Quick update from Casa DC, room hasn’t changed much, though the system has evolved a little since mid-2017:

speakers: Harbeth C7ES3 30th Anniversary Edition in limited Eucalyptus finish
amp: Pass Labs XA-30.5
preamp: McIntosh C220
CD/SACD: Sony SCD-XA5400ES w/ModWright "Ultimate Truth" mod.
turntable: VPI Scout w/Nagaoka MP-500 cartridge
tuner(s): McIntosh MR74 & MR78 "duking it out" at this time (one will stay and one will go)
computer: Mac Mini with iTunes; no DAC (this is just an experiment in having extra parts)

The wallet needs to cool off, so this is a self-imposed (and partially spouse-imposed, haha) plateau for a while.

Sorry for the crappy pic, this room doesn't photograph well.

Great lookinng room, good use of the space.
We have about the same size rooms, but mine has 10' ceiling.
Room treatment is key to getting things right, good job.
I would love to pop in and listen )

Yeah, this ceiling ain’t anywhere near 10’! Though the slope helps the room “work” well. The treatments are a bit overdone so the room is definitely on the dry side.
