AMP or Preamp
I don’t believe the new ModWright KWH 225i is shipping yet but this might be something decent to hold you over in the meantime or use the rest of your cash to get a proper table.https://www.audiogon.com/listings/lis9fiei-modwright-kwi-200-stereo-i... 
R.I.P. Toshiba SA-2500....now what?
You probably did fine. I was going to throw out the new entry level Marantz 2 channel receiver but after comparing my newer Marantz NR1506 multi channel receiver to a vintage Marantz 4300 I use at my office now, it’s no contest. The old Marantz 43...

@philjolet If you can, spend a little more for a PC built and designed for digital. VH Audio Flavor 1. Maybe you can find a used one.https://www.vhaudio.com/powercables.html#Flavor1Glad to hear you are enjoying your Ares. 
Upgrade McCormack or...
ModWright KWA 100SE - used.No doubt the Gold upgrade will be worth doing if you keep it but agree you’ll be doing good to get what the upgrade will cost if you ever go to sale your amp. Definitely a following for your amp with the upgrade though.D... 
The truth about high end speakers MUST READ
This thread reminds me a lot of a thread in the Cable Forum several months back. Tell the OP’s your amp and speakers and receive the size of speaker cables that are literally used for jump starting cars; the mystery formula that was never revealed... 
Aerial Acoustics 10t opportunity...too little, too late?
If the 10t is like my 7b’s You’ll need a big amp or don’t bother. A min of 200w @ 8 ohm’s or they won’t deliver what they’re capable of; +250 is even better. If you have the amp, then make an offer that you can live with that if you don’t like the... 
Do I have my power cords in the right spot?
Agree with all noted above; you just have to listen. Also good to keep your Cables tidy and keep distance from others, keeping power cords away from your IC’s the best you can. As your PC’s lay on the floor, also good to keep them away from your s... 
How to replace hardwired stock power cord ?
Cost of a Furutech IEC and a Dremmel tool you may not own, I’d just buy a decent used PC, take off the female end and drill out a larger hole and buy a new, larger strain relief from Michael Percy. Page 21 - Cord Strain Relief: Collet Type. That’s... 
Recommendations for Vintage Speakers
JBL L100.  
1973
Speaking of Joe’s Garage; the first time I heard that album was a guy down the hall from me in the college dorm I was living in. Can’t remember the guys name but he had a pair of the original Magnepan SMG’s floating off the ceiling firing directly... 
Power cord recommendation for a dac?
Supra is very good for the money. I have their power cord which I didn’t care for their ends as they feel very cheap so off they went. The Supra PC to my ears a little soft or not as open and revealing as my Wywires and Nordost. I also purchased t... 
Power cord recommendation for a dac?
Wywires Silver Juice II Digital PC. I also use Nordost Vishnu for digital and very open PC which I find has no glare whatsoever. Both great cables but different from each other. Kimber PK14 Gold would be another to read up on. 
Bluesound Node 2i , Azur 851n or ...
I suspect the 851N sounds better than the Bluesound. I have a Vault 2 running it through the DAC in my 851C and it sounds better than the DAC in the Bluesound. It’s night and day. I bought the Vault for ripping and I very much enjoy it. The DAC in...
