any thoughts on apogee centaur speakers?
BK I have a set of Slant 6s that I use (and I'll never part with 'em!) When I first got them I switched over to Aragon 2004 that produced outstanding results for me (Bi-wired) and imaging just blew me away! I changed my entire system and then used... 
Mass and vibration cancelling on top of CD player?
I'm using 2 Fat Boys from Eden Sound on my ARC and I also found a difference in the sound. I did it principaly to even the weight distribution as it sits atop Bright Star Big Rock/Air Mass combo but found it also improved my sound. 
Advice for new Integrated amp please.
I'm using a Classe CAP 151 with Apogee speakers, it is a great match and would also seem to fit what you're looking for as well (and of course this is just my subjective opinion)but the presentation is very neutral and non fatiguing. 
Grover Huffman GH RCA ZX+ cables vs...
I'll chime in on Grover's cables also, I have a set of SC version (speaker) and a balanced SX IC that I use. Yes the break in DOES TAKE some time fully agree with that but, they imaged with detail right from the get go! Now I'm listening through A... 
Favorite lp of all time
Remote Control, The Tubes 
Room, Decor and acoustics...
First of all, what does your system consist of Tubes, SS or a combo of both)? Your listening preferences (which will have a big effect on what your going to have to do)? Your room will with NO DOUBT effect what you hear in conjunction WITH your sy...

Interconnect recommendations, please
I'll join with Wideload and enthusiastly recommend Grover's cables. He has recently refined them a bit more and are now deemed ZX. I have the SX version IC and what I call Silver Ribbons speaker bi-wire. They are neutral and very cost effective an... 
One artist, band, you keep coming back to
No doubts for me as well as others, for me it is the Tubes. I've had the pleasure to see them live 7 times now with my favorite release "Remote Control"!! And add to that Megan Slankard's release "Freaky Little Story" 
Looking for a Tubes CD
Phasecorrect-Ahh you hit my all time favorite Tubes release!Remote is a great release, and was even better seeing it live when we saw 'em 
Looking for a Tubes CD
Rockpig, The Premium Gold Collection was a short run collection that was issued, for what ever reason they stopped pressing it. I had it ordered from Amazon origionally but, had the order cancelled. I found it there again from a private owner but,... 
Hybrid SACD are they compatible w/non SACD playe
Thank you all for your input and education for me on this question. I have been seeing Hybrids from Audio Fidelity and some of the titles are attractive to me and have been wondering about the ability to play them. Thanks to all of your respective... 
Cyrogenic treatment experience?
Have 2 differeent cords that were BOTH cryo treated. the immediate effect was (when inserted) was more than just noticable and the break in (if you will) was substantially reduced (This is ONLY MY OPINION) but the sound was very stable for the out... 
Small difference equating to a big difference?
Could just be as Ivan has said that the inclusion of 2 of the same branded ICs has that better synergy that is making that difference. But might I also ask if you made any other subtle adjustment to our system as well when you changed the Ics? And... 
Recommendation Speaker Cable around $1000-$2000
You've heard me endorse these many, many times before and I do so still again, get in touch with Grover Huffman, his cables are netural, add no artifical additives are reveal just what the recording has on it, as well as being an outstanding value.
