    Not familiar with those cords and differences. PC's have made a difference throughout my system but the best improvement was use to my phono stage and digital sources.

    Hope everyone is having a good weekend.

    I think the main question will be which cable to use with the Triton - Alpha NR V1 or Alpha Etron HC.

    Alpha NR V1 is 8awg. While Alpha HC is 2 x 10awg.
    So I will try feeding the Triton with the Alpha HC first - as it should give more current flow.

    The next obvious thing will be to use as many of the newer NR cables as possible. With priority to pre-amp and source components.

    If you guys have any thoughts - let me know.

    I would try each cable. If they both sound the same then use either. Otherwise use which one sounds better.

    After testing - best is Alpha HC to Triton.
    Alpha NR to source, pre, amp.
    When Alpha NR is feeding the Triton - feels like some energy is lost and the overall experience doesn't have the same impact.

    Thanks for the help gents.

    Exactly and have someone else do the switching in and out so you don't have any 'sight bias' ...........
