Best Type of Interconnect for Turntable?
I use Ayre electronics which are fully balanced so I got xlr connections for the turntable outputs as well.  
RCA IC instead of Coax?
It seems you're experimenting with connection RCA's....using different solder will also alter the sound  
Speaker Placement and Toe-In
When I experiment with toe in.....the soundstage is flat when they point directly at my listening position....as I move them out, the depth increases until I hear a hole in the middle....I went too far.  (Vandersteen speakers)  
Help fine-tune my speaker search
Im sure Richard Vandersteen would be glad to speak with you as well.  Give him a call....if he's not on the road he'll pick up  
Bowers and Wilkins, 801 D4
When my first wife died, I needed a present so I got B&W 802 (I think).   They might have been wonderful when I auditioned them, but they got very "annoying" in less than a month with my components......got Vandersteens and have remained.  
A rookie with 10K, seeking advise
It is oh so hard to build a system....all components sound different working with different components.  My system is all from the same manufacturer....so they all do the best they can with the same voice values.

Single vs Bi-wire Speaker Cable
I bi-wire....so there!!  
how much should I spend to get a better turntable than my current turntable?
I too would favor a Rega.....they have much experience in building turntables.   I too would agree that any used turntable would need new parts (idler wheel, bearings, etc.) to even approach what they used to do.  
What Power Cords for Rel S510 Subs?
What price is the improvement.   I found proper setup/source components, etc. made a bigger difference.  Is an improvement a difference in sound or an actual improvement.  Carnegie Hall to Allice Tulley Hall in New York.....the same orchestra play... 
NEW DUST COVER CARE AND CLEANING
mijo....so taken with your interest in my underwear.   I don't use a dust cover because it resonates with the sound of my stereo....unwanted for me.   I've not used a dust cover for years....occasionally dust the equipment, the floors, the blinds,... 
NEW DUST COVER CARE AND CLEANING
Throw it out

See if you can find an older Ayre V1xe
