Transitioning from Tubes back to SS
Your Cary amp will sound totally different after 100-150 hours on it. SS gear takes even longer. 
Any Derek Trucks Band fans?

Opinions on Full-Range/single driver speakers
"So your opinions are appreciated. I would prefer if you did not advise me to purchase your favorite speaker as that is not the type of information I am seeking."Just how do you expect a bunch of opinionated audiophiles to give you an opinion! Wha... 
Cayin A88T - My Favorite Amp Out of Numerous - FYI
" At present, I like it so much that it may be my last amp also."Famous last words! LOL 
Wither Jimmy Page?
It's not about their age. It's more about their bank account. When your rich your not near as hungry and just don't care as much any more.

Cary SLAM 100 vs. Manley Snapper

I Changed the rig again
An Additive to my OP. The dynamics are much more evident. I'm just pushed back in my chair. It's amazing that 9 watts with the proper speaker can make you more on the edge of your seat 
Review: Elrod Power Systems Gold Statement Power Cord Power cord
Wow! It would take $46,200.00 to make my rig a full Elrod cable system. My system(excluding cables and power conditioning)at full retail was only about $40K! My 08 BMW M3 was only 70,000.00. I think I'll enjoy my Bimmer some more! It's hard for th...
