I use a Mclntosh MQ112 Environmental Equalizer to fix some recordings. Just what the doctor ordered. Love it.

Equalizer in a Hi Fi system

Amp — Leave on or turn off
I had a Krell FPB 600 amp that I always left in the standby mode until I powered it up to listen. Was doing that for years and years. Then I have now the ARC Ref 750s. And I always let them warm up about 1 hour before listening. Happy listening.

Help me pick some new or used speaker cables

I had a Krell FPB 600 hooked up to an ARC Ref 6 SE. I then upgraded my Krell to the ARC Ref 750s. Huge difference in sound stage. Soundstage definitely comes from the amp imo.

"Happy To Be Stuck With You!!!"
That is the same way I feel about my B&W 800 Matrix. I’ve  fell in love with the looks alone when they first came out in the early 90s when they were in the cover of Stereophe. Said to my self one day I will buy them. Bought them finally in 20... 
Yes, cables do make a difference -- regardless of price...
I too am a firm believer in cables. I have a very revealing system to begin with and for me it’s easy to hear good and bad or improvements within my system. First off I had for many years all Shunyata Sigma HC and Digital PCs for my sources and Ki... 
Power cords different lengths.
@ozzy Thank you for the info. Because for my ARC Ref 9 CDP is the newer unbraided source version 15a . And for the ARC Ref 6SE is the older Braided source 20a. Also the HC 2m 20a for one of my ARC Ref 750 is the unbraided . So what ever I can fin...
