Hi Calvinj,Time to sit back and enjoy your music. I'll bet your set up sounds awesome. Take a break from the campain trail ;-) 
Perfect Path Total Contact Inside a Power Conditioner a good thing?
Interesting post. Sounds like an excellent idea. 
Integrated with passive preamp section. Good or bad idea, or both ?

Isoacoustics Gaia II on what type of speaker platform?
Just a thought:I'm wondering if a thick (2"-3") maple block would sound better than any type of stone that has been known to smear sound? I'm guessing one won't know until they try it.

Gryphon Diablo 300 Has Arrived: First Impressions.
@nyev, I was wondering if you by chance have heard any of the Luxman Integrated amps and how they might compare to your Diablo 300? 
I woke up with cold ears
I truly believe when I first wake up in the morning my hearing is more sensitive. I turn on my bedroom receiver to listen to my FM station and the music sounds more amplified. I go into the bathroom for five minutes and then renter the bedroom and... 
Can someone help me decide between an amp and an integrated amp?
@bradkava,If you want to save space and possibly some money buy a good integrated amp with enough power to drive Maggies. With an integrated amp, you don't need to purchase interconnects for a preamp.If you have space and funds then individual com...
