My new B Stock speakers
The Revels are fantastic speakers. I hope you are falling in love with the sound. I scored a pair of Celestions a few weeks ago (for close to nothing), and I can't get enough of them. What type of music impressed you most with the Revels?  
why expensive streamers
I don't have a streamer or a DAC and I am absolutely clueless but based on what it does, it sounds like the only reason why cheap streamers sound worse than expensive ones is because they are poorly designed and "create" issues. There should be no... 
For city apartment dweller audiophiles. Have you ever had neighbors banging on your walls?
when I was in my early 20s I would turn on my stereo, highest volume, 2 seconds at 1AM. Then again in 20-35 minutes. Until 4AM, when I finished my homework for school. The neighbor and I were not on the best terms  
Speakers for SET 8 Watt 300B system?
I am a bit suspicious of "black hole" audio companies, (Charney) that are unreachable, information only goes in one direction. I emailed them so many times with zero response.  
Listening Room
@immatthewj You must not be living in the same world I am, @audioguy85 . I fear this will spiral into a political vortex quickly. I have never see spending at this level, stores are full. restaurants are full, flights are full, and every 2 w... 
Tracks that bring out the best of YOUR digital system
@llg98ljk sorry for not being clear. I agreed with you. I meant audiomen's post was strange about how much you MUST spend

your amp will drive a lot of speakers. Maybe all of them. The question is synergy, and what your ear enjoys the most. I wouldn't start with the most expensive pairing, at the top of your budget, how would you know you wouldn't be happy with a spea... 
Restored Dual vs. Restored Technics
what do you get with the auto that you don't get with the semi-auto? I think the biggest weakness of the Dual is how it starts playing, the zigzaggy weirdness which is prone to break. I can't stand it. I personally prefer 100% manual tables.  As ... 
How often, and how, do you clean your stylus?
I buy a new stylus every week. New ones are usually come clean. If only I had known there was a way to clean them?

@edelbby speakers are very personal. I do believe you can get fantastic speakers for 3K easily, especially used. these are the ones I would audition: Dynaudio, Totem, Fyne, Harbeth, Revel, Paradigm. These are great values, $ for $

subwoofers
I bought a (2) splitter for this as well, worked fine.   
Tracks that bring out the best of YOUR digital system
@llg98ljk strange post indeed. What does it have to do with the post? Luckily I am ignorant and clueless enough to enjoy a 3 figure system :)

M Ward and The Be Good Tanyas always sound like they are in the room, and kicking boxes on the floor.

@vthokie83 that's a great story. I do think highly of the Buchardts. However, buying new speakers was my biggest mistake. I spent an enormous amount on my speakers and I could have saved 50% if I had bought used. And I could have spent that on ano...
