Following are my impressions of my audition of Cube Nenuphars: Please note only digital source was used to keep everything simple and quick switching of tracks. My dealer had all the Cube models on the floor but I only focused on the Nenuphars. Ge...

@david_ten Yes and big thanks. They were helpful. I am going to auditon them soon (first time didn't really do critical listening as I wanted to see something else). My Coincident Super Victory IIIs will really need a strong speaker to fall out of...
