Turn table for my kid???
Just to close the loop on this I ended up getting my kid a bundle that included the Audiotechnica LPS-120 and Klipsch R-15PM powered speakers.  I got it shipped for $499.  We set it up last night and I must say my nerd side really enjoyed messing ... 
Packing up my CDP...bittersweet
@jafant  its tough to say because I was not able to do a direct comparison between the Luxman, Cary, and Esoteric.  Many years (and pieces of equipment) passed between me owning all of those cdp.  I will say I had both the Cary 303 and 306 and sol...

Replacement Sonus Faber grille strings?
I resorted to just cutting off the little piece of metal at the bottoms of each string and re-knotting them as mentioned above.  No way I am paying $1000 to have these redone.  In the meantime I will check out the various replacement options liste...

@yogiboy I apologise for not being more clear.  I should have said I want to use my daughter as a guinea pig!!!  She won't care too much about sound quality.  So I am paying $200 for 2 speakers with the LP60?

Thank you @yogiboy.  That's expensive though.  I just came across something that I think fits what I need but I have no idea if it's junk or not.http://www.needledoctor.com/Audio-Technica-LP60-and-Audioengine-A2Black?sc=2&category=46 
I think I need more bass traps, where to place them??
Thank you @erik_squires What I am realizing (at least in my room), is the floor to wall interaction has a bigger impact in terms of bass than the vertical room corners as is traditionally mentioned. I am thinking about getting the 12" x 48" Monste...

Yo TBoooe...How do you like your evos?  I've been eyeing one for some time now. joey_v!!  great to hear from you.  Hope all is well.I absolutely love the Evos! In my smallish room they give me everything I want in a speaker.  I just added 2 Rel... 
I think I need more bass traps, where to place them??
Thank you guys for the reply.  This weekend I did some experiments with some extra GIK panels I had.. I put a 244 panel on the ground next to the speaker, a 244 on a Softfit bass trap at the first reflection point, and the Softfit was laid horizo... 
I think I need more bass traps, where to place them??
Thank you for the post guys and sorry for not being more clear. As @onhwy61 mentioned my room is almost a cube at 10’ l x 9’ w x 9’ h. Note that the back wall behind me is 36" tall, above which the space opens up to my family room and kitchen. Bec... 
Did I buy a counterfeit REL T5/i sub??
@maplegrovemusic , so was the sub counterfeit?  Did the new owner tell you why he felt suspicious? 
Did I buy a counterfeit REL T5/i sub??
Thanks for the input guys.  My plan was to contact Rel directly on Monday but just wanted to get your thoughts first.  Regarding the serial number, they are same format, font, etc.I appreciate it guys.  I felt that probability was low the sub is c... 
Replacement Sonus Faber grille strings?
@daveyf, the one thing I have going for me is my room may not be an acoustically small room.  Behind my seating position is only a 3' tall wall, above that is open to my family room and kitchen.  I will say, so far so good.  The second sub adds mo... 
Replacement Sonus Faber grille strings?
Definitely a PITA!  Good thing I love these speakers so darn [email protected] , off topic but I just picked up another sub to go with my Evolutions.  I am in the process of dialing it in now.  I just bought a calibrated mic and will be using Room EQ W...
