New- HiFi ROSE RS130 Ultimate Network Transport
I upgraded from an Innuos Zenith mk2 and Phoenix USB to the Rose 130. The Innuos has a bottom up sound while the 130 is more neutral. One thing that stands out is the 130 does a great job with imaging.¬†  
My First OverHead Projector
I've had good luck with a couple different Epsons and JVC models, all 3k and below when I purchased them. I use them on a 110" screen in an 18x 30 room. A lot of specs are tricky because there's no true standard, so depend on reviews. Projectorcen... 
Room Correction Required
The Swarm sub array - or using different subs as described above - will work wonders. Everyone thinks of subs as 40hz and lower and pounding out bass like a concert but really having them cut off at 70 or 80hz and dialed in prudently will work rea...

Axpona
I've been to Axpona a few times and really enjoyed it. The trick is to make a plan as there are a ton of rooms and people. Go online, determine what rooms are your "must-hear" rooms, and then you can make sure to spend time there. BTW - I have ha... 
Survey on Cost of Loudspeakers Supported On Townshend Seismic Isolation Podiums
I have Legacy Aeris speakers on the podiums and thought the improvements were worth the expense. Better imaging, more space around the notes, and also eliminated some resonance. Let your ears decide what is best for you and your room!  
Benefits of better cables with limitation of basic speaker wire in wall
I have the same experience as akg - the inwall wire is definitely a chokepoint. There can be creative options to address it. Audio Advisor terminates many of the cables they sell, and hence they can sell almost anything in bulk footage. The wall p... 
Will An Anthem AV Receiver Benefit From An Aftermarket Power Cable
My ears and trials say there will be differences and it will be up to you to determine if you like the differences. I have tried different cords on my Marantz 8802 preamp and a Cardas cord sounded different then an Elrod cord than an AQ cord vs a ... 
Suggest your most desired MSRP $1,500-$3,000 Stand Mount for a Shootout.
I really recommend the Dynaudio Confidence C1's in that price range (used). They are unbelievably dynamic and musical and in the right setup, you would be fooled into thinking they were decent sized floor standers. They like power so amp matching ... 
Svs, Rel, or ?.
I've heard a pair of SVS 2000s and wasn't terribly impressed, but admittedly the room wasn't great. I am a proponent of multiple subs (I have the SWARM) but have heard REL and Seaton Audio subs and think that all three of those are faster and more... 
Why spend more than $25 per piece of equipment on vibration reduction?
I have to agree with stuartk - there are multiple types of products that all make some sort of impact. That impact will vary based on the equipment, the foundation the equipment sits on, and your ears. Like stuartk, I have tried multiple products ... 
Placement of Single Subwoofer Affecting Sound of Main Speakers
With the long transmission wave bottom octaves produce, sub placement is a tricky thing to do well depending on the room. Experiment multiple places and go with 1. what sounds best 2. has WAF 3. doesn't degrade from the main speakers. Two or more... 
Gryphon Essence Stereo vs Pass Labs XA series
Hi Jeff - I had a 160.8 and it was a really nice amp - great tone, musical (meaning not artificially boosted bass or treble) - but compared to a pair of JC1s and a Gryphon Diablo 300, it didn't have the same drive or gusto with complex music or lo... 
Big Below 15k used that can play loud as heck
2nd the vote for large Legacy speakers. I have a pair of Aeris and they are the first speakers that come close to providing the same feeling I used to get when I was involved with SPL car audio competition. Good luck!  
Short list of musical subwoofers
I've heard both and think the REL are just better overall - faster, more dynamic, yet call less attention to themselves. FWIW, I would recommend getting at least two subs and place them carefully. The more points you pressurize the room with the b...
