Hey skids, ask these geniuses what their advice is based on. I’ve installed panels, sub panels, wired my house, wired my listening room three times, first with a conventional circuit, then direct 4 ga, then had that cryo’d, then converted it to 220V with a step down transformer, then treated the whole length from panel to conditioner, which I’ve modified. So if you ask me something and get an answer from me I actually know exactly what I’m talking about- including how valuable it is in terms of cost vs sound quality.
Reason I say this is the first advice is completely erroneous, and the second while technically not bad isn’t really any help either. Its just there’s a long history of providing incredibly detailed informative advice that gets swamped out and ignored in the crapstorm of irrelevance like what you already started. So you want help, ask me. Otherwise, I am outta here.
