Power Conditioner vs A/C cables
Up until a couple weeks back, I had an old Shunyata Venom power conditioner that I’ve had for years and never really believed it made much difference. My dealer asked if I’d be willing to help him break in a new Denali 6000S conditioner. All I can...

Hey all,Quick update...decided to live with the 802s for a bit before swapping them out (was not in any way into the Blades or Paradigm 9H that I auditioned in Feb). On Friday I had my local hifi guy over to deliver and dial in a loaner REL G1 Mar... 
Oh my Wilco!

Nice one @maxwave I've looked into the F1s before...I really need to see/hear them in person. Thanks for the feedback on the R6.

Thank you all for your thoughts...A couple additional notes...My speaker replacement budget is up to $50kMy listening tastes are pretty varied... rock/folk/reggae/bluegrass/funkLastly, placement might not be ideal as I can't come off the back wall... 
Whats on your turntable tonight?
@beach2mtn I stopped getting married a long time ago, so no wife to leave when I rock out! I do have a super cool girlfriend that loves to listen to music too, but she’s a little less into J.P. than I am. She would have enjoyed Bob though.@big_gre...

Cheers and thanks again @russ69 . I'll do some research and see if I can find a place to demo the Triangles.

@big_greg very impressive transition from Judas Priest to Blood On The Tracks (one of my all time favorites)...did your wife leave you because of all the head banging? :)

@russ69 appreciate the thoughts on the Mac gear and you could very well be correct. I know the speakers aren't right and want to change them first and if I need to upgrade the Mac stuff, I have no sentimental brand loyalty...really like what I've ...
