Time for dedicated outlets!
Sir cleeds,If I may, the power company does not supply a ground wire.You only have three supply wires coming in from your utility/power company.2 are the supply wires...Positives...one for each half of a 200 amp service or whatever your home has. ... 
Time for dedicated outlets!
Yes, it is either 12-2 Romex or 10-2 Romex...."cleeds" is on it!You can debate which one to run for a 20 amp duplex outlet but what you have is a Black Positive conductor, a White Neutral conductor, and a Green Ground conductor. In the Service Pan... 
Time for dedicated outlets!
2 very important considerations for installing 2 dedicated 20 amp duplex AC outlets:1) Proper wire size for a 20 amp circuit is 12 gauge or possibly as large as 10 gauge...3 conductors. Be careful with anything over 12 gauge. 2) The 2 circuits mus... 
Hum sound ..is it me or is it you? LOUD hum in system
I completely understand your frustrations and believe that unless you expressly stated that your item could be returned then you are not obligated to do so. My understanding is that used equipment is as is with no return.Most importantly you have ... 
Ground Hum with Rega RP6, Exact and TT PSU.
Try this if you haven't already:Use 1 AC wall outlet receptacle for your entire system with the possible exception of your device with the wall wart ac plug. Just use a competent AC Strip.Next float the ground of your power amp and phono stage (us... 
Time for Two Ways !
Wilson-Benesch Vertex! Only 1 crossover for the tweeter and dual downward firing ports with zero noise. Awesome drivers in a phenomenal enclosure and integrated stands.They truly disappear and just give you the music! 
Amps from the 1980's -- What gear holds up sonically? Reliably?
Agree strongly with the Electron Kinetics Amps. All of the Eagle 2 series power amps are stable down to 2 ohms. They became the building platform for all of the mono amps that followed.I managed to purchase a pair of 11 prime mono blocks recently ... 
High mass vs Low Mass Turntables - Sound difference?
Good comparison but why limit your choice to either A or B?  These two approaches have taken their turntables to their scientific limit.  "audiotroy"  is on to it. Enter George Merrill/Robert Williams and the Merrill-Williams R.E.A.L. 101.2 Turnta... 
Speaker recommendation for married couple
If your budget will allow, try a pair of Wilson-Benesch Vertex Loudspeakers. No serious listening for about 200 hours of break-in.. Extremely revealing of your upstream components, but they absolutely disappear. Plus a very Hi Wife Acceptance Factor! 
Amps/Preamps for Rockport Aviors
In my opinion there are preamps that sound worse but none better than the Sutherland N-1.  Ron Sutherland incorporates his finest phono stage and line stage in a single chassis. Extreme build quality and works anywhere with any line voltage sans s... 
Time for a change. Need some Advice
genez.....is pretty much on point.  Near field listening is to often overlooked for achieving awesome sound in smaller acoustic spaces.I just completed a system doing just this very approach and the results are simply ridiculous!Using:Wilson-Benes... 
XLR interconnects
Experimentation with Single Ended RCA interconnects and XLR interconnects may prove enlightening.Many preamplifiers have no issue driving single ended interconnects for a fair distance.  My interconnects are 5' long and I have no issues. It can al... 
Please Critique my Setup and Recommend Upgrade(s)
You will be well served to evaluate some new loudspeakers keeping in mind the amount of space that they will have to fill.  It is really often underappreciated what your choice of preamplifier and amplifier(s) can have in a system. There can be a ...

Building an all analog system around Magnepan .7 for 4K and under
