How loud are you typically listening?
I second millercarbon’s point. “Supertramp loud” is the level where it sounds the best.  
Vibrating speaker cables
Bravo, Millercarbon Your posts and interpretations are very well thought out. I certainly learn something every time I visit this forum, thanks to you in large part. 👍🏼😎🎧 
Can't believe I let myself get sucked in again.
“Sonos” 🤣🤣 
How old are you?
Am 12.......chronologically 52.  
Opening Record Store
Too bad some here had to bring up politics......so sick of it and there is no reason self-control cannot be engaged to keep that topic disengaged. To the OP...... Buying an empty record store and not getting the name makes no sense. Several years ... 
Negotiate good price
Tuberist, I wholeheartedly agree with your agreeing with Dill and MC. :-) Seriously though, this sounds just like cold calls I get asking for 400 CPUs or 1,000 RAM modules and want “best price”..... I wasted my time on a “sale” like that just once... 
Pondering a change after 30 odd years...
My vote would be for KEF monitors on very good stands with a sealed sub in at least one corner, preferably two.......  
O.k after making some adjustments the sound is off the charts.This is BIG.
Mike in pa......I am envious of that experience. What a trip that must have been! Pun intended. The Dead played like no other band I have ever seen live..... Fortunately I saw them many times while living in Cali....Am grateful I went to their las... 
My venture into the world if demagnitizing vinyl. Your results may vary.

Analog or Digital and why?
Why not listen to everything you have? I listen to CDs, Cassettes, FM, Streaming, and LPs.My vinyl collection is my main focus as is my turntable.... Everything sounds great on a well put together system, some formats just sound better than others... 
ls FM radio even listenable any more?
Seattle has excellent FM still. Far left end of the dial has a bit of Jazz, Bellevue College broadcasts a massive variety.... KEXP is hard to grab sometimes but I have two NAD tuners that can play it nice and clean. Best part about an FM tuner is ... 
Should people who can't solder, build or test their speakers be considered audiophiles?
"Audiophile" is such a pretentious word when used by elitist enthusiasts.....Anyone who has taken the time to carefully put together a transparent and natural sounding system then SHARES that knowledge with others should be considered a "member" o... 
What was your most disappointing album purchase?
The Journey Greatest Hits re-release is just awful. Clearly an LP pressed from MP3 files. Absolutely awful.  
How many people here generally buy used?
I prefer to rebuild/restore used gear that might have issues, especially turntables. Currently run a rebuilt Beogram, Nak tape deck and a rebuilt NAD preamp. All other gear is used as well except for a Sony CD deck that I got new way back in 1987.
