    AudioQuest Niagra 1000 - What the hell are you waiting for?

    Actually I wasnít really comparing or hoping to replace Denali with Niagra. I had Denali for a few months when I bought the Niagra because I needed a few extra outlets. Just for fun, I plugged in my integrated and DAC for a few hours after I logged some break-in hours on the Niagra.

    Iím also not really looking to see if Denali is 5x better because itís 5x more expensive. In this hobby, it just doesnít work that way.

    But for the money, the Niagra is well worth it. But it wonít compete with next level well designed conditioners.

    Fair enough. I doubt in my system I could appreciate the next level of conditioner. I do believe that the Niagara is giving me a very nice boost in a range that I can afford.

    I am continually amazed at just how resolving the system is though. I do not feel that my loft library (the only place that my system truly fits in our house) is large enough to house a larger system anyway ....

    I'm using the 1000 also. I'm going to upgrade to the 5000 once I get a new amp I think. I've heard the difference and it's a fair amount. I have had it up against my old SR Galeleo power cell 10 with their top cord as well as a few others. I do like the Niagara best for tonality and realistic soundstage. I really love Garth's gear so far. His next products will blow us away in the same way his cords are.

    There are lot's of nice conditioners on the market right now. I've found that often times it depends on your own listening room and the quality of your electrical.
