I had many phone conversations with Tim prior to purchasing The Gate. We laughed at how many, in fact...Tim was always gracious and excited to talk to me about products and the Hifi hobby. I felt like I was his most important customer, as I’m sure... 
Perfect Path Tecnologies ‘The Gate’
Last evening I had a listening session after about a week of not turning my system on.  I wanted to have fresh ears and listen again after the 30 day mark of The Gate installation.Well, I was once again amazed that more realism had somehow made it...

Day 7 with The Gate:Just as Tim said to expect, the soundstage has expanded further. It now washes over me from the front of the room to the back of the room. Taller and wider too.Beautiful!

Just a quick update on The Gate in my system...Day 4 after installation:  The noise floor has dropped again which now reveals more micro dynamics.  I didn’t think this was possible since I had already treated my system with Total Contact and insta...

barbapapa...Yes, that makes sense. I have the SR Panels and UEF Dots. Those would most likely stay. I have some ECTs on my Amp and CD player which would be easy to try both ways.Actually, who am I kidding?...I’m a long way from being able to buy T...

I wonder about Synergistic Research products such as Atmosphere, UEF Acoustic Panels, UEF Acoustic Dots, HFTs, ETCs, etc.  Better to remove them when using The Gate? 
Another "Help me choose my speakers" thread
I had a similar budget for a secondary system in an 11x13’ room. I bought the Tekton Lore Reference speakers and loved them! They are paired with a Musical Fidelity intergrated and an older Sony ES CD player.In fact, I was so impressed that I then... 
Integrated amp question.....around $1000..could use some help!
Upscale Audio has the Musical Fidelity M2si for $599 (while supplies last). I bought one for my second system and it’s a great piece!
