Hello everybody! Which speakers to choose for my Unison Research combo? I am thinking of Diapason Adamantes III or Martin Logan smaller hybrids. Any opinions?
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.
Clare, Andy ??? Anybody ???
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+

Oh wow some one else with a Unison Research amp! I have the SR1.
What? I am sorry, just You and me on this forum?
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...

Do you have older Concertino's or new model?
Andrew, what do you think about cable choice for Unison combo? Your personal opinion, please. Sorry for bother You.
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 tried both of them and older is better than new model (my opinion). Sorry. I want something better. Money is not issue but I don't want to spend sky high money. About 3000 Euros.
Andrew, You get me wrong. I am very happy with my cables. What I asked You is opinion about my cable choice, of course if you audition them. These cables are very expensive. Sorry.
Btw, I listened to Chord Co. cables, Signature IC and Signature speaker cable and I found them very, very calm for my Combo. Very nice cables but...too calm.
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.
