To Equi-Core or Not to Equi-Core? That is the question!
@lak . Thanks for the info. I previously read some threads about Perfect Path TC and the Omega E mat . The question I came upon is if those are the same or similar to the Bybee Qse which are less expensive. Whatever the case, I suspect I still n...

@erik_squires  Thanks for the links. I've been interested in making 2 zones but I figured I'd need to run another dedicated circuit. I'll check out the links. Hey, I may save some $$$ [email protected]  Thanks for sharing your experience with the EC 1800.

Fwiw I have wondered about putting the Furman on it's side in back of my rack. Any thoughts? 
To Equi-Core or Not to Equi-Core? That is the question!
@erik_squires  Yes I d go for the reference series. However I don't have rack space for it. I'm stuck with a power strip type in back of the rack or the EC 1800 which will fit in the available space 
Can anyone hear the difference when you add REL subwoofers when playing two channel
I had a Rel Storm 3 in my system for many years. I now have 2 Sumiko S-10 (Rel S5 clone). Fantastic subs and add much more than just bass as mmeeks & others have said. Earlier Rels had even  lower power amps. The Storm 3 only had 150 watts. It... 
My system sounds better than ever.......Yet, I STILL bought another preamp!!
@noble100  There;'s no question as to what I like. The question is where to find it at a cost I can afford. 
lack of bass
@suhila. You say" i must say that the tracks were taken from the web so i dont know how good they are."Maybe you are listening to Mp3 tracks which are 128 , 192 kbps. ? That what it sounds like to me. Mp3's cut at that rate often sound anemic in ...

@millercarbon Indeed all those things come into play. It is a celebration. But I've always been curious about man's actions....especially those which seem inconsistent.To the rest: Its good to be in such good company

@dweller  Thanks for putting the positive spin on it.  You are right in that I wanted to know what more tubes will do. And when my wife asks why, I'll inform her that I am a scientist (I didn't think of that before) 
Bed BATH AND BEYOND
Best Buy & Walmart also have vinyl now. Both just throw the albums in the rack willy nilly w/o alphabetizing them.  So if you are looking for a particular artist/album, you have to look through all of them. I walked out.  
Should I upgrade my system while losing my hearing?
@2psyop I plan on getting the hearing taken care of soon. Like you say, it improves quality of life. If music sounds better, then that's a plus.  
Should I upgrade my system while losing my hearing?
@goldilocks The music sounds fine to me. I know about the hearing loss only from TV conversations which I cannot understand. 
Should I upgrade my system while losing my hearing?
FWIW the hearing loss is a relatively new thing.I had a hearing test 10-12 yrs ago and was in the normal range.  I only recently noticed that I can't hear the conversation on TV as well as I used to do. And yes, I will take care of it.. .....thoug... 
Carver Crimson 275 tube amp
I'll be Interested in the findings between the 2 amps. 
Carver 275 Crimson tube amp --- any feedback appreciated
@ozzy . Back in the 80's I went to audition the Carver Amazing loudspeakers which were heavily promoted. The salon had a carver system w/ a  preamp with holographic imaging. Long story short...it was awful. My son and I were both shocked that a hi...
