    Maybe in your part of the world, but not here. If I want to demo Shunyata I must buy it first.

    No. I'm trying to understand why most people buy the T which is the same electrically as the S, but considerably more expensive.

    Re: Upgrading Audioquest

    Looks more than likely and it's only $1000 more expensive here.

    Re: Upgrading Audioquest

    Well yeah, I much prefer the look of the T, but hard to justify the price difference for the eye candy version. For me anyway.

    Have I understood this correctly. When using a Denali you don't need a NR version power cable to the wall, or to the connected devices?

    Re: Upgrading Audioquest

    I suspect it would depend on who you ask. I say get what is sufficient to do the job.

    The "S" version lacks the footers and the thick bottom plate of the "T". (And maybe some of the internal damping as well - I'm not sure about that.) The "S" relies on the buyer to put it on a good audio rack that will take the place of the physical isolation built into the "T". If you don't, it won't sound as good as the "T". They advise AGAINST putting an "S" directly on the floor, the way you can a "T".

    Shunyata itself says that the NR (noise reduction) versions of its power cords are unnecessary for the Denali line. (Between the Denali & the wall.) They recommend using the EF versions as they are less expensive. (Unfortunately, that info came out too late for me...)

    If I understand correctly, Shunyata recommends using NR cords between components & the Denali for best results, as this puts an initial stage of filtering as close to the component as possible.
