Records not stored vertically for decades
Just play the LPS. If it sounds ok, it is ok. So simple, just ply!.  LPs are not the best audio format, so I do not spend any extra energy with the LPs. Maybe, somebody, emotionally, thinks the LPs very valuable. But, not me, though I do have >... 
Preamp - what's the purpose?
there was once a description of sound. American sound and British sound. am. sound = big scale, br. sound = detailed. americans like exaggerated sound such as boomy, more bass. this is not true to the original music.  cooked fish with no sauce... 
Upgraded my cables and they transformed my system!!!
not angry. simply because we don need to support any manufacturers who sell over-priced products!  
Selling here on Audiogon
if you think the listed prices are not reasonable, do not buy them. then, the dealers' items will expire.  then, listed again, expired, ... this is one of the ways to make prices reasonable.  
Upgraded my cables and they transformed my system!!!
everybody is talking about unnecessarily expensive cables without scientific data/proof. all audio components are made of signal transfer lines (also kind of cables) internally. so, why not changing/upgrading the internal cables? DO NOT WASTE A... 
Experiences With Costly Balanced XLR Interconnects Above $3,000
I am very happy to find there is a person who is really sensibly correct. The person is "rtorchia". I wish everybody should be like him! Therefore, unnecessarily-expensive audio components will be perished from the Earth!  
DAC as pre amp
input impedance: preamp = usually 47k                         power amp = >20k  inexpensive cd player output = 100 - 200 direct connection (cd + power amp) 200 ohm/ 20k ohm = 1/100  no meaningful signal loss @ low and high frequency regions... 
DAC as pre amp
carlsbad2 = this man said it absolutely right. pre-amp = long time ago, when only phono signal was only a source (with am, fm radios), the signal was too weak, so pre-amplification was needed before any power amp. no more we need the pre. b/c an... 
power cable
Basic cables with good shield and copper thickness (also basic prices, e.g. $20 -30 per cable) are NOT WORSE than $1,000/cable! Let's think the cable as water pipe at home. Do you think 100% pure real gold pipe can give you exotic water, which ca... 
power cable
Unless current power cables are of poor quality (e.g. very thin, or noise-prone), you will not hear any difference. That's true based on physics. However, the new cable may give you better sound based on imperfect human-being nature, which tends t... 
USB Cable
Please, do not spend high $ for the USB cable. Well-made basic, cheap works same as expensive ones!  
Vinyl Lovers
To vinyl record lovers: I think most of the vinyl lovers tend to like original music sound WITH a little distorted sound by record playing and some noise also by record playing. CD playing is much better in terms of high fidelity of original musi... 
Cable elevators
I do not believe "cable-off-carpet" makes any sonic change unless power lines are under the carpet.   I tried many times, and found nothing improved. My speaker = Vienna Mahler (period).  
The Best Preamp is no Preamp?
To ghdprentice: My system is as follows. CD player   Musical Fidelity A3.2 CD (made in 2003 in England) Turn table   Sansui SR 929 (Denon DL-103R) Preamp      Onkyo Integra P304 (ca. 33 years old, Japan) Power amp  Yamaha MX-1 (old, old, 200 ... 
The Best Preamp is no Preamp?
I removed my preamp, and inserted a volume control. The sound became really better, more clarity. Some people said the increased clarity is something ANALYTICAL. Totally non-sense! So-so grade preamp just simply makes audio signal a little bit dul...
