Cube Audio Nenuphar Single Driver Speaker (10 inch) TQWT Enclosure
Interesting recent posts by all addressing synergy of Nenuphars with various amps.  Good to hear reinforcement of the AC Genus magic--it received a rave from AVShowrooms.  The LM 845 Premium is also a pairing I would love to hear--although I belie...

I have about 100 hours now on my Nenuphars and just recently noticed another notch of improvement in the high register.david_ten, toetapaudioAt what point did you feel the speakers were fully broken in?

While I'm at it, I'm also going to post the results of the amplifier shoot out between the LTA Ultralinear and the PL SIT-3.  Yes, I know, the Nenuphars are probably not fully broken in, but at around 75 hours I think the changes from here will be...

david_ten How are your speakers setup on the Townshend platforms? Stock spikes / similar to @toetapaudio ’s OR some other arrangement? Did setting the speakers on the platforms ’force’ changes in positioning / placement? Thank you.David--I am usin...

grannyringThe Townshend podiums are size 4 with load capacity E which starts at 85lbs so I put a couple of VPI bricks on top of each speaker since they are about 80lbs each.geoffkaitMakes sense.

khragonGreat news you like the synergy with the SIT-2.  Look forward to hearing more.My latest development is putting the Nenuphar's on Townshend Podiums (I've been using them under my speakers for a few years). toetapaudio listed the many benefit...

"...a bit lacking in warmth, a bit rough sounding in the upper midrange and had a pronounced peak in the treble range."Interesting that the above accurately describes what I was hearing during the first 25 hours or so of playing the Nenuphars.  (A...

@david_tenAnd, yes, thanks David for pointing out Srajan's latest (which is now finished).  I now have the term for what I'm hearing from the Nenuphars driven by the SIT-3: Tuscan sunshine!

grannyringAlthough I think I'm the newest Nenuphar owner on the block--just at 2 weeks--I'll chime in with my answer to your question regarding the speakers resolution making "below average sounding recordings sound less enjoyable or possibly bad?...

khragonWise choice!I am thrilled with the synergy the SIT-3 has with the Nenuphars and the SIT-2 should be even better from what Srajan heard with the SIT-1.I think you'll be shocked at the difference between the SIT-2 and your other amps.You're i...

Charles, indeed the Nenuphars have remarkable transparency, in fact the most of any speaker I've ever heard, including electrostatics which I owned for many years. It is a totally relaxed, natural kind of detail that doesn't seemed forced, just pa...

Just exchanged emails with Grzegorz.  He said they use multi conductor copper cables in their speakers and that he prefers copper speaker cables.

@cal3713 What brand of silver speaker cable did you purchase? Interesting because with the SIT-3-Nenuphar combo, I prefer the WE 14ga vintage copper cable (similar I would imagine to your Dueland tinned copper).  Bunch of improvements over the sil...

I've got about 35 hours on my new Nenuphars, swapping between First Watt SIT-3 and LTA Ultralinear amps.  The break-in changes to SQ have been subtle and what you would expect--increase in depth, smoother highs, tighter bass.  But the difference b...
