Suggested Power Cable for Streamer
I would look at Voodoo cables. They have digital specific cables that make an audible difference. The Cable Company has some on sale and you can try them before you buy them .  
Tekton speaker comparison thread
@passthedutchie I live in what is referred to as Central Maine even though geographically it really isbsouthern Maine. Our house is on a hillside overlooking Sebago Lake which is 45 minutes northwest of Portland. We love company if you want to vis... 
Easy Come Easy Go…….BOOM!
Wow what a disaster. Sorry for your loss. When we built our house on a hillside 7 years ago I had a whole house surge protector installed .  
What would you do?
I agree with the majority in that a tube preamp is the way to go. Even when I had good solid state amps the first time I tried a good preamp I was hooked.   
Will audio gear be ok in unheated house
I have wrestled with this issue also. It is a pain in the neck bringing gear back and forth. Like you, I am mostly concerned about theft. What you plan to do sounds good and going forward I may try it. I swear my integrated tube amp gains 5 pounds... 
What was the best (most impactful) piece of new equipment to hit the market in 2023?
@deep_333 BACCH has been around for awhile but u- BACCH was introduced this year. I purchased it at the introductory price. @scottwheel thanks for the update. Head tracking for two listeners would be great especially if it would work with Windows.  
What was the best (most impactful) piece of new equipment to hit the market in 2023?
@scottwheel u-BACCH doesn’t have head tracking which is one of the reasons it is a lot less expensive than BACCH. Tell me about side by side seating ?

@mahgister Thanks and I hope you and your family have a great holiday season. I would love to hear your impressions of the software.  
What was the best (most impactful) piece of new equipment to hit the market in 2023?
@mahgister I was interested in the BACCH system since it’s introduction but not only is it expensive it is MAC based. I did not want to take a backwards step in my system and go back to a laptop. I have a Windows based Wolf Audio streamer/server f... 
What was the best (most impactful) piece of new equipment to hit the market in 2023?
For me it wasn't a piece of equipment but rather software. I have been interested in the BACCH system for some time but I had no interest in inserting a MAC computer into my system. Their introduction of u-BACCH software for Windows corrected that... 
Sound Stage and Imaging
@kraftwerkturbo The Mini Lores don’t have the tweeter array that really makes the Tekton speakers a great value for your money.  
Sound Stage and Imaging
Tekton Design is within your budget and will provide the sound quality you are looking for. Today’s listings include a pair off Double Impacts for $1,900. There is a lot of positive reviews online for these speakers.

Thanks for posting this. Too often the negative is posted and not the positive. Hopefully more members will come forward with positive experiences.   
If Cardas Clear Beyond and Shunyata Sigma V2 speaker cables had a child ....it would be ?
I had the Cardas Clear Beyond which were replaced by the Shunyata Sigma V2. The Cardas are as the poster described as are the Shunyata. I like both and if I had SS amplification I would go with the Cardas whereas for tubes which I have the Shunyat... 
How long does it take your tube amp to warm up?
I have a pair of Cary 211FE amps which take an hour to an hour and a half to reach  what I call the Golden Zone. If right from the start I push them hard an hour but if I have company I like to slowly build up the volume so it will be about an hou...
