    What it hasn't cured which has always been a problem is creating an accurate sound field, dialog/vocals, sounds like it is coming slightly from the left and not dead centre. The speakers are millimetre perfect away from the back wall and angled in the same, and my seat is dead centre. Auto calibration didn't help either (but I prefer not to use that and set my equipment to source direct anyway), but this is most certainly a room issue because the speakers are different distances away from the side walls as you can see from my pic's. So for now I think what I have is the best I can do, until I get a bigger/squarer room.

    Thanks for leaving the comment!

    Yeah, they made a difference. As you can see, my room is quiet small, and to be honest the speakers are probably too big for the room, the other problem is the distance between them isn't big enough, but the traps improved the sound, especially the low end. They have also cut down on reflection/echo, so I can now crank the system up more without distortion, and it sounds better the closer to reference volume I get!

    Although I can only really do that with CD's, movie tracks are loud enough at -30db.

    Hi Revolver,

    I have uploaded some pic's of my bass traps, the room is still far from being 'acoustics friendly', but they have certainly helped!

    My pleasure! I really like those Polk towers. I may go with Polk sometime down the line when I upgrade.

    No problem! Your acoustic panels look great. I have also just recently purchased some bass traps, of which I haven't yet taken pic's of. I can certainly hear the benefit, tighter bass response and they have cut down on sound echo/reflections.

    He Rev,
    Just wanted you to know that I went for the B&W683s with a HTM61 Center. Thanks for all your help.
