    Re: Audio Research 160M

    Any speaker hiss with the AG/ARC combo when there's no music, and if so how far away are you when you hear it?

    Nada. None. Zippo out of the midrange horn. Just tested for you as Iím listening right now. Stuck my ear right next to the tweeter horn and very faint tube rush is noticeable at less than 6 inches. Over 6 inches and you canít hear it.

    Re: Audio Research 160M

    What power cables have you guys tried on the 160Mís?

    Are you plugging them into a conditioner or straight into the wall?

    Re: Audio Research 160M

    When I first put the ARC 160 monoís into my system they were plugged directly into a 20a dedicated circuit via Transparent XL power cables.
    Recently I added an Audioquest Niagara 5000 power conditioner. It is connected to the wall with an Audioquest Hurricane HC power cable. The Transparent XL power cables are now plugged into 1 of the high current outlets banks on the Niagara 5000. The other high current duplex powers each woofer amplifier on my Avantgarde Duo XD speakers.

    Re: Audio Research 160M

    When my 160s finally arrive, I plan to use a Shunyata Denali 2000t, with a pair of Analog Alpha cables. The Denali will be connected to a dedicated 20 amp circuit with a Sigma analog cable. Of course, I’ll ultimately listen without the Denali inline, but it has been an improvement with my Ref75.
