Need speaker cable
Finley Audio https://finleyaudio.com/?product=stratus-speaker-cable One of the owners only uses Odyssey amps.  Knowing him, he would likely wind the cables for you and check them on his own amps. 
I am restoring a Stromberg AU-42 - 6L6G question
Can't you leave the caps but have all of the single once mounted underneath the chassis?  It can look neat and professional if someone ever opens it up and from the top it will all look mint. 
Dedicated 20 amp circuit - Electrician laughed!
I agree with the extra ground.  He obviously doesn't own a refrigerator or air conditioner...get another electrician.  Generally I can't hear the difference but with a dedicated grounded circuit I don't have any ground loop, hum or whine issues.Ge... 
12 years or 18 years?
For mental health reasons I gave up Bose 20 years ago...Single malts on the other hand are great.  Got some fun ones here:  Brenne, Sheep Dip, Nikka, Balcones and every Glenmorangie I can find just to start the list.

Andy did a great job on my Clearaudio Panzerholz.  Replacement, even with the Clearaudio trade in, was way more expensive than a new cantilever and tip.Yes, he was very optimistic that his job would/could sound better than the original.  I had 4 c... 
Cartridge Damaged, need advise on getting new
Email Andy Kim at Needle Clinic.  He did a fabulous job on my Clearaudio (bent canteliver).  It sounds amazing and his turnaround is only about 3 days. 
Can anyone give details on some multi-channel thoughts/purpose?
I've got 5.1 for SACD but don't use it much.  SACD and DVD-A do sound pretty good.  Vinyl usually wins unless I'm feeling lazy and just want to immerse myself.For theater, it never seems like enough.  Who has a room large enough for 7.4.2 or even ...

Power Amplifiers
My main office amp is an early 1960s Masterwork tube amp (designed by Pilot).  Nothing can touch it's 10 watts of amazing sound. 
Just curious — Crown xls 5202 amplifier
I've owned clubs, Crown, QSC, Crest and others have huge power ratings.  They really crank but with limited bandwidth and 1% distortion levels.Put one in a home system against a 400 watt McIntosh or similar and let your ears do the rest...
