Default Audioquest power cord

Just added to the order, a Hurricane 1 meter 15amp for my CD. MY dealer gives me a prior agreed percentage discount. Got tired of email ping pong. LONG relationship.

One man's I'm assured opinion within his system and I'm sure it's totally excellent.

Before making a it's this or nothing statement...I don't know. Ever heard any PranaWire cables? Just a thought and no disrespect intended.

I am in search of 4 PCs for power conditioner, preamp, amp and DAC.

I have been looking at the Furutech S55 and DPS4 cables.

https://zenwaveaudio.com/product/fur...d-enhancement/
https://zenwaveaudio.com/product/ds-4-power-cable/

The 6ft S55 comes in at $1120 and the 2m DPS4 $1670 with FI50 series connectors.

Any other recommendations around this price point?

I don't know if you had auditioned the Audioquest Hurricane, but that's probably the best power cable I've heard in that price point. It's a very refined sounding cable. I love Furutech cables and I think the Audioquest would be a good audition alongside the ones you mentioned that Zen Wave Audio builds.

Nice setup
Sounds like a lot of cash to clean up your cable problems
I make my own power/rca/ and speaker cables and as I get older I can’t hear as much of a difference between a 1000.00 sub cable and one I made myself. But I know that there is a difference and will stand my ground with people saying ( well my 100 dollar speaker cables sound just like your 1000 dollar speaker cable. )
But I can say that I can hear and feel what a proper made cables can do over factory junk cables. I used to make a lot of speaker cables out of pure silver , but now it cost so much for the silver wire, cotton covers and the teflon jackets that I can no longer afford to make them, so I’ve found other methods to making them
Would love to see photos of your cable updates as you get them done

See what Ivan can do for you with the WW Silver Eclipse 7. Am very pleased with their performance in my system.

Nothing against any of the cables mentioned here, including the well made Wireworld. But I auditioned eight power cables for my c-j ART 150 amplifier and the Hurricane was heads and shoulders above the others including Nordost and Audience at about $2500 per. AQ's Thunder is nice but can't compare to Hurricane. Don't know what they have done but it's amazing. Not wanting to spend Hurricane money I noticed Audioquest did Axponia high end demo with a suite of the Tornado cords so that's what I ordered. I'm sure Hurricane is better but not by much. So, you pays your money and takes your choice.

High Fidelity Cables top of the line PRO cord.
I'm anxious to see what kind of sound/video improvements I get, feeding it into my High Fidelity Hemisphere power conditioner.
Everything is plugged into the conditioner, including my Kuro plasma TV.
I'll post my impressions when I receive it!
