Do you trust your ears more than measurements?
I use my ears, 100%. Every once in a while, I get the bug to change some settings, adjust some parameters, that sort of thing... Invariably, I tune it back to where it was (or very, very close, anyway). That leads me to believe I’m pretty much ... 
Change Revel BE driver color to black?
@ronboco  No, lol.....and I did find a Be tweeter that is not enclosed in a "cage", so I stand corrected. https://www.madisoundspeakerstore.com/beryllium-dome-tweeters/satori-tw29bnwg-4-beryllium-dome-tweeter-with-waveguide/   That being ... 
vibration control - cd player
That's a higher-end spinner, so I have to believe Hegel put some thought into the feet. That being said, they're probably also assuming it's going to go into a real audio rack, which would at least help with vibration dampening. I've used Iso-pod ... 
Change Revel BE driver color to black?
Ain't no big thing @roxy54 . My point was to the OP.....don't mess with it, that's all....no harm intended, no offense taken. Be good.  
Change Revel BE driver color to black?
Ummm....I suggest you look up the properties of beryllium. But whatever...what do I know? *ahem* Goofy? Lol. Ok.....  
Change Revel BE driver color to black?
All Be tweeters are encased in a cage. Because it's extremely toxic. Don't f with it.  
Anyone else order Caladans from Clayton Shaw?

Did your system getting better the more money you spent or more experience you gained?
Both. Good equipment costs money, but you have to end up with a sound you like and are comfortable with. That takes experience, at least enough where you can be honest with yourself.    
When you can't unhear !
I've had a few of those kinds of experiences, but there are 2 that spring to mind: First was an audition of an Esoteric SACD player. Whoah. So THAT'S what a high-end player sounds like. Bought it. The second was when I tried a SR fuse in my prea... 
Tekton Open Baffle Speakers
@pindac, I really enjoy my EP speakers (I think they're the 2.8's with 2X 15" Carbon woofers, a 12" Carbon mid and a concentric tweeter, upgraded wiring and stock external crossovers). My only complaint would be the tweeter could be a little smoo... 
Tekton Open Baffle Speakers
I looked at the new OB's from Tekton on their site. I just don't see $7k there. I have no idea how they sound, but that's a lot for what it looks like it is. I'm not dumping on them, but (as a case in point) I bought a used pair of TOTL Emerald ...
