TV stand fabric to absorb reflections?

I’ve got my tv mounted on the wall. I recently lowered it down two inches to put it about 42” from the floor. It looks great and is exactly where I wanted it. GREAT!

However, now there is some reflections from the top of my audio cabinet that wasn’t thought about and I want to figure out something to absorb them.

I was thinking some kind of a mat but cannot pinpoint it right now. It needs to be aesthetically pleasing looking.


Pro : Marantz AV8805
Main & Center Speakers : Phase Technology PC 3.5, & Surrounds
Amplifiers : Emotiva UPA-1 Monoblocks, Marantz MM7055, SVS SB3000 Sub
Furman Elite-20PFi, Harmony Elite Remote
TV & Sources: Sony 75” 900F, Bluesound Node 2, Xbox One & Apple TV4K

Go to any fabric store and get enough black velvet to cover the cabinet. They sell real velvet, that is very expensive, but also cheaper velvet like materials which are probably fine. I used one of the cheap alternatives on the frame surrounding my projection screen and it completely absorbs light. (In fact, if I want to see if the image is spilling over onto the frame, I need to hold a white piece of paper up so there is enough reflection to see it.).

Tons of utubes on materials to use, don't have to spend any just time to DIY it.
