Stuff You Tried To Love
Threshold Fet 10/e phono Audio Research SP-9, PH-1 and LS-2 Thiel 3.6 Classe CA-300 Rega Planar 3 I’m sure I could come up with many more but this is getting depressing.  
Best container to move prized records between homes? Thanks!
When I moved a year ago, I had to pack my 3000 records so they would survive two moves, first from our old house to a storage warehouse while our new house was being finished, and then 3 months later from the warehouse to the new house 160 mikes a... 
What Holiday Gifts did you ask for or Give to Yourself?
My wife gave me a pair of Western Electric capacitors made in 1934.  She’s the best!  
Cable elevators
@bdp24  Have you actually tried the Home Depot stand with your cables?  
Cable elevators
Each riser I have tried made the bass too lean and some of them introduced a glare in the treble.  The risers I tried were all household objects like wood blocks, cardboard tubes, 3 sticks arranged like a teepee, foam, etc.  Maybe if I had spent $... 
Furutech FI-50 NCF (R) vs FI-28 (R) Differences?
@lorde73  i haven’t tried the FI-46.  Most of my connector trials were with Audio Note ISIS mains cable but I also used Ocellia Silver Reference cable.   Just to follow up on my earlier post, I have since then tried using ETI Legato Gold for bo... 
The best speaker cables you’ve had
Audio Note SPx has been my favorite for the past 5 years.  
Furutech FI-50 NCF (R) vs FI-28 (R) Differences?
I found the FI-28(r) to be too bright and too lean.  The FI-50 NCF is much better balanced tonally and is more detailed to boot.  However, I should add that after using FI-50 NCF connectors on all my cables for several years, I recently replaced t... 
All New Treehaus Audiolab Phantom Of Luxury Open-Baffle FIELD COIL Loudspeakers Review
I wanted to like the Treehaus system.  The designer has an interesting take on things audio, both speakers and electronics, and I liked the look of his gear.  Unfortunately, each time I heard the system, at the two CAF shows, I was very disappoint... 
The fascination of vintage hi-fi: A Look Back
Nice story @doyle3433.  I have heard an IPC horn setup, also mono, and it sounded great for sure.  I can understand your enthusiasm! Count me among the vintage fans.  My speakers have horns from the late 1940s, drivers from the 50s and 60s, and c... 
When someone tells you it's a $40,000 amp, does it sound better?
@ps  I must have watched the Ron Carter special at the same time you did.  An excellent presentation and it filled in some gaps for me.  It also prompted me to pull out a number of my CDs and LPs featuring Ron Carter and enjoy them all over again... 
Jantzen Wax Coil or Mundorf M-Coil CFC
I agree with @yuviarora —-crossover inductors make a massive difference in sound quality.  People like to swap caps but rarely do you hear comments about coil comparisons.  In my high efficiency speakers with 12db crossovers, I have tried quite a ... 
Adding a Herron VTSP 3A/360 Preamplifier to the system.
Congratulations Dan!  Your impulse purchase turned out well.  
Capital Audiofest, save thyself!
@fsonicsmith Your feelings about attending shows are clearly stated; fortunately other people myself included do enjoy going to shows like CAF. Where else can you sample so many different components in a short period of time and, if you are so inc... 
Best way to spend $1000 on used bookshelf speakers?
Dyna A25 or A35.  Still a huge bargain even after 50 years.
