Tweaking Cary SLP-98P F1 Preamp
Not that much. I ended up selling it. I am now using Benchmark LA4, which is great.  
Does remote control degrade the sound of tube preamps?

Niagara 5000 Vs Torus RM20 or PS Audio Power Plant 12
@ralph@atma-sphere.com  Which is the main problem with AC: voltage fluctuation or distortion (e.g. 300Hz harmonic)? One argument against power regenerators is that although it cleans up the AC distortion somewhat, once it goes through an amp or D...

The next room size is 16x20x8. Someone near me tried the Maggie bass panels. He sold them. They just didn't do the job.

I own M545 Sound Labs and with Bass focus, it has plenty of bass. I am not a bass freak and I don't listen to rock. I am thinking about moving to a bigger room. The question is Quad 2912 or bigger Sound Lab?

What is Interference filtering?
