i am moving to new dedicated listening room that will be strictly two-channel. i have done quite a bit of reading on room acoustics etc but one problem i have and the reason I am writing is that the size of the room at 4.20*4.70m (or 13.80 x 15.40’) is square-ish, a less than ideal shape acoustics-wise. Otherwise, I have no constraints on placement and can apply all sorts of treatments. Now,
Should I place the speakers (yg anat monitors) on the short or long end of the room?
If I were to cover one of the short walls completely with a, say 40 cm deep bookshelf full of books and cds, does the room now act as a 3.80x4.70m room? If that is the case, the sonics should improve vastly, at least in theory.
I am open to all suggestions and ideas.
