Found a pair of Mission bookshelf's in the loft today, I had to try them out





They caught me by surprise as they sounded a lot better than I expected, they have really good mids and surprisingly good bass for their size, they're a little on the bright side for my liking though. The soundstage was quite wide too considering they weren't placed that far apart.

They're back in the loft now though as I much prefer the Tannoys.

Don't tell me I need a new TV, I'm fully aware and doing my best to rectify the issue!

Front - 2 x Polk Audio Monitor 70's
Center - 1 x Polk Audo CS2
Rear - 2 x Polk Audio Monitor 40's
Sub - 1 x PSW505

Goes with a Onkyo TX-SR707 at top center and my Samsung HL56A650 56". Also include my HTPC on bottom, Elite on bottom left, PS3 on bottom right (not pictured, friend has it at the moment) Cox HD Cable box on top right and WRT54G-TM (for Xbox and HTPC and to extend my wi-fi in my house) router top left.

Also this room is somewhat in a work-in-progress, still need to nail the baseboards back on. Too busy plaing Mass Effect 1/2 to do hard labor at home.
nice

Anyone have advice for sound treating a room? I just recently moved my speakers back into my bedroom which I cleaned up a lot. The only problem is it is all hardwood floors, flat walls and ceiling with very little stuff on it to absorb sound. It's pretty good positioning I think (with the exception of no place to sit in front of the speakers ), but the room echos a little just with voices or footsteps. I haven't gotten a chance to give it an honest listen, but I have a feeling I need some sound treatment. (btw the empty wall immediately behind the speakers is roughly 10' x 7-8'. The room is at least that deep)

Any suggestions for something cheap? (and advice on where to put it)

I haven't really finished re-organizing the room yet, so not everything is entirely set in place.
