Post removed. I apologize to veterans and to friends and families of veterans. Yes, it must be a sign of the times that what appeared to be an indirect reference to the Jerk was really a self-directed satire on sometimes acting like a jerk sets me... 
A Couple Little Things I'm Wondering About
If cable risers are snake oil, then why address vibration in you components at all?  Just what is susceptible to the floor-borne vibrations your system is generating?

Analog or Digital and why?
Since Mike Lavigne has dedicated so much in developing tape, vinyl and digital in his system, his preference for analog over digital carries authority. One question for Mike, though--in putting in your MSB Select, clock and streamer, did you previ... 
High Performance Audio - The End?
He's also into increasing his Youtube subscriber base, and the majority of his listeners are probably in the $5k-$20K range, so his topics may be tailored to gather the most listeners on the bell curve.  He wants you to relate to his site--I like ...
