After spending a long time on car audio and reaching a level of satisfaction I decided to shift allegiance to home audio.
The challenge first was to identify a decent listening space.
The only corner granted to me was the not too music friendly dining area.
The right speaker side has a side wall within 6 feet with windows. There is no wall on the immediacy of the left speaker side at it extends into the hall. A curtain is used as a separator for the hall and dining space on the left side.
A fridge and dining table occupy a portion of the right side while the left side is totally bare.
Of course heavy curtains provide relief from the windows.
