Thanks!. Yes I use the optical out from my tv to my dac for tv too, works great.
The cables are Blue Jeans Cables, I have much more expensive Acoustic Zen Satori cables, but in current placement they are not long enough, but I have been very happy with the BJC cables, just got some Supra Anniversary signal cables that I really like, will maybe buy the speaker cable from same Anniversary series , time will tell.
Thanks man! I was originally planning to buy a Harbeth, but unfortunately did not like it that much, but a dealer convinced me to try the Graham’s at my own home, if I did not like it I would get my money back, no questions asked.
They have been everything I hoped for, somehow they sound more natural than the Harbeths too me.
Cool to see a pair of Grahams - best speakers you've never heard of, right? I traded my Harbeth Monitor 30's (same size/design as your 5/9's) on a pair of Graham LS 5/8's and they've been a game changer.
