geoffkait-  That's a great, creative and artistic idea(KUDOS)!   
my speakers hum
Unless your speakers are self-powered, they can't create their own hum.    
Magneplanar speaker terminals. is there an adapter to....
BTW: Some of WBT's & Furutech’s binding posts have set screws to retain the leads in the ends of the threaded posts. I’d personally prefer solder, but- there’s another option, if you don’t want to do any soldering and don’t mind their price. (...

smotojo- Don’t believe you’ll find any 5 ways with crimp connection. Many come with a terminal/soldering eyelet that fits over the threaded part of the post and is held by the mounting nut. The end of the threaded post should have provision for so...

The spacing and hole size of the stock Maggie post is standard, so- changing to Vampire or WBT 5-way binding posts(I've done both), is simply a matter of assembly, tightening the nuts on the new posts and soldering the leads to the new terminals, ... 
Volume Control setting corresponds to how many db down (-db) from 0db at full volume?
WAY too many variables, from system to system and from recording to recording. 
new marantz sc7 and sm7 system I bought from Japan in 1979.
Some of what you've listed have been sold recently on ebay.  Keeping your eyes on the site will give a pretty good idea of their current worth.  Of course, what people are asking is not necessarily what the pieces are bringing.  ie: (http://www.eb... 
Do we really need anything more than 8" woofer and 1" tweeter for medium size room?
Listen to enough live music and your concept of what the bottom end and room ambience are supposed to sound like will change.

You,  "...have used them with US and European voltages." and they're still, "brand new"?   Neat trick!   
new marantz sc7 and sm7 system I bought from Japan in 1979.
Constructed with an untold number of electrolytic capacitors, that are now over 37 years old, it would be a good idea to be certain the pieces are actually functional, before trying to sell them. What you get will depend on the yen a buyer might h... 
Analysis Plus speaker cables
I’ve been using the Big Silver Ovals, for the past four years, with great satisfaction. I don’t want anything in my system to editorialize what’s on my personal recordings. I found them to be considerably more transparent than the Wireworld Eclips... 
Atmasphere amps trustable?
@Wolf-  You misread the name on those amps.  Those were not Atmasphere amps(made in the USA), but Atmohammud amps(imported from Syria).    Can't take your eyes off of them, for a second! 
Can I use a step up transformer?
Yes, you can! Be certain to match the SUT’s impedance with the Dyna’s. Actually the 20X-2 L’s got a lowish output impedance of 5 Ohms and Dyna advises to load it at 30 Ohms. I have a Denon and a Dyna(both 30 Ohms), that I’m using with an Auditoriu... 
First "audiophile" system, now what? Suggestions for best "bang for the buck" upgrade?
Contact these guys and ask for Joe, regarding auditioning a set of interconnects and speaker cables, based on your particular system/components: (http://www.usedcables.com) Personally, I recommend either Kimber or Synergistic Research’s entry-leve... 
Continuum Caliburn - really the best TT on earth?
My remark was, "It’s also INEVITABLE". As I stated later, it’s HUMAN NATURE.  My transposing of letters was a JOKE, and I made no, "remark" about your spelling.  If you were born with no sense of humor, that’s tragic. No one in Holland exhibits an...
