Is there a reason you haven't gone with a fabric panel solution to hide the speakers and acoustic treatments? This would not affect the sound, but would make the room look so much better. Sorry if I sound negative, but I just think your room/equipment has so much potential, and its a shame to limit the experience by having speakers/subs and ugly treatments all over the place :S
You don't sound negative at all. Having different tastes than me is OK
. The first thing I did with my Procella P6/P10 setup was remove the grilles. I love the look of the Procella speakers...drivers and all! I did the same thing with the P610/P15 setup.
The treatments are awesome looking IMHO. I chose black for the walls on purpose as well. I didn't even use cable covers to hide the speaker cables. They copper colored wires bundled together lining the baseboard add to the raw/peel back the skin theme I wanted. I guess I envisioned the room as a "lifting the hood" theme, where the functional beauty of all the is left untouched....to be admired. Is a the hood more beautiful than the complex and twisting 500 hp engine beneath? I guess that depends who is looking.
If you want to get really bothered, did I you notice I set the P610's on cement paving stones?
I guess it all boilers down to taste. And while my taste may be bad if you took a poll, I styled it after my own.
Lastly, these pictures were taken with a smartphone and the flash does nasty things especially when the walls and treatments are painted matte black. The room looks much better in person, all else being equal.
