Wonderful set up.  Suggest you taken down the inexpensive foam which only dulls the sound and try even dispersion like the below link.  You want sound evenly distributed not killed off.  You've already got a rug to help dull reflections.  My sound is live but even.

That's a lot of hi-end gear crammed into a small space. With the tight space and near field listening it must be akin to listening to headphones.

Now that’s what I call a man cave :-) Gorgeous and very thoughtful ensemble of gear, I bet your system keep you up into wee hours of the night. Enjoy!

Really great looking system and cool room it really does look like a showroom. And it must sound amazing in the fully tweaked room and love the Pass Class A/Harbeth pairing!

Уверен, у вас отличная система и хороший звук! комната сделана правильно, но есть (визуально) ощущение, что она несколько заглушена ... видимо пол не очень твердый? - пол из цельного дерева важен для хорошего правильного баса (не подходит ламинат и рыхлая стяжка)

Thank you! Actually, the wood floor is an old, solid Oak hardwood floor, but covered with a large rug. I've considered taking up the rug and exposing the wood, but worried about reflections. (There was previously a smaller rug in here, but I got a bigger one and liked the added damping. But now the room is basically over-damped, it's a bit studio "dead" sounding, but I've gotten used to it.

Nice room, very inviting. VPI front end, Pass electronics, Harbeth speakers - what's not to like? Compact 7's are one of the best all around speakers on the planet. Chill and enjoy, Man!
