Good evening, I have borrowed a pair of Superlumina din to xlr for my nap300dr last week, i didnt install them until monday. when i fist put them on i didnt like everything they did but thought i would run them for a few days. They are used so run in etc
Strange thing, its now thursday and my system is sounding really really good, like properly! I am going to pop my standard cables back on tomorrow just to confirm things.
Something i find really interesting, they seem to have taken a few days to settle in, im not sure if the the jiggly bits in the plugs need some time do de jiggle, anyone else found this?
I have read some people didnt get on with these cables so got me wondering, any feedback would be usefull
I’ve found most cables need time to rest when you have played around with them. Cable experts talk about mechanical stress that change properties until they have settled and relaxed in their new position. Just like me when I’ve sat down in a sofa for couple of hours and get up. Takes time to get going
I tried them a few times, i did not find them to improve the SQ. My conclusion……it was part of room/ system tuning. They did not make a more enjoyable sound versus Naim nacA5…….and i found it difficult to better. Now with Kudos ks-1.
its 100% not that mate. one of my mates listened on monday when these first went in and then this morning with the same track at the same volume and asked…what have you done? it sounds amazing. si i showed him the cables and he agreed much better today
Funny how experiences with cable upgrades vary so much. I found SL speaker cable to be a big upgrade, even with the relatively modest Naim system I had at the time. Then I borrowed a SL interconnect, but it did absolutely nothing for me so I passed.
For some reason the Superlumina DIN/XLR’s seem to get a bit of bad press. A lot of people find they initially make little/no difference to the SQ. My experience was just the opposite. However, they did take some time to come on song. When they do though it opens up the amp considerably. Vocals in particular become wonderfully natural. If you can get them to hang from the PS to the amp without touching the floor or any other wires they will sound even better. I’ve tried a couple of alternatives to SL but haven’t yet found anything better.
