Greetings,
Can someone summarize how the original Spirit differs from the current Spirit II offering in RCA analog interconnects?
thank you
JS

I’ve owned both. The Spirit II is a little more detailed in my opinion but they’re pretty darn close overall.

The "Spirit II" appears to provide more sonic information as well as better extremes (deeper bass and more effortless highs) while still remaining balanced sounding. It is also quieter at idle than the original "Spirit I"...

My $0.02,
Pete

  Better overall. Especially the noise floor. Less noise more music.

Thanks for this info!
I was looking at some preowned original Spirit interconnects.  I’ll most likely call TWL and order some new Spirit II’s.
