I took the alternate route. I moved up from Luminous Audio Synchestra Signature to TG Audio High Purity ICs. I'm too cheap to pay Nordst prices, and thought I would be shipping Bob's new $800 IC back to him. No way!! I ordered his speaker cables as an upgrade from my Analysis Plus Oval 9 biwire. Bob told me he would send me a set of High Purity to try. Bob is not only a great cable designer, but ain't too bad at marketing either. After a couple of tunes on your CD player through the High Purity ICs, You think $800 is cheap.It totally transformed my Cary 308T in every performance parameter. I think I know what a Wadia 861 sounds like now. Soundstage, dynamics, extension of all freqs, PRAT, resolution, thy name is TG Audio High Purity.
