Hi Mark, Thanks for answering my questions earlier this week and also talking about the DC blocker.  I do have a follow up question.  Have you had any actually return a Puron during the 30 day trial period? Thanks, Scott  
Monitors for 14 x 20 Room
Wharfdale Denton 80th anniversary monitors on good rigid stands.  I have some in my bedroom system and sound great.  I tried them with a Simaudio Moon I-3 and it was a very nice combo.  I got the I-3 while my other preamp and amp were getting serv... 
Temporary Down Sizing - Integrated Amp Recommendations
I have a very nice sounding black SimAudio Moon I-3 integrated in excellent cosmetic condition with factory remote that I am not using.  Great warm yet detailed sounding class A/AB amp.  It has a classic retro look but no UV meters.  PM me if you ... 
12'x16'x8' room OK for good stand mounts?
Don't rule out trying ProAc D2 or D2R on very sturdy stands.  They are very warm and natural sounding, especially with string and reed instruments, and might be a little bit more flexible in the distance from the front wall.

Can recommend some non-fatigue SMALL bookshelf for near-field listening?
WHARFEDALE Denton 80th Anniversary Bookshelf Speakers I have them in my bedroom system.  Very relaxed and warm with good bass.  Music Direct has them marked down.

I've tried many, most of them were some kind of humbuster approach as I have a lot of DC on the line which makes my preamp hum.  All of them I tried killed system dynamics with or without the amp plugged into it.  The only one that removed most of... 
Check in: How quickly are streamers and servers evolving?
I am thinking of getting a Bluesound Node 2i to replace my tuner which is my 6+ (hours) x 7 days music source when I am not listening to vinyl or AV source.  I have a great jazz + NPR (KNKX), classical (KING) and classic rock (KZOK), all of course... 
Preamp recommendation
I really like my audio refinement separates.  The Pre-5 is a great preamp but has a lot of gain. 
Cartridge recommendations under $2500
I love my AT-33PTG/II for $500 from 2juki on eBay.  Many great reviews for both cartridge and seller, many saying best cartridge under $1000.  Is a low MC microline and is an excellent and accurate tracker.  Might be worth a try and then buy more ...
