Should Amps be plugged into a power conditioner?
Hi to all,  I had the same concern about plugging amps into the wall. I decided to write to Andy at Synergistic Research and this was my response. Almost all power conditioners limit current, which is why you hear recommendations to plug the ...

Speaker Cables : Moderate priced
I agree with yyzsantabarbara ,if you can find on the net used Audience Frontrow, they truly are impressive cables. They sound warm,detailed and very live ,true to the ears experience.    
Advice needed: It's time for a new DAC
The DAC204 and DAC205 are relatively affordable options to Weiss Engineering’s higher-grade units such as the DAC501 and the HELIOS. They do not have the onboard digital processing capabilities of those units, nor do they include headphone outputs...
