Well, the cabinet build will probably take a couple of days - longer since I've decided to paint it actually. And I've got a couple of weekends coming up that I can't dedicate to this (shocking I know), so I'd guess we're still a month away. Allow time for me to balls things up again a couple of times, and Life to stick its oar in, say, end of March?

Do the diffusers make any obvious difference?

Reliably fallible.

Yikes - given my primary instrument this sort of thing terrifies me. Lovely work on the diffusers but more to the point, be careful Drew! I hope it heals well and fast :wave:

They look lovely, so from an aesthetic viewpoint I'd say yes :lol:

No idea on the diffusers. When I was reading the audio handbook and doing the maths it was borderline with a room of this size. But I've probably got about 24 square feet of diffusion there (counting the rest of the bookcase and the diffuser/absorber bit) so it should be enough to make a difference, if only slightly.
I've not yet done any kind of critical listening in the room as it's still more like a carpenter's workshop than a music studio so we'll wait and see.

But yes, I think they look nice. :)

Oh most tasteful diffusers - like a pair of miniature skyscraper cities.

Bravo that man!

I think they're the only thing I've made that my other half actually likes the look of. :)

Not that much!

Not a lot of progress on the cabinet today but on the positive side the finger is healing up nicely.
