Roger Waters and Graham Nash on The Band.
This sounds familiar- also covered in Robbie Robertson’s book “Testimony”, which is a great read. Big Pink affected everyone - Clapton wanted to leave Cream.  Testimony also was put in a pretty good film - “Once Were Brothers”. It’s an excellent o... 
Bypassing / Jumping Pots? Ex: Rotel RB-1050 or Parasound HCA-1000a
I had a pair of Parasound 1000a’s. Wouldn’t mess with bypassing the pots. Great amp as is.  
What speakers have you mistakenly let go and then later repurchased?
@jasonbourne52 - are those Infinity Monitor Ia’s or IIa’s?  I still have my Monitor  IIa’s that I bought in 1976, but hadn’t heard of Monitor Ia.   I bought a pair of Totem Sttafs after selling a previous pair (upgraded to Mani Ii).  
Nice Entry Level Streamer for $79 - Wiim Mini Streamer
I bought 3 of these to feed my non-dedicated listening systems (shop, office, living room). They’re great, and connect as Roon endpoints automatically.  
Antivirus protection for dedicated music server like SGC Sonictransporter?
Thanks to both of you. I sent an email to Andrew, but in the meantime I’ve resolved the concern in my own mind, and went ahead and ordered the Sonictransporter.   the issue is closed . . .

What tube amp are you using with Von Schweikert VR series speakers
I bi-amped my VR4 genIIIs using a TAD 60 on the top, B&K M200’s on the bass. This sounded quite nice. I ran the TAD in triode mode (30watts). Running the TAD full range left me with some flabby bass evening ultralinear mode (50 watts).

Bert Jansch - “Rosemary Lane”.  Actually, anything by him. Bert Jansch/John Renborn and The Pentangle - “Sweet Child”

Albums you do not get...a plea for help and understanding
I loved Fleetwood Mack before Nicks and Buckingham, can’t stand them now. I loved the first Journey album ( with Greg Rollie), hated them since.   most of the pop rock played on fm radio from the late 70s and on I won’t listen to.

Need some Cart recommendations, $300 - $700 (New/Used) range…warm, full, yet great def.
Both the glider and super gold are more detailed, musical, and delicate. The denon is very good, but not the same level.

I have and listen regularly to a Grado Sonata, Benz Micro Glider, London Decca Super Gold, and a Denon 103r. The Denon is my least favorite. The Glider and Super gold are stellar- you may want to look into them too.
