Buyer is claiming damage that was done by him!
Did you bother to insure them? You should never fold to this sort of claim, especially when not accompanied by photos. Only people who get buyers remorse for some reason try this crap. PayPal will invariably take his side which makes no sense. But... 
Can a CD player being close to a receiver or power amplifier affect its performance?
No. Your tech is obviously wrong. Disc errors? Impossible to be caused by anything but either the disc or the drive mechanism or lens. 
Is it common for tubes to outweigh the cost of the amp or preamp?
Cheap ---- with nice light bulbs won’t be a diamond when dressed up, just better looking. But a quality amp and these exotic tubes you are getting raped on...no, it is not common. It’s frickin stupid! Plus what happens when you toast one? You’ll n... 
are magico better than electrostatic
These questions sound like they are written by morons on Quora. If you can’t afford can it! If you’ve never heard or owned stop with the idiotic premises. ATC is the Abbey Road mastering suite speaker of choice for decades. They are much better kn... 
Cary CAD-120S MkII vs VAC Signature 200 iQ
Having owned a VAC, the wattage will not mean a thing. Solid State wattage requirements mean nothing when compared with tubes and speaker wattage requirements are always stated in terms of solid state. And triode is not required for vocals and jaz... 
Should I expect a discount from dealer for buying and installing complete system
Labor should absolutely be non-negotiable!  You have only yourself to blame for a mess and no warranty support on product if something goes wrong and you have someone else do the installation. Don’t listen to these people who are clueless as to th...

How many brands use own drivers?
The idea that manufacturing one’s own speakers is a question of ignorance of the cost of product development costs and those of purchasing or developing and manufacturing the equipment as the additional cost of QA. This said, companies like Totem ... 
I want to be moved and have the music touch my soul!
Try getting a quality source by at least having ModWright turn your bright, somewhat clinical Oppo into a real quality source component and while you’re at it, Dutch the Rotel for something better too. When you’ve done those things, if you’re not ... 
Why no Class D integrated love? (from manufacturers)
Don't you mean digital amplifiers? Lyngdorf makes the best digital amps and integrateds and you get the enormous benefit of room correction. Stop thinking of digital as Class D.  There is more than one way to do digital amplification and the ones ... 
Differences between cd transports?
There are a number of differences. And no, a DAC cannot eliminate anything coming out of the transport!!! The information extracted by the transport cannot be improved, any assertion otherwise demonstrates a gross lack of understanding of physics ... 
I give up on new vinyl
The zep’s are not “audiophile “. Classic released some 10 years ago or so. They are good too. But there is nothing wrong with the nether Page remasters whatsoever! I have the first 6 Deluxe sets through Physical Graffiti as well as all the CDs and... 
Stereo pre-amps with dual outs for bi-amping and a subwoofer line out
Lyngdorf!  
MoFi So Long So Wrong
LPS HAVE NEVER BEEN RETURNABLE AS A RULE.  If the master is problematic so will be the end product. Find something else to worry about besides a single vinyl platter. Best of luck.
