Worth of current system
  Just picked up a multi speaker w/sub Bose System . Set me back $74K. But it came in a GMC Duramax Denali 😝. I’m not a Bose fan either ! But my modest home system , about $14K . If I add up both cars , my Harley and my system , I still don’t have... 
KT88 tube amp
Will your amp support KT-120’s ? I prefer them over the tubes listed above when I’m seeking bass from less efficient speakers . On the NOS side I have GEC Gold Lion KT-88’s and 3 hole Tung Sol 6550’s  . The NOS Genelax are sweet , but definitely o...

Shocked removed spikes, used blue tack, what other non spike footer
Having tried numerous methods on various speakers, I’ve found mostly the same results mention above . My .02 regarding the “ Blue Pads “ is with my JBL 4412A’s as used on Sound Anchor stands . I found them to be helpful with bass , clarity and ima... 
Take up drums at age 56?
   GO FOR IT ! I watched my brother start at 50. He did however have a head start with 30 years of guitar with lessons and could read music . He now is exclusively drums and takes lessons, as he is OCD . He’s on his fourth kit after 10 years . He ... 
***Is It Me Or Have Todays Modern Tubes Gotten REALLY REALLY Good***
Nice amp , and yes modern tubes are good . However , I dare you to roll in 4 NOS  Telefunken signal tubes and say it isn’t an improvement. But everyone knows it’s subjective . I must be stupid as I have more invested in tubes , than my amp . But i... 
How many audiophiles do you need to change a lightbulb?

Death of Rock 'n' Roll
   The Rock artists die just like the Jazz artists , but the music lives forever . Half of Led Zepplin’s music came from deceased Black Americans , so why even ask this question . Music so undocumented that it is “ Arranged by Ledbetter “ ! BTW , ... 
Zu Druid 6
    Phil , thanks for a rather enlightening article on the new Druids . My system is “ Rife with Problems “ as I have older Zu Omens , but I very much enjoy them . The fellow Agoner I purchased them from has Zu Druid 4/5, Devore, and Voxative . He... 
Is there a difference in sound quality when streaming TIDAL Vs CD player
Larry , great question . But unfortunately you have many variables to contend with . You will benefit the most from trying various combinations on YOUR SYSTEM . At my home,  I have an Oppo 105, a Schiit Yiggy , a Musical Fidelity’s transport . For...

KT88 vs 6550 tubes
   So the “ KT” means kinked tetrode , this was a design change to circumvent the original patent. I have NOS Tung Sol 6550 ( 3 hole ) and SED Winged C 6550’s . I have NOS GEC KT-88’s and KT-77’s (smoked glass ). New production GL KT88’s and KT-77... 
Klipsch!. The worst speaker company, EVER?
   Take a look at the crap he sells on EBay . Odd tubes that “ somebody “ tested, vintage receivers that are not serviced , and other garage sale crap . I like his disclaimer that he “ video records “ the internals so “ parts pirates “ don’t try t...
