Thiel CS 2.4 Amplifier Pairing
@jazzman7 , both Yamaha are 2ohm stable with no issues I believe. I just have not read any users with Yamaha amps on Thiel.  I would consider integrated but wasn't sure the power would be suffice.  Japanese usually don't carry the heft in sound li...

Outlaw 2160 is at a good price point at $600-$700  
How do you stop house guest from damaging your speakers?
Tough question to answer. Keep the EQ out of site.

I owmed it for a year. Very good pre-amp for the price, sound is warm and engaging.  Itubes get really hot along with the machine as others said.  If you plan to tube roll, the socket might be pulled or potential.damage to the sockets.  Its defina... 
Why do Tube Amps sound more romantic v SS amps
Tube amps to.me.sound more holographic. I prefer SS more.  
To pricey
I have 803 Nautilus for quite some time now, upgrading to the D verions with the Diamond Tweeter should be better for sure, but it will come at a cost.  I've found the B&W sound to be warm and netrual and not bright sounding.  They are very de... 
When someone tells you it's a $40,000 amp, does it sound better?
it all depends who you ask?  to a wealthy person, $40k will not mean much to someone.  to a middle class indvidual, he may be able to afford it, but wil rationalize and think what the $40k can do for himself and his family.   now for the question... 
NAD M23 Stereo Amplifier: Best Amp Ever Bench Tested?!?
Always have a soft spot for NAD, equipment brings good dynamics.  They make my speakers sound lively.

Ideal power cord lengths?
3-4 meters is suffice for me.

What is your take on high efficient speakers vs. low efficient speakers?
High efficiency requires low power amp, while low efficiency requires high power amp. The majority stand mount speakers need 150wpc to sound its best.  
For those of you who had spent over hundred thousand dollars for your sound system.
Its a psychological effect.  People will not feel good on a $300 pre amp or $2000 amplifier.  Let alone a $5000 pair of speakers.  If people hv the money, $100k means nothing to them.  I've enjoyed my system and enjoy the hobby.  I always have the... 
OMG. What now?
There is always something better in this hobby.  People are more involved listening to their equipment then music itself.  Its the want and try factor, a system can start at 2k, 5k, 10k, 20k, 50k, 100k.  How much difference all depends on everyone...
