A stupid question(s) about power cords
Yes, Preffair, but a 10 gauge cable. Can get it with plastic shells or aluminum shells. Google : Amazon - Preffair Audio. You should be at their main page. Down on the right side, top right power cable. The one I am recommending has aluminum barre... 
A stupid question(s) about power cords
OP, if you have not purchased a power cable yet....do this. Amazon/Ebay : Preffair Audio : Power Cable :  Amazing for the money < $50. Have questions about these, let me know. I have recommended these to many of my colleagues and all claim they... 
A stupid question(s) about power cords
Do not worry about it. Buy a cable, use it, break it in, and report back.   
Coda #8, Pass XA25, or Schiit Tyr to replace PS Audio M700
OP, the XA25 is not bridgeable, as an fyi. A pair can be used to horizontally / vertically passive bi amp, or actively bi amp through an electronic crossover. Do you have the 1+1s in a room with low ceiling height. The problem can be the speakers ... 
Could Class D really be that good?
I am with ricevs. As I do with many pieces and doing it for over 50 years, I finally got around to chassis damping my LSA GAN 350, including changing out the stock rubber feet. What I hear now vs stock, are cleaner, faster and more agile sounding ... 
New expensive power cord for amp and no change in sound?
Play a few specific tracks that you know well, understand what you are listening to, and then do as dill suggested. Power cord differences are very easy to hear through my system, used anywhere in the chain.   
Suggestions for power amps
LSA Discovery GAN 350. A completely different animal than the Warp 1. Not even close. Tried the Warp 1. Did nothing for me. I have the LSA 350 (along with a numerous collection of other great amps), and it is up there. Keep in mind, it did not mea... 
Best sounding FM table radio ever made...
I am here to 2nd (3rd actually) the Proton 300/301.    
Andrew Singer Of "Sound by Singer" passed away yesterday
RIP Andy Singer...the legend. Andy was an excellent businessman, and a BIG man. I rarely saw him smile but was always very professional. He offered to hire me at one point, as long as I brought with me my client list. I did buy a handful of items ... 
Music first or sound first?
I know many listeners who do not care much about the music, but do care about the reproduction of the music. This to me, is sad. Maybe I place music 1st because I was a singer in a choral group and a local band in my youth. I also took music class... 
Music first or sound first?
Music 1st, without a doubt. I can listen to and enjoy music anywhere, on any playing platform. I love music, 1st and foremost. When I listen to my system, the advantage here for me is that it creates a greater sense of I am there, or they are here... 
Is Ric Cummins still around?
What knowledge do you need ? change out components, value to value, unless the parts have no markings.  
Is Ric Cummins still around?
There is a pair of his Rosinante Evolution speakers on sale on USAM. Seller is located in FL.  
Some thoughts on ASR and the reviews
I indicated in my one post on this thread that I was done here. I do have a few things to add. I currently am down to 24 power amplifiers (from a collection of about 100). 2 of these 24 (not my particular samples), have measured poorly and have be... 
Measurement Bias
I have two amplifiers ( out of many ) that did not fare so well with Amir's testing, but I love listening to both of them. Enjoy ! MrD.
