Re: Bought another CD player

I've had an S1 for a while but when I first got it I preferred my Nad DVD player and the Sony got put away. But last week I settled on the S1 in my headphone set up after trying a few players. I am really enjoying it and have spent more time listening on headphones than I have done for months, the S...

Re: Richard Dunn

Having been unable to attend the funeral, hopefully following my PM to him, Savvy was able to pass on my condolences. If not I hope Nadia is encouraged and comforted by the messages of support. My only contact with Richard was through the forum and via a few phone calls when I had a some issues wit...

Re: Classic CD Players

Would u consider my Meridian 206 classic- never use it these days- had it new Had a Sony cdp770 TIL recently- my first player I suppose it depends on which version. There were 3 different types over the years. I had a 206B and it was one of my favourite two CD players. It stopped working and I sent...

Re: Speakers that don't require a listener sweet spot.

Would Shahinian speakers be able to provide music without a sweet spot?

I seem to remember another brand of speakers with upward firing drive units as well but can't think of the name of them.

Edit - looks like the brand I was thinking of is Sonab

NVA Cube 2 review

I could talk about how, when I put the Cube 2s in place I got better image depth, instrumental decay and tone with these speakers. Cymbals are more realistic and the musical space seems to be filled out more compared to the Cubettes, bringing greater coherence to a performance. Positions of instrume...

Re: May the Cube2 be with you ..... too !

I use Atacama SE24 stands which stand on some plinths made from walnut worktop offcuts. I have Docs washing machine feet between the stands and the speakers and I could still do with the tweeters raising a couple of inches. I might go with some 40mm chopping boards attached to the top of the stands ...

Re: May the Cube2 be with you ..... too !

:clap: My experience of the Cube 2 pretty much mirrors yours. I should do a review but I am finding it so hard to describe the changes from the Cubettes because I am now too busy enjoying listening to music to critique the speakers.

Re: Speaker grills

Thanks for the top tip Scotty.

I was reluctant to have a go at one of the Cube 2 grills that was indented, it took me a couple of seconds to insert the corkscrew and pull gently, solving the issue completely :grin:

Re: Cubettes

I received my Cube 2s yesterday and after the Cubettes the bass is much fuller. My experience with non NVA speakers with fuller bass is that it has then had an impact on the rest of the frequency range. However the 2s manage fuller bass with no detriment elsewhere. There are many other improvements ...
