Keith Jarrett on the importance of audio sound quality
Thanks for sharing. Great read. Glad to see attempting to reach audio nirvana isn't any simpler for Jarrett than any of us. 
Best room treatment
Bottom line I ended up with different brands, and they all work together just as well as a single brand. And that way you get more and maybe better options. 
Best room treatment
From my own experience, I started out with GIK. Some of their recommendations were spot on, like bass traps in each corner but I opted for the limiter versions (doesn't absorb anything over 500 hz) which I don't regret at all. However their recomm...

Downside to "revealing" system?
Try the Puffin, wide range of adjustments perfect for tweaking the sound of poorly sounding records. It's the only reason I have one as my second phono preamp. 
Why are speakers rarely satisfactory?
I love my current speakers and have zero desire to upgrade. Now, cables, fuses and such are another matter :) 
Update on Audiogon Member Almarg
Being new to reading this blog, I never had the chance to read anything from Al. The outpouring of love towards him tells me how I missed out. Wishing Al, Margaret and their families the strength to handle this crisis with courage.

Woofer pumping possibly due to tube amp when playing vinyl
I use a TTW audio outer ring extreme V2, made in Canada. Extremely efficient and much less expensive than the VPI outer ring. That being said, once again, I don't believe that's your problem since I have never experienced the woofer pumping you de...
