Putting in a dedicated power line. 2 receptacles ok?
Yes my terminology was incorrect. And I do have 2 circuits on different legs, sides , whatever it is called. And it has worked well for a number of years. After all these years I can’t quote my electrician verbatim. But as mentioned, maybe the sim...

Sorry, in your breaker box you have two sides or rows of breakers. By having them on opposite sides the ground is then not interacting with each other which reduces noise. I had a master electrician do the install and it was his recommendation, it...

I assume you mean a double duplex (2 port outlet)or two separate duplex outlets. I would stay with one outlet/duplex. What I did is 1 20 amp for audio and 1 20 amp for video with the grounds on opposite legs in the breaker box.

Calvin, sorry but I have never tried to pop the lid on one. Those look like some kind of hex/Torx screw. That said I would be careful opening the cover on something this as it could store a charge and "ZAP" you when you do get the cover off. Good ... 
Cartridges for Rega Tables
This gives me some ideas on what to try. I appreciate the help and suggestions. 
Cartridges for Rega Tables
I am currently using the Kleos with 3.5mm spacers, Jonathan Carr had told me that his calculations for the Rega arm with Kleos should be 3.4mm and rather than have a shim special made I figured 1 tenth mm was close enough. So if Rega carts are 14m... 
Cartridges for Rega Tables
Thank you both, I looked at the Excalibur site, but my German is a little off these days. Do you know if anyone in the US carries these? I had never heard of them before. 
Rega DAC ?
I owned the Rega DAC as well. As mentioned above, I would add that, yes very analog sound, but not engaging. It wasn’t analytical and fairly musical but just not engaging. I traded it in on the Chord Cutest and am happy with it, but as my audio-it...

I have both the Hailey and a Jaco. I bought them both new or as show demos actually. Mine have been working fine but as mentioned the company is dead, which is a shame. One of the features of the RSA products were the high end capacitors that the ... 
Sound bar versus surround system
I have had a surround system for years and continue to build on it. I have been to friends/relatives homes and heard soundbars from lower end to higher end. Although they do present the sound track very well and they do have the ability to give th... 
Ayre ayrelink adapter to 3.5mm for 12v Trigge
Thank you, JohnnyR. But Ayre does offer a schematic of the ground and trigger assignment for this plug, I am just investigating if I can get one already made that would be nicer than one I would make.

New ebay payments require SS#?
Back to the topic of eBay, the IRS and 1099’s. How can the IRS justify charging income tax on the sale of an item that was paid for with post tax income, sales tax paid at original purchase and sold at a depreciated price. They should refund the s...

In my business, fleet truck sales, we have had to take extra caution on where we leave trucks. People are stealing catalytic converters for the platinum and rhodium and selling them for an average of 150.00 each. Some of these are as much as 4000....

Oh I am sure that will be one of the ripples that follows. But everything else is as well, been to a lumberyard, grocery store, gas station etc lately?
