    Hi Ctsooner,

    I did Dragon Source Power Cords on just my Select DAC and it made a monstrous improvement over the Hurricane Source Power Cords. The rest of my power cords are Hurricanes. The system...

    Mike,

    That was awful when that happened to those beautiful speakers of yours. I would have been out exactly then too.

    Re: Power Cords: 2019 State of the Art?

    It could be due to power line noise. This can offset the favorable impact of an improvement in power cords. Invest in a Voltage/EMI meter and take some measurements. I found the results to be...

    Hi Kuoppis,

    If you’ve found great sounding silver cables then hold onto them. In my experience, they are few and far between.

  16. Re: Inducing clarity: Cardas Clear Beyond interconnects

    Hi Mark,

    Yes, I did switch over to silver conductor cables. It wasnít a conscious plan. I purchased the Vandersteen M7-HPA Mono Amps and they came with proprietary fixed length silver speaker...
  17. Re: Inducing clarity: Cardas Clear Beyond interconnects

    Of all the copper conductor cables I’ve listened to and owned, I feel the Cardas Clear and Clear Beyond are amongst the very best. The quality of the copper utilized is a step above the typical OCC...
  18. Re: Inducing clarity: Cardas Clear Beyond interconnects

    I used to own Cardas ICs and speaker cables. They had a wonderfully natural sound and build quality was second to none.

    Congrats and enjoy!

    Re: Whispers of a Magico M9 Coming Soon?

    I think one of the reasons the Magico M9’s will be so big and heavy is because you will not need to purchase QSubs for them. Think Von Schweikert Ultra 11’s for example. Built in 15 inch powered...

    I really like the Ekornes Stressless Classic Recliners. I may eventually purchase one of these. They make some lower back versions for those concerned about acoustic interference.
