has 330 views over the course of the past two years. Favorited months ago and something to strive for, especially in respect to DIY room treatments/diffusion. Great pics as well!
