When was the last time when serious new instrument was invented ?
All kinds of unique and interesting Eurorack modules coming out weekly.  
The new Coda S5.5 amplifier: It's a "Petite Beast"!
Interesting and thanks for the heads up. I can't remember the last time Coda did a show. If ever.

You're welcome, Fred. So glad it's all coming together for you so nicely. I can see that you work really hard at getting the best sound quality possible from your stereo.

@fthompson251 Thank you for the excellent review!  
EVS Music Purifiers - Amazed by how much improvement they make! Anyone else try them?
Thanks @audioman58 ​​​​@ricevs   
How much should I expect with a warranty issue from a large retailer/distributor?
From my personal experience, little to nothing if you are dealing with a Chinese manufacturer or distributor.  
Pads or Spikes?
+3 Townshend Podiums. I have them under my main speakers. Coupling speakers to the floor is one of many silly audiophile myths.

@audioman58 @ricevs Some solid state amps have zobel networks at the outputs. Can your devices interact negatively with amps of this type? Thanks. I have the Walker things (I was one of the first five Walker dealers in the US). If I have some tim...

looking to replace Fyne speaker jumper cable
If the OP's goal is neutrality, WireWorld would be my recommendation. Honestly, my old, beat up ears are no longer good enough to tell the difference between short jumpers. A long time ago, industry insiders determined that they could retire ear... 
Legacy Calibre - big soundstage - what other standmounts offer this?
Having had a pair of active Calibre monitors in my home for a few months, I can confirm what you heard. Very few speakers at that price point do that so well. Pretty sick bass response as well for a speaker of that size. The quality of the veneer ... 
What is preferred/best contact cleaner these days?
Thanks, Bob. I appreciate your detailed response and sharing the experience with your friends earlier. I understand completely. Might be worth a try one day. If equal or better than Q45T or even slightly less effective, many audiophiles would lov...
