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.  
Extra sets of Cables to switch up system?
I keep a couple of different sets of cables. I'm happy with what's in there, but every once in a while, or if I get a new piece of gear, I'll swap things around. Usually I end up exactly where I am currently am, but it's nice to hear the differenc...

Stereophile review of the $30,000 tekton speakers
So much Tekton hate on here. It's unfortunate. I own a pair, btw....They're well worth the cost, but in the end, I outgrew them and moved on. I certainly think they're worth their asking price. I just chose to go in a different sonic direction.   
Stereophile review of the $30,000 tekton speakers
Everyone has a certain sound signature that they prefer. If you prefer Tekton's sound, go for it. If you prefer to purchase a speaker based on a Stereophile review, that's your choice as well.  
The Psychology of Constant (Equipment) Change
I've been pretty happy for about a year with my current system. Took a lot of experimentation to get there, though.  
At what point do you...
I buy used/open box/refurbished when it's about 50% or more off retail. Case in point: I bought a Yamaha CDS2100 for $1499 refurbished with a 3 year warranty from a reputable online shop.  
Are there other people like me ? Amazed by their low cost system :)
Dude, you must really think you're important. You're not. STFU already. It's beyond obnoxious.

@classicrockfan , maybe this isn't the forum for you. ASR is always looking for new talent.   
Older Power Cables
You're going to have to try some new cables to find out. I like SR's stuff, but have had good results with the higher-end GR power cables, too. (The GR cable took FOREVER to break in, so bear that in mind...).    
The molecular level explanation of "cable burn-in"
I can't explain it, therefore it cannot exist.   *Yawn*

  blah blah blah. Buy what you want. Enjoy what you have.    
Do you trust your ears more than measurements?
I use my ears, 100%. Every once in a while, I get the bug to change some settings, adjust some parameters, that sort of thing... Invariably, I tune it back to where it was (or very, very close, anyway). That leads me to believe I’m pretty much ... 
Change Revel BE driver color to black?
@ronboco  No, lol.....and I did find a Be tweeter that is not enclosed in a "cage", so I stand corrected. https://www.madisoundspeakerstore.com/beryllium-dome-tweeters/satori-tw29bnwg-4-beryllium-dome-tweeter-with-waveguide/   That being ... 
vibration control - cd player
That's a higher-end spinner, so I have to believe Hegel put some thought into the feet. That being said, they're probably also assuming it's going to go into a real audio rack, which would at least help with vibration dampening. I've used Iso-pod ...
