What stereo equipment do respected musicians listen to?
@bigkidz - Interesting.. Which model? I used to have their old FM 611, 25yo. changed some dried caps and all—no problem. But their integral modules (casted) if needing replacement must be send back to factory (/supply parts). Some guy (audio buddy...

The Best Preamp is no Preamp?
  Since Enlighten Audio Design (EAD), Theta days in ‘90s.. fast forward to dCS Verdi/Elgar/Purcell/clock to more recent days’ Accuphase 2 boxes, and friend’s Vivaldi stack, MSB Select (complete) double power bases, pre module etc, Esoteric Grandi...

No preamp is better than Bad preamps.  
Power regeneration - good idea? PS audio?
Oh I am also still using my 17yo PSA PPP (out of regular ac line) in bed room to plug my big Sony Oled plus Marshall blutooth speaker into—even my 10yo nephew could appreciate the picture and sound quality improvements. My old P10 fared even bette... 
Power regeneration - good idea? PS audio?
“So at the end of it all what is the point of this PS audio regenerator?”   If like me where night/day AC voltage irregularity/variance coming in is significant enough (>5%?), it matters a lot (soundwise), more their stabilizing capability I ... 
Power regeneration - good idea? PS audio?
My amp a 260W~8 Ohm, sounds better plugged into a P20 than wall direct (dedicated line). Best to try what work best for you.  
My Long List of Amplifiers and My Personal Review of Each!
500lbs worth of FM Acoustics Amps would’ve easily costed a pair of WAMM lol..  
My Long List of Amplifiers and My Personal Review of Each!
Was my 2nd guess actually but retracted since Stern+Heisenberg doesn’t quite tip the scale right ie.Less than 500lbs combined. Pilium and Audionet are worthy contenders imo, considering their price/performance vs competitors. 
My Long List of Amplifiers and My Personal Review of Each!
Pilium Hercules+Alexander. 
Anyone using Luxman m900u with Audio Research Ref6
“Sometimes synergy a little off”—as in shouty and confused imaging at times/when pushed?If so, and if you currently have everything plugged into P10 (including amp), you might want to try separating amp elsewhere first. Ime, P10 is insufficient to... 
Can flexible power cables sound good?
Running a couple/various PS regenerators for past two decades..Have PS AC12 cord–balanced warmish sound with enough detail/resolution that’s good value for the money, yup they’re rather stiff.Shunyata HC/XC range are better—cleaner, more refined, ... 
PS Audio Stellar P3 Vs Audioquest Niagara 3000
@uwikkkz Hi, yes contact/consult Mr.O..Known him for 25yrs, bought some of my earlier stuffs off him. SF Strads, Soulution, couple of Magicos amongst others, and some nice cablings too (Kubala, Synergistic etc). Although he no longer today carries... 
PS Audio Stellar P3 Vs Audioquest Niagara 3000
Inserting a good preamp will most certainly help in dynamic and musical involvement (though no experience with said Mac C22).PSA regenerators as well^, but PPP model and above. Even so, lumping front ends together with amp/s is not advisable when ...
