Yeah, she is borderline psycho with Christmas.
The room has high ceilings, side walls with cabinets, and tile floor.
Lots of reflective hard surfaces.
The cloth cabinet door inserts help some, but it remains fairly bright.
Hoping the new front mains will sing in this type of situation.
In my experience and in my preference, i don't like bright rooms. Since we bought a new flat screen tv for the living room and it reflect light like there was no tomorrow, we are now working on getting heavy, light dampening drapes to replace the blinds. This should help somewhat.
To date, NO speaker that has adorned that room sounded good whatsoever.
