Room Comments/Treatments: Moved outta Manhattan to a MUCH bigger apartment across the Hudson in NJ. Pretty good sounding and fairly large room with arched opening into dining room. No audiophile treatments, just an area rug on the floor, wool rug hung on wall, and some non-audiophile stuff for diffusion. Think with setup care most rooms can sound good.
