    Default Power Cord Recommendation inspired by EarlyB thread

    I did not want to put this in Early's thread and decided to start a new one.

    For those that want to hear a quality PC for what would probably cost you about 10 bucks to audition....I highly recommend these. These are built by my dealer who is just awesome to deal with and he will let you audition them for 30 days with a money back guarantee. The only thing that it will cost you is to ship them back. They worked very well on my tube amps. For the amount of work that goes into them, they are a total steal.

    I found them to work a lot better than my PS Audio Statement
    I have also auditioned the Black Sand Silver MKV (a highly regarded PC) and these sound a lot bigger.

    With these cables my soundstage got bigger (probably due to increasing dynamics), greater separation of individual instruments, a blacker background, less upper frequency edge, and an overall warmer, more accurate sound.

    Good Luck,
    Mike

    I had the Silver MKV..with the wattgate ends and they did not work for me at all. On the positive the background was blacker and they did have a warming effect but the soundstage just collapsed..probably due to killing my dynamics. My system is pretty dynamic and 3D even when I had the Lsi15's. Peaks in the music would jump out at you and engulf you but when I incorporated the BSS MKV the sound just stayed at the speakers. The Violets are supposed to be more in your face and neutral but I did not try them. The MKV lean to the warm side which is ironic because that is not something that we generally associate with silver.

    With the PC's I linked the soundstage is huge. They actually increased my dynamics. Each note just sounds sweeter, and less edgy, more accurately representing the instrument. I did not have an edgy sounding system at all when I had the Lsi15's but since I got the Ushers the edge has been there (I hate digital edge). This is the result of the Usher being far more detailed and revealing. They showed things in my system that the Polk's did not. However, the Thunderbirds got rid of all that edge.

    Unfortunately, I have other financial priorities and returned them to my dealer. It has not been the same since. Patience.

    Good luck,
    Mike
