Does Age Matter?
Matter ages, but age doesn't matter. 
A deeper more holographic soundstage.
Everything is dependent on everything else. You have been given some very good information on speaker placement, toe-in, room treatments, etc but the truth is some speakers and some electronics do not do a very good job of recreating depth no matt... 
Anyone ditch the sub after large speaker purchase?
Subs? We don't need no stinkin' subs. 
1 piece of audio gear I really regret selling is..
Meridian 508-24 CD player. It didn't match anything else on my audio rack. Best sound from CD's I've ever heard. 
Advise before I regret
@mofojo I was going from memory (at my age, not a good thing). The article was from an interesting interview with Damon Von Schweikert, son of Albert, in the September 2020 issue of Stereophile magazine. And, of course, I got it wrong."For one of ...

Does Anyone Think CD is Better Than Vinyl/Analog?

I don't know why analog sounds better, it just does. To me digital is like following someone's favorite recipe to the T, but the result comes up short compared to the original-there's just something missing. It's like soul food without the soul. D... 
Sound quality impact - preamp vs power amp?
Sounds like a hypothetical question to induce responses. If the OP was serious, he'd simply consider an integrated amplifier within his remaining budget. Would you put an entry-level cartridge on a high-end turntable? Which is more important when ... 
For the Audiophile with a taste for good design(looks)....a question.
For aesthetic beauty, it's hard to beat any component with exposed tubes. MC's lava light is nice too.  
Is Not Responding To An Offer Just Plain Rude?
If the ad states, "Lowball offers will be politely ignored", and he doesn't respond to your offer, you've been politely ignored. 
Does a taste for high end audio, also carry over into your other interests?
Good music. 
How old are you?
Old enough to know that Paul McCartney used to be in another band and that there’s a new meaning to the word, "streaming". 73, was actually at Woodstock in a VW bus. 
RIP - Aretha Franklin
And I thought MY computer was slow.
