Not sure if this belongs in the "Technical" forum, but I'm considering room treatments beyond beverage-based enhancements. Cheesy Anyone have opinions, thoughts on the book "Get Better Sound" by Jim Smith? http://www.getbettersound.com/

Other resources recommended? I've been lurking on A/C Acoustics circle and reading articles on manufacturer sites like GIK and RealTraps.

P.S. Apparently, RealTraps have nothing to do with catching possums.

They can be acoustic treatments as well.  Curtain would offer some absorption in upper end frequency depending on thickness of material and wall decor would offer some diffusion depending on its dimensions.

Carpet is your friend. Hang it on the wall behind your armchair instead of stepping on it. Can work wonders.
