If we are discussing the bass response of the 10” single driver speaker with quarter transmission line (i.e the sound of the Cube Nenuphar), I feel when properly set-up, there isn’t a need for a subwoofer and my two local audiophile friends who ha...

My response to this thread is my way of helping people.

I proved that the physics of a single driver with the many design aspects of that single driver and enclosure is superior sounding to my ears.

I also have many of the same tweaks as MC.

Had the Tekton DI SE and the Cube Audio Nenuphars are way better and I'm sure since they don't have a crossover and a point source with coloration, they are better than the Moab. 
Most rooms don’t need acoustical treatment.
I agree 100% with calloway. I thought I had a "good room". I have the SR Wide angle HFTs, HFTs on my loudspeakers, and the SR Black Box. I have a dedicated (15’ x 22’) room with 9’ ceilings but it has an open back wall to the kitchen and eating ar...

debjit_gI have a similar room to yours but mine is 15' x 20' with an 9ft ceiling, speakers 8ft apart,  that opens to a kitchen on the left, and sit 8.5 ft from the Nenuphars.  I have the FW SIT-1 and the Ayon Audio Odin III amps.  I had better bas... 
Has Anybody Had Success Going from Ethernet Streaming to USB Streaming?
Thanks jaytor.  This was one of the paths was considering.  This helps a lot. 
Has Anybody Had Success Going from Ethernet Streaming to USB Streaming?
Ratbastrd... love the handle.  The NAS is slower than a NUC in loading and accessing files.  Some say the NUC running Linux is designed specifically to stream music only and doesn’t run extraneous applications in the background like a windows base...

One other thing I left out:  I started with the Tidal Audio Impact amplifier on the Nenuphars.  That amp has a damping factor of 200,  two separate transformers (left and right channels), 8 transistors per channel, 145 watts/ch class AB but it run...

“New models within the Ianus Series include the Geminae (€110,000) Class A amplifier that produces 130 Watts @ 8 Ohm. Aries Cerat’s Essentia (€39,000) is the little brother that produces 40 Watts @ 8 Ohms”.That makes the FW SIT-1 a bargain. Given ...

Stephen,I haven't tried the Ayon on the Marigo Labs L3 platform and isolated by the Marigo Labs E2 Mystery Feet.  I also plan on isolating all of the tubes with acrylic cylinders like Allnic Audio components.  I'm sure the butcher block amp stand ...

Update: I received my new in the box FW SIT-1s back from Pass Labs three weeks ago after having the voltage changed from 240v to 12v.  They did the service for free.  I waited for delivery on my Marigo Audio L3 platforms and E2 Mystery Feet (new p...

Stereotimes review posted. The Ayon Audio Odin SET run in parallel with a DF of 12, operation in class A, and with zero negative feedback, is another amplifier that can be added to the list of compatible amplifiers that work well with the Nenuphar...
