Over the last year I have upgraded my power in my two channel system. At this time, it consists of a dedicated 20 amp line, a Shunyata Triton power conditioner, Shunyata Ztron Cobra power cords to the SACD, pre, DAC, and digital file player, two Shunyata Python CX power cords for the amps, a Shunyata SR-Z1 outlet, and the latest addition, a Shunyata Ztron Anaconda power cable between the outlet and the Triton.
I have been very happy with Shunyata gear, since every item has made a noticeable improvement. However, after adding the Anaconda I felt that something was lacking, or missing. The music seemed 'colored'. It was not clear and in harmony. Something was clearly wrong, and then I saw it. The Shunyata SR-71 outlet is grey, but the outlet faceplate is beige.
Whoa!!! Big time color contrast. Obviously, this clash was 'coloring' the music. It appears to be preventing happy electrons, which results in out of harmony music. To fix this snafu I ordered a grey face plate from Amazon, and after installation the music cleared up and is now colorless. The Anaconda is working better than expected, and is bringing detail in the music out to the front. The soundstage is better defined, while the intricacy of music is clear and apparent within the soundstage, everything is in harmony, and the universe is at peace.
