Why Do So Many Audiophiles Reject Blind Testing Of Audio Components?
How about because it is hard to do. I am a clinical research scientist as well and have a deep appreciation of biased ascertainment of endpoints. Nevertheless, it is fairly easy for me to hear differences in amps, preamps, dacs and CD transports ... 
Sad to say I need a new amp…
@wb27 so when the wife/spouse says why are u spending big dollars on an amplifier u have a much better excuse than most of us. I tell my wife, I just wanted another amp. At least u can say that your amp died on you!  
Project CD Transport Service
@wharfy I did something to the power supply during set up. Very nice sounding player but I just dont know that it is very robust. I ordered a Linear power supply which I had planned to do anyways for better sonics. It will be about a month before ...

@charles1dad THANKS!  
Tonality of Jay's Transport?
@stuartk I struggle with the ergonomics and sturdiness of the Project transport, at least the RS2T.  I have their slot loading transport in another system and while small I like it better from a functional use standpoint.  You hit on another impor...

@Wharfy thanks for your response.  I think I messed up the power supply so I will first replace the wall wart with the Linear Tube Audio linear power supply.  
Inexpensive speaker cables: any experience?
Not sure what your definition of inexpensive is.  However, I will offer up some suggestions: 1) Zavfino Prima....., 2) Grover Huffman Pharoah cables, and 3) Cullen silver/copper cables.   The good thing about the contemporary audio scene is the u... 
Tonality of Jay's Transport?
@stuartk @Nonoise  I try and describe what my ears hear and my brain prefers with an accurate characterization as to why I prefer a certain audio presentation.  I also prefer to stay away from some of the toxic interchanges that occur in this for... 
Tonality of Jay's Transport?
I have both.  Jay's for sure is built like a tank compared to the Project.  In my reference though they sound different, the choice of which one u like will boil down to personal preference.  In my best system, I like the Jay's a bit better.  It g... 
peachtree gan 400 is very good
At some point I might pick up the Peachtree GAN amplifier.  The LSA Voyager GAN sounds to me like the love child of a high caliber contemporary tube amp and excellent class A solid state amp - minus the balls to the wall low end.  I either hated o... 
Warning for Revel lovers
Rough story.  Now u could of bought my heavenly sounding modded Revel F208s that my Spatial X5s have replaced....  
Has anyone tried the Deulund-Mundorf Ultra Speaker Purifiers?
Got them and love them....  
Recommendation for Digital Coax
My vote is for Cullen Cable...  
Duelund/Mundorf Ultra Loudspeaker Purifiers
I got mine from Audioman for use on my Spatial X5s.   They do everything promised.  This tweak for sure works in my system.    
Cullen Cable
His digital cables are real winners IMO.  I have his speaker cables, interconnects and power cords as well.  Excellent performers.
