I have a Qkore6 also.  I use a banana-USB ground wire run to a back up USB input on my Innuos server.  I also have a banana-ethernet ground cable run to my Qnet switch.  A banana-male XLR run to an unused digital input of my DAC....All with great ... 
I finally purchased a new Integrated Amp
Congratulations, great choice!  Looking forward to your thoughts on how it sounds in your system.

The Best Isolation/ Vibration Footers per component - what's your experience?
@richardhkI got the RevOpods specifically for my 2 REL subs. I couldn't find a footer with the screw size that would accommodate the thread of the REL. I wanted to use Nordost SortFut (I use them on my main speakers) but Nordost didn't have a sc...

IsoAcoustics GAIA footers: impressions
I use 4 RevOPods under each of my 2 REL Carbon Limited subs. I had a hard time finding an adaptor screw thread size that would work with the REL's. RevOPods has a multitude of screw sizes and had the one I needed. BIG improvement over stock fee... 
Set-up with two subs and an integrated amp
rbach +1I have 2 REL subs and connect them via a 'speakon' high level input from my amps speaker terminals. I found this connection is by far the best way to connect a sub.

Videos of your System
@roxy54I understand what you are saying but the YouTube video channel I referenced has several videos that compare components or speakers against each other playing music on his system. I know it's almost impossible to hear the difference over co...

Stillpoints Aperture or Synergistic UEF panels Which one?
I also have (4) 16" ASC tube traps in corners behind my speakers.  They work so well with the Apertures and control a different area of the frequency....I would never sell my ASC tube traps. 
Stillpoints Aperture or Synergistic UEF panels Which one?
@ozzy,I have a wall 2' behind the listening position and was having decay time problems at certain frequencies. I first tried large absorbing panels on the wall but it just killed the sound...they sucked all of the midrange and top end out of the... 
Stillpoints Aperture or Synergistic UEF panels Which one?
I've never used any Synergistic products but use 4 Stillpoints Apertures behind the listening position.  They are wonderful!  They don't make the room too dead or too reflective...just right.  I have had them for 4 years so not sure which version ...
