The components that are just whatever the music is...
Threshold FET10 (though this unit adds a bit of solidity to the bass)
The primary components that add greatly to the clarity (specifically these increase the clarity, where the above also let it show)
#1 of all: Furutech GTX duplex. particularly the Rhodium NCF duplex (I have 10 gold, 7 Rhodium Furutech all told in the system.) hese were a breakthrough. Added a few. wow, got me to add more, until I decided to replace all, even in the power conditioners.
The Pangea AC14XL power cords, The 34 ft and 42 ft extensions I use from a single 20 amp outlet for all power to my system Made of 12 gauge silver plated Teflon coated 600V MilSpec dual quads.
The pairs of resistors in the Magnepans add to the clarity and the warmth, The midrange resistors really are just to adjust the warmth I use Duelund CAST 2 ohm paired to give 1 ohm midrange, and 0.75 ohm for the tweeters, along with a home made choke of 31 turns of wire.
The Kimber KS interconnects add to the clarity and the solidity.
The primary factor which recently added exactly the warmth to my setup are two large refrigerator magnet whiteboard pads 1/2" under my CD changers I use. One via Toslink and one via RCA SPDIF to my Marantz SA-10 I have no basis to claim I understand what the magnet pads do. A mystery. And I would say for others,, unlikely to do what you want. (I am certain someone with no actual experience, and lots of homespun theories, can explain it away.)
For years I wandered on the edge of 'too lean' sound. while seeking clarity. The magic gizmo that was breakthrough was the magnetic pads.
I bought a few more, but I have no idea if they can do anything more. Big mistake right ON the case..But at 1/2" under. good. Like I wrote, I doubt they would be magic anything for anyone else.
There is no easy finding the magic recordings except someone saying they thought this or that recording is great for some reason.
I wish I had bought way more of all the MFSL and DCC though... way back whey they came out.
