First amendment ONLY applies to the government trying to limit free speech. Listen to the lawyer who spoke earlier. This has absolutely nothing to do with the First Amendment right to free speech.

Ebay selling my missing amplifier
8 months ago I sent an amplifier to europe for upgrades. The amp went missing and there were investigations that went unresolved. What does "unresolved" mean? After 8 months if it was lost you should have been paid by now. Did you ship a $50,0... 
Do you belong more to souce first or to speakers first school of thought ?
so many here have completely ignored the question. It was NOT what is most important, it was what should come first. Nothing is "most important" because it is a SYSTEM. It is the weakest link idea. The SYSTEM can be no better than the weakest lin...

Aurender n200, talk me out of signing on the dotted line
Late to the thread so didn't read it all. You said Spotify and internet radio which are both lossy, compressed sources. It is a fool's errand to think that any streamer is going to turn them into something they are not Save your $6000 and subscri...

Example of a piece o’ crap, useless review
I read (skim through) reviews to see what music they are using to evaluate a system. Found some good stuff that way. Not much use for them otherwise.  
Turntable Isolation
Magnetic levitation is the way to go. Not that difficult to setup nowadays; the new ultra strong magnets are not that expensive. Then just a couple steel plates and you are in business. A little foam or something on the sides to keep the suspens...
