    Re: Niagara 7000 vs Denali 6000T - my experience

    I found that, despite the advice from Gryphon to plug the Diablo into the wall, I got slightly better sound, particularly low bass, by plugging the Diablo into the AQ Niagara 5000. There was even more improvement when I plugged my Lumin into the Niagara 5000 compared to direct into the wall. The biggest improvement was plugging my router and NAS into the 5000. The aggregate improvement with everything plugged into the 5000 was substantial.

    Caveat is that I only tested the 5000. I got a great price and went lazy and didn’t compare others. I wish I had now. Not because I regret the decision but because I was impatient and it would have been fun to test other products.

    I also took considerable comfort from the advice from fellow AS members re the AQ 5000. This forum is awesome.

    Has anyone done a direct comparison of the AudioQuest Niagara 7000 and 5000? If so, please describe the differences.

    Thanks,
    Ken

    I'm also interested. The review linked below is about the only thing I've seen.

    I have both and compared both. They are sooooo close. The 7000 seems to be a little more dynamic and ever so slightly blacker backgrounds. The 7000 has the Dielectric-Biased AC Isolation Transformers, the 5000 does not.

    If you have ANY tube piece, I recommend the 5000. The Dielectric-Biased AC Isolation Transformers can create a very soft buzz when a tube component is plugged into it. I mean, you have to get down on your hands and knees and ear and put your ear up to it.

    Using my new line noise analyzer (I forget the name), the wall outlet measured around ~650mv of noise. The 7000 measured 4mv and the 5000 measured 5mv. My new line noise analyzer measures the whole band. Some poo-pooed the Entech as being “ban limiting”, so I got this one.

    Hope that helps.
