  • Thank you all for the the reply’s. As always, the help that can be had here at CP is priceless. When I installed this system back in 2010, I used 12 gauge wire. ICs are all Audioquest King Cobra. HDMI’s are all Audioquest as well. I have a 64…

  • I can't see my post from earlier tonight. Hope I didn't inadvertently delete it?
  • It’s been a while since I’ve checked in with a post. I still visit daily and learn so much from all you Polkies. I’ve added a few pieces to my 2 channel rig since I posted this thread. I sourced a second MC2102 amp and now run them in a mono bl…

  • Appreciate the comments. Prior to this 2102, my system was being driven with a EL34 based tube amp. That amp was less powerful but highly modified and certainly capable of efficiently driving horns. Quite a noticeable and pleasant improvement i…
  • Prayers for peace and comfort for your mom, you and your family.
  • I really haven't paid much, if any, attention to boxing since the 70s. All of the kids on our block would get together and watch the Ali fights. I remember it being a really huge deal. Parkinson's is absolutely brutal (a gross understatement). It…

  • Profit Sharing? The management of the NYSE traded fortune 500 company I work at would steal a kidney from me and try to sell it to increase revenue (i.e. quarterly results) if they could get away with it. We got the good ole "your being converted…
  • There are always going to be millions of idiots driving on our roads every day. Until we have driverless cars, nothing is ever going to change that fact. It's best to take the advice from that song in a recent famous Disney movie and "Let it go, Let…
  • My gas dryer stopped heating a while back. I went to the appliance store. I was at the checkout just about to pull the trigger on both a brand new high efficiency washer and dryer. Being cheap when it comes to certain things, I bailed. When I …

  • Combination code lock box with key inside. It gets placed on the door or some other easy to find location.

  • Anyone have any experience as to if there is much of a difference between these grade A TII grey bottles and the predecessor grade A T black bottles? I've read quite a bit on Grant Fidelity's web page. However, I tend to value opinions here on CP.…
  • Just gorgeous. Bet it sounds even better. For me the SLP-05 in black is one of the coolest looking pieces in this hobby. Surprised this hasn't moved yet. Good luck with your sale.
  • Prayers and positive thoughts of love and healing for Emma, you and your wife.

  • RIP Glenn Frey.
  • Big fan of PS Audio here. All my power cords are AC 5s. I use a Soloist Premier SE in-wall conditioner. An AC 5 runs from the Soloist to a Power Plant Premier regenerator. From the PPP I run AC 5s to each component. My PPP died a few years back…
  • So very sorry to hear this. Just heartbreaking. May love and compassion envelop you, your son and family. You are all in my prayers.

  • Positive thoughts and a prayer for Chuck and your family.
  • I've owned the P 3, JC 2 (sold) and now have the P 5. The JC 2 outperforms the P 3 and P 5 by a fairly significant margin. I recently purchased the P5 to use as a temporary piece while my main preamp is being serviced. I've been running it for …

  • I use Psvane CV181-T black bottles in my preamp. Absolutely wonderful sounding tube IMHO. Everyone's taste is different, so YMMV. For me, I am a huge fan of Shuguang/Psvane tubes. Looks like your preamp uses eight 6SN7s. Eight CV181-TIIs will c…
  • Generous with his knowledge and always willing to help when he can. Thank you Jesse.
