Speakers that mate well with Jeff Rowland electronics
I owned Jeff Rowland Model 7's power amps with a Consumate pre amp for many years. The best match I found was Duntech. I am currently using Kharma Ceramique 1's with the wiring upgrade. These would be a great match with the new generation Jeff Row... 
Ensemble or Hydra...
The Ensemble cables blow away everything I have tried including Hydra. Best part is that they are very cost effective. Give Joe a call at JC Audio (Mr Tweaker) he gave me a money back guarantee, but I kept them all! Good Listening, 
Pre-amp dilemma.... again
You might consider the Kora pre-amp. A sonic bargin at $2,100 new. It is remote control, all tubes & sounds great! Give Joe a call at JC Audio for input. He is a real tweaker! I am sure he can help you. Good Listening 
Equi=Tech or Shunyata / Hydra
Try the Ensemble, good price & will blow away the high price PC's. 1 meter is only about $480. It is even better than the King Cobra's.Good Listening

Speaker base - what material is best?
A Marble or Granite Base, 2 to 4 inches thick bolted to the speaker bottoms. This will really couple the speaker to the floors. Improve Bass performance, as well as the overall sound. I have done this with a number of speakers with great sucess.Go...

How does one get off the merry-go-round?
I think you have a good point here. Over the years I have tried all the approachs. Tri-amp, bi-amp, total seperates, multicables & the like.Now I seek a sound that I can live with, I still like mono amps, but only two. One line source pre-amp,... 
Maximum USPS Money Order is 700.
This one is a "no brainier”! Just restrict your purchases to $700. I am sure lots of spouses would just love that!On a more serious note. US Postal Money Orders are about the safest thing you can get besides cash. Even cash can be wet with green i...
