    • Never go to a psychiatrist, adopt a straycat or dog. On the street they live only two years average.

For those of us who are not "serious", I'd submit the "large roll of cash" (whatever "large" means to you) and understanding spouse are at the top of the list.

Hope this is still considered within the topic: is there any consensus on a recommended dB meter?

Those are on national backorder with no ETA. Capacitance meters are easy to find though.  :lol:

Those little speaker-binding-post tools, I think Audioquest makes one.  They fit in the hand so nicely and there is a size at each end so they fit most speaker binding posts. You can feel how tightly you are torquing the post and there is no slip and no chance of making an accidental connection between the R and B posts.  An excellent tool !
