On the red535 just lacking a full sounding bass.........without amp, everything is improved. Dynamics are terrific. But I need to add, without a full sounding bass, spacial and soundstaging cues are missing. By a full bass, I don't mean rumble and so on. That should be well left to the the movies. With the Home Movie systems being more popular and the uses of sub woofers, I feel people are confusing what real bass is.
Real bass is not crash, bang and wallop! Real bass doesn't increase bass lines, nor, make it more prominent or give a bigger whack on drums etc. All real bass does is give a better interpretation of spacial cues. Soundstaging becomes more 3 dimensional, you hear the borders of venues better, there is better fill to the music. eg. by adding a pair of Thor Hammers to the Wilson Alexandria 2 is not going to give a thumping great bass as, the Alexandra 2 can do that part all by itself (I don't own these speakers).
So when I say that with the silver 5N OCC cable lacks bass, you are losing the heart and drive of the music! Hence the purchase of the Triad L3.
