    This looks fairly interesting to me. Anyone have any experience with one of these?

    So the AQ Niagara 1000 has arrived. Hopefully I can get it in place this evening. Been looking forward to it!

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

    Very short first listening session.... busy day at work, so I was beat and fell a sleep. (of course Cheryal had some fun with that )....

    From a short listen though, very open, very very quite background. I noticed some more subtle details.... seems like the bass is a bit more subdued at this point, but I know there is definitely some breaking in to happen. AQ actually mentions that it will sound good out of the box but will continue to improve as it breaks in.

    Thanks Randy...Keep us posted with progress. I might be interested as well. the
    Niagara 5000 is a bit out of my reach at this point as well.

    BTW did the 1000 replace anything or is this a new addition?
