If A.I. took the place of musicians, would you listen to it?
I would listen to some but only out of curiosity and then I would be done. There is way more human created music than I’ll ever be able to listen to. I don’t want to waste my time or spend money to support the AI created music industry. As a music... 
Innuos Zen Mk3 Voltage Switch
Thank you. I had looked all over the internet and, finally, found this switch image this morning. Looks like a simple procedure.  
Noir album recommendations
@windywoodworker Thanks for the post. Just what I was looking for but didn’t know it until I saw it.  
SVS Subwoofer Connection
Thanks @yogiboy @jastralfu    I’m actually trying to help a friend with his system on this issue and based on a conversation with a very knowledgeable Magnepan dude, the answer is to run to the Maggie’s first and then jump to the subs.

The reason for this is to avoid another long and tedious speaker wire run. or a long, tedious line cable run.  
How Much Do Aesthetics Factor Into Your Decisions?
Maybe did so in the 70’s. Maybe once in the 80’s when needing WAF. Doesn’t occur to me now at all. I mostly listen with my eyes closed.   
"But it sounds better at night...."
It’s your mood 98%. 2% of the other stuff.  At least for me. 59 years of experience starting with a tiny transistor radio and now into mono blocks and Magnepans.  
Female vocalist recommendations

@elliottbnewcombjr  Would you mind explaining how you built your Cat8 cables? I would like to try it. Thanks.   
Help with hiss
You said that your amps are plugged directly into the wall outlet.  What else is on that circuit? Have you tried unplugging everything else that's on that circuit. I installed two dedicated circuits for my gear. One is used for the power amps and... 
Warmer class D amps for magnepan?
I have used the class D, PS Audio Stellar M700 mono blocks with the LRS for two years now. Never a problem driving the speakers. They sound fantastic.  I listen to Jazz, Classical, Classic Rock, Female Vocalists and lots of acoustic stuff. The M7... 
PS Audio M700 or M1200 low frequency bass
I am using the PS Audio M700s to drive Magnepan LRS speakers which are nominal 4 ohm and 86 db sensitivity.  They aren't known for bass but the M700s are able to derive every bit of low end that those little speakers can muster.  
Who else can't sleep the night before their fancy new gears arrive?
No, I don’t anticipate the delivery. I’m very analytical about things. It comes, it gets tried and if it’s not everything I imagined it would be it gets kicked to the curb. Then it’s back to the hunt which is much more fulfilling.  
Old days & steamers vs newer stuff?
