    many options

    There are lots of ways to make a room less acoustically "live." Some companies sell specific products - do a Google search for "acoustic panels" and you'll get a lot to chose from.

    However, not everyone is willing to sacrifice decor, especially if your situation involves a spouse or significant other who isn't quite as dedicated to sound as you. You can explore soft wall hangings - tapestries would be a good example and range from medieval hunt scenes to something more modern. Additional fabric furniture is another option. Asian style room screens are yet another option to break up a room and range in style from very oriental to something more neutral.

    You can also experiment with speaker placement and try bringing them further from your wall and into the room so they are closer to your listening area.

    Is your room carpeted? If not, get a huge rug, and place curtains over your 'dows. Hanging paintings helps alot too, but I would make sure you you art do not have glass fronts........or before you do anything, clap as loud as you can in your room, and see if you can hear severe echo-like sound. If your room is not a problem, then just whipout your credit card and max it out
