Where’s My Weakest Link?
I think you should replace your wire with at least one step up the quality ladder. Something like Blue Jean Cable would make a noticeable improvement.  
Looking for Speaker Thoughts
There is a convincing video on YouTube that compares the ATC SCM 11 and the Buchardt S400. He kept saying how the ATC was liquid and open without any harshness and preferred them to the Buchardt.This has me chomping at the bit as I own the S400 an...

Just received shipment of my Magnepan LRS’s
