Any thoughts on Vinnie Rossi LIO being discontinued
 Unfortunately, I would think quite the opposite. I wouldn’t touch a discontinued custom product like this without a significant discount from retail.  
Standmount speakers. I have $5000.
I've owned several standout standmounts over the past decade.1. Focal 1007BE + HSU sub. This setup was driven by a McIntosh MA7000 integrated amp. Very musical combo.2. KEF LS50's. Obviously too small for your room.3. KEF Reference 1's (no sub) dr... 
Considering Gryphon Diablo 300 "OR" Simaudio 700iv2 ???
OP...... So what did you end up going with? 700v2 or 300?

Darn autocorrect.....Worked like a charm.

Yes, amazingly good now. I brought old line conditioner from my currently dismantled home theater setup and it wired like a charm. It's an old Monster Power rack style product from about 15 years ago.I really like this new Hegel H590. Great 1 box ... 
Recommendation for detailed/analytical bookshelf speaker?
I enjoyed the KEF LS50's but wanted a larger/fuller sound. I upgraded to the KEF Reference 1's. Spectacular speaker. Detailed. Great imaging. Dynamic. Sounds amazing with my Hegel H590. 
My Long List of Amplifiers and My Personal Review of Each!
WC, thanks for the great info. Are you plugging everything into the wall or a power conditioner? I recall a PS20 being in the mix. If you're using the PS20, what cord from the wall to PS20?

I hear ya RIAA. I'm no saint with respect to expressing my opinions about an audiogon member. In the past, I've felt disdain for Mr. Viber6's additions to this thread...and I've taken plenty of jabs at him. On a side note - Hey Viber6, I appreciat...

Power Amp transformer hum - intermittent and increases and decreases in a few seconds
I'm having a similar problem John, so frustrating. See my post (link below). The Emotiva didn't help my amp. Back to the drawing boards. Think I'll see if i can try out a line conditioner at a local dealer. I don't want to drop a few grand on a fa... 
Help - I've Got the Dreaded Transformer Growl....
Back to the drawing board. The Emotiva CMX-2 didn't help at all so it's being returned [email protected] - can you send a link for the Transparent Reference PIMM 2? I'm not seeing anything by that name when I do a web [email protected]_squires - sinc... 
Which bookshelf speakers to choose: Focal Sopra 1 or B&W 805D3 or KEF Ref 1?
What's your room size, near field listening, associated electronics, and type of music? I have the KEF Reference 1's in my office. They sit on either end of an 8' long by 42" deep desk and are driven by a Hegel H590. Incredible combination. I'm ve... 
Rogue RP-7 vs. New RP-9 - What's the Difference?
Audio Research's well received Ref 10 preamplifier utilizes (8) 6H30P's. The RP9 uses four. Rogue msrp $7500 vs ARC msrp $33,000.Looking forward to hearing the RP9! Always a great value product. 
Help - I've Got the Dreaded Transformer Growl....
Thanks for the responses. I went ahead with the cheap option first - purchased the Emotiva CMX-2 AC line filter with DC offset eliminator ($129). Fingers crossed it does the trick. If that doesn't work, I'll either (1)  look at the Furman power co...
