What creative ways have you stored your vinyl collections?
I have owned/used the Per Madsen modular system for years. Sadly/happily Per retired. Ryan Tinsel is now hand crafting the same modular component sytem. They look to be every bit as well constructed as the Per Madsen products and he offers additio... 
What Have I Bought?
Nice! I'm good at spending other people's money. :) 
What Have I Bought?
To find them in such well-cared for condition is rare indeed. Now to sweeten the nostalgia, find a well-cared for Advent 300 receiver to drive them with. If you are not into head banging or trying to fill a stadium with sound you’ll be very pleasa... 
What Have I Bought?
Advent actually made several iterations of the Large Advent Loudspeaker. The version you purchased, with the beveled (front) cabinet are the first version with a walnut cabinet. The earliest produced had no protective grill over the “fried egg” tw... 
Looking For Candidates For That Mythical 6922 Tube
Overall, I have favored Mullard tubes in the past. On the recommendation of Kevin at Upscale Audio I purchased a pair of Matsuhita/National 7DJ8 (6922 replacement) tubes for my headphone amplifier. They are well-balanced top to bottom, very quiet ...

As an afterthought, I probably would have kicked the end table (thus breaking a toe) for being in the way.  
Record mishaps
I’ve had a number of miscues (pun intended) involving records over the years. Something tells me that over time the odds/statistics of such an event happening are somewhat inevitable. Anyway, to error is human…

Price range to ask for used AR Ref1 and Passlabs X250?
You have many online resources at your disposal to do your research. Here are three for starters: Audiogon BlueBook, HiFi Shark and completed sales on eBay. Good luck.  
Chicago-area dealer recommendation
Another plus vote for Music Direct. 
High Fidelity Cable Company MC 0.5 waveguide
Okay, I have two in the system and my experience regarding break-in was very similar to what “slaw” describes. I tried three, but ultimately preferred the results with two. I would also swear/speculate that they improve the color saturation on my ... 
Mark Levinson vintage Preamp & Power Supply (ML-1 & PLS-150)
You posted in the right place. This iconic preamp was first produced in 1977. It looks like eBay is your friend when it comes to determining value and actually selling the preamp/power supply. This preamp was very advanced in its day and utilized ... 
The 3 best of the best Audio (HiFi) Designers ?
Harvey Rosenberg Nelson Pass / Wayne Colburn Roger Modjeski  
Marantz
Go to eBay and look under completed listings for real-world values. In general each unit looks to be worth somewhere between $500 and $600. If they are in perfect condition functionally and physically then the values could/would be higher. Origina... 
Moving tube equipment
What a load. There are zero issues with transporting your tube amps in the car for an hour or so. (Any defensive/evasive driving maneuvers excluded.) As a precaution, after you have them located/placed in their new environment it wouldn’t hurt to ...
