Help! 220 to 110
Thanks Jim. Yes, just checked and the country uses 230/50. Obviously knowing very little about this topic and just to clarify, when you say:"Take the FLA (full load amps), VA (volt amps), Watts, of the power amplifier/s and multiply by at least 3 ... 
Which band IS really America's Greatest (rock & roll band)?
NRBQ? I’d never heard of them, saw that many folks here consider them The Best American band ever, so just googled them. WHAT???? Are you f’ing joking??? No wonder this country is in the mess it's in :)Lordy. Lordy, Lordy me!!! LMFAO :) 
Which band IS really America's Greatest (rock & roll band)?
The Grateful Dead, no question. You may not like their music but as far as success, legions of fans following them around the country year after year, the number of concerts performed, years together, earnings, subject matter and lyrics being sole... 
Music Streamer Quality
Another vote for Bluesound Node 2. If you run that into a Schiit Gungnir multibit dac, you're talking seriously good sound, a highly functional and a really well designed music server for a bit over 2k. If funds allow, I think it's a superlative b...

THE most sonically dissappointing (lp) you own of great music?
Hilarious, I saw the title of this posting and immediately thought of my 5 copies of Who's Next, wtf?  :)))  
Tube advice
Thanks for all the great advice. These are the amps I have:Phono Ref 2 SERef 5 SE PreAmpRef 75 PowerThe Ref 75 has easy access bias from the front panel so that's probably pretty safe. I'd definitely have to do some homework on how to bias the tub... 
Etiquette for a listening session?
I agree with jmcgrogan2, best to real listening alone. Even amongst audiophiles, your system is fine tuned to you and may not be the "be all and end all" for someone else. When I rode a motorcycle, while it was fun to have a girlfriend on board, I... 
turntable speed control
I’ve owned both these products and am commenting from direct personal experience. When I owned a VPI Classic 3, I purchased a used SDS (for about $750) and noticed a definite improvement in sound quality. I was in an upgrade phase and that set-up ... 
Turntable isolation...
shoe has got it right, but in a small NYC apt there's no extra rooms, doors to close or signs to post. 🙂 
Anyone change record clamp on Basis 2800 turntable?
