Just a heads-up - The Mobile Fidelity KOB SACD has been released. Was it worth the wait? Well, I don’t know... I pre-ordered it in 2011 and that’s a long time to me. Qualitywise and subjectively speaking, it might be a little on the polite side co... 
Any San Francisco area Vapor owners?

Stillpoints ERS cloth for EMI/RFI
My experience parallels those of Geofkait and Tubegroover. This stuff is like Cilantro - you have to get the proportion just right. I actually wound up cutting the sheets into very small strips and dots - nothing bigger than a half inch square. I ...

New on audiogon
Welcome Acidfolk. That’s very nice equipment you bought. That being said, if you had come to us sooner, I‘m pretty sure that you would have been strongly advised to make speakers your first priority; not the amp and source. However, moving forward... 
Oldest piece of gear you own
I have a conrad johnson Premier V that I’m not currently using. But I’m having a hard time letting go. 
Which tubes?
Highrolller,Please disregard my smart-ass response to what I thought was a ridiculously brief inquiry. I didn’t realize that it was a follow-up to a much more appropriate post that nobody answered. I recommend giving Andy at Vintage Tube Services ...

Rating system insanity
Itsalldark, You’ve been a member since 2001 and have initiated 38 threads - each one, a request for help or personal advise. You would think that the significant number of members who responded to this thread, asking for your help, would at least... 
I can only hope that my system (and disposable income) continues to rise to the type of audio zenith required in order for me to justify allocating the next audio dollar for these cables. 
How do you judge your system's neutrality?
I think we’ve found the next big audio tweak - The adjustable, micro calibrated head clamp.
