Do you ever miss vintage gear you no longer have?
I sure do. Sold a fully refurbished Krell KSA-250  amp 10 years ago and missed it ever since. Arguably the best sounding power amp I have ever owned. The other item of HiFi equipment I regret selling were a pair of Yamaha  NS1000M speakers I purch... 
Audirvana and Tidal Synchronization Problem
Just solved my own problem. Yes, as simple as deleting the old version of Audirvana Plus from my laptop. 
Reel-to-Reel deck service shop recommendations

Anyone buys master tape dubs ?
I have just got in R2R recordings (Revox B77, MK2, 2T, HS) and have just purchased my first tape; Lyn Stanley, Live At Bernies. All I can say is wow! Probably the best recoded and sounding music source I have ever heard. That good, really did soun... 
Apogee Acoustics repair
Apogee Divas are one of the best speakers I have ever heard, period. Worth talking to Rich Murry at TSW about restoring them. Full restored they are reputed to be among the best sounding speakers in the world! Ken Kessler of HiFi News certainly th... 
Pre-Recorded Reel To Reel Tape Recommendations
Mine is 2T, HS. 
An audio rack that really does make a difference.
Core Audio designs are esthetically and functionally superb. My TT and associated equipment sits on a 3 shelf plyKraft rack. They look incredible and are extremely well build. These racks are so sturdy you can jump up and down in front of it whils... 
My "audiophile" weakness(es)...ie: how the item looks, and you?.
I agree entirely, the look of HiFi equipment in my living room is very important. This is why I assembled this system:https://systems.audiogon.com/systems/7324#&gid=1&pid=1At the end of the day I have combined outstanding sound quality wit...

This is wonderful, thanks for sharing. 
If you could buy any system, regardless of price, what would it be?
Probably this one:https://forum.audiogon.com/discussions/take-two-2c-hifi-epiphany-worlds-best-systemSimply put, both systems were exceptional in every way, definitely humbling my own $50k system. 
McIntosh MC207
I use a MX122 with a MC207, this system replaced a Krell HTS 7.1 and Krell TAS. I only used the HTS 7.1 as a volume control, all HT processing was done by an Oppo UDP-205. Results with both systems were excellent IMHO. But the McIntosh equipment j... 
One of the Best Stereo System in the World!

Who does Krell KSA-150 rebuilds/recapping ??
Going back a bit here, had the KSA-250 rebuilt by Krell in 2004. From what I remember, took about 2 weeks, something like 3 weeks total with shipping both ways, total cost was about $1k. Past experience with Krell's service department has been not... 
Who does Krell KSA-150 rebuilds/recapping ??
Why not have Krell rebuild it for you. They rebuilt my KSA-250 and I ended up with the single best amp I have ever heard/owned. That simple.
