Tube amp - tube socket problem
Agree, tweak the pin pockets. There's also some very fine pipe cleaner type wires that can be used to clean inside. Had mine so long, forget where they came from. I would also try and find a wire, same gauge as the tube pins, to slide into each pi... 
Tonearm lead connection on last leg
I would totally try and fix it myself before shipping it off, even shipping just the arm. But you will want proper strippers for that gauge wire. A new clip would be nice, but you could probably re-use the current one if you're careful. You'll nee... 
Tekton Design Moab
david_ten-How would it be impolite? Horses for courses.Shalommorgan-Millercarbon. What are your thoughts about Moabs with all BE tweeters, cost aside? I know the BE tweeter is an upgrade option. Eric is a total speaker builder, by which I mean he’... 
Best improvement for the buck
Depending on who you ask the correct answer is "room treatments" or "sell all your gear and buy a Raven integrated and a pair of Tektons". Don't be silly. Depending on who you ask the correct answer is "GIK" and "How NOT to buy a subwoofer" or s... 
Have you ever used a separate speaker selector unit to audition speakers? Would you?
I have! Jafco, 1974. Any thoughts about auditioning speakers at home with a speaker selector box? Yeah. Don't.

Thanks. The DI's are one of the most universally acclaimed speakers in memory. While looking into Moab I kept coming across guys like this who absolutely love their DI's. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7RxRTFx6Cd0=640s When you say large grin, ho... 
Your One Bullet Point Solution; Electrical Upgrade
Right.(falconquest, not the other one) My experience is the more direct the better. The main advantage of a dedicated line is not the ability to provide more current. Our systems do not require anywhere near even a 15A draw let alone 20A. What we ... 
What should you hear?
What I find however is that the imaging, sound stage is very dependent on the recording.  Right. Mono recordings everything is in a sort of sphere in the middle. Some recordings are flat, others deep. Sometimes vocals are centered, sometimes of... 
Linear Power supply for dedicated line
There's no good reason to run three lines, one is better for noise, and the digital analog thing you're talking about is a common misunderstanding. The optimal location is to plug everything into the same line and circuit. If the Shunyata has enou... 
Have you ever wondered who sets the trends in the hi-end speaker industry?
Speaker styling trends are established by committee, currently chaired by Clarence Carter. Before that was Stevie Wonder. 
Trying to fix specific issues with my listening area
You are on the right track with Tekton, it will be an improvement. And acoustics, depending on the meaning of "massive rug" and how much of the tile floor it covers it may well be too many hard surfaces contributing to the harshness you're hearing... 
Too good a post to waste
Yes, it is fairly easy to hear differences - if you actually try and hear the differences. That's the problem with people like Hirsch. They put themselves up as authoritative. Some fall for it. I did. Well I was young and a nerd into science and i... 
Have you ever wondered who sets the trends in the hi-end speaker industry?
Now ask a question who creates trends in the world of speaker systems? Replace colors with sounds, belts with speakers.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ja2fgquYTCg 
Yes, it is possible to make digital audio sound like vintage vinyl because I just did it!
Now if you can make your digital azimuth filter settings mimic cartridge tracking a record behavior by changing up and down left and right back and forth in a sort of quasi regular yet randomly varying way then it would be almost like the azimuth ... 
Too good a post to waste
TAS started in 1972! The Audio Critic in 1977 along with IAR (International Audio Review). Both were run by Peters (Aczel and Moncrieff, respectively). StereOpus and Bound For Sound (Martin DeWolf) appeared around that time. A bit later was Sensib...
