Ultimate power condotioner
@lwall22 that's a good story with a probably unexpected great outcome. 18 months ago, I was finally able to move my system from a too large drywalled room into a brick walled smaller room and was instantly amazed at how everything tightened up. Th... 
Tubes or stick with S/S
I use a few different amps with my Klipschorns, from a 2.5 watt Miniwatt through to a 20 watt Weston Acoustics Troubadour. You won't need more than anything between those numbers with your Cornwalls.
