speaker cable upgrade
What's the other equipment in the system? 
PS Audio DL3 signal input querstion
I just looked at the BD85 manual, and it sounds like the "off" position could output 96k, if the disc is encoded for this. I do believe the DL3 will only decode a 48k signal. Sounds like a question for Panasonic tech support.

I may need to rethink my second statement. I was assuming older DVD player, and this is Blu-Ray. Consult owners manual or try it either way.

Set to PCM. The other setting for 96k does not affect the digital output. 
Shindo preamp with Mcintosh MC252
Why not use a McIntosh C220? They are designed to go together. Should be a perfect match. I have a friend using this combo, and he loves it. 
Bookshelf speaker for Stingray II?
Why not wait to see what the Manley does with your current speakers? It's additional power will give you more body and impact. 
Dedicated Line ....... my system SUCKS
Read the thread about dedicated line on 1-27-2011, good info. 
Revel Gems - Single Wire, Bi-Wire, or Bi-Amp
If you bi-amp, then vertical, otherwise single wire. I know bi-wire has been audio fashion for some time, and I jumped on the bandwagon as well. After a few years of trying this, myself and some hi-fi buddies, we thought single wire sounded better... 
A great amp for some monitor audios
Hi Caveman33, I have always thought the A308 delivered a warm, fatigue free sound with a wide, deep soundstage. Extremely far from being dry and bright. I know some will say different, but I think what they are hearing is a result of something els... 
dedicated power line
Receptacles are rated for either 15a or 20a, but as you said, some are not labeled. Should be on the original spec sheet. 
best premp for a pair of pass aleph 30's?
Absolutely, a Pass preamp for the best synergy. They were designed to go together. 
dedicated power line
Absolutely, same phase leg. Thanks for the additional comment. 
dedicated power line
Hi Neil, I think the basic cost effective way is to run two dedicated 20 amp lines, one for analog and one for digital, with good quality wire, 20 amp breakers, and 20 amp outlets, but not hospital grade. 
A great amp for some monitor audios
Hi Caveman33, great short list, but then I've used Musical Fidelity for years, original X-series, A3, A308, and A5. Currently use the A308, as it has been the best so far. On the used market, it's great performance for the price. General advice, w... 
Upgraded power cables- Who's on First?
Who's on First? Most important power cable is the one from the breaker box to the outlet. Can I assume everyone has a proper dedicated line? Two would even be better.
