Polk Audio LSi 15 - are these the REAL DEAL ???
Everything that has been said about these speakers here is true. Unfortunately for Polk, they never got the credit they deserve among the audiophile crowd. So while my Polk LSi 15 beat everything under the sun for 3x the price in my room, now that... 
Naim + Cardas
First time I hear that Cardas cables are bad for solid state amps. I use it in my mostly SS system to great results. Had Audioquest Kong Cobra and Rocket 88 and found a combination of Cardas Quadlink, Golden Reference and various flavors of Cardas...

VPI felt mat vs aftermarket
Thanks everyone for your feedback, I'm going to try VPI felt mat to start. Worst case, I'll use it as a dust cover :) @tablejockey , I tried using VPIs stainless steel screw down clamp with rubber gasket, but I don't find it performing any better... 
VPI felt mat vs aftermarket
Thanks for all good advice. Worth noting that my VPI Classic Companion comes with gimbal tonearm so stability is not an issue as with their unipoint arms. I use HRX weight, not clamp, for ease of use. @drrsutliff never heard of this Origin Live m... 
The Mood Was Ruined
Sounds like Technics auto lift triggered sooner than this particular record ended. I believe Technics allows adjusting when auto lift is triggered.    Personally, I like the idea of auto lift feature very much. It saves those expensive cartridges... 
Under my tower speakers -- Isoacoustics Gaia, other options?
What isolation device do you recommend for speakers on carpet over suspended floor that allow for easy repositioning? I’ve looked at GAIA feet but am not crazy about prospect of having to stack them on top of the required carpet disks.   
Rega RP10 vs. VPI Classic Signature
Slaw, why not?  
Sota Eclipse packages for VPI tables.
