How to connect susb to my system
Something like this can address the impedance issue -    
How to connect susb to my system
I missed the part about you having 2 subs.  Same answer, just use the Main 2 outputs, connect one to Main R, the other to Main L.  This is your answer.  I have 4 complete systems, all have subwoofers.  One system has an ARC LS 26, similar outputs... 
Ultrasonic cleaning
I use Klaudio's ultrasonic machine and distilled water and that suffices for the vast bulk of my LPs. Same here.  I still have my VPI 16.5 that gets used for really dusty/dirty used records.

Main out 2, preferably the XLR.  Right or left, doesn't matter.  
Still looking for a new Moving Coil Cartridge
There have been a lot of different cartridge recommendations but no one is telling me they will make my rock records sing.  Does anyone have first hand experience in the cartridges recommended with rock music?   What does "make my rock records ... 
Still looking for a new Moving Coil Cartridge
I have a Zu Denon DL103 that came with a turntable I bought.  It sounded awful and I was going to throw it away, but decided to send it to Andy Kim to see if he could bring it back to life.  Boy, did he ever!  I have a Hana SL and it's a very nic... 
How easily can you distinguish between different DACs?
I've been through a number of DACs. Different chips, SS, R2R, tube buffers, etc. They all have their own sound. The bits might all be the "same", but how they get converted to digital is different and sounds different.  You may not be able to tel... 
Experience with Modwright products?
A disaster. Guy is a charlatan. Read my explanation of a simple transaction with him. He’s an abusive liar. Case Link. Let me get this straight... you buy a player without ever listening it and have it sent directly to a company whose busines... 
Herron Audio...Still in business
Keith told me that one of his design goals is to build gear that will not come back for repairs. That's why all his amps are SS.  
Herron Audio...Still in business
Keith may be retired now. Last I looked, his website is gone. I have Herron M2 monoblock amps, Herron vtsp-360 preamp, and the VTPH-2A phono stage. All his gear is clean, detailed, and neutral sounding. If you come across any of his gear, it’s a g...

Experience with Modwright products?
Dan is a prince of a guy and makes great stuff. I had a LS100 for a long time and was very happy with it.  
Moving Up from a Jolida JD9
+1 For a Manley Chinook. A lot more quiet and dynamic than the Jolida, much better build quality.   
Vacuum tube amplified headphones...
What?!? Why not just get a tube headphone amp? Or get one of those rinky-dink "tube buffers" if you think having a tube in the signal path will do something magical.  
Why do speakers improve with more powerful amps?
My 150 watt Herron M2 monoblocks sound better than 300 watt Ampzilla 2000 2nd edition monoblocks or PS Audio 350 watt M700 monoblocks with medium efficiency speakers.  My 25 watt Quicksilver Horn monoblocks however sound better than the Herron am...
