My transport has "tuning dots" what are these?
Back when the dots wrere just comming into vouge the owner of the high store I dealt with advised me to use quarters on my speaker bases for tuning to save money, they also did have a positive effetct. 
What's a Triode configuration?
Judy426 Is it actually a deficency with the AR or just a compatabilty mismatch between componets and ICs? I have been pretty fortunate with my matching and get very nice sound but I have been careful as to what I had and how I've changed. Also I h... 
Please help with best PC placement
I agree with Driver, my slant is that you might want to start with the scource componets first though as that is where your presentation will origionate from. I know myself that I too have just upgraded power cords to my Integrated (moved my CryoP... 
Copper vs Hybrid differences
Coherency without tuning is what I'm chasing, I need it to stay netural. I use RSA Poeima Signiture ICs (Silver) and (I've never been sure) my spaeker cables may be hybrid. My speakers are Apogee Slant 6's and I adore the music from them, so as I ... 
Review: Ridge Street Audio Poiema Signiture Interconnect
Hassel, That's very unfortunate, I had my Poiema's engenieered specifically for my system and they continue to be nothing but sensational. I am now considering replacing my speaker cables and LAT Int.is a forerunner to so, I'd be interested to hea... 
David Elrod. the man , the cable the company.

Looking for non-boomy full range speakers
I agree with Velo62, I'm using Apogee Slant 6s in a small room with excellent results. Should you want bigger bass the Slant 8 or the Centaur Major as mentioned would also be great choices. 
Intergrateds: Classe,Krell,Bryston.......
I can't comment on the others mentioned but I have a CAP 151 (cousin to the CAP 100) and detail, transparency and dynamics are just great! I've just recently reentered the high end world again but I haven't forgotten what makes music so involving ...

My new Accuphase 408 is lacking ......
I would still give it more time to burn in and settle before you start to change (even though I agree with (Bob_bundus), it migh be a "synergy" mismatch for you. If you decide to change ac cable as always if you have a chance to audition first it ... 
My new Accuphase 408 is lacking ......
How new is the 408? that would be a starting point to help with some possibile solutions. 
System advice and upgrade path?
Corina, I sound like the preverbal broken record but..you may be able to get closer to audio nirvana by controling vibrations especilly for your CD. May I suggest a Bright Star Audio Air Mass/Big Rock combination as a start for around $350 and you...
