When were the best tube amps made?
@atmasphere,   not sure whether Zero Autoformers are really zero cost. I used them on a Graaf GM20 about 15 years ago and while bass was significantly tightened, the overall SQ lost pizzazz. It felt a bit like a Ferrari on Qualudes…

Anyone tried fiber into EtherRegen SFP?
YI use an Antelope Audiophile 10m Rubidium clock, having had the one you mentioned before to try it out. Preferred for the Etherregen is square wave but inly if it not done by cheap conversion in the clock’s output. The advantage is noticeable wit... 
Anyone tried fiber into EtherRegen SFP?
@lollipopguild  two further suggestions, if I may: use the Etherregen’s grounding post to run a separate ground wire to a good ground. And use a 10m clock on the Etherregen, even if it is only a cheap one. Both have major additional benefits

Why don't higher end amplifiers come with a separate power chassis?
@clearthinker much better now. Did the thought occur that manufacturers may include a piece of wire fully well knowing that buyers will chose their own PCs? I very much doubt that any of them would label the generic as recommended. They certainl... 
Why don't higher end amplifiers come with a separate power chassis?
@clearthinker Yawn, and by the way: what‘s this got to do with the topic of this thread? At least get into the relationship between power cable and umbilical, if you must.

Scheu Premier with Mørch tonearm, Cartridgeman Musicmaker cartridge and Zyx Artisan phonostage. Off the beaten track but all the better for it. Alternatively SCHEU TONEARMS AND mC Scheu cartridges are nice as well. Aqvox 2ci phono stage is a good ... 
Cables from amp to preamp or longer speaker cables…
If you can use paralell cables, put the amp near the speakers, otherwise use longer speaker cables (up to 20 ft)
