Moving cables around killed dynamics for days anyone else experience this?
George Cardas of Cardas Audio has stated many times that simply moving cables will degrade the sound and it will take several days for the sound to recover. It is always educational to hear the difference of an audio system at an audio show on day... 
Pass XP-22 or ARC Ref5se?
I second testpilot's suggestion. They do make the home audition process easy and stress free. I just went through this process comparing Nelson Pass's First Watt F-7 to the First Watt SIT-3. Returning the First Watt F-7 was easy and simple. David ...

Wonderful post. You do not know for sure until you try. But if you are not interested in the possibility, do not try.Concerning leaving amplifiers on, you will have a lower electric bill if you turn them off. Class A amps  use a lot of  electricit... 
Pass Labs and Fuses
rbyington:I did talk directly to Pass Labs and they suggest to keep my amp on 24/7.   Paul McGowan ( CEO of PS Audio) also recommends to keep the PS Audio amps on 24/7. Some reasons to keep always on are less stress on the system (from the initial...

Any experience using a PS Audio Ultimate Outlet
Yes, I have used two of those units with the Balum. I did not try them on a dedicated circuit with digital only, but with a subwoofer directly to one unit and one had a power conditioner plugged into it into which my audio system was plugged into....
