Is the Bi-wire really that bad?
I used to have Mirage 3 speakers that were bi-wire.Used 2 Bryston amps in vertical and horizontal bi-amping then tried just one bi-wired. Best was when I re-wired to a single 2 post system by joining the wires inside the speaker.(easy to do just s... 
Best position for rear channel.
The null spot is to the side of the listening chairs. I have to be closer to the rear speakers than the front so I can't go with a 360 degree arc, me in the middle equi-distant arrangement.Believe me I have tried every spot short of suspending the...

Dedicated Line
I will try the solid core,but hesitate because it will be bent as it snakes it's way from the panel thru my floor joists as I have a basement listening room. I used 2 runs of Carol 10/3 90c(ul)water resistant p-7k 123033-600V from the panel along ...

Power Cables for Martin Logan Ascents?
Go with Foundation Research, they also filter out bad current nasties, I use them on CLS.Stat can be like antennas . 
Tally up best amplifier ever
Smooth solid state,time passes, everything the same but the price to get the same sound today is ten fold. 
Refurbished Quads
I have a stacked pair-if you liked 2 try 4.
