Like Big Red Machine say sounds good to me, treat the side walls and hopefully the room will appear wider. I would also treat all other walls too.
I tried that years ago and could not tame all the reflections from behind me. You pick up soundstage but get a bunch of confusing reflections from behind your head.Which speakers? I'd rather treat the sidewall and get the speakers outward for a wider stage on the short wall. That gives you some more depth of seating.
Are there any photos in your Gallery that show a wide view of the room with the system in it? Anyone trying to make suggestions to you will benefit from seeing that.
Not much toe-in there. Maybe you can squeeze them a little wider. Are sitting in the couch or a chair in front of the couch? Or, what is your triangle?
Could you get panels you can move in and out when needed? In my room I have windows on the right, so I made some DIY panels I can put in place when listening.
I believe my system sounds far better than what I'm getting out of it. My room may not be wide enough for the soundstage to blossom. My room is 13'x20' with an 8' ceiling. The system is set up on the short wall. I have the speakers set 4 feet from the back wall and about 3 feet from the side walls. Should I consider setting up the speakers on the long wall? The downside is that I would lose depth (only about 3 feet behind me if I listen critically in nearfield).
Let me be blunt. I think you are right -- it's the room. It is lovely, but it appears to have six reflective surfaces (walls, ceiling, floor). A big echo chamber. So far, you have rejected all suggestions for improving it. So my advice is, think about what could you accept?
Early, Have you tried bringing speakers out from front wall ? A third of room length in. We set rooms either by 1/3, 1/4 or 1/5 depending on speaker.
I have a similar room and placing speakers (currently Maggies) sounds better, especially soundstage, on the long wall (no special room treatment). Don’t be afraid to try it. Just because it doesn’t work for someone else doesn’t mean it won’t work for you. Every room is different; experiment!
You're no doubt suffering from audiophile nervosa, always itching for improvements.
