Anyway, you ordered it...(unless I misunderstood something.) So I'm looking forward to the review, after you've had it a week or 2. :)

^^Ohh...when I saw room acoustics mentioned, I thought of how one reason I postponed my plans to get subwoofers is that I want to do some room treatment, but before I do that, I need to get the place painted.

I need that more for making videos than for listening to music. A lot of outdoor noise comes into the home right now.

I was reminded of this when I saw this pic today - with diffuser/absorption panels over the windows. (They're moveable. His standard diffuser panels, attached somehow to the window frames, I suppose.)

Some interesting pics - I like seeing pics of home studios, I got to this from his Youtube video on room acoustics.
I'm just going to do some panels like this, which is expensive enough for me, but I'm concerned about them getting dirty, the fabric covering, so maybe just acoustic foam, at least I could just unhook them them and wash them in the bath.

What is best for one person is the worst for another person as people have different hearing and preferences.

Go to a dealer and listen to a few in your price range (You can use reviews as a guide to whittle down the number

Buying without hearing (No matter how good the reviews and other people’s opinion are) is a recipe for dissatisfaction, but you may be lucky. (The odds are though that you won’t)
