Clean power and it's affect on sound quality
Why not add some LSD to that coffee also? The OP will be able to see the sound as well as hear it! No need for a pricey TV or premature depletion of those solar batteries... @ellajeanelle  , now you're talking!  Count me in--I'm on board!  
Flexible Power Cords
@jmalen123  , I just took a look on Audio Envy's site and I was wondering which power cables you have.  Also, Audio Envy does not say anything about being shielded, so I assume that they are not?  
Records and CDs
I have fond memories from back in the late '70s and early '80s of a bunch of us getting together at someone's apartment or trailer and spinning LPs all day and all night and using the the album covers that folded open like a book to clean the seed... 
I Don't Understand What Determines When A Thread Gets The Axe
@allenf1963 , at the risk of further antagonizing @dill , I will only say that after reading what you wrote about the development of the Plott Hound, I am surprised that "the brown dog" (Boxer/Plott mix) only weighs in at 35 lb.s! Getting back to... 
6N8S 6SN7 6Н8С tubes?
. . . @ellajeanelle  , I just did a bit more surfing on ebay and there are actually similar listings . . .; they are quite affordable--I assume that means that they are not highly sought after and probably not all that great?  
6N8S 6SN7 6Н8С tubes?
Oops!  I cannot edit my PO where I typed 6SN& meaning to type 6SN7 . . . I am a horrible typist. Thanks, @ellajeanelle  , I will try to look that up to see how those two compare with the 6SN7.    
Flexible Power Cords
@g9taylor  , I just did a quick search on the Kimber Base PK10; is it a shielded cord? @carlsbad2  , wouldn't shielded be advised for digital sources?  
Question about adjusting the balance
@zazouswing  , thank you for your input and I believe that you are correct.  I also think that I was woried about nothing . . . I have a solid center image and I guess that is all I should have really been concerned about.  I don't know what led m... 
I Don't Understand What Determines When A Thread Gets The Axe
@allenf1963 , good to hear from a fellow animal lover and audiophile (although I am not sure the audiophile handle applies to me). Not familiar with the Plott Hound breed, but the two puppies we adopter were both boxer mixes (35% according to the... 
I Don't Understand What Determines When A Thread Gets The Axe
@allenf1963  My 7 month old rescues (an Orange brother and his Tortie sister) are teaching my wife and I a thing or thirty about kittens! Mainly, they have one brain cell between them and they take turns using it! If you think that's bad . . ... 
Question about adjusting the balance
@carlsbad2 , sincere thanks for your input. I did not play with different input tubes, but I do actually have a HT center channl version of the 805 Matrix that I have not used for years, so, even though I figured it was a fool’s errand, and theref... 
Question about adjusting the balance
So what you data is telling you, as you described it above.  Is that you have a probem with either one of your highs or one of your mids.  My first thought was that it would likely be a driver or a crossover component in your speakers.   Ahhhh,... 
Question about adjusting the balance
I never thought of thinking deeper on it. Not a problem if you want to. Thanks, @ghdprentice  , I think I am probably getting ready not to worry about it anymore.  I was just wondering if there was an easy explanation to why I could use the SLM... 
Question about adjusting the balance
@carlsbad2 So the question is, how is your tube bias set? I prefer manual tube bias adjustment so I can match any 2 tubes. Theoretically, an auto bias circuit should do this also, but if you’re getting different voltages, then maybe it isn’t. ... 
Records and CDs
And all this time I thought I was missing out because I don't have a TT and a LP collection (anymore).
