My Long List of Amplifiers and My Personal Review of Each!

@whitecamaross Coming up next: Center Stage 1.5 version 2 footers (to use under Boulder 1.5 monos and Mephisto)You realize these takes 2+ weeks to settle after installation. Sound can be erratic until fully settled so system can be offline.

@kren0006, If you're referring to me .... I ask if making multiple changes simultaneously,  how do you know which one works?   It's time consuming so was only a SUGGESTION.  The results can help WCSS save some $$ for more toys.

Shootout between Tripoint and SR Ground Block SE would be interesting.  Answers question, do I need to spend big $$ on Tripoint if SR is comparable??WCSS, probably difficult but making one change at a time will help hearing the affects.   Can't te... 
Rockport owners.

HELP advise PLEASE - Focal Sopra 2 Speakers - I want a tube amp but " Min 2.6ohm @ 104Hz "
Checkout Convergent Audio Technology (CAT) or ARC for tubes driving a tough load. VAC has 2 ohm tap ... found one VAC 200IQ had trouble driving Wilson Sabrina so probably need 2 running in Mono.

@kodak805 I do not believe in using cables as a tone control. Like all components they should get you as close to the source material as possible without imposing their own coloration. What brand of cable is not a tone control?

@whitecamaross , Boulder recommends dedicated 240-volt line to maximize 2150 potential.   My guess one reason why disappointed with Boulder 1st go around.@himiguel You're in WC neighborhood, drop by for A and B and possible sale if work as adverti... 
NEW Cerious Technologies Upgrade - Graphene Matrix Cables
@c_avila1 Thanks for the info.  I had 2 Modwright players at the time and ended up getting an Audio Magic and ZenWave umbilical cord.  Both were excellent and huge upgrade over stock.  I HIGHLY recommend any MW owner to replace the stock umbil...

NEW Cerious Technologies Upgrade - Graphene Matrix Cables
First of all I apologize for the lack of communication this year. It has been difficult to maintain any sort of optimism with the never ending assault of fear and lock downs. So this stopped you replying emails? Blaming COVID?My inquiry was nev... 
Luxman M900U any experience ?
 M-900U Input impedance Unbalanced 51 kΩand  Balanced 34 kΩ so Chord should be able no drive it.   My guess you need two M-900U to drive the Tannoy. 
Amp repair cost — is this right?
My bad @jeffreylee  everybody has to charge same rate.
