What is your favorite album cover?
Sgt. Pepper.As a 10 yr. old when the LP hit the stores, I sensed that the music inside was something special purely on the strength of the art I saw on the cover.  Didn’t score a copy until I was 13 at which time my suspicions were confirmed. 
Why do we want to distortions?
No doubt when cavemen first beat rhythms on sun bleached mammoth skulls there were rocks and trees lamenting that the sounds-Nature-intended were being distorted for somebody’s subjective euphonic purposes. 
Recommendations Please: Bookshelf Speakers no Larger than 7"x12"x8"
You might want to see if Best Buy still carries Polk T-15 bookshelves.  They’re 7”w x 10.5” h x 7.5” d.  Definitely not the pinnacle of high performance.....I found them to punch well above their weight though and enjoyed listening to a pair of th...

What do you have on order RIGHT NOW.
Loki mini +USPS says it’ll be here this weekend. As Richard Pryor once said, “We will see what we will see.”... 
Tinnitus sufferer: is it the speakers or the 24bits/192kHz
I stream Tidal and also play LPs.  On some of the digital (and it is present for me with some of their “Masters” offerings as well as a small number of “CD” songs that sound very good otherwise)), I hear a different kind of ringing than what is th... 
How Do You Store Your Record Collection? Recommendations Please!

Do you ever miss vintage gear you no longer have?
I miss tape now and then.  Had a Teac reel to reel (X-7R) and an A-450, top loader cassette deck.  The rituals of threading the reels/setting the levels, etc., were “appealing” in retrospect...quaint.  They sounded good, no denying it, particularl... 
Using Different Power Tube Types Simultaneously (PrimaLuna)
Thanks, all!Original, PL EL 34 quad is back up and running.  After living with the KT 77s for 10 months.....well, yeah,...I do like the ‘77s better but there are aspects of these EL 34s that are tough to beat.  Going to try a quad of the Mullard r... 
Using Different Power Tube Types Simultaneously (PrimaLuna)
“...One of those you can...buy(t?) why?......”Thanks, tablejockey.......I think I’ve verified that the #3 (going left to right from the front of the amp) KT 77 was the culprit and I’ve replaced it with a stock, PL EL 34.  Are you saying I might ge... 
Using Different Power Tube Types Simultaneously (PrimaLuna)
Thanks, jjss49.  It does seem like this was in a PL ad at some point but, at my age and distant-but-intense history with mind-altering chemicals, I have to question if I saw it or dreamt it.  Good info which I’ll now write in felt-tipped-marker on... 
1 song you never get sick of?
“Revolution” by The Beatles...the version that debuted on the B side of the “Hey Jude” 45 rpm single.  Not the track from “The White Album”.  Definitely not the last word in SQ from an audiophile standpoint. Nonetheless, it never fails me as a sor... 
Tube Novice Encounters First Hiccup
Apologies...spell check. 😖 
Tube Novice Encounters First Hiccup
It’s difficult for me to tell, Cleese...I should probably make more of an effort to document tube-hours than I have up to this point.  I got these KT 77s about March or April of last year.  There may have been the occasional, day long listening se...
