Cardas Caps Worthwhile?
Noise floor dropped. Very dark background Very effective. 
Mcintosh Equalization
If you're refering to the MQ 107 or other MQ reries EQ's, they work well to control the bass irregularities. Problem is that you need a Mcintosh AA2 spectrum analyzer to tune the EQ. Hope it helps. 
Leave well enough alone
Same here, I got a deal on a McIntosh MR71 tuner quite rare) Paid C$250 for it. Looked good except the inside the glass was a little dusty. I had to take it out to clean it. Guess what????!!! The markings were old and some of it came off!! I was p...

Cones/Bearings for CD player
Black Diamond Racing Cones is the way to go. I tried them under everything and works like a charm. It's really CHEAP for the improvement you get. Additional improvements can be obtained by using the cones with the pucks they sell. Although the puc...
