I recently upgraded from NDX/202/250 (non DR) with the Allaes to NDS/555/252/Supercap/300DR but still with the Allaes. The improvement is very substantial- the music from the speakers is more engaging and stimulating. Same speakers so the front end is what made the difference.
i have the Isobariks anyway and the cost of the renewal/refurb is within bounds so I will proceed and use both the Allaes and the Isobariks (though I don,t look forward to shifting them!). I would like low stands for them to minimise the effect they will have in my lounge. Any ideas? I have read about Mana stands. Can you still get them?
Is there a benefit in going for treble drivers which are different from the originals?
