Cable "burning": Real or VooDoo ???
There was a post (forget which thread) and the individual described a method for making a cheap SE resistance cable break-in device. Half watt, 10K ohm resistor and an RCA plug. Sounded like a reasonable approach. Does anyone know of any similar c... 
Sound deadening material behind painting
Wow ... you guys can afford this hobby AND paintings with real paint? The only ones that I own with paint on them are the felt Elvis ones. Not bad for attenuating highs, though. I gotta get a better job. 
Amp Hum
Sailor, contrary to the above post, don't give up the ship yet! Is the hum from the amp chassis or the speakers? Is the hum constant, or intermittent? Is it source dependent?

And boy, oh boy ... making gravy has never been more fun. 
California electrical shortage audio

Hum and Hiss from Sonic Frontier Preamp
My Line 3 exhibits a slight hiss, which is completely inaudible except when listening directly at a speaker with no music playing. I am relatively new to the tubed world, but I do not believe this issue to be uncommon, as I have heard it from othe...

Best crossover frequency when bi-amp
Ryllau, JBL maintains a pretty good database of vintage equipment at their website. I wouldn't discount doing some wandering about to see if you find something there. You may even try contacting them with a digital photo attached. Worth a shot. 
Coaxial or Optical
Oh no ... I think you're opening the "thread from hell" asking about how much to spend on interconnects, Pablo. With no intent to sound rude, I really suggest you search out the archives here and read up. At the very least, you'll get a feeling fo...
