Power Conditioner: Isotek, Audioquest or other?
Puritan highly recommend. Made in the U.K. and sensibly priced, well engineered, no bs product. As good as if not better than more expensive alternatives. If you were in the UK we would lend you one to try. 
Demo'ing Class A amps, Appreciation Suggestions from those who recently been there
@chorus, I recommend trying to get a listen to the Bakoon 13R class A SS amplifier. It works extremely well with Cube Audio Nenuphar’s. Suggest reading Srajan’s review on Six Moons. It’s extremely compact, a work of art. It has its own volume cont...

If budget is a concern there is the excellent Cube Magus, available fully built at £6,900.00 a pair or the Cube Magus Drivers at £2,570.00 a pair. I’ll make this a separate thread in due course since this thread should remain about the Cube Nenuph...

I have size 3, which accommodates both 8 and 10 inch Nenuphar’s. Size 2 should be ok with 8 inch only.

Steve, glad you tried isolating the speakers and heard an improvement. I think this is definitely something most speakers would benefit from. Townshend are a good commercially available product that work with a variety of speakers. My Townshend pl...
