Paradigm Persona: what do you think?
I’m using two Emotiva UPA-1 mono block amps.  
Not sure of term but I notice some distortion/vibration coming out the speaker port?
I took my handy flash light and looked into the ports. The speaker I’m hearing this in it appears the wadding has shifted and it almost blocking the port. The other speaker wadding is still intact. I’ll pull the speaker terminal block off tomorrow...

I’ll give it a closer listen this evening. My first impression of it was that it’s the drivers working hard. They are 3 way bookshelf speakers (Phase Technology PC 3.5).  
Digital Coax, optical, or RCA for use with my Bluesound Node player?
Bluesound did replace my unit with a new one and a new one I mean a Node 2I even though I had a Node 2. I haven’t received the cable yet so can’t comment. I already have a Audioquest power cable on it.

Furman Elite-20 PFi Versus Reference SPR-20i
I seem to have pretty stable voltage coming in. I’ve seen my 20 year old Monster Power HTS5400 fluctuating between 117 & 122. But almost is always right at 120. I can get the SPR-20i for a ridiculously low price and want it because it does see... 
Speaker stand spikes ~2” long?
Thanks for all of the recommendations but I found out that Dyanaudio has a 2” XL spike that I can buy separately. Hopefully these work but I still would love to check out the Gaia II feet but have a hard time justifying the $800 price tag which is... 
Speaker stand spikes ~2” long?
Thread is not correct for my stands. Plus is doesn’t say how long they are.

Hey guys, just ran into this group. I’m located towards the beaches.

Can XLR cables run bunched up together?
