    I love it... it looks soooooo cosy. The colour scheme is just what I would choose. Damn I wish I had a bigger house.... Just about to lose my office/ playroom to a nursery.... :D

    Thanks for the kind comments guys. :thumbsup:
    Believe it or not, the main room used to be a patient's waiting room for a doctor's surgery. The corridor you can see leads to the old patients' toilet and the consulting room, from where I'm typing.
    Some new gear on the way in there soon: I'll keep it up to date.

    The shelves are open at the back and the cupboard is big behind the equipment: It's about 7ft tall / 3ft wide.
    Thanks for the comments.

    Nice Edgyboy - nice to see someone else here who has the D7s - I thought I was alone! Am interested in knowing why you didn't go for the D7 sub? Also what are the dimensions of the room? Looks really great - well done!

    Room is about 5m x 4m.

    I didn't fancy the D7 sub - bit slow and flabby for me. The ASW750 is excellent and looks good too. Considered a Velodyne DD15 but budget wouldn't stand it.

    The walls are a Fired Earth colour called Nirvana. It's been discontinued though which is a shame as it has great depth to it.

    I have a few changes in mind - I am looking forward to seeing the Sim2 3X Lite.

    Thanks for the comments. :thumbsup:

    Edgeboy - that is a superb room. Can I just ask where you got your acoustic panels from / how much etc?!

    That really is a fantastic setup you've got there.

    I'm disappointed to see the paint colour is discontinued. Do you mind me asking what kind of colour it is, is it a shade of grey?

    I made the panels myself - 6mm MDF panels, curved at the edges, covered with wadding and then fabric, stapled to the rear.

    The paint colour is more of a brown with the tiniest hint of purple. Lovely warm colour.

    Edgeboy, at the risk of sounding a bit ignorant, could I ask you to go into a bit more details re the panels? I really like the look of those. Are you saying they are solid panels of MDF or are they frames? How efficient are they at reducing 'slap' echo etc? What is the wadding? and what is the fabric covering?

    Sorry about all the questions, I am dead jealous of those panels! (Hey, you couldn't make me some could you??!!!)

    OB1-1 you can make your own panels with rockwool and fabric, just make a frame to support and hang it, placed at first reflection points 1 panel 1200x600(ish) on either side will effectively control slap echo, obviously its not a total solution, but it will help out

    They are solid 6mm MDF panels - making a frame is not worthwhile as the sheets from B&Q etc are roughly the right size, you just need to round the corners off. That's all I did. The wadding was purchased from a fabric supplier. They are very effective at reducing slap echo. They only cost about £12 each inc fabric.
