Description

Big speaker in a small room. Took me a while to circle back to the Thiel CS3.7. I was worried it would be too big for this room, but it is not fatiguing. I just implemented Digital Room Correction using Convolution file(s) running on ROON. Jaw dropping improvement in sound. The DRC perfected the sound frequency curve for my speakers in my room. Just brilliant stuff.

Those 6 computer screen on my desks are connected to 1 computer. The computer is silent and I remotely connect to other machines located in my garage or the cloud to do my work. So the office computer is always silent because the CPU is never taxed. This computer is also my ROON client. My ROON server is in the next room over connected by direct Ethernet.

Getting rid of the side desk and the plants have made the sound much improved. I am sending room measurements to Accurate Sound of Canada to make some Convolution files for my room. Measurements were taken with the room looking like the last 2 photots.

Nothing at ceiling or along the walls?
The traps at the corners behind the speakers- Was there too much bass?
Just curious.

New pics look good. I would try putting a blanket over the windows/Venetian Blinds. You need to break up all that flat wall space, too.

I am almost of the opinion that you should put all the CD's and books in the closet and try listening with the doors reattached. Maybe put the Just a thought...
Not to sound like a broken record (if you have a kid, you probably don't remember), but the VLR's would really be a good fit in your room. They don't look like much, but they do sound great. The Treo's will work, too, considering their smallish size- and having them close to the walls should improve bass.
The VLR's are really good for the size, and price, but the Treo's are really amazing (and I owned the 3a sigs before them).
I really must post some pics of my setup, but I am trying to learn Jriver along with the Jriver Id. My poor old mind takes so long to learn these things nowadays.

I know there is something I am missing, but I need to sleep on it.

Yes, I can understand wanting floor standers. My VLR's are very good, but the Treo's are outstanding-Though I do use them with a pair of 2wq subs.
I can sympathize with your opinion about sub integration, but the use of the Vandy sub w/crossover makes integration seamless. IMHO.
I also think you would be able to put the desk back to get a full stereo image-especially if you add room treatments.
My one major change would be to get rid of the closet and open up the remaining space-and perhaps adding a second door at the corner. But, I know that would be big hassle.
Have you tried putting a blanket/rug over the window/shades to see if it makes things less reflective?

Can you get a shot of the other side of the room?
I have some ideas...

Where are you planning to place the speakers?

I still think you should look at a pair of Vandy VLR's. I think they will fit in you office perfectly. With a pair of HSU subs, you would be in heaven.
I'll try to post some pics of my office.
