I am not trying to downplay the good effects of proper room treatment but I think that a lot of audiophiles do this to try to correct a poor digital front end. If you are not using a D/A converter I would try that before spending extra cash on rebuilding walls. You can buy an adcom gda-600 used for under $350 and start off with a 75ohm video cable as the digital innerconnect. If your cd player does not have a digital output you can also get that used for cheap. If your cd player is throwing away digital information you can NEVER get it back. Also, many cd players blend the lower bass to mono and that in itself will muddy up a room's sound.
