At a reasonable level, reflections are good for imaging and spaciousness.
ultima2's dispersion and consistent frequency off access maintains the performance of the speaker.

My room is not symmetrical, has high ceilings, books cases and other dispersing characteristics.
Even so, without the two area rugs it is too hot/reflective.

It's true that Revel / Harman speakers tend to have very even dispersion, so treating the first reflection point is not quite as important as it is with most other speakers. Kevin Voecks recommends treating the first reflection point, Dr. Toole not so much (this came up at Harman Academy). As mentioned, leaving it untreated can give you more of a sense of spaciousness, under certain conditions (this was Dr. Toole's preference). It's NOT black and white, though, so please don't take this as a recommendation.

One factor to consider is application. Stereo systems might benefit from the spaciousness but multichannel systems might not.

In this case, why build speakers who minimize the difraction ?
