I think brewhouse view is important too. I can taste the mountain in my beer.
I believe that the aeration stone is placed AFTER the chiller as it is going into the fermenter so there would be very little back-pressure at that point. Put a little pressure on the O2 line before you start and you will prevent backflow.
When I got mine I set it to .030" and I haven't changed it since. Overall efficiency runs 68-88% depending on gravity, but conversion efficiency is always >95% (assuming I get the pH right).
