Credos:
I listen to music, not to flaws in gear
There is no such thing as "too much power"
Well-designed gear doesn't need fancy cables

Getting great sound quality:
1. Synergy
2. Abundant clean power
3. Solid state: transparency, accuracy, slam

Banned:
Dealers who don't allow auditions
Fancy cables: no benefit for high-quality gear
Tubed power amps: don't have central heating?

Audio-Related Tweaks

Seriously?
