    Totally agree. The thing is, most stores and also customers over do it. Stores are trying to sell as much as they can and have to show the various devices they sell. Then they get rooms that don't always sound the best and folks get used to hearing a damped presentation and think that it what sounds best. I now so many who pay someone to do a room evaluation and of course they need to make it seem like they are earning their keep. I have been using record racks, well placed quilts on the first reflection walls etc... and feel the room sounds pretty darn good considering how open it is as I'm in a loft. I also listen in a near field position that helps me not hear as much of the 'room'.

    I find the Vicoustic panels do a good job for the money.

    My room was transformed from a typical room to amazing room after using Vicoustics. The second you enter it your can hear your voice sound more "natural" and with less effort needed when speaking due to the lower noise within the room. It's was the right product for me to really combat room interactions.

    Agree Vicoustic and Art Novion do a great job and look great at the same time. I still find nothing better than ASC but augment my room with the Art Novion

    Ditto on Vicoustics. I saw and heard them at Mike’s. Decided to purchase a number of absorption panels and install corner bass traps. One of the best investments in audio I’ve ever made.

    So, as I wrote on this thread before, not only are Mike’s rooms fantastic looking they also sound great.
