Mitigating the Bubble
When he wrote, "It's the Perfect Path to Audio Performance!" and capitalized the words, he did use the Perfect Path name in an underhanded intent.   With the claim of a "food grade" base, it would have to be a mineral oil used on cutting boards o... 
CD Tweaks: An Update
I believe what you are getting with Armor-All on your CDs is an anti-static treatment via its silicone-based layer.  I use Furutech's Destat III for an audible improvement when used with each disc before playing.  I would skip the oily layer and t...

RIP oregonpapa
Very saddened to hear.....must be two years ago when I first called Frank over our enthusiasm for the PPT line. Over many calls, Frank told of growing up in post-war California and of how beautiful it was then. He often mentioned a school teacher... 
'' Okay let me ask my digital question in another way ''........
Garebear,  go to the "What's Best In Audio" site, where there is an Esoteric owners forum and also a digital forum with clock discussions among guys who spend a lot of money on their systems.  You will find your answers there.  
RGPC 1200 custom vs. Furman Elite 15 pfi

T/C Tubes is a great place to start.   
Just how many outlets do you need for your stereo?
"A 15 amp standard house outlet will supply about 1800 watts. To be conservative, say 1500 watts."  CakyolShould say a 15A circuit will supply 1800W.  As most circuits have a few outlets, other devices plugged in must be added into the burden on t...

DACs and Transports--do they still go together?
Thanks all, have had questions answered on connections to transport--plenty of options, including custom orders from Lampizator.   
DACs and Transports--do they still go together?
Thanks all, MSB is out of my reach, have inquired with Lampizator America.  Who likes a tubed output?  I have ARC REF210 mono blocks with KT 150's.     
DACs and Transports--do they still go together?
@jjss49 , yes, they still go together, or yes, I need a dope slap? 🤪@facten, I see that MSB does offer a disc transport for their DACs in the same way Esoteric does.  How about Lampizator, then--inputs for transport, and what would be a worthy mat...
