Not in the camp that think ABS enclosure affects the sound in a night and day manner but......

What if it's a Prestige model and people request it to be done in ABS then? :neutral_face:

How sensitive are the Noble K10 to the source by the way (the Andromeda changes dramatically) And is it a very good pairing with the Chord Mojo?

Noble K10UA Measurements: https://clarityfidelity.blogspot.com/2016/08/noble-audio-kaiser-10-universal-new-ver.html

Impedance dips to around 14 Ohm at around 10KHz, which means it'll draw less voltage there than anywhere else on its FR, which explains the 10KHz dip. It also means that a typical 2 Ohm output amplifier will slightly overdampen the 10 Khz region, resulting in slower-than-normal decay of those frequencies.

Whether that produces desirable SQ or not... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Ideally, it looks like you will want to drive these through amps that have 1 Ohm or less output impedance.

Pretty good indicators, they sound good

I can only say that I am very happy with the Mojo feeding my K10c's.

I found the Kaiser good with any source and cable that had a low impedance.

Oh my, I've been waiting for the joy of owning a K10 for ages. This offer is really really tempting... And I've got the funds :ok_woman:
