    Amp upgrade from Classe' to Levinson

    As in my previous post “Blown request woofer”, for some reason, the speaker terminals to the left woofer got lodged together, causing the left channel of my trusty Classe’ CA300 to blow. I contacted a few technicians, only to come to the same conclusion that it will cost $1.5k - $2k to fix, not...

What I saw was the black spade had slid off and was stuck to the red terminal!! There was NO sound coming...

    Tubed music server anyone?

    What would happen if you use this tubed computer as your music server? Heck, why stop there? I'd think one could wire a couple banks of output tubes in parallel and feed to the speakers, in output-transformerless fashion. Logically, shortest signal path from source, directly to speakers.

    Help with cable organizer

    ...My name is Spike and I've got Joey-itis! I finally stepped into the 21st century, ditching my 15-year-old 35" tube TV, replacing it with a Sony 52" Bravia LCD. Now that I got the LCD flatscreen and the Cinema mounted on my wall, I see a mess of wires/cables running across my floor. These...
