NanoFlo Superconductor Holographic 3D6 Review
  ”This NanoFlo power cord appears to have a very unusual history. - According to this Nano-flo webpage, it listed for $1500, back in April 2022. - According to this discussion, the price dropped down to $1000 on Ebay. Now, the MSRP is $3999. ...

Is Revelation Audio out of business ?
I’ve always received the cables I ordered from Brad.  Sometimes it took 3 weeks and some times it took 4 weeks.  Brad does make some of the best bang for the buck cables.

@david_ten The following paragraph precedes that amplifier list and this what was stated one time as referenced in the Mono & Stereo review of the Nenuphar: Magus are dedicated for rooms of 12 - 25 square meters. They are a perfect match for ...

Here's some food for thought:  I think this a question for Cube Audio with respect to the V1 and they will see it as a mute point.  Why did Cube Audio have a list of compatible amplifiers when they offered the V1s?  You don't see a recommended lis...

@david_ten What I mean related to the Ayon SETs is that the V2s would pair better than the V1s.  If you remember, Cube Audio didn't like the pairing of the V1s with 300B based amps which I think is closer to the SET tube used by Ayon Audio. The V2...

@david_ten The V2s disappear better on all recordings than the V1s.  The extended bass and high frequencies result in better soundstaging and center fill.  It might be that I needed to move the V1s closer together than the V2s. I haven't validate...

I’m at the 75 hour mark on the break in. The V2s definitely take longer to break on and that was confirmed by Jon Ver Halen. The V2s are opening up more and the need for more gain has dropped some. I never run out of gain on the V2s while using th...

Installed the V2 drivers on Friday. I had +1.4dB of Roon DSP at 100Hz set on the V1s. I eliminated the Roon DSP before hearing the V2 drivers for the first time. The V2s definitely require a break-in period. I am hearing some of the differences as...

Interesting... The bass response is now 38Hz (6 dB).  It was 30 Hz (6 dB).  Why did the V2 lose the lowest bass response?  Should be easier to drive as an 8 ohm impedance.  What is the minimum impedance?  We know replacing the foam surround decrea...

Mozartfan,  You can’t fault Cube Audio for refining their product further.  If they didn’t try to develop a 15” single driver speaker, we would never have a perceived better Nenuphar.  If you apply your logic to every manufacturer of audio equipme...

abd1,  Just for fun, see if there is a polarity switch on your Streamer, DAC or Preamp.  Change the phase setting and listen.  You might not have the phase set properly.

abd1, I understand your frustration. This is my opinion but when I had the Acoustic Zen Crescendos that have a wide dispersion ribbon tweeter, the vocals where better focused in the the center most of the time. The Cubes speakers don’t have a ribb...

If you have Roon you can adjust the DSP.  I found that -1dB at 4000Hz and +1.5dB at 100Hz (both 1 for Q) with the Sample Rate Conversion set at smooth linear phase sounds excellent to my ears in my room.  This will get me by until there are more e...

Based on the photo on the current last displayed page on 6 Moons, it looks like Cube when to a single footer on the front baffle and two footers on the rear of the cabinet.
