    The compact 7's are not that small to be honest at 52cm high and 8" driver - would love some L100's however alas funds don't allow and also not sure the Lumin would drive them also!
    yes the L100 are a bit pricey I agree. Does the Lumin sound right with any of your speakers?

    Yes, I like it with my Davone Rays which on paper are quite hard to drive (4ohm, 89db sensitivity) but am keeping those down stairs with my Gato DIA400S

    Yes they are a tough load, so there's clearly no issue with the Lumin in that respect. Very cool speakers, I'd like to hear those.

    At a dead end as far as your issue goes though

    Mine are the Ray S which I believe are the 2nd incarnation and are 3 way (original were single driver).

    I was amazed when I first had them with my Gato DIA250 but when I upgraded to the 400S, they really come alive.

    As for my predicament with the Lumin then I think I may have to take it with me and try some various options and maybe spend a bit more closer to the Davoneís to try and get a similar result as I do with them

    Thanks Phil, which model do you have again?

    I was thinking something like the Revolution range might be within budget.

    Some Tannoys... Get some nice 15" Monitor Golds or similar... Brilliant.

    I've tried some digital amps including a cheap SMSL with mine and I was very surprised.

    Not sure of your price range or size of speaker for that matter, but have you considered something like these?

    Listening is the act of aural discrimination and dissemination of sound, and accepting you get it wrong sometimes.

    Analog Inputs:
    Pro-Ject Signature 10 TT & arm
    Benz Micro LP-S, Michel Cusis MC, Goldring 2500 and Ortofon Rondo Blue cartridges
    Hitachi FT5500 mk2 Tuner

    Digital:-
    Audiolab 8300CDQ CDP/DAC/pre-amp
    RaspberryPi/HifiBerry Digi
    Buffalo NAS Drive

    Amplification:-
    Sonnetteer Sedley phonostage
    Krell KSA-80 power amp

    Output:
    Wilson Benesch Vector speakers
    KLH Ultimate One Headphones

    Cables:
    Furutech AG-12-R4 High Performance Phono Cable
    Eccose Conductor CA1
    Belden 8402 with Switchcraft 3502A Audiophile High-End RCA
    Chord Epic speaker leads, & signature links


    I think I am nearing audio nirvana, but donít tell anyone.

    I'd keep well away from those. Non-original cheapo piezo tweeters and 'chopped' bass foam surrounds bodged to fit.
    Conspiracy theories are only perpetuated because people go looking for them!
