Roger Alan Modjeski (RAM) 1951 - 2019
@augwest Roger stopped reading emails a couple months ago. I actually monitor the same email inbox and saw your message and read it to him. He was quite pleased and asked me to share it with all his visitors that day. Thanks for such kind words ab...

The San Francisco Audio Society that awarded Roger with their lifetime achievement award recently received a note from Michael Fremer when he heard the news of Roger’s passing:"I knew Roger for many years, at first only through phone calls and ema...

@tomic601 Roger didn't really specify any charitable foundations for donations, but I know he was very fond of KQED, the music department at Santa Barbara City College, and Jelly's Place Animal Rescue and Adoption in San Pablo. For a little more h...

@bdp24 and @ndevamp, I think Roger would be a bit miffed with both of you right now. He designed the "new" RM-10 circuit to be cathode bias, the correct term from his perspective versus self-bias.As far a his equipment, schematics, and other compa...

@tomic601 for his service Roger specifically requested Lyle Lovett and Linda Ronstadt songs be performed. He was also a big fan of Billie Holliday, Willie Neslon, Emmy Lou Harris, and Keith Jarrett. He also listened to classical programming on KQE...

Thank you @bdp24 for providing that information. While we mourn the loss of our founder and friend I will only add at this time Roger did make plans for the future of Music Reference/RAM Tubes. For now, tube sales will continue as normal and can b... 
Need 20 - 25 foot spk cables.
I would stick with the coaxial. Go on eBay and search for OCOS cable. I have used it in the past for long runs. Not expensive either. 
Tube amp forethought
@bdp24 that was a good score on the amp. It looked really clean. FWIW Roger uses the 8 ohm taps with his RM-10 but as he would tell you, try it both ways and use the tap you like best. 
Hornshoppe "the Truth" preamp - any opinions?
I purchased this preamp back in 2010 or 2011. I liked it quite a bit using it with a Transcendent OTL. Alas haven't used it in years. Probably need to pass it on to someone that can use it more than me.  
Which Stands for Magnepan LRS (and other models): Mye, Magnariser, Sound Anchor, etc
@meiatflask, "gunned" refers to the Maggies that are reworked by John from Magnestand:http://www.indiespinzone.com/magnestand.html 
Things that make you go, "Hmmmmm...."
Cary 308T, Revox B226-S, and Studer A727 still fetch pretty good money on the used market. 
Which Stands for Magnepan LRS (and other models): Mye, Magnariser, Sound Anchor, etc
I don't own Maggies but if I did I would would either have them "gunned" or get Magna Risers. Rob recently made me a set of risers for my Acoustat Model 2s. It took a little while for the work to be completed due to it being a custom job he took o... 
Sound Labs Wins!
I was pretty disappointed in that room, and the show in general. Lucky for me I live in the area and didn't have to invest much to attend. 
The best place to listen to music??
@mijostyn, I just noticed the speakers were Line Magnetic as well. For some reason that escaped me on my previous visits. I wish they would have had the Devore speakers playing on one of my visits but they weren’t hooked up yet. Maybe next time.Th... 
The best place to listen to music??
If you are in the Bay Area check out Bar Shiru in Oakland which borrowed the concept, but not the owners attitude. https://www.barshiru.com/Horn speakers, as well as a set of Devore. Mostly Line Magnetic electronics, but some Parasound (they are l...
