Tubelike solid state: Ayre Vs Aleph
I'm loving my Pass Labs Aleph 4 (same as the 2's but in the dual monaural format). I added a great subwoofer and love the combination. I heartily recommend that approach.

Great service from Mark Levinson and Madrigal
Yes, I've had the same experience. By email or phone for tech help or sending in my amp for repair of a cracked binding post, I have gotten totally courteous fast service with no bs. Also, the little things like very good packaging, excellent manu... 
amp/preamp fit with Revel
I Have Revel Studios and Voice. I like my Pass Labs amp much better than the Levinson #331 I used to have for the Studios. I'm using a Proceed Amp2 bi-amped to the Voice, which sounds great.

MFSL Beatles CDs
I bought an "Italian MFSL" Beatles CD from someone one Ebay and returned it. It was a CD-R and I could not tell one bit of difference from the regular CD I already owned. Don't bother. 
Anyone tried a copy protected CD?
Did you read that taking a black magic marker to the garbage tracks (on the very beginning of the disk) eliminates the copy protection and allows a PC to read them just fine?

Subwoofer cable recommendations please?
I have been using a 10 meter Audioquest Ruby cable. I think you can get a pair of them for under $100.

John,If you are using a digital audio cable from your dvd player to the digital input of your HTS then you are using the dacs in your Processor. If you are using a pair (or more) of cables from the right and left audio out on the player, you are u... 
technical explanation for cable direction?
Viridian,Well, thankyou..... that certainly makes sense. I had not heard that. Thats sort of the same reason why bi-wiring sounds better (reverse current created by the rebound of the voice coil is best delt with at the output of the amp)

John,WHAT about your music playback? grainy highs or midrange? no bass or bloated bass? can't turn it up loud? distortion? box y sound?. Although I'm not a fan of Transparent cables, it sounds like you have chosen lots of highend cables and have s...
