That Right Speaker is almost in a corner, the other free-standing.
Not ideal but Tannoys do nicely in corners and not far from walls. I can always put some treatment in that corner. More toe-in may help as well but it's not sounding bad right now.
There should be a lot of "Presence" for you in that room.
Wife is into quilting so we'll probably hang some large quilts on the walls. Not sure how they perform as room treatment but at least the walls won't be bare.
Almost any "quilt" will absorb some HF reflection.
But (assuming that the quilt is stuffed with fibrous insulation, as most quilts are) a quilt cover made from loosely woven material like burlap will allow for significantly more absorption than a cover made from
I highly recommend ATS Acoustics cloth covered absorption panels. They are easy to mount, are not too expensive, and are available in a wide array of shapes and colors.
ATS provides an online calculator for the absorption needs of "typical" rooms. For instance, a typical 10' x 15' x 8' room made from drywall might typically require about ten 2' x 4' x 2" absorption panels to bring room reverb down to an optimal level. (That would be in an mostly empty room devoid of much stuffed furniture or fabrics)
Thanks for the tip on ATS Acoustics. I found their website and bookmarked it.
+1 for ATS absorbing panels. I've used their 2x2x2" or 2x3x2" absorbing panels for years. A simple place to start is to place a panel on the wall behind each speaker. I simply hang them like a large print or painting.(eyelet screws and light cabling) Easy to reposition if need be. In regard to quilting, my friend had a quilt custom made to cover his flat screen when he listens to music.
