Does an ITU configuration reduce the need for acoustic treatments in room? (1 Viewer)

As the ITU configuration is essentially circular, would the resulting widening of the angles of reflection (as well as the increased distance to the first reflection point) make it easier to get by with less acoustic treatment than a typical flat plane arrangement? Just curious, as I wouldn't want to over dampen a room. I realize the ITU configuration is considered less than ideal for movies, but my system use will be 70/30 music/movie.

I don't think it will make much of a difference, the arrangements are still largely the same, and the room design goals you want will still remain largely the same. You might need to twek slightly the position of absorbers/diffusors that are placed at the reflection points if they are different, but other than that, IMO should make no change.
