Question about sound stage
Hello, Maybe the tweeter is out in the left speaker. I agree with the cable swap or even an interconnect swap. Maybe your hearing in one ear is going out. Or try toeing in the left speaker more towards you. It could be something with your speaker... 
Rouge Audio RP-7
Hello, I really love the sound of Rogue. The RH-5 is an exceptional value plus you have the option to get the built I phono stage. Also, I asked about the remote. They said for an extra $100 you can order a metal remote for most of their stuff. T... 
Placement of Single Subwoofer Affecting Sound of Main Speakers
Hello, Besides all of the good things to try above I would also check the Phase of the sub. If it’s out of phase it can really mess with the sound if it’s in a bad location. Sometimes there is a switch on the sub itself. If you don’t mind spendin... 
Do I need a dac
Hello,  The T2 is really great and great for the money as long as you use the internal DAC.  The only thing I would suggest is a linear power supply. If you are out of warranty you can use a $400 SBooster. If in warranty you would void the warran... 
Is this stylus worn out?
Hello, Wally mentions groove wear. Does this happen on all records or just one or two. I bought the Hudson ultrasonic stylus cleaner with just distilled water. Works great. I only do this once a month. The rest is done with a dry stylus brush bef...

Is this amount of record/tonearm bobbing "normal"
Hello,  One more thing. Have you put a ball bearing on the top of the platter. Maybe your plinth is level but your platter is not.   
Is this amount of record/tonearm bobbing "normal"
Hello, I would say this is going to be bad for the bearing.  take everything off except for the platter and turn on the table. If that platter is moving up or down or side to side you have an issue. It could be something is not devoted underneath...

FEDEX keeps destroying my New CARY 805RS Monoblocks - What can I do to prevent Nightmare?
Hello,   “These are not the Mono Blocks you are looking for” Maybe not meant to be. I had the same issue with a different amp. Three times!    
Why I'm not adding a sub to my 2-way monitors for music
Hello, I use two of the  JL Audio F110 subs with the JL Audio CR1 crossover. My speakers are rated down to 25hz at -3db.  I am one of those goofballs who use their two channel system as part of the surround system. Both my two channel system and ... 
Best CD player from this list
Hello, I would say the Ayre CX-7 mp. That is one of the most analog sounding CD players out there. Also, They are still servicing these due to still having plenty of CD Trays. They are coming out with a new CD player called the CX-8 very soon tha... 
Recommendations Wanted
Hello, Look up NewRecordDay on YouTube. He has a nice in-depth setup guide for speakers. He and Danny Richie are friends so I’m sure he has learned a lot from him.   
Adcom GFP-555 II
Hello,  Fix it first, then sell or trade it in. There is a kind of cult following with Adcom. Plus, it is an inexpensive way to get some good equipment.
