Synergistic Power Cell 12, SX, PS Audio P20
You are comparing apples to oranges. The PS Audio unit is a power regenerator. You are going to get  120 volts of current from it. The Synergistic Research unit will give you the same current that is powering it. I have the Synergistic Research UE... 
How do you share the sweet spot?
I used to give my  guests the sweet spot and sit directly behind them. Yea I was being a good host but lousy company. It is taken more than  a little time and a few bucks but now I have a sweet spot over 6 feet wide so I have two very comfortable ... 
Tekton Design Moab
Congratulations you are going to love them. I have a pair of the Ulfberhts and my only regret is that I didn’t get them in a custom color. Tekton Design speakers while they are a performance bargain can be very expensive to keep because they tell ... 
Anyone try the Psvane Acme Supreme 300 B tubes ?
Thanks everyone for your responses especially shkong78 . Comparing them to NOS WE tubes and saying they hold their own tells me a lot and is exactly what I was looking for. 
Cary SLP-03 Tube Preamp- Ultimate Upgrade
Unfortunately I cannot comment on the SLP-03 but I did have the ultimate upgrade done for my SLP-05 and thought it was more than worth the money. Not only did it sound better but they checked everything out and replaced a couple parts that weren’t... 
Shootout of Nos 6sn7 tubes
Like tuberist I tried a lot of 6sn7 tubes. My favorites were the metal based Sylvania’s stamped USN. I now use 6f8g and BL 63 tubes instead of the 6sn7’s because I like the sound a little better and the old 6f8g tubes from the 40’s are a lot cheap...

Pass X150.5 or Odyssey Stratos monos?
+1 Klaus I have a pair of his Kismet References that he upgraded from Stratos and I couldn’t be happier. When you buy from Klaus or have them modified he does bias them to your electrical supply which is very important to getting them to sound rig... 
Who buy PS AUDIO ?
Their customer service takes a back seat to no one. I have had their DACs for years with the DSD DAC currently doing service in a low six figure system. I love the annual free software upgrade. I just purchased the Stellar phono preamp which is a ... 
Any Yep Roc Records Fans ?
@tomcy6  my second favorite recent release is The Steep Canyon Rangers- North Carolina Songbook. This recording caught me by surprise as I hadn’t listened to them before. 
BSG Technology Qol Fuse
@kostek52 I have mine connected after my preamp. Take the connectors that are running from your preamp to your amp and connect them to the Qol. Then run another pair of cables to your amp. To avoid confusion do input 1 & output 1. Hopefully yo...

Synergistic Research HFT's
I am surprised the “snake oil” naysayers who have never tried these products haven’t jumped all over this. I started out with one set of  5 HFT’s and noticed an improvement in soundstage depth and width. I followed the instructions for level 1. I ... 
BSG Technology Qol Fuse
Thanks guys ! I haven’t had good luck using Synergistic Research fuses at rating with some gear like my Cary Amps & Preamp & it is frustrating if they blow as soon as you install them. I can take my wife out ( before the virus) for a decen... 
BSG Technology Qol Fuse
Thanks Ozzy! Is it a fast or slow blow?
