    I don’t think I will be introducing a Sub at this stage.
    Burn in time for everything (20 hrs for the cable/interconnects, 100 hrs for the speakers?) aside, does your setup sound balanced? How is the soundstage and is it true that the Zensors don’t have to be toed in and can just fire straight forward?
    Sorry for all the questions but I would really appreciate and value your thoughts on these queries as I am keen to get my rig sounding ‘right’.
    P.S. I will be listening in a small to medium size room, to a mix of music, both Redbook CDs and 96/24 vinyl rips burnt to DVD-R, using a Sony DVD player as a transport for both.

    Dear Dave
    Firstly, apologies for contacting you out of the blue. I share the same Yamaha A-S500 amplifier and DAC setup (Caiman SEG and Dorado) as you but not having much luck pairing speakers to the as you know, lively and bright amp. Having initially purchased Q Acoustics 3010is blind (bad move – way to strident!!), I ‘downgraded’ to Wharfedale 9.1s. These have introduced a bit more bass, however are messy in the midrange, so I am still seeking a good match for the Yamaha.
    To this end, how have your experiences been with the Zensor 3s? Did you achieve a marked improvement over your previous speakers?
    In addition, I am thinking of matching your cabling and interconnects as well. I currently use Chord for the speakers and I think Ixos something or other for interconnects. I don’t think they are helping the over bright presentation. Am I right in thinking that you are currently using the Klotz between DAC and amp and the S-Flex to the Zensors?
