If leftists have their way, nothing will be made in the USA, but, "Made in China" stickers! 
In the middle of a pandemic, Stereophile reviews ~ $30K equipment
As long as there’s been life, on this planet; there’s been a food chain.                                                     Whining about it, started with humanity.

@noromance + david_ten:    Thank you, for publicly confessing to your experimentation and reporting your experiences.     There's still hope, for AudiogoN! 
Shootout of Nos 6sn7 tubes
luisma- If you like the short-bottle, 6SN7W: you should try the tall-bottle (metal or plastic/6SN7W or A), if you haven't already.      I used those, for around 15 years (in concert with my TSRPs, as they seemed to provide better Bass slam, as wel... 
What is up with Audio Research during the pandemic?
ARC used to have exemplary customer service (years back, when I owned their gear).      Since 2009; it’s part of the, "world" of McIntosh.         Enjoy your real estate: https://worldofmcintosh.com/

IM distortion, out the butt, per the AES!      I could not agree more,  elliottbnewcombjr!                   https://www.audioasylum.com/cgi/t.mpl?f=hug&m=178429  
Shootout of Nos 6sn7 tubes
Damn it, shkong78-     Why didn’t you do this shootout, and test those Russkie tubes, a month ago?      I’d have been looking for a pair of those, instead of buying the T-S’s.       Now, I have to start shopping again.     Thanks, pal!      ps: Wh...

As long as there are those that purchase HE equipment (regardless of price), there will be those that manufacture, sell and review, HE equipment (regardless of price).              There's a market, just as for luxury real estate, cars, yachts, je... 
Difference in sound between Siemens e88cc and e188cc?
Read the following info page (at least, to 3/4 of the way down), from Tubemuseum.                  The iteration is variously referred to, as solid halo, solid getter, disc, etc., though- I have no doubt; it’s been called other things.            ... 
Does altitude change the sound of speakers??
There’s something referred to as, "acoustic impedence", which affects, "sound pressure", and varies with air pressure.      Given your elevation change amounts to less than a mile; it’s highly unlikely you’ll notice anything.             Not that ... 
Difference in sound between Siemens e88cc and e188cc?
What audition__audio said, +1.      I found the Siemens tubes, made after the early 60’s (silver shield / internal date code), to be brighter (bordering on stridency), in my system.      To me; the absolute star of the Siemens 6922 line up, has to... 
Are manufacturer AC cables good enough?
"I don’t see much evidence that there are many here who are in your #3 group.    That’s because many of those who would pretend to belong to that group either dismiss mountains of evidence with a wave of the hand or - just as often - simply preten... 
Are manufacturer AC cables good enough?
@jl35 -      " ....the only testing that matters is the testing you do at home in your own system... and we buy with return privileges so there’s no bias to "pretend"...      There you go again: being logical and making sense!     How dare you (an...
