Bass is much better defined, rather than a "roar", soundstage is much deeper, behind the wall on some recordings, instruments and voices are firmly located. Orchestras are no longer just a blob of sound and there is much more space around instruments and the whole is "airier". I am very happy with it. Sounds ALMOST as good as Steve's room Wink

Very cool setup!  I am curious -- are you running Sunlight firmware on the DAC? I know that improved separation between instruments in my system.

whatever the latest upgrade was. I think it was sunrise. Yes, it made a noticeable improvement overall. Quieter background I think.

Nice work on your room.  I was wondering about the diffusers in the front, I went online to piaudiogroup, and found them.  It sounds like they sell them in two pair at a time.  In your room, do you have 8 pair of diffusers from left to right - about 16 feet?  Would you recommend  them? Thanks in advance for the information.

Tony, I have the very same diffusers from PI Audio Group. Indeed they come in 2 pairs, one female and one male to each pair. I bought mine unpainted, and did them myself with 8 coats of paint....the paint was an eggshell finish, and mixed with classic Elmer's glue as a hardener.

lazb has a very similar treatment setup as I do, on the front wall....in his case its 1 full set [2 pairs].

I can tell you they are extraordinary and far more than worth the cost. In my small 12x10 room, I have discovered them to be absolutely critical, part of an overall approach. They cause much more clarity and rid the room of muddiness, flutter echo. These, coupled with good carpeting on top of rubberized "waffle" padding [can be hard to find] make all the difference, changing the sense of air/spaciousness and soundstage to more akin to that of a much larger room.

I very highly recommend you contact Dave at PI Audio.

Hi Brad,
Thanks for the information.  This sounds like the best approach for diffusers that I have heard so far.  I'll contact Dave for more I info.

Hiya Tony,

You're very welcome. Looking forward to what shakes out on your conversations with Dave. He's the real deal, knows what he's talking about, on top of being a great guy.
