Measurements for a dedicated line
So when I came home yesterday evening my Kaiweets Outlet Tester I ordered from Amazon was waiting(love their next-day delivery) for me and couldn’t wait to try it. I’ll be dropping it off at Whole Foods today as it measured an astonishing 17 volts...

@rvpiano If you have not seen this video, it might be worth your time:    
Humminguru record cleaner
@daveyf  "The ’Guru’ is an excellent machine, However, it does benefit greatly from having a surfactant added to the water ( as do all US machines). Without a surfactant and DS, I found the machine to clean ok, but there was still a certain amount... 
Beatles CD box set
I just inherited the Beatles Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band Anniversary Edition 6 Disc Super Deluxe.  It's been sitting in the trunk of our car with other stuff collected. I noticed that the hard bound book was still wrapped.  Typically I'm... 
Look at these beauties
Tacky.  Looks like something you would find in Trump's New York apartment.  
Maggies and subwoofer integration
Check out Mike Powell's site, "The OCD Guy".  He seems in touch with matching subwoofers to planar's.  With Quads, I have never heard a subwoofer keep up with them.  
Old phones as streaming sources
I have an S21 with half a terabyte of memory and I put most of my CD's in it as WAV files. Plug that into a Mojo and headphones into that and it makes for a nice little setup.  Sometimes I use it in the car system.  
Does a turntable mat make any difference?
Yes, they do and you can forget about any specific recommendation from this thread unless they have your turntable, maybe arm combination.  There are simply too many variables.  
Did your system getting better the more money you spent or more experience you gained?
More money was the answer.  I knew what I wanted sonically and tried to do it on a lesser budget and it was fine but didn't have that certain something I was looking for.  Now it sings and waxes poetic to me and I am happy with it.  
Speaker Spikes - Working Principle
@kraftwerkturbo Really?  You thought I meant that a tweeters motion is moving the cabinet.  I reread your question and my response and I suppose that I should have said that the bass drivers in the speaker cabinet would cause a slight motion, enou... 
What to do with dead equipment
Sell it for whatever you can get for it. It just seems like a shame to throw out something like that. If you were attempting a repair one more time, I’d recommend Stereo Rehab here in Chicago. If it is repairable, Casper(proprietor) will repair it... 
A Few Nice Words For Upscale Audio
Now that's great service and October 23 is my birthday.  That must have been the reason.  
Why do I prefer R2R over Chip based DAC's?
Maybe the fact that some of the best DACs/players deal with the signal in an (almost ?) pure discrete fashion rather than purely in chips/chipsets. R-2R DAC’s can be designed in silicon but there are discrete component designs. Some like in the Es... 
Why do I prefer R2R over Chip based DAC's?
@czarivey  Technically not R2R, but R-2R.  Rather than me fumbling through typing a treatise on R-2R DACs, maybe this fairly simple to read article can help: https://www.electronics-tutorials.ws/combination/r-2r-dac.html    
Ken Fritz article
@decooney “Nobody wanted to come to our house, because he wanted to put them to work,” said his daughter Patty, 58. “I think we went camping twice, never took vacation. It was just work, work, work.”      One's passion is another one's hell. ​​​...
