Perry, it was nice to have chatted with you today. I just wanted to let you know that your listening room rocks. My room is my biggest deficiency in my rig and wow, your rig is sitting in not only a proper room but in very easy on the eyes setting. Lights on or lights off, I know I would be relaxed. Way to go man!
One thing about hard work.....when someone acknowledges your sweat and tears, it always makes the end result sweeter...thanks again.

Built myself a QRD diffuser a few weeks ago and finally had the time to install it the other day.
This is made from popcorn style foam insulation and thin set mortar mixed thin and applied with a paint brush. After the mud has dried a quick sanding then painted to match the room. The top and bottom are pre finished shelving units from Home Depot. No nails or screws used(except for the cleats to hang it) it is all glued together with can foam....very strong.
I liked my poly diffuser but had read how the QRD were better, it does work well. It adds depth to
the soundstage....vocals seem to come from the panel itself, and the layering in instruments seem to be more focused....very cool.
Didnt take long to make.....actually built it in my living room, was easy on the wallet ,my cost about $50 but the styro was free from work, and only weighs in at about 40 lbs.

I think that may be a myth PDR
