    @Mike

    Thanks for the thoughtful comments. Signal cables sound like a great value if it sounds very to someone who has owned Synergistic before.

    Hi Tom

    Couple of questions. What speaker cables do you use for your SLs?

    What IC do you use for your Pass Labs amp? What do you recommend?

    Thanks Tom. Has anyone heard the Sablon cables? They seem to be getting a lot of positive reviews lately.

    Which PS model are you using now?

    Which PS regenerator? They are quite expensive. Was the sonic difference with it dramatic or subtle?

    Lumin x1 is around $10,000. Do you think it is worth the cost? I am using Lumin U1 mini.

    Do you think there is noticeable difference between hi-rez and CD quality either source? I heard that most people can’t tell the difference.

    Thanks everyone. I can’t sound stage each player’s position very clearly but it is well centered in that the main singer comes from the center. It is possible that the recording engineer for most of my tracks on Tidal playlist didn’t do a good job. Does anyone in this forum have Tidal tracks that should give clear instrument separation spatially? Like you are walking in between instruments.

    Wow. Sit 3 ft from speakers? I would be closer to speakers than speakers are to themselves.

    Width of the room is 9 ft and 10.5 ft long. My ears are about 1 ft from the back wall.

    My room is actually 10.5 ft long and my distance from the SLs is at an angle since I am sitting in the center. I am wondering if I am too close to the speakers?

    Has anyone tried the sound absorbers that SL is selling? Are they effective?

    It seems that in my small room with M545, the sound from the left and right periphery (where the speakers are) seems more emphasized (?louder) than the singer (in the center). I am thinking that this may be due to speaker placement and toe-in angle (about 20%). What do you all think?

    the outer edge of SL is 11 in from the side wall and the space between SLs is about 4.5 ft. I am sitting about 6-6.5 ft from SLs. There is about 5 ft from the front wall (facing me) and SL panels.

    How would you compare X350.5 with JC-1?

    In my very small room (9 x 10′), M545 works well with my Pass lab x250.5 and the needle rarely every move past the midline (leaving class A, 15W). Do you think X350.5 will sound noticeably better than my X250.5? X350.5 is considerably heavier, runs hotter and more expensive. I may consider buying one if it will REALLY make a difference. What do you think.

    You are using Pass amps for your SL speakers. How would you compare Ayre and Pass 20 preamps for the Pass amps? Ayre is much more expensive.

    Does the meter needle in your 260.8 go past the Class A mark? I believe 260.8 is in Class A until something like 16W.
