Heavy velvet curtains with backing in front. Carpet and pad up to listening seat. reflective open space 4' behind listening seat. Tube traps with hard sides facing back of OB loudspeakers for dispersion.
Well damped room. The system is VERY transparent and images well. Cost no object Resolution from 500hz up. Sub bass will shudder the room down to 16hz. I would like a bit more impact at 80-250hz. (60's Altec Model 19 mid-bass). I also sometimes miss a bit of "tube warmth" (Cary 805's), but the detail and resolution from the system are just as addicting although for different reasons.

The system is very energy efficient and produces very little heat. Great for Southern California summers.
