The comment of religion is not to be taken literally. Nobody is here to discuss that, it is merely a point of belief and the strength of one's beliefs. Again, your comments of system quality is to assume that those who don't agree with you have lessor systems, or poor systems. As for me, my current...

You know - a couple of you have come down on those who say "none". Like it is some big attempt to create chaos. If the OP did not want to hear from any of those people - there would not have been a option to pick none. Second, there is absolutely no proof that those who discretain a diffe...

At the risk of igniting a can of napalm.. I voted "digital".. however, I will explain. I wholeheartedly believe that a system approach is the most balanced approach to cables, ergo.. follow the signal, if you don't get it at the start, no amount of loving is going to coax it downstream. S...

Why not just put "none"? Why add the crap about "hype"? It isn't necessary. If people didn't hear the difference, then that's all there is to say. We don't care Trolls and their prejudices. Maybe some people can't hear the difference, because their system doesn't allow them to h...

Electronics warm-up time is not "minimal". It can take several hours for a solid state amp to start sounding good and 24 hours to sound its best, unless it's Class 'A'. That's why manufacturers advise you not to turn them off. It's the same for a tube preamp; it takes much longer to warm u...

You may want to consider that turning your preamp on and off is putting unnecessary wear'n'tear on the preamp tube(s) due to the heating/cooling/voltage surge at turn-on. It's not like a tube power amp that runs hot; you do have to turn those off when not using them to conserve their lifetime. Tube ...

The benefit of a XLR cable will be dependent on the circuit in which it is employed. Some amps have XLR input/outputs but the single is single ended. Exactly. There are companies that provide XLR outputs but do not have the truly differential circuitry inside, so it's not "balanced" at al...

Many Philips transports are no longer available, nor are the laser mechanisms. You may have a boat anchor there.
You'll have to ask a tech if those parts are available.
