Yet to see a satisfactory-looking treated (domestic) room in this thread... The word hideous keeps popping into my mind for some reason.
Geeks like gear. Got photos of what you prefer in terms of visual aesthetics?

I recognize some of these rooms (WSDG, Northward, Spearit Sound, Vicoustic, maybe Transparent?), but would it be possible for you to post some of the original links?

The ancient Greeks are known to have used at least two types of room treatments:

1. they placed wine containers (amphorae) in the walls with the ends open, which functioned as Helmholtz resonators.

2. the seats - this article suggests it was accidental but ancient people often knew more than we think

Greek? The image you posted looks like a Roman Theatre.

the article said it was Greek; lots of Roman culture was based on the Greeks...

I dunno as I'm not an archeologist

in terms of visual aesthetics, it is easy to conceal modern digital systems (except for the big speakers we need for full range SQ)

I suspect the use of fancy lookin' amps & etc. is just a visual preference by some

my amp is hidden but my pre-amp and DACs/disc player are out in the open

Printed wide band absorption panels "Decorac" by Nemesis. They print any image you send them plus a stock of their own images.

Examples:

Reminds me of visiting IKEA.

Yep, I think it is Ephesus in Turkey. Mentioned in the Gospels. Also it is claimed that Mary's house is nearby. We visited there two years ago. Beautiful area.
From acoustic point of view the most famous amphitheatre is the one of Epidaurus in Greece, I have been there for a theater play in the summer and the actors can be heard at any point of a full audience without any electrical amplification.
