    There are not enough photos being posted.

    Not my main system and always adding and removing parts.
    42.5/140/NAT02/SpendorS6e/iPad mini. (Nait1 just for balance).

    Merlin, the K2's will also work in corners, try them amazing and if you can try them with some Krell's driving them, then move on to the Everest's.

    Enjoy a really good loudspeaker.

    It's the weekend so time for a bit of an update:

    I've been listening to (and enjoying) the Nait XS all week. It's not the most resolving or transparent amplifier, but it has a wonderfully solid, bouncy and enthusiastic sound that is very moreish.

    So, today I re-connected the Silvercore One / Audion Silver Night mkII combo and.... my jaw hit the floor. There's nothing wrong with the XS. I can't think of a better amplifier for the money, but the Silvercore / Audion is on another level. It has a purity, freedom from grain and naturalness that makes other amplifiers sound 'synthetic'.

    Time to crack open a bottle and bathe in the sound these single ended 300Bs :D

    Over and out.

    Hi Lefty,

    Never heard your pre, but familiar with Audion via Phil at his old place in Congleton many years ago and latterly Audio Counsel. Superb amplifiers and one day I hope to find one at a price I can afford.

    Albeit not in the same league as your amplification, I feel the same when a go back to my a21a and class A.

    Thanks Richard - love the Sugden a21a. An absolute peach of an amplifier :)

    Glad the 42.5 is now getting some use.
    Sadly i never got the chance. Hope it is living up to expectations :)

    I remember the system a few months ago, a very nice upgrade!

    Seriously compromising sound quality with them all that close.

    Merlin, so as I can get a sense of scale, is that a 50-inch Pioneer Kuro?

    For scaling, dunno about the TV, but those are obviously 12" LPs !!

    Max, it's an old 42".

    The JBL's really aren't as imposing as the picture suggests. They are about the same size as an ATC 150 Tower but are a lot less deep and the curves soften the look to a degree IMHO.

    They are a speaker that presents an ideal set of compromises for me personally in the room that I use. Truly large scale but without troublesome bass extension. And I know it's so often said but, listening to many albums I've had for thirty years, these really do pull information out of the mix that I had absolutely no idea was there.

    Colour me impressed. I can only imagine what the newer versions sound like.

    As this is in my attic I'm just moving things around all of the time. I have an Isoblue rack that I may put up when I get a hicap.

    Nice Yuri, I hadn't realized the Sheva had been released yet! Keep us posted on these, ones that have been giving me some thought myself!

    What speakers are you running with these?

    This couple was sent to me for testing purposes by the official Russian distributor. Since they arrived only today, I have not yet come to a conclusion about their sound. I think in two weeks I will be able to say something about these devices.

    I wrote about my main system here:

    Thanks Yuri, sorry I missed it over the course of other things. Will certainly be interested in your opinion of the Clones, I certainly love the simplicity of them, although the Sheva Dac seems to have enough going for it internally/design-wise.

    Posted this in the Classics section, but it's actually a new TT made by the Classic Turntable Company, a remanufactured TT based on Garrard's 301, set in an SMD granite plinth.

    Besides, it deserves a wider audience :)

    Great album, and a nice-looking (and presumably -sounding) TT.
