    Absolutely. The RCA's made one heck of a difference so I have confidence that the Speaker cables will bring it up to the next level. The Lumin is a great piece. I am a Lumin fan from when I had the original D1

    T-bird speaker cables are in. They need some break in time since they are right out of the bag.

    They are sounding much better vs when I first put them into the system. They definitely neer some break in or setting in tike before they open up.

    Looking good Tom!

    Unless you are talking about where I learned my stunning white boy dance moves from, it's Todd, not Tom. The two systems are probably about 1500 miles apart and in a completely different time zone.

    I stayed up till about midnight listening. Although I think it needs more time to settle in I could immediately since the noise floor has been drastically lowered. The micro micro details are more pronounced. The layering and dynamics have taken a step up.

    I spent time during the install moving components and cable management. I have been rewiring the last couple of months and thought this would be a good time to straighten it up.

    I think the system is in a good spot. I need a couple of source power cables and a external DAC but that is going to have to wait for now.

    Here is a snapshot of the setup.

    It's amazing what you can hear (crystal clear) when what you heard before is no longer there.

    I wasn’t at first but am now a firm believer in what Audioquest is doing with their power centers.

    I am very happy with all the AudioQuest products I have recently purchased. DSkip and the AQ team have been tremendously helpful. In my first purchase I ordered a RCA that turned out to be to short. They took it back and had me a longer one in short order. And this was a rather expensive cable.

    I can’t say enough how they all have shown a genuine interest in my purchases and the sound quality that I have gained.
