Nope.

Nice to hear. I’m hoping for a Schitty Christmas and if that ends up being the case, the 14s will save me a couple of bucks.

In my case it is replaced two Isotek Extrem by two Sigmas, and two Isotek Elite by two Alfa. The change, for me, has been extraordinary, I guess the price is much higher.

I was playing around with an app on my iPhone that included a Magnetometer. Interesting that when I took measurements over the Shunyata power cord, it actually measures no more than the ambient room reading of 42.77 uT. Reading the other power cords I have at hand is almost double at 74 uT when driving the same component. Even the interconnects in that same component, in this case the Bryston BHA-1, read much higher at 61uT.

Yes, the Shunyata cord is very well-shielded. It prevents EM noise from getting our, and noise from other components or cords getting in.

How is it sounding?

Very good actually. Improved quite a bit over the last few days.

Ok Serge........I've waited till I got settled in with the new 'toys', got Momma qualified as to switching out cables without destroying my kit and here's what I've come up with 'so far'.

The comparison was done blind with my wife making the PC swap while I was out of the room. From my listening chair I cannot see the PC to my Denali 6000. I had no idea which PC (Shyunata or Signal Cable) was inserted to start, came in listened to a couple of pieces I know very well (Mangione's 'Children of Sanchez' and BeeGie Adair's 'Escape to New York'), left the room, cables switched, listened again.

This whole experiment took a couple of hours and with that I report back that I heard no difference, zero, zip, nada. What's interesting is my wife, knowing all along what cable was in but not really knowing what the comparison was trying to determine could not discern anything different as well. When I told her of the price differential is when she proclaimed that, 'we' are all a bunch 'wackos'.

I couldn't argue with her .........

Just for kicks, you should have had her add the stock cord into the comparison.

No could do, for there is none with the Denali.
