JBL lovers
My father had a pair of l220 oracles that could definately rock and sounded rather nice. I'll admit to not having heard any other classic JBLs, but the l220s were a fun pair of speakers. You might enjoy the info here (more direct link to the lansi... 
AC/DC remasters....
Has anyone heard the remastered AC/DC Live double cd? It's one of my favorites of their's, and i'm curious if it's worth buying over again since it's a newer recording to begin with. 
Xindak Cable Question
Brainwater, i see that you use xindak's power cables as well. How do they compare to other power cables you've tried? 
Want to build my own equipment.
You might have a look here and the pass labs forum here to get some good ideas.

Pioneer DV-47ai and jitter
Kana, I too have a dv45a being used as a transport. Can you tell me what mods you've done to it, if you did any personally? BTW, i am pretty happy with it as a transport. It makes a better transport than my cal icon mkII with my dac (monarchy m22c... 
Best Inexpensive DAC
My vote in the used 300-500 price range would be for any of the monarchy m22* dacs. Very nice and big improvement over the internal dacs of my pioneer dv45a using an m22c.

Best material for isolation purposes
I really like superballs under most of my components. They can be picked up at walmart for ~1.29 for 8 + 1 large ball. I use washers under the balls to stop their rolling. It's so cheap, it doesn't hurt to try ;) 
Best overall Speakers for $2,500.00 or less, New?
Eminent Technology LFT-VIIIa planar hybrids fit nicely in that price range. If you have a dealer near-by, i'd highly recommend an audition.

Audioparts' gray MAS cables, $60/m, lean a bit to the dark side, although they are silver. They're avaiable here on audiogon or More balanced than kimber pbj or dh labs bl-1 in my system. 
Best $1k pair of floor standing speakers?
I'm going to have to contradict a few people here, and what is a generally held consensus. My room is comparable in dimensions to Geoh's, except it opens into a dining room at the rear. I have had much better results across the board with my LFT-V... 
Best $1k pair of floor standing speakers?
I'm going to have to vote for eminent technology LFT-VIIIa's. They need a fair amount of power to really get them going, but they're the best speaker i've heard in the ~$1000 speaker category.
