Too many tweaks?

I've been tweaking for a year or so: footers, cable upgrades, power conditioners, black boxes, Bybee, etc. It seems to me that these tend to refine soundstage and imaging, clarity and resolution, but possibly at the expense of warmth, slam, and fullness of tone. Has anyone had a similar experience? Different experience? Has anyone gotten to the point where it was time to start eliminating tweaks?
I think that one can go too far but it all depends on the application and the system. Anything that raises resolution allowing for more info to come across at the expense of nothing else is always welcome.

Sometimes warmth, slam and fullness of tone are sonic aberrations that make you all warm and fuzzy inside but are inaccurate. This is not to say that they are inherently inaccurate but there are limits.

I've found that whatever tweaks I use that get me closer to what I perceive to be more accurate (always with more info, never with less) add to the weight, slam and fullness of tone. If otherwise, I'd forgo the tweak and look elsewhere.

I guess it all boils down to what floats your boat, but I do believe you can have both accuracy and clarity and still enjoy wholesome amounts of warmth and tone. There is a happy medium in there, somewhere.

The last two things I"ve added to my system were Darwin ICs, which opened a minor floodgate of sound I've been missing and a Blue Circle 2x PLC Thingee which cleared up the dust bunnies I didn't know I had and lowered the noise floor quite a bit. Oh, and a new Cullen Cable PC for the Thingee since I now have all my audio plugged into it. Even that made for some improvement.

All the best,

Good to hear your recommendation...I'm about to order one. I already have 2 BC86 MK5's and they work wonders. Good example of tweeks that are transparent while providing major improvement.
Lowrider57, I hear you. When one first looks at it, resplendent in its PVC tube, it looks unassuming and low tech. It's whats inside that counts. A customer of Gilbert asked if he could forgo the metal enclosure and put it in a PVC tube to keep the cost down and viola! The Thingee. I would bet it shaved at least 3X the cost, if not more, by going the PVC route.

All the best,
