dedicated outlet cost
also I've heard dedicated outlets separated by power and pre amp, or digital and analog? How should these be plugged in? Poweramp, preamp, cd player, dac. 
What tube amp for starting out?
Hybrid amps like Counterpoint with solid state output would require less care (biasing, tube life) compared to all- tube amps 
How hot should a McCormack DNA-225 get?
why doesn't dna225 have a soft start circuit? 
preamp to go with counterpoint amp
"SA" hybrid mosfet/tube amp. I agree it sounds veiled... I don't know if because of the age of the component.Would a change in preamp would help this? Or an upgrade 
Hard drive storage still need good cd player?
but using a hi quality dac converter like audioengr sells is expensive and doesn't save any money over a cd player. Also sonos and similar boxes tested haven't had noticeably lower jitter. 
Shutting off amp noise
No its a soft pop, like if you turn off the preamp before the amp.I think it could be my (loose) rca connectors, one of them created a buzzing noise when loose. 
squeezebox vs sonos
how do these sound compared to (your) cd transport + dac?

subwoofers or not for bookshelfs?
