So just to clarify, is the Evolution One wired normally and ST10 and ST10M wired polarity reversed?

It's not really "wired" reversed.  Black posts are still ground.  The thing is that the amps are polarity reversing, and, therefore, to preserve absolute phase, you connect the black binding posts to the red speaker posts.

But yes, ST and STM topology is phase inverting, Evo One is (reportedly) not.

Hi!
I am a very happy new owner of the ST-10M's and Evolution DAC, only had them for a couple of days. Had ST-10 + Dac-10 before and it's a really big step up :)

Have a couple of questions about the phase inverting that I just read about in this thread. There is an option in the Evo DAC to go normal or inverted phase, is that the same thing that of switching binding posts on the speaker? I tried back and forth with the setting in the Dac but cannot not hear any significant difference... Maybe a bit more tight soundstage? Is there any perticular things I should listen for when switching between the two modes?

Different thing just switch the connections at the speaker.  In fact try it both ways you may prefer one over the other or not hear a difference.

I have the Evolution DAC paired with a Nord MK II, revision D. I’d like to know what you think of the Dac’s sound.

Love it! :)

Funny thing, I also was looking to buy the Nord or Apollon amp but ended up with the ST-10's. So I wonder what you think of the Nord?

I really enjoy my Nord, and Colin has become a friend. He is always interested in his customers’ opinions, and always a great guy.
