10 Awg power cable to Bryston BIT-15 (Torus) power conditioner for less than 250$
Thanks @millercarbon for your reply. The used  Syngergistic Research 10 AWG 1.5 meter power cord I was watching on eBay that was listed for a “buy it now” price of ~$210 sold shortly after I put my original post. Maybe I tipped somebody on this fo... 
Thiel Owners
Does anyone know if Rob @ Coherent Source does ferrofluid replacement for the CS 3.6 tweeter. Or does anyone know the price of a genuine Theil replacement tweeter? 
Backert Rhumba 1.3 OR Modwright LS 100 ?
How do you like your 4b3? Also, which preamp are you currently using? 
Bryston Amp Experience Needed
This is exciting! I for one, look forward to your review of the 4Bsst3. 
Ferrofluid questions.
I suspect these tweeters are out of production. If you could purchase replacement tweeters of the exact spec they would surely be more than $100! These speakers are at least 30 years old. The sound is still quite good. I’m just wanting to perfect ... 
Ferrofluid questions.
thank you @erik_squires . What does VC stand for?The fasteners for the tweeter are exposed right in front of the speaker and then there is a triangular plastic guard covering the dome tweeter with more accessible fasteners. I saw a few you tube vi... 
Anyone using a wadia 170i?
I have a 171i with a wall wart. I could benefit from this. I don’t know how to PM you on Audiogon. Is it still available? From, Bill in Dayton, OH. 
Bryston Amp Experience Needed
I’m not sure what the sensitivity (efficiency rating) is for your KEF speakers, but my guess is that the Bryston 3B3 will perform fine and sound great in your system. I have a 4B2 which is a wonderful amp but I had an in-home demo of a 2.5B3 with ... 
Used copies of The Cure “Bloodflowers” on vinyl @ $300+?
@reubent - I just looked it up on Discogs. The Polydor double LP that is for sale is listed at $399! I don’t get the sense that the vinyl version has any different SQ compared to the CD. I suspect the high selling price is more about rarity and co... 
Soundstage Width and Depth
@baclagg - can I ask about your system? What pre-amp and amp and speakers and source are you using? I’m curious aside from the recording itself, which components can render a huge soundstage. My thinking is that a great preamp plays a big role. 
Used copies of The Cure “Bloodflowers” on vinyl @ $300+?
I just checked eBay and “4:13 Dream” on vinyl appears to be rare as well. I found a new copy listed for $123.19 and used copies at around $85 when you factor in shipping. How is this possible in the modern age from a band on a good record label wh... 
NAD 2200 Power Envelope
I had the 2200 amp, the earlier version without the “PE” on the faceplate. The owners manual talked about the whole “Power Envelope” circuitry which was supposed to make the amp much more powerful during transients, etc... The copy sounded convinc... 
Vibration Source?
Just curious if the “vibration” through the speakers is your system trying to resolve some detail on certain recordings and being unable to unveil the detail due to some system deficiency. When you said the same passage comes across as just “noise... 
iPad directly into Amp - okay idea? or bad idea?
Are you using a mini headphone stereo plug that splits into RCA’S right and left channel? If if you are proposing going straight to the auxiliary or tuner RCA input from the iPad, I would say that this is a bad idea. I mean, the sound quality from... 
About to purchase Bryston BP-2MM moving magnet phono stage for Sondek LP-12
My BP2-MM has yet to be delivered. Bryston is not shipping any orders right now. I’m under the impression that the Bryston 1/3 chassis phono stage plugs right into the MPs-2 external power supply. My dealer did say I needed to order the umbilical ...
