I am sorry, rest of my system : WireWorld Polaris 5 speaker cable (2x2,5m), WireWorld Silver Eclipse 5ý RCA (0,5m), WireWorld Aurora 5ý (2m) power cords and (currently) Martin Logan Mosaic hybrid floorstanders (magnetostatic not electrostatic). There you go.
I never heard the Adamantes or Martin Logan as they are not to my taste. My friend is using Kharma Ceramique with his Unison research and the system produced a sweet, valve like sound but no mean lacking in bass or details.
Other than that may be try some ProAc 140 or PMC FB+
I really think you should try a pair of Sonus faber concertino (£1150 inc stands) with the setup you have mentioned.
They sound magical and they look gorgeous.
In case your wondering my system is Cyrus cd8x,Unison research seconda,Sonus faber concertino (gloss black).
One thing i found them lacking in is transparency,but they still sound excellent.
Try a dem. Bye
Or possibly some of the Opera Linea Callas speakers, which are very much in the same mold as the Sonus Fabers. Like Diapason, they share a UK distributor with Unison Research, in the form of UKD, and the company tends to range products that work well together. For the same reason, the Final speaker range might be worth a look, too...
[quote user="Cyberbob"]Andrew, what do you think about cable choice for Unison combo? Your personal opinion, please. Sorry for bother You.[/quote]
Never found a CD player/amp combo that didn't work well with Chord Co cables. Have a listen and decide which one is worth buying - I'd be looking at Chorus 2 or thereabouts, plus Odyssey or Epic speaker cable
I tend to think differently about pairing the Unico with Italian speakers like Sonus Faber and Opera...I would avoid doing that. If I may generalise, Italian speakers tend to be on the warm side, and pairing the Unico (especially with the stock tubes) with them would result in a sound that as one member pointed out above, lacks transparency. Currently I have the Amperex 7316 in my Unico, which has so much better clarity, transparency and tautness compared to the stock tubes.
Yes I know that, that's why I have this cables and (currently) Martin Logan's "Mosaic" magnetostatic speakers. I like their sound, but...I would like to try ML's new model "Source" which has electrostatic panel. Can You tell me the rest of your equipment?
Very nice setup, if you have money, replace Qed speaker cables with better one and enjoy !!! I mean, nice cables but your system deserves better. The reason why I bought Unico CD (approx 1500 £ ) is just styling...what to say...nice emotive sound, not the most subltle of machines. For me and my ears, nice Italian combo. Check my bio.
Btw, I checked again stock tubes: Unico Amp - Electro Harmonix
Unico CD - Philips 5814a
Strange, my amp has the Philips 5814a as stock tubes instead. I have tried the Electro Harmonix as well, and found them better than the Philips. For new production tubes, the JJ is also quite good. As for NOS tubes, I didn't like the RCA Clear Top, but I love the Amperex Bugleboy 7316 I'm currently using.
