Amp — Leave on or turn off
I have the PS Audio S300 stereo amp and the M1200 monoblocks and was wondering the same thing. Just left a message at PS Audio. Curious to hear what they say.

I remove them when listening. I replace them when I'm finished.

Marantz SACD 30n vs ND8006 / CD50n
"Being an older player, I would like a new player with more detail without being too analytical and which does not have a less pronounced bass than mine." I can highly recommend the Luxman D-03X. Sounds fabulous, and the "invert phase" button is...

OP- Very good point about 80 YO ears mastering an album. $150 for Aja? No thanks, I'm perfectly happy with hearing that album from my Luxman D-03X CDP.  
Have you found your "End-Game" speakers yet? I have. And it feels so good!!!
Had twelve pairs of "end game" speakers since 1975. Current pair are B&W 803 D3. Had them for a little over a year. Perfectly happy, so far...

Acoustically Treating a Bomb Shelter
Place absorption panels at first reflection points front wall (the wall you're looking at behind the speakers), side walls, ceiling, and rear wall (the wall behind you). My dedicated room is treated just that way. Sounds wonderful. Yours will too.
