Your One Bullet Point Solution; Electrical Upgrade
oldhvymecThe comment about not being able to get the 100 amps, that just isn’t the case.. The amperage is almost unlimited ... Sorry, but you don’t know what you are talking about. To be clear, I didn’t say he couldn’t receive 100A of current, onl...

ozzy62 Rip all your cds to a NAS drive and use a streamer into a DAC. Not only is this more convenient ...Ripping a boatload of CDs to a NAS drive sure doesn't sound convenient to me.

douglas_schroeder I can do either 100A or 200A. The pedestal and panel has not been purchased yet.Go for 200A. You'll never regret it.If I do 200A, then my 100A subpanel is toast? Nope - it will be fine. You can leave it as-is

douglas_schroeder Doing service upgrade to 100A. That doesn’t sound like much of an upgrade. In any event, it isn’t clear exactly what you’re undertaking. Do you mean you are upgrading an existing main breaker panel to a 100A rating? If so, your ... 
Tidal/OPPO streaming issue
This is just a wild guess from a non-Tidal user: Does Tidal allow use of more than one device at a time? If not, are you sure your computer was logged out before you tried to log in on the iPad? 
Is VTA and SRA the same thing?
millercarbonVTA generally refers to the angle of the tone arm, although technically it is the angle of the cantilever.Nope, you’re wrong again. Let @melm explain:... VTA is the angle made by the stylus tip to the cantilever attachment to the cartr... 
Could AudiogoN seperate Dealer listings?

Is VTA and SRA the same thing?
petg601mm change in VTA will affect 0,19 degrees of SRA, so no it will be less than 1 degree.VTA is measured in degrees, not millimeters. VTA is an angle, not a distance. But even if you intend to say that a 1mm change in pickup arm height result... 
How to properly set up a turntable
mglik Will check YouTube, but I am going to first try to set the HTA. Think that is getting the arm (Ortophon 309) parallel.Changing the height of the pickup arm adjusts VTA, not HTA.  
Is VTA and SRA the same thing?
dangcaonguyen If I adjusted the VTA by 1 degree, will the SRA change with the same 1 degree?It will be very, very, very close, but it’s not exactly a 1:1 relationship. That’s because VTA is the angle between the surface of the record and that of ... 
McIntosh, your experience?
twoleftearsIf you have an audio company where all the original principals retired, others have come and gone, and which has changed hands and become part of some multinational conglomerate...is it the same company?No, it isn’t the same company. ... 
Is VTA and SRA the same thing?
mijostyn... raise or lower the tonearm until the arm is perfectly parallel to the record. This will give you both the correct VTA and SRA.That approach should get you close to proper VTA. Whether the result is "correct" hinges on your toleranc... 
Is VTA and SRA the same thing?
melmStrictly speaking the VTA is the angle made by the stylus tip to the cantilever attachment to the cartridge. It is a bit different than the angle of the cantilever itself.That's a fine distinction but it's absolutely correct. Conical styl... 
Is VTA and SRA the same thing?
dangcaonguyen So the VTA cannot be adjusted by the end user?The VTA can be adjusted by raising or lowering the pickup arm, but the optimum VTA is determined by the phono cartridge manufacturer and - to an extent - the VTA of the actual cutting sty...
