    Re: Shunyata Sigma NR v2 power cord

    Puma Cat, thyname,
    Thanks for the comments. I have 20 days for audition so I will continue to use it for awhile. After 2 days of playing about 5 hours each day it is better. Still not impressed with the bass definition.

    Although I am a Hurricane/Niagara user, I agree with Puma. You are dealing with a power system here where each manufacturer's component parts are designed to complement each other, not someone else's. You might want to try the Sigma plugged into the wall rather than the Niagara.

    GSOphile,
    I am plugging the Shunyata into the wall and then into the Niagara 7000.
    I must say thus far I am not impressed. I am getting sort of a soft squishy sound. In other words the dynamic bite is not there.

    For long term satisfaction and system synergy.

    It might be best to stick with an AQ cable if you stay with the Niagara.

    Shunyata PC if you go for a Shunyata distributor.

    That's what I was suggesting you not do, mixing apples and oranges. Please plug it directly into the wall.

    Re: Shunyata Sigma NR v2 power cord

    20 days eval was given. I think just keep it plugged in and let current pass through it 24x7. The Sigma XC is a fantastic and well balanced cable with no filtering so system-compatibility should be high.

    I don’t share the panic, take it easy and let it relax into its new position.

    agree 100% as well. ---tried the AQ Dragon w/ the Everest. did not work well together at all.
    now, the omega? --sheesh. more to come on it.

    stick w/ the products that a product is voiced with (pre & amp, AC cord & distributor, etc).

    Re: Shunyata Sigma NR v2 power cord

    Ok, guys I agree. But I really do like the Sigma V2 interconnects, so I was hoping the V2 Sigma power cord would provide the same magic.

    Re: Shunyata Sigma NR v2 power cord

    if you had an everest it might. ---but frankly, having gone through the sigma, dragon, and now omega on the everest, they really should just package the everest + omega.

    the others aren't close.

    Re: Shunyata Sigma NR v2 power cord

    Puma Cat,
    I disagree. The Sigma XC is just not compatible with the Audioquest Niagara 7000. Plain and simple. Two different technologies. I was warned... It probably sounds very good with other Shunyata power conditioners.

    I would however like to try a Sigma V2 NR power cord on my Lumin X1 since the Sigma V2 interconnects worked so good from the Lumin X1 direct to my tube amps.

    That’s a really good cable for the X1.

    Re: Shunyata Sigma NR v2 power cord

    So my dealer was kind enough to send me a Sigma V2 NR power cord to audition.
    I have been using it for a couple of weeks 24/7.

    What I can conclude is the Shunyata V2 NR and the XC version is not a good match with the Audioquest Niagara 7000 power conditioner. The music becomes mushy.

    I did however try the Sigma V2 with my Lumin X1. At first it exhibited the same mushy sound but after a few more days it started opening up. (So much for no need to break in?)

    Today, I now think it is a good match for the Lumin. And I may pursue purchasing one.
