    Saw these at CEDIA. Extremely impressive build quality, and when you check the prices, it's even more amazing. AQ really stepped up their power cord game!

    Hi Mike,

    Please let us know your impressions once you’ve burned in these power cords.

    Thanks,

    The Hurricane is a home run. That’s the one to buy in the new series IMO. However, we felt Tornado to be the sweet spot in bang for buck. These cables are dead quiet and have such great presence. In the store, I’m going with AQ for power and MIT for signal in one room and all Shunyata Sigma power and signal in the other. In the third room, I switch between Siltech (for Avantgarde) and Ansuz (for Harbeth).

    Re: New AQ Power Cables Incoming...

    Any observations on Hurricane compared to Shunyata Alpha or Sigma?

    Am I correct that Hurricane is an amp/power conditioner cord and not really designed for source gear?

    You’ll get me in trouble either way! The Hurricane can be used on sources or amps.

    They’re both amazing. Very system dependent. The Shunyata has great body, the AQ has great presence.
