Cube Audio Nenuphar Single Driver Speaker (10 inch) TQWT Enclosure
@djembeplay thanks for the details. Probably you know that every material used in audio has a sonic signature. One can test by introducing different materials under equipment and listening to the change in sound. I haven’t tried building cabinets ...

Hi @djembeplay sounds like a great project. What design are you considering and type of wood? Just in case you are not aware, the plans on the Cube website are different to what they use for their own complete builds.  Yamamotos will be a great m... 
Springs under turntable
Suggest combining your springs with 3 cups and balls arranged in a equilateral triangle for even better seismic isolation.

Good to see the Bakoon 13R and Enleum 23R now getting the recognition they deserve. @V10 thanks for your comparison, very useful. What other amps have you had experience of my I ask?

@stephendunn I have the 2020 version unpowered into the Bakoon dac. I see Mark Coles has now introduced an even higher model called the Evo, not tried yet. His LAN cable was the best I tried as well.

Sablon Elite USB I can recommend.  
Least Expensive Power Conditioner/Surge Protector That Won't Worsen Sound
U.K. produced Puritan PSM156, it works and is much better value than anything else.

Spec Corp vs Orchard? Anyone compared?  
Class A or Class D solid-state amplifiers (modern designs)
I’m surprised no one mentions SPEC CORP, outstanding amplifiers. Another may well be LFD I suspect, who have recently turned their hand to class D.

Direct wiring does have benefits, I’ve tried. Ricevs, let us know if you start that OB thread.  
Cube Audio Nenuphar Single Driver Speaker (10 inch) TQWT Enclosure
ricevs, good suggestions about OB and direct wiring but can I suggest a separate thread on OB designs for a fuller discussion. I would chime in since I have a number of designs and drivers in mind and intend to put them together this year includin...

Just for clarity; at the present time there is only one version of the Enleum and that’s the 23R. Any other references are for older Bakoon models.

Thanks David for the advice. ricevs, I’ve been there and done it 30 or so years ago. I agree it does make a difference direct wiring. As a Cube dealer I’m not going to recommend as this would inevitably disqualify the warranty. It might be possib... 
Power Conditioning on the Cheap
Puritan PSM156 or 136 at a lower price point. 156 is more robust. Can be mounted vertically with special feet. The Puritan mains cable supplied is also very good.
