Cookies. Just another reason AGon sucks
As I said, I USED to participate.  After all the nastiness in every thread, I participated less and less.  Too many regulars are condescending and rude, and it's too bad.  The forum has become less and less fun and informative while getting more a... 
Looking for a vinylesk sounding DAC
Digital is never going to sound like vinyl.  It just isn't.  There's no needle, it's not analogue.So you bought a Tesla, but you wish it sounded like a Ferrari.  There's no cylinders, pistons or exhaust.  But, you could play a recording through th... 
Audio Research preamps EXCESSIVE OPERATING COSTS
By the way, look at Primaluna instead.  None of the problems you bring up, sound quality is very nearly as good, and the cost is less than half.  And, with their auto-bias functionality, you can buy tubes anywhere, they don't have to be matched, a... 
Audio Research preamps EXCESSIVE OPERATING COSTS
You can use tubes you buy elsewhere.  But, be aware, that will void the warranty. If a tube burns down, ARC will often have other problems, like resistors that burn too.  You have to send it back for service, and you will pay unless you got the tu... 
Really...My favorite power tube is reissue that's not widely popular

Really...My favorite power tube is reissue that's not widely popular
@noromance My experience was similar to @mulveling .  But, it's definitely speaker-dependent.  Before the new speakers, I had B&W 803N and then Revel F208.  For both of those, the KT150 was better than EL34 overall, although I'd say that the E... 
Really...My favorite power tube is reissue that's not widely popular
@mulveling Thank you for the follow up!  I actually stopped playing in this forum, because I got tired of so many jack asses who have to pontificate and condescend in every darn thread.  I'm sure you know who I mean.  But, this one thread sent me ...

@ieales I just love how you cite yourself.  Not only do you think you are really smart, you look to yourself to validate how smart you are!  Is your real name IE Trump?

10 Audio Cable Myths and Facts
I think it's time to leave this forum.  There really is too much negativity, arguing, name-calling and people who have their own agenda, rather than being a "community".  Why is it always a fight?  It doesn't have to be this way, folks.I used to t... 
10 Audio Cable Myths and Facts
So what if he's a cable manufacturer?  There are plenty of those in here.  He has an opinion, and there are plenty of those in here too.  I agree that if he's trying to sell something, he should pay for a listing like anyone else.  I also agree th... 
REL subwoofer using only red cable not yellow per REL technical dept
adding a link. https://relsupport.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/115004649048-Stereo-Subs-Connection-Method Here it says you can use either red or yellow. 
REL subwoofer using only red cable not yellow per REL technical dept
Going back to OP.  I have two REL T/9i in my setup.  I had them wired with yellow left and red right for both.  Then, I read about RELs recommendation to run them as stereo, and wired them that way.  They suggest that you can put red and yellow to... 
Is it all worth it?
I love the sound of a record, as well as the experience of cleaning, flipping, listening to the whole thing, and collecting. I like to find that treasure, bring it home, listen to it, catalog it, and find out I already had it. Dag nab it!  luckily... 
Subwoofer insight.
He is trying to say the REL subs are junk and that I have them hooked up wrong, even though I did it exactly as shown by the designer.   Obviously he knows way more than the engineers at REL.    You can tell by his mastery of language. https://rel...
