lol, thanks for all the comments. haha.
I think since I'm used to the room, I made the statement while focusing on insignificant objects (such as the wii sitting upon the odd draw/shelf in the corner) and omitted the HT aspect. Most of my companions have similar rooms (besides the HT portion). The whole blank white walls thing seems to be more common than not, with little things placed across the room.
It also doesn't help that I was looking at the messy portions in my room without realizing they're not in the pictures.
I guess not experiencing the living styles of an adult, I figured the small room may appear to be an odd match for someone significantly older.
The only reason I've been able to go down this route is because I was always a conservative spender. Throughout all my childhood years I pretty much reserved my money and waited until a holiday or birthday to ask for anything (which I understand is quite lucky; I am of course grateful). After a couple years I had enough money (I also started working on a few tasks for my father at 16) and at this point I started getting involved into the critical aspects of music. At the time I had a logitech x540 set (a gift) that I used for xbox/tv. Then one day I realized, I could hook it up to my comp and play music, yay ^_^. Well, needless to say, that is where I started noticing the weakness's, and being the ocd guy that I am, I invested my savings into hi-end audio. I spent about a year researching everything so that I would be able to setup the system properly. I was already well aware that more money does not mean better, and that any system will need some manual calibration and adjustments. After finally getting everything setup, I spent the next 4 months experiencing severe paranoia (I really meant it when I said I have OCD). I moved all the furniture in my room multiple times, moved the speakers inches, centimeters, milimeters, micrometers even, just because if it wasn't "perfect", it wasn't good enough. Don't even get me started about toe-in. Both ears had to sound exactly the same, or within seconds I'd begin to breach the threshold of insanity. I repeated these process's ad infinitum, trying to make up for the inherent problems my room brought about.
At the moment, I'm quite satisfied with placement now, and all that's left to fix are my bass issues and echos (damn corners!). Who know's though...my ocd causes me to have a perfectionist complex...and although it produces amazing results in comparison to some other systems out there, I'm just never satisfied. I know its all about placement in coherence with the rooms acoustical properties, and has nothing to do with with my actual equipment, but its that exact reason that forces me to try to produce better results. If anyone is going to spend this kind of money on a system, they better damn well attempt to get the best out of it, as long as their options permit. Anyone who refutes that claim is a fool.
Just a little insight from my on-going 2 year Hi-Fi experience. Everyday I learn something new, and that's the beauty of it.
I hope I didn't bore anyone with that.
I still need some more insight on those acoustical traps though, not sure if I should go with them, and if so 4inch thick or 6inch (X4vsX6). As I stated above my bass issue 40hz-52hz.
As always, thanks for pushing me in the right direction. I've learned so much from this community and shall always cherish the people that have helped expand my cognition of audio as a whole.
