bmoncrieff - Thanks for your comment. But why would I run a step-down transformer with my turntable. I just plug it into the power conditioner and everything works fine. Let me know if I'm missing something. Thanks

mjcmt -- Thanks! I had the sx1250 recapped last year and it got a clean checkup. I refinished the wood on the outside myself using some furniture rejuvenator I had. The unit is as close to showroom new as it gets now. And it works great with everything I connect to it (my Focal Kantas, my Sonus Faber Concertino bookshelf speakers, and even my old Cerwin Vega D-9s. All sound terrific).  The HT stuff -- which I almost never use anymore -- is an old Definitive Technology surround sound system I used in old home theater setup. I have it there just in case we watch any movies or play and video games. The powered subs on each of those speakers really rumble, but it is a stand-alone setup not connected in any way to the 2-channel system in that room, which dominates my time now. I can't remember the last time I watched a movie in that room. LOL

thosb... Thanks for the kind comment! Regarding acoustic treatments... GIK provided some input to some design ideas I came up with myself. They mostly recommended adding diffuser panels to the bass traps to get good combo of diffusion/absorption in the room. After that, I moved them around the room in different spots and tried things out, but being that most of the treatments are combo panels, they can go pretty much anywhere. I also made a few extra acoustic panels on my own that I can move around the room as needed. I became a big believer in the importance acoustic room treatments after many years struggling with room issues. There's no perfect solution, of course, but every little bit helps. Thanks again!
