    Ive just completed revamping our HT and the acoustics... even with the new reciever, new speakers, and tv... is still not quite what i want it to be.... no matter what i do the sound can seem dry or localized at times... the walls are textured somewhat... and the weird room design and opening into a stairwell might be part of the cause... but any opinions/ideas/comments would be appriciated.... i love my system... but as they say "one is always looking for a way to make it better".... lol (the links to the pictures and equiptment list are in my signature) Thanks!!

    thedude,

    Take a look over at Do It Yourself Home Theater section of this forum where acoustics tweaks are discussed. You might re-post your question there for some help.

    No matter how much high quality equipment you add to your A/V system you will never be able to overcome the acoustic limitations of the room. The only way to improve the acoustics of the room is to deliberately and skilfully alter them with Room Treatments.

    About 6 years ago a friend of mine who works at a Recording Studio recommended Auralex Studiofoam for sound diffusion in my listening room.



    I bought 1 box of 2" Pyramid Studiofoam which contained a dozen 2' X 4' pannels and cost $220 which turned out to be the most well spent money ever on my Audio project because without the Studiofoam I loose most of the fine detail and venue ambience in the recodings I listen to due to Time Smearing because the sound is not reaching the listening position in a time cohesive manner.



    Check out the Auralex Website for more details and assistance with planning room treatment.
