I've been doing that recently since we're looking at new apartments. Grace is pissed that I keep shooting down potential apartments due to acoustics, but I'm not having this rig sound bad, damn it. :D
Plan on getting some panels for the new place, too. Doing it proper.
Panels aren't too hard to make yourself. I'll try to find the "recipe" I've used in the past and send it your way. MUCH cheaper that way.
