On my system, the blunting of dynamics by the Denali is obvious. I'll likely keep it this way, with the front end running off the Denali and the monos direct to the wall. Thanks again.
Great find! Yes I can imagine those DAG amps would not be happy plugged into anything but directly to the wall. Amazing system by the way, those Utopias are lightening quick.

Thanks. They're quick but only when fed gobs of power (the Maestro is an inefficient speaker) and now that I've done some more listening, it's clear the Denali was choking the life out of the M400s. Performance has jumped considerably across the board with the M400s direct to the wall with Shunyata King Cobra CX PCs.

Putting the amp back to the wall helped some but not completely and of course I lose some of the Denali magic.

Has anyone else experienced this? Iím going to try moving my preamp to the HC bank next. As a FYI Iím using an Alpha HC cord from wall to Denali.
Try connecting your amp to the regular outlets. The high current outlets probably have the same electronic devices which limit current inrush (during turn-on) as are included internally in the amp. My Levinson 532H sounds better this way.
