I have WW Electra 5^2s and don't know what distinguishes them from the 7 except, as Stephen notes, for the replacement of Composilex by Composilex II.

If it will help--and you don't mind a comparison with the 5^2 as well as waiting a few days until after it arrives--I've just ordered a Venom HC to see how it stacks up against the WW running from the wall to the Blue Circle power conditioner in my bedroom system. My Sonographe amp's power cord is hardwired in, so I can't do a direct shootout using the amp.

Depending on how the comparison goes, I'll share my impressions either here or in the Shunyata forum.

I look forward to reading the results of your comparison.

I apologize for raising expectations, but, after giving it some thought based on my experience with my existing Wireworld lineup, I've changed my plans and cancelled the Venom HC order. I plan instead to compare the WW Electra 7 to my Electra 5^2 to determine what, if any, differences I can hear between them. Once I've done the comparison, I'll post my impressions in a separate thread here on the WW board.
