Remasters: which are the good ones?
I agree with Sugarbrie, but there are many that sound very good. These are some pop & folk rock that I have noticed:Almost any that are done as HDCD, even on a regular cdp.The James Gang - the 1st 3Van Morrison Bob Dylan - Greatest Vol I II II... 
AMR CD77 vs Ensemble Dirondo Drive/Dichrono Hi-DAC
It does get a little warm, but certainly not hot. You can touch any part after hours of play without any sort of discomfert. The chamber for the transport seems to get slightly warmer than anything else.The filter options is kinda cool, in that yo... 
AMR CD77 vs Ensemble Dirondo Drive/Dichrono Hi-DAC
Hi Robn, I saw this a few days ago but didn't post because I have no experience with the Ensemble. Since you getting little response, here is my 2 cents; I do own the latest CD77 with Audyn output cap and agree with Mrjstark. It has the rare abili... 
best power cord for Capitole 24/192
I had the Cap MkIIse and also used the VD master with excellent results, but that was 2+ years ago. 
Solid State or Tube Preamp mated with Tube Monos?
Sounds as though you have not only have searched out many options, but are for the most part, are pleased with what you have. But I understand, change for change's sake, although sometimes not listenening for several days is also a nice change and... 
Is this tube sound????
The 1501, being an integrated hybrid actually is a SS amp w/ a tube preamp stage. Like you the 1501 was my 1st foray into any kind of tube based gear. What you describe is pretty much what I remember. That was about 7-8 years ago and it is giving ... 
Best Preamp $2,000.00 budget
I recently got a Sebring 300B from Ultra Fi and I have been doing a similar search. The one's that have got my interest are Artemis Labs, Music First, & a DIY from Slagle autoformer's. Finance's arn't there yet for me, so I haven't auditioned ...

Mapleshade tweaks
I have only used the Herbie's CD mat and when used w/ clear cd's in a mid-fi cdp they are effective and worthwhile. 
Tube CD player w/ balanced output
Although I'm not certain I would think that the 2 terms mean the same thing (true internal balanced). Some gear has xlr in/out puts but they are for convenience and the inside wiring is not balanced. 
powervar power conditioners
I have had good success w/ powervar units, but they have thier limitations and should only be used if you have a real issue. They will clean up the power supply nicely but they also will limit performance, slightly at the upper extreme and in term... 
Tube CD player w/ balanced output
If you can, audition a Cambridge Audio Azur 840c ($1100-used) Has balanced out and I think you will be very impressed. 
LFD Integrated Zero MK III
No experience with the LFD, but it caught my attention.I agree bid time on the LFD paired with a Cambridge 840c.Have been considering the LFD myself, from what I've read the natural and easy flow of the lfd should be a perfect counter balance to t...

What power cord with the Cambridge Audio 840C?
I'm using the AZ Tsunami Plus because it allows the 840c to sound a shade more harmonious and natural sounding, but I doubt that it does anything to improve transparency and top end frequency extension and air. I'm using a Melody tube amp and Zu s...
