What's so special about the cable to warrant the price?

[debatable] in a very basic sense, it helps to "clean" and deliver stable power to amps/dacs/transfers. some equipment is so highly tuned/responsive that even the most regular of currents will be displayed in the audio signal, i guess due to the eletricitys frequency.

it creates a better black stage, and just cleans up the sound. i've heard some high end systems [10,000$+] that do benefit greatly from power cables, as for headphone rigs, that's up to the discretion [as are speakers] of the listener to warrant a purchase.

Decided to update you lot on my recent record splurge.

Just been to rough trade in london and spent £130 - so much fun.
Stuff in rough trade:
Atmosphere - Sad Clown Bad Winter II
Peter Broderick - Home
Antony and the Johnsons - I Am A Bird Now
Karate - 595
Can - Future Days
Rachels - The Sea And The Bells
Belle And Sebastian - The BBC Sessions
Holy **** - Lovely Allen
iForward Russia! - Give Me A Wall
Handsome Furs - Plague Park
Mogwai - Batcat
Portishead - Magic Doors
and they also gave me a free mug worth £5 for having a nice taste and spending lots of money

Things I am awaiting from eBay:
Tristeza - Are We People
L'augmentation - Negative Walk
David Bowie - Space Oddity
Depeche Mode - See You & Now, This Is Fun
UNGDOMSKULEN - Ordinary Son
Idlewild - No Emotion
Bonnie Prince Billy - Strange Form Of Life
Tchaikovsky - 1812 Overture
Eels - Last Stop This Town
Eels - Hey Man (Now You're Really Living)
and also 19 jazz albums

Things I'm currently bidding on:
Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds - Tupelo
Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds - As I Sat Sadly By Her Side
Eels - Souljacker
Rothko - Storm Cycle


oh yes, this has been expensive.

Favourite out of the stuff so far has got to be Anthony and the Johnsons, highly recommended you give this album a little - he has such an amazingly powerful voice.

I'm not sure. I've read lots of positive static about it, though and at that price it's a no brainer. I'll be able to sell it for 200 easy, should it not work out.

As far as power cables and their effect on a system?

When used on my DAC, the difference among certain power cables is night and day. I can blind A/B confirm the type of cable all day long.

It may be a matter of personal hearing ...

I mean, some folks say they can hear no difference ... but in my case, when used with my DAC ... the right power cable is as important to me as are my main RCA interconnects. Trying different power cables on my head amp doesn't really make a difference to my ear.

A good power cable hugely affects my system in regards mostly to noise floor, detail and soundstage ... certain power cords can also be more "aggressive" sounding than others, pushing the mix out (as though raising the volume a couple db's) or in some cases, depending on the cord, causing a bit of a recessed effect ...

I've done blind A/B's ad nauseum and the difference, say, between my Zu Birth and my Power 1 Furtech is very dramatic.

Anyway ...

I'll post some thoughts on the Violet once I get it next week.

Happy New Year fellas.
