I have NOVA V's and I am not happy
Just noticed the OP has these speakers for sale on Audiomart.  From what I can see his room isn't damped well plus the speakers aren't even set-up properly.  Seems like a waste of time helping this guy.

@ieales your assessment of the Nova 5 is about the most inaccurate statement or reference. Nothing will make it sound good? Why would a company make a product that doesn't sound good or match well with various electronics?

The Nova 5s are fantastic speakers. Just a quick glance at this thread I'm thinking the ML isn't the best match.  Also I would upgrade the Kimber 8TC and look into warmer interconnects. The Luxman, McIntosh or consider Audio Research amps. I have ...

Any thoughts on Pass X150.8 ?
Sonically I wasn't crazy over the 150.8. Build quality is fantastic but overall the midrange was analytical and boring. The bass was very good and highs were also however,  I could never warm up to the amp. Was using with Sonus Faber Olympica 3s w... 
Valve Amp for Sonus Faber Sonetto IIIs
@jjss49 totally agree. My Olympica 3s sound wonderful with the REF75SE.    
LS28 upgrade to LS28SE
Thank you docknow.   
LS28 upgrade to LS28SE
@aniwolfe. Yes lots of thought and thoughtfulness 🤣  
LS28 upgrade to LS28SE
What does PV56LX have to do with LS28?  
Best 12AU7 Type Tubes for a Preamp
I prefer Brimars. Gorgeous midrange and a little more sparkle up top than Mullards.   
What’s your latest high-end audio purchase?
ARC Ref75SE and LS28.  Done with upgrades. Very happy with this combination.    
Magico Ultimate III - $700,000 Speakers
If Jay toured the Magico facility and recommends then I'm sure people will place a 2nd mortgage on their house 🤣🤭😜  
Have opportunity to buy BHK 300's or Pass Labs 250.8 for my Thiel 3.7's- thoughts??
Have you considered Audio Research? I used to use a Ref110 with Thiel 2.7 with very good results.    
ARC REF 150 Buzzing noise
KT150 are just fine to use in the Ref150. In fact they should sound much better than the 120s.
