Have been listening to Vandersteens for over 30 years starting with 2ci's to 2ce's and now Quatro CT's with numerous front end brands along the way. In my own system and in many dealer demos I've found ARC tend to be very synergistic and bring out... 
Audioquest Niagara 7000 hum/buzz
Hi - for what it's worth... I also purchased an AQ 7000 (used on Audiogon) and had a buzzing issue and ground loop hum with my turntable.  Drove me crazy trying to track the culprit(s) down.  Changed phono pre-amps, experimented with AC power cord... 
Calling all Vandersteen Fans
I've never owned the 1's, but heard the 2ci's at a NYC audio show in 1989 and the music was magical -- it just sounded "right" to me.  So saved up my pennies and purchased a pair.  Still remember moving them to my small apartment via 5 blocks via ...

Single vs Double Bi-wire....should I reconsider?
Good move on getting double run.  I've been listening to Vandersteen as my primary speaker for over 25 years now going from 2ci's to 2ce Sig to original Quatro and now Quatro CT, and obviously quite happy.  Recall I started off with double run AQ ... 
Help me complete my system with a tube preamp (w/phono?)
+1 on the Hovland HP 100.  I still have one and up until 8 years ago had it paired with a DNA-125.  Was a very musical and compatible combo.  (Upgraded the amp to a Hovland Radia which obviously was much more $.)  Hovland preamp has a good interna...
