Why do hipsters prefer analog?
I don't care why hipsters are listening to vinyl.  I am just glad they are since it helps keep a very good format alive.  
What is your record cleaning regimen?
I suppose I might be a bit lazy, but I find that cleaning my LPs in the Degritter on the heavy setting then using an antistatic brush just before playing is an entirely adequate regime.  I like simple.  I have hundreds of old LPs I got for free ba... 
Speaker/equipment placement
@bikeboy52 “New way to judge the strength of your marriage, speaker brand ,size and placement, we’ve been able to stay together for 26 years even though a pair of Apogges 24 inches from the back wall” By this standard I had a wonderful marriage ... 
Bathroom grooves
"Man, you really need to shave your back..."   I don't know why any man would want to shave their back unless they just wanted to appear less masculine.  
Keeping your components Dust Free
I use a natural China bristle paint brush lightly sprayed with Pledge all surface dusting fluid to get in the nooks and crannies.  It is as soft as a make up brush but much larger.  
Other factors affecting sound
I see what you mean about lonely.  As best I can determine his forum has zero threads with zero replies.  I have been more entertained reading the text on a Lysol bottle while sitting on the throne.  
Upgrade From Clearaudio Satisfy CF to Tracer?
I have a Clearaudio Performance DC Wood tt with the Tracer tone arm.  With my Ortofon Cadenza Bronze cartridge it is very marvelous.  
Other factors affecting sound

Sophia Electric is not honest
Back about fourteen or fifteen years ago I bought a used Sophia Baby Electric from an executive of Sophia who told me he was selling it because he had it in his office system, and he had received a promotion within the company which necessitated h... 
What's the heaviest speaker you've ever owned? What's the tallest?
Tallest were Acoustat 2+2s at seven ft. ten inches.  Heaviest are my present fully horn loaded DIY speakers.   
Basis Audio Fans

What's with all the new colored vinyl?
I really dislike white LPs.  With my vision deficiency seeing the bands between tracks is virtually impossible.  
Ribbon Tweeters and Animal Hair
Back in the 1990s my wife had a bulimic cat, Cocoa.  Cocoa leaped on top of our Lexicon DC1 pre/pro and vomited through the vents onto a circuit board.  Repairs cost $450.00,  I have a pair of DIY Dynaudio towers, Myrages, with D76 three inch dom... 
Frustrated McIntosh Owner
I really prefer that audio discussions not be served with a side order of political arguments.  
Many higher end preamps are dated and ugly, why is this?
To me the epitome of a beautiful preamp is the MBL 6010D.
