    Thanks for the feedback.

    Two 2'x 2' Stillpoint Apertures retail for $1498.

    $900. buys four 4'x2' Vicoustic Wavewood 120 panels, which would allow me to put one in the middle behind my speakers, two at the first reflection points and one on the wall behind my listening position.

    Just wondering which option will give me more bang for the buck.

    Gotta say, the stillpoints. 4 x 2 isn't enough for wave wood.

    I agree with this 100%!

    Also good results with one on each side of speaker.

    Re: Stillpoint Apertures

    I recently borrowed six of the Aperture panels from my dealer and invited some mates over for a listening and evaluation session.

    We all agreed that the "best bang for your buck" was two panels placed at the first reflection points on either side of the room.

    Next best position was behind the listener and the least effective was behind the speakers or in the centre position, behind the speakers.

    To be fair, there was little difference in solidifying the centre image by swapping out my existing Acustica Applicata DADD's which do a very good job of room tuning!

    Re: Stillpoint Apertures

    A very effective 3 way, (bass control, diffusor & absorber) acoustic panel worth checking out is the "Curve" by "Acoustic Geometry".
    Very well made and reasonably priced. Comes in many fabric choices to match your decor. Has wall cleats for mounting or stands are available. Well thought out product that delivers the goods.
    My System:
    A trusty old Pioneer PD-65 as a Transport, A Mac Mini with Curious Cables and an Uptone Audio Regen, and a Merrill Heirloom T.T. as sources. A Lampizator DAC to Fusion Audio Romance Cables to an Audio Horizons Tubed PreAmp, Coincident Frankenstein 300B monoblocks, Silnote Orion M1 speaker cables, Sonist Concerto 4 Speakers. DCCA Furutech and Kaplan Power cables, DIY Balanced power conditioner, Two dedicated 20Amp power lines. DIY corner traps and Acoustic Geometry Curves for room treatment.
