I would agree but would like to know what are your sources for these statements?

Yes unfortunately a lot of us have this problem we don't have the perfect room so we work with it as best we can. If I ever have the opportunity to build a custom home one day I will have a room designed, constructed and calibrated by sound engineer and hire a company like Rives Audio and the likes...

Yes B&W wit Classé are a match made in heaven, I also enjoy B&W with Electrocompaniet.
