Soundstaging and Imaging: The Delusion about The Illusion
@hombre- The thread’s been dead, for going on three years.     You apparently felt it sufficiently, "important" to resurrect.     Get a life! 
Newbie question
Receiver Tape (and most, "processor") outs are full line-level circuits; not affected by (in circuit before) volume, balance, tone, etc controls.     Worthless, far as an output source for an amplifier, outside of the receiver’s Selector/Source sw... 
Which VTF Scale are you using?
Bought an Acoustech digital, a few years back.      Works great. 
The guru on fuses:
               ^^^^^^     Projection, exemplified!    ^^^^^^^^^   WHY is YOUR cult, "so threatened" by another's possible experimentation/experience? 
The guru on fuses:
"I commented before that these fuse discussions are useless. For Gods sake, take advantage of Music Directs 60 day policy and try their Hi Fi Tuning fuses. Don't measure and just listen. If you don't hear a difference, then return them for a ful... 
I nominate this company as building best speakers!
My first question to Allan Moulton would be: how many live music events/venues, has your 10 year old son attended/visited?                                                                                    The only Magnepan that could be fairly ...

1975 New Reflektor 6n23p SWGP or Siemens/Amperex/Telefunken Cca?
Post your opinions, please. 
1975 New Reflektor 6n23p SWGP or Siemens/Amperex/Telefunken Cca?
@xenolith -   Sounds as though our sonic palates are similar.      Given you got those from Kevin (very reliable NOS source): in most circuits, they should last around 10K hrs.      Brent's another of my favorite tube mongers.         You're p... 
1975 New Reflektor 6n23p SWGP or Siemens/Amperex/Telefunken Cca?
Tried a plethora of 6922 types, over the past couple decades.      I’m using six of the early 60’s/grey-shield, round getter, CCa Siemens, in my system, at this time.        I also have spare CCa and E188CC pairs, of the same iteration/vintage.   ... 
Pentode Power Tubes - Ultralinear vs Triode
"FWIW if ultra-linear is set up correctly, the result should be a pentode or tetrode power tube operating with the same linearity as a triode but with about 90% of the power it could make as a pentode or tetrode."                                ... 
Anyone use auto lifters? Opinions
Thus far: no reason to doubt I'll get another 30 years of faithful/gentle service, out of my second Safety Raiser (AT6006/original 80's version).        
Is this still as important?
What russ69 said, plus ONE. 
FTC may end amplifier rule! ACTION NEEDED
The way that Denon is rated and what it outputs, driving seven channels, isn't an, "example" of anything.        It's capable of 11.2 channels.      You expect every HT receiver company to list the output of their components, into every conceivabl... 
FTC may end amplifier rule! ACTION NEEDED
"I had a Denon X6500H for example that is rated 140 wpc,  2 CHANNELS DRIVEN.   Gene tested it with 7 CHANNELS DRIVEN and the wattage was only 64 wpc or so."        That’s EXACTLY what’s to be expected, with a component of more than two channels.  ...
