    Hearing the difference now isn't the reason to encode to FLAC. FLAC uses lossless compression, while MP3 is 'lossy'. What this means is that for each year the MP3 sits on your hard drive, it will lose roughly 12kbps, assuming you have SATA - it's about 15kbps on IDE, but only 7kbps on SCSI, due to rotational velocidensity. You don't want to know how much worse it is on CD-ROM or other optical media.   I started collecting MP3s in about 2001, and if I try to play any of the tracks I downloaded back then, even the stuff I grabbed at 320kbps, they just sound like crap. The bass is terrible, the midrange...well don't get me started. Some of those albums have degraded down to 32 or even 16kbps. FLAC rips from the same period still sound great, even if they weren't stored correctly, in a cool, dry place. Seriously, stick to FLAC, you may not be able to hear the difference now, but in a year or two, you'll be glad you did.

    Nothing on ceramic cable risers? I hear they can really bring out details in 900hz range...  :P
     
    Could we have this up (or stickied) with responses for improvements/alterations/suggestions and then stickied permanently without them when it's 100%?

    'Rice paper wraps for all kind of audio interlink plugs. Analogue interlinks balanced or unbalanced and digital interlinks like coax and Toslink do benefit much from the Wraps. You need one Wrap per digital interlink! Great results when applied on plugs, for example: CD players, DAC 's and pre-amplifiers. And Audiophile iPod interlinks for head-fi. Price of one wrap € 35,00.'

    Tips:
     
    - use cable ties
    - get rid of useless wires like the hard drive activity light
    - fully modular PSU's help
    - braided cables (the fabric kind, not plastic) help as they are more flexible
    - all black cables look more minimal even though they're still there
    - try to minimise the use of Molex cables/connectors as they are massive. If you can, get piggy back Molex connectors so they're all in one place
    - run your fans all to one spot, you can make a molex to fan splitter really easily with some wire and other bits
