    I have one of the first production units so no Nova written in red on it. I've asked Esprit and they told me it is only a cosmetic feature, and it looks nice too. The internal design is unchanged.

    Sure, but to my ears, and although the Nova also helps the bass slightly, its effect is mostly pronounced in the midrange and highs. One of my ideas was to place the Nova behind the speakers but on the midrange/tweeter level and see what happens. Once we experiment, I will let you know. Sorry...

    You are welcome! I am continuing the tests here as well. I am especially curious if there is a certain spot the Nova should be installed in the listening room for the absolute best results, but so far very pleased with the results. :)

    Although I am not sure what the real science behind the Nova is, I was told by Esprit that it is a product they have developed based on their extensive experience with cable dielectric polarization benefits. I guess they had a great idea and made it work. It also took many years of polishing the...

    You are quite welcome! I did a blind test with some local audiophiles who didn't have any idea what is going in. They all agreed that the tonality was better and soundstage was bigger. They also said there is a notably more detail as to everything becomes blacker. Of course, I agree that the...

    I have one in my listening room. What it does can be clearly heard. To my ears, and in my audio system, it enlarges the soundstage, enhances the detail and makes the tonality even more precise / more natural. At first I installed it in the middle of the speakers, but then was advised by Esprit...

    Hello GuyB, I usually don’t respond to such forum posts, but you being a well known audio store in France, and also a competitor to our French distributor HifiLink, I felt like writing something here so our fellow audiophiles can have a better grasp at what is going on. HifiLink brought our...

    Sure, I remember you initially talked about the power cord. As mentioned, our entire audio system is wired with Gaia, this means all components are connected with Gaia power cords. Also there are Gaia RCA and XLR interconnects and 3 meters speaker cables. The sound is phenomenal, least to say...

    It is strange that you feel Gaia will not be good for your DAC to Pre connection. What is your server and DAC? Do you use USB connection for the DAC to server connection?

    Based on your "too much energy" comment, my advice would be to try out Esprit XLR cables. You will not regret it.

    Esprit Cables

    We have been using Esprit cables exclusively in our reference audio system - first Eureka and now Gaia. In our opinion, Esprit designs extremely natural and refined sounding cables which will not add or subtract anything from the music.
