Synergistic Universal Speaker & Interconnect Cells
After trying the Powercell 10SE and several Tesla Series cables (eg. T1, T3, Precision), I took the plunge and installed the Universal Speaker Cells.
The improvements exceeded my expectations and were bigger than prior gains in cable or component changes. It was easy to hear the improvements in dynamic range (due to lower noise floor), timbre, and soundstaging & imaging. My system now sounds more "real" and natural. The change was particularly apparent with female vocalists and percussive instruments (eg. piano).
My system continues to evolve and currently consists of VPI Aries (w JMW 10.5 & SDS), Ayre K1xe, Ayre V5xe, Bryston 4BSST2, Modwright 9000ES, Wavelength Cosecant v3 DAC, Usher BE-718 DMD, JL Audio Fathom F110, all resting on Symposium shelves & Rollerblocks.
Since my Ushers can be bi-wired, I will try that upgrade next.
Has anyone tried the Universal Interconnect Cells? What is the best place to try it? Will I get the best results between the pre and power amp?
