After seeing his many, many impressive systems, and his builds over at HomeBuiltHiFi, I'm sure his equipment list would be nearly a book.

Has to be a combination, jubilees were designed for full sized theaters, and that looks like a kids version of the poäng chair

Do you have room treatments elsewhere in this room? (maybe along the back?)

Have you tried room treatments at all?

Thanks NP. I generally don't use room treatments besides what I can tweak on my own. The room is 11x17 so it's set up nicely to begin with. I use a shag run in front of the one you see, and the cloth roman shades behind the system also work well. Beyond that, I have some plants positioned on the side wall and behind me. The room sounds great, so I see no need to tweak it and sacrifice the current aesthetics.

Interesting picture . . . Nice color contrast. Is it a restaurant or you dinning room table? And what are the 2 silver colored vertical 'pipes'? Are they used to hold a limbo bar?

It's my office, the table is for small reunions.
The vertical 'pipes' are 'torches'.
