    Default Yes - Close To The Edge - SACD

    I am not that big of a Yes fan, so I only listened to this once. However, I am a big cable fan, so the eligibility is you need over 250 posts, an upgraded power cord on your SACD player, or plan to buy one. I trust nobody will make something up. So, state power cords make a difference, and let us know what power cable you have or want.




    I will pick a random post next weekend.

    In!
    Power cords *do* make a difference.
    My SACD player has a DIY cable from Carol 10/3 bulk copper strand cable with Oyaide IEC and plug ends. Covered in white/black techflex.
    I plan on doing a matching cable for my amp and pre.

    Way nice!

    I'm in please!

    And power cords do make a difference in my system - Pangea cords all round on my components.

    LOVE Yes!! In please but I for the life of me can't remember the brand of cord and it's a real pain in the ass to get at. I'm using a Denon 2910 for SACD right now. I do know the cord is thick as a snake though. I hope I still qualify. If I win I'll pay it forward by karma'ing one of my extra copies of Close To The Edge on vinyl.

    I already have this disc so I'm not in, but awesome karma! By the way, I have a Pepster's power cord, and it made a whopping good difference.

    I use pangea and signal cable power cords for everything except my krell system.

    This may sound crazy. But I own 2 of these SACD's, but neither of them are a numbered version due to stupid happenings from the company I pre-ordered this SACD from originally. YES are my absolute favorite band of all time. If you own a numbered version, I would absolutely like to be in on this Karma please so I can own a numbered copy. If not, I don't need a 3rd copy and please give it to someone else.

    I absolutely believe that power cables make a difference and the one I am currently using on my SACD player (just recently modded to output DSD to my DAC Denon DVD-5910) is the JPS Labs "The Digital AC". Good cable that lowers the noise floor of your transport/CD/SACD player with pretty good dynamics.

    I would love to be in but I can honestly say that my SACD player is so high quality that the power cord doesn't make a difference. Well maybe I need a $5000 power cord?

    Musical Fidelity Kw SACD. F1nut has the same unit. Only 500 made. Was $7500 in 2004.

    In like Flynn !!!! I'm using a PS Audio AC3 on my Marantz SA-8001 and it definitely makes a difference. Thanks for the chance to win a great recording.
    If you can't hear a difference, don't waste your money.

    Not in, only because I already have this great SACD. I pre-ordered it, and think Steve Hoffman did a brilliant job with this remaster. Whoever wins this is going to really enjoy it. Great Karma!

    And yes (pun intended), power cords make a difference. I use the Signal Cable MagicPower Digital Reference with my Marantz SA8004 sacd player!

    Good luck!
    Good music, a good source, and good power can make SDA's sing. Tubes make them dance.

    The only number on it is AFZ 147. Is that what you mean? Does that make it valuable? If so then I guess I win it.

    No, that's just the catalog number for the AF disc. If it is a numbered edition, it should have a sticker on the back somewhere between 1 and (as a guess) 4,000-5,000. AF used to actually imprint the edtion number on the back of the sleeve in gold print. They recently went cheap and just put a sticker on the back with the edition number. And even more recently, they only put a number for the first few thousand.

    Great karma. For what it's worth, I too have 2 unnumbered copies for the same reason as headrott. Power cords absolutely make a difference. I use a Pangea on my oppo.

    You are going to love that Marantz. My only complaint is it doesn't have balanced outputs, which I think I will need down the road. But the thing sounds incredible.
    Good music, a good source, and good power can make SDA's sing. Tubes make them dance.
