If you do the Toronto trip, hit the aquarium...it's located very close to the base of the CN Tower/Skydome, it's pretty amazing. Also nearby is the historic Brewery District for doing some 'sampling' and having lunch. I'd suggest Mill St. Brewery as

I think I can chime in as I live about 45min from Niagara Falls, so I know the area very well. I'd agree with Shawn that Niagara is a beautiful place to visit if you have never seen it. It has some lovely parks and lots of the really cheesy touris

My room is larger than yours @ 16.5'x17'x 8' ceilings. Effectively your amp has 20w more than mine by Arcam's specs. I had never gotten my receiver up above -10 db before it simply just started to sound excessively loud. Once I did go up to -5 db

Blocking, eh? Kind of a distinguished honor to know your affect was real to someone. Better than the usual crickets I guess. I'm riding out the hump until some new blood joins. Kind of hard to learn with anyone when nothing is happening..... R
