So what do I start saving for now???

Unread post by zebbo » Tue Jan 09, 2018 8:45 pm

As title states, where do I go from here?
My system, other than source, is now 100% NVA. I'm happy with the A80s/A60 bi-amplification, interconnects are all TIS, speaker cables all LS6 feeding the Cube 1s. I realise that I can go for the Statement amps but I'm pretty much "boxed out" as it is so that leaves the speakers. I don't want to go powered so what is the next stage in the Cube / Cubix development and at what cost? My Cube 1s are bi-amped at the moment. Cheers.

Get a BMU. If you've got crappy mains the effect will be startling. If not the effect will be a little less than startling. As an upgrade at circa £500 it' a no-brainer. Really.

I should have said that I already use a BMU fed from a mains regenerator. Cheers.

Ahh yes, but there's always more to be had! (cost permitting). 8-)

Cubix (two box standard). Long delivery time as cases have to be ordered.
.
OR cheaper LS6 to TSCS

Hi Zebbo

Having just returned it to the Doc after a lengthy trial I'd say you have to try the TSCS, I was amazed at the difference between that and LS6 in my system. Better bass, treble and all the usual hi-fi stuff but more importantly much more musical and much more believable. Has to be heard - I feel a bit flat now it has gone! My order will be going in shortly once the cashflow builds up after the Christmas/New Year break.

PS - I'm listening to the Phono 2 now, can you given me any hints as to how the Phono 3 betters it please?
