I recently bought a Sanders 10e speaker system.  They are set up in a small dedicated room.  I'm still learning about their placement sensitivity.  

I'd like to hear any comments from folks on how to dial in Sanders speakers, as well as adjust my other components.  I'll be gradually adding component details and photos.  Thanks for looking!

jond - I have found that removing power conditioners can improve sound in some cases.  For example, in my setup, the Sanders Magtech amp sounds better without power conditioning.  (I tried it with an Equi=Tech, Transparent, and Shunyata power products, and the bass didn't seem as deep.)

Here is some info about the Galibier Wind River speaker cables:

Hi Shosugi I am currently left with just one Cerious power cable a short one that was connecting my power conditioner. However I just reconfigured things a bit and was forced to remove the power conditioner for space reasons so no Cerious cords in use. I am using and like Furutech PCs. I've not heard of Galibier unless it's the turntable maker? I quite like the cable loom I have now with Kondo, A23, and AN UK.


Hello jond - thank you.  I took a look at your system.  How do you like your Cerious power cable?  I see that you are using Audio Note speaker cables, and Auditorium 23 interconnect.  I used A23 speaker cables several years ago, and replaced them with Galibier Wind River.  Very similar tone and overall balance.  In my current setup, spade connectors work better than the banana/BFA type.

Congrats on your speakers looks like a nice room and setup! I have zero experience with ES speakers sorry but they look great.
