|I have a book recommendation for you all.|

I think that that is a power rectifier tube.
|line conditioner for amplifiers|
Not being as learned as all the above, I can only offer my uneducated conjecture. Is there is a possibility that the treble is perceived as being attentuated because there is less distortion at the higher frequencies when a power regenerator such ...
|New room, very small .Speaker Placement???|
Everything is pure speculation until you actually move in. Dont't beat yourself up over it. Wait until you get everything moved in, then start the insanity. Good luck.
|Anybody heard of CEC I think of Austilia?|
CEC is a Japanese company. I think the most recent issue of UHF (great Canadian hifi magazine) tested the CEC integrated amp, with positive results. The class A is only the first 25 watts or so, I think. CEC is also the maker of the belt-drive CD ...
|New 11' x 7' listening room....small speaker?|
You need something with a small footprint also, so my suggestion would be something like a Totem Sttaf, which is Totem's mini-tower. Great sound in a small package. Good luck with your search. Regards

|which cowboy junkies cd?|
IMO the best Cowboy Junkies CD is "The Trinity Sessions" for both the music and the recording quality. The session was minimally miked in an old church with very little editing, I think. You can hear things get kicked by accident in the recording,...

|Where does your user name come from?|
Cool,long running thread. My user name sounds like I stuck a number in front of my name to differentiate from others of the same name, but the "50" actually means FIVE-OH, as in Ford Mustang 5.0L. The other crazy hobby that is a blackhole for hard...

|This may be a rhetorical ? but|
All the above members are on the right track. According to Stereophile's John Atkinson, in his measurements of the Shearwater, he stated that it would sound somewhat aggressive in all the the largest rooms. Your 12 x 11 room is probably too small ...
Bryston has the utmost confidence in their products. Therefore they have put their money where their mouth is and put in writing what they have always done; stand behind their products. Their products may not be the sexiest looking, but they are b...
