What Speaker Cable for VIENNA MOZARTS
Hi Ernie:I'm more than likely going to go with Apature of which I have a good source for. They are very good & ridiculously cheap with my source. Of course I will be using it for mainly HT. Let me know if you are interested. I would be more th... 
Attention Conrad Johnson Premier 11A owners
I'm using the Sonus Faber Electa Amatours (originals). The CJ 11a really made them sing & have plenty enough power to drive them. Before the CJ I was using a Threshold T-200 (100WPS class A. There was literally a night & day differance IMHO.

What Speaker Cable for VIENNA MOZARTS
Keri...this is a second system for me. It couples as HT & audio. Driven by B&K pro ref 20 & 5125 amp & a Pioneer DV-37 front end. With that the cable does not have to be super high end but decent. 
PS Audio Power Port vs. Hubbell/Leviton
I used to work for Hubbell. You will get no sonic improvement from the hospital grade as opposed to the commecial grade, regardless of what anyone tells you. Leviton is junk. 
Upgrade CD player or wait
Upgrade now. If you choose to wait for a better universal format which will offer a wide selection, you may be waitng for another 10 years or more??? Get something with up sampling. 
Dented Tweeter?
Scootdog:I'm not trying to be gross here, but if it is a soft dome suck it out with your mouth. A vacumm may be too powerful & damage it. If it's metal dome, carefully do use as vacumm as Jeff instructed. 
Vienna Acoustics vs Revel Studios?
Chris: for a cd upgrade in your price range I would suggest the Resolution Audio CD-55 (pay about $1700 used). Athough I like & have owned Meridian, I find the Resolution to be a much more analog sounding source. Plus it's got upsampling...a g... 
Where to buy bases w/spikes for floor standers???
bobaloo...can you give me an exampleof a diy speaker co. & how I can get a hold of them? 
Vienna Acoustics vs Revel Studios?
Sorry Steve, but I disagree with you too. I think the Vienna's are great. They are a much more musical speaker than the Revel's IMHO. The Revel's are good too, but I would find them fatiging over time. Chris my recommendation would to keep the Bee...

Who build's Hybrid Integrated's wth Remote??
Twin Pathos 75 w sounds & looks beautiful 
Analysis plus oval silver or oval 9 ?
Viggen...no offense, but why would anyone like boring sound. Maybe perhaps you mean smooth or laid back as opposed to bright. I'm all for that. A smooth sounding system can still be dynamic, detailed & high in resolution, which is the sonic ch... 
Analysis plus oval silver or oval 9 ?
Ian...Try AQ midnight III. It's very reasonable & blows out AP-9. AP sounds veiled, much less dynamic & detailed in comparison. Quite frankly I don't know why AP gets so much press. It's BOOOOOOORING & drained the excitement out of my ...
