Thanks! for the update fsmithjack
I have always wanted to demo Kubala cabling, good to read that the switch made a positive difference. I cannot offer advice on vinyl nor TT. I am a CD and SACD guy. Keep writing as you figure and configure your system. It all takes time to gel together.
Happy Listening!

UPDATE:

So my new Magico S5 MK II Speakers that I ordered on November 11, 2018 were delivered and installed in my room 3 days ago and I am psyched.

I never ordered speakers brand new and had them made for me before this way just like I want them so the wait was not fun but the idea and process sure was.

They sound totally different then original S5 which is kind of odd. They look similar but sound nothing like the originals. They have totally different drivers, cables, crossovers and the cabinet looks similar but is totally different so I guess it makes sense but I was thinking more of a evolutionary sound then a totally different sound but they are nothing like the old ones. Still burning them in and will be for the next month or so but they are awesome and I am psyched.


I appreciate the info and help on this thread.
Congrats on your new speakers!  I absolutely love my S3Mk2s as I’m sure your will your S5Mk2s
