Should Amps be plugged into a power conditioner?
My system is much improved running all of it, including ARC Classic 60, through a PS Audio PowerPlant 12. Bass, soundstage, detail all better, no question. And it's all protected from surge.¬†  
Help me pick a Dac
The Music Room is selling factory freshened PS Audio DirectStream Mk I's for $2000 with a factory warranty. I got one and it was in brand new condition and I also bought an Air Lens. The DAC deal has got to be the best deal anywhere near the price!  
Flexible Power Cords
Morrow makes flexible power cords.  
DAC suggestions for a reasonably modest system
The $2000 deal on PS Audio DirectStream Mk. I factory refurbished and with a warranty has got to be the screaming deal in DAC's. I got one and an AirLens and love it. You get this through The Music Room who bought up all the traded in Mk. I's when... 
Favorite Obscure Rock Song
OMG! I can't forget one of my new fave groups! The Slambovian Circus of Dreams doing A Very Unusual Head!!!! Check them out! They're from the Sleepy Hollow area along the Hudson and are fantastic live. Very original and impossible to categorize.

You want obscure? How about Root Boy Slim and the Sex Change Band, Dare to Be Fat, You Broke My Mood Ring, Boogie Til You Puke. Great live band in the DC area years ago. Also, Tonio K. just about anything off the album Life In the Food Chain but... 
Floor to Bookshelf
You may want to give Fynes a listen. Very good in that price range and easy to drive. Their smaller floorstanders might work and save you the price of stands. Beware of bright speakers in search of resolution, as these might be fatiguing long term...

Jafant My system is VPI HW19 MkIII with Premier FT3 arm and Grado Sonata low output, ARC CD3, ARC SP9 MkiII, ARC Classic 60 feeding the CS 3.5's. I know you're a cable guy, so I replaced initial Audio quest speaker cable and FMS Blue interconnect...

biannuzzi22 Contrary to what many will say, CS 3.5's do NOT need big watts or the ability to go down to 2 Ohms. The 3.5 is one of the (perhaps the easiest) easier Thiels in this regard. They will, however, really show whether it is a quality ampl...
