Upgrade from Hiline interconnect between CD555 & preamp  ( to probably Super Lumia?)

Full loom of Super Lumia (pre to power )    - tried that didn't like it, settled for Chord STA instead !

Maybe the new B&W 800s or active S800s in my next life ?  ...looks like that won't happen then... (Feb 2016 update)

 Just a NAP500. - 2013 was a busy year!

Then maybe B&W 802s   802 diamonds arrived mid Sept 2013... and left Dec 2017  (replaced by ATC SCM100 active)

Factory visit (in this life) - did that Sept 2013 - v interesting !

Chord Sarum TA - source to pre & pre to power amp  (or maybe the new Naim interconnects?)
