Oh, something is going to happen. Wanted to order a simple NRG-4 and my dealer told me, that AQ is out of stock and they will bring something new this month.
Curios... Anyone with more information?

Default Be Careful when ordering!!!!

Th a Dragon Source is for "Source" equipment only. The SOURCE is for Source equipment only. NOT meant for power conditioners, amps, it is for items that need more power. The Dragon HC is needed. I was told I would not be happy with the standard HC!!! USED for high power application. Audioquest has delay shipment on Dragon HC as they are out of ends!!!

Default Got the Hurricanes today!!

They are composed of 3 braided cables and make for a bulky assembly. They are being used in my ARC phono and preamp. Connected to a Niagara 7000. I hear an immediacy to notes and the music. Bass is more present and assumes more to be in the composition.

Very nice - but wait till you get Hurricanes or Dragon HC's on your amps! Between preamp, wall/7000, and tube monoblocks, the biggest improvement I heard over an NRG-1000 baseline was the amps.

GREAT system, btw.
