Yesterday, I predicted that I would need 5 minutes to set the whole thing up. Well, I was wrong. It took 5 minutes to set up the speakers, but 30+ minutes to free them from their excellent packaging.
Once again I noticed that I absolutely hate cables, especially the ones that bend every which way and are extremely difficult to tame. The optical TOS-Link cable I needed to connect my Audiofly receiver to the left active speaker immediately made the top spot on the list of the most obnoxious offenders. We’ve landed on the moon and on comets hurtling through space but haven’t been able to come up with a truly user-friendly and audiophile system that finally does away with the cable spaghetti we audio geeks are all too familiar with. I think I’ve spent more time domesticating hundreds of meters of cables than on setting up all the rest. Plus some.
P.S.: The little guy standing on the Audiofly receiver was included in the Nubert shipment. For today, he’s going to keep his spot. The feet beneath the speakers are shock absorbers produced by inakustik. The speakers are linked with 3 future-proof meters of nuCable Digital Pro. The slim Nubert remote control, which gives access to all relevant functions built into the nuPro A-300, is lying next to the Audiofly receiver..
