I never heard of skater blocks either. Are they used to mount panels on?

Scatter blocks are placed at the receive end of the room(back of room ),,They provide soft diffusion ,,some energy is absorbed to remove echo while the untreated areas reflect energy to retain a sense of air and space,,,Makes a big difference ,,They are just 12"x12" squares you can space out on the back wall,,,And you thought you were done :lol:

No Skatter Blocks, I do have some Raised Panels on the staircase in the rear of my space ;)

The room is semi-open on the rear wall, and I've elected not to cover the Staircase wall.

To my ears, the room sounds very good, very quite with no reflections at all. The imaging is more pin-point, yet it still floats, if that makes sense :)

I'm going to make a new rack that will house the T.T., Phono Pre and the SDS, and locate it on a side wall. I'm thinking this will enhance the center imaging even more by lowering the height, and the amount of gear in the main rack.

I'm no expert but I think your speakers are far enough forward of your rack that you may not realize any benefit from lowering the rack. That said both turntables in my 2 systems are located on the sidewall.
