Powered Minimus 7 substitute
Minimum 7's...blast from the past. I had a pair of Maximus 7's. In the walbut fibish, no less.    
Full loom of the same cable brand vs mixing and matching.
I TRY to use the same brand (I've pretty much settled on SR), but it doesn't always work out that way. The way I figure it, the cables were designed and engineered in their lab/equipment space using the other cabling from their own brand, so it s... 
Synergistic Purple Fuse - Aftet 1 Year of Use
I recently tried the exact same experiment, throwing a couple of Orange fuses in the mix, just to make things more complicated, lol. So, I "re-tried" Purples vs Oranges vs Stock fuses. I found I preferred the Purple in my pre-amp (and it wasn’t ... 
I did the right thing after all.
Well, you have to please you. I don’t care what anybody else thinks of my gear, it works for me (and sounds great). I also owned (and still do) a pair of Tektons. Also like you, I sort of "outgrew them" (I have a pair of Enzo XLs with Be tweete... 
An ANSWER....of sorts......
Um......wut?   Maybe it's both.....?  
Stereophile review of the $30,000 tekton speakers
@rvito , I'm pretty sure you can get Tektons in almost any finish you like. Including real wood veneer. Of course, that costs more, but......it's available. At least I'm pretty sure it used to be, anyway.    
Music first or sound first?
For me, no matter what, it's the music that matters. It has to move me.  
No discussion about the Synergistic Pink fuse?
@secretguy , So because it didn't improve your system, it can't possibly work for anyone else? Huh. Honestly, an audiophile fuse in my preamp was one of my best/cheapest upgrades.  
No discussion about the Synergistic Pink fuse?
@wolf_garcia , well, at least you've tried one. I'm curious how many naysayers in this thread have actually TRIED an audiophile grade fuse. Probably in the neighborhood of 10%, I'd guess. I do find it interesting that some people (myself include...

ASR....lol. Right.

Use your ears.  
No discussion about the Synergistic Pink fuse?
I have (and swear by) SR fuses. I currently use Purples and Oranges in almost all my components. I've not heard the new Pink one, though. That being said, I would imagine the higher end your equipment, the better match the more expensive models ... 
Stereophile review of the $30,000 tekton speakers
@laoman  Lots of people have purchased them. I have a pair of Enzo XL's (though they are currently in storage). I purchased them because I wanted a custom color (in my case, "Frog Green"), the unique design, the price and the front ports on the s... 
Speakers, speaker cables or I’m getting old…
@rolox , +1. It does get old after awhile, doesn't it?  In any event,  @toddcowles , give the new cables a shot and see where it gets you. You'll probably be pleasantly surprised.    
Speakers, speaker cables or I’m getting old…
The audio chain is only as strong as its' weakest link. While I wouldn't say cables are a tone control, they certainly have a bearing on the overall projected sound. If you have nice gear, crappy cables can stand out like a sore thumb.
