what are your top "audio bargins" in your system history?
All the Dunlavy speakers through the years and most recently the Doge Dac 7 Mk II. This DAC is nowhere close to broken in but is already the best I've ever heard.    
Do You Tell Others How Much You Have Invested in Your System?
I have happily lost count...  
Everything matter in the audio chain. Tests prove it!
I have used the Blu-ray version of Avatar as a reference disc to test the would-be improvements to the video side of our home theater. One of the scenes is when the helicopter is making a landing at a remote location. The grass is being blown and ... 
Everything matter in the audio chain. Tests prove it!
If you have a high-end projector in your stereo/video room, try an audiophile power cable. I recently experimented with a SOTA power cable from Audio Magic replacing the stock cable and the improvement in picture quality was dramatic. I guess ever... 
Shave your CDs
Don't knock it until you've given it a fair chance👆's another tweak that really works
@ holmz We may have to agree to disagree on some points. I know there is always a psychological element at work, but if you have been around a lot of live acoustic music, played an acoustic instrument or been in the hobby for an extended period o...'s another tweak that really works

Class D Amplification Announcement
Jeff Rowland perfected Class D years ago. Amplification is just a technology, not bad or good. It's what you do with it that counts.  
For those of you who had spent over hundred thousand dollars for your sound system.
No regrets. I am thankful for having the resources to fuel my enjoyment of the hobby and an understanding wife that has made it possible to make it fun not only for us, but for our children (who are now adults) as well.  
Which pair of speakers changed your Hifi life?
Magnaplanar 1C(s) were my first really serious set of speakers. Iterations later it was the Infinity RS-1B(s) and finally the Dunlavy speaker line. I am doubtful that I will ever replace what I have now, given that I am more than 'satisfied' with ... 
Supra Cat 8 Ethernet cable

Best Stereo Upgrade Value
Deviating a bit...the biggest value jump in my Home Theater was replacing the standard cable to my 4K projector with an audiophile power cable. I really could hardly believe what I was missing.  
FREE - THIEL CS 2_2 to a Good Home
My commendations. My experience and most probably many others is that we continue to purchase gear and we are left many times wondering what to do with the old gear that is still working perfectly, but has been stranded by virtue of our desire to ... 
I'm at the pearly gates and they tell me I can only bring in one jazz cd
