Cable elevators by F1nut

I ordered six of Jesse’s cable supports, and installed them today. At first I thought this would be sufficient to replace my Shunyata supports, but I ended up using both of them. They are being used to elevate my power cables, mostly under the rack, that power the amps, and the source gear. I have three power conditioners, so they each get a cable from the wall, and the amp power conditioners have another power cable to the amp. Essentially, this makes five power cables on the floor.

I ordered these since I felt they were a great cosmetic match with the Denali 2000T amp power conditioners, and they are. Whether the sound is better or not, I can’t really say, but it does look a lot better.

I guess that demonstrates the philosophy of cable deniers who say because we like the appearance of our cables that tricks us into thinking the sound is better is just as wrong as all their other nonsense reasons to deny cables matter.

They certainly are well made, and solid. My Shunyata supports are light weight plastic. The only negative issue for me is that the support opening isn’t quite wide enough for the power cables. However, they would work great for my Shunyata Venom speaker cables in the HT. Still, they do support the cables, just not as snug a fit if the Cable seated better in the support. No complaint here, just an observation, and Jesse did mention they might not be big enough.

Anyway, for those who didn’t take advantage of the offer I can only say it’s your loss. :)

    Looks good

    Bud, the opening at the top is 15/16". I checked the diameter of your cables, which are supposed to be 1", so I thought they might be a snug fit requiring them to be pressed in a bit. Are your cables larger than 1"?

  • He missed a hair or two, but other than that looks good.

    Jesse, I didn’t do any measuring or try pressing them in. They are fine as is, but I will try that tomorrow.

    One of the big benefits of elevating the cables is being able to clean under the rack. It seems every time I post a picture I see dust I missed. :)

    When I was messing around under the rack trying to clean, and put the elevators in, I was listening to the stereo. Then the left amp made a noise, and shut off. Oh oh. Better shut both down, and finish. Fortunately, everything is fine. I would have been P.O.ed if I broke something while doing that. Especially since it was early, and I haven’t had any beer. LOL.

    Serious question, do you think the cables will require a partial "re-break in" process, since they have been moved to install the risers?

    I've heard that if possible you should avoid moving power, speaker, and other interconnects after installing and breaking in, to avoid disrupting the surface of the copper on the wires. Any truth to this?

    I got a chance to see these at Skip's and while I can't speak as to whether or not they offer any sonic improvements, I can say they are well made and look very nice. I'd probably buy some just for the looks, but most of my speaker cables are behind the audio racks. Great craftsmanship by Jesse.

    They really did look awesome with the setup Skip had in his upper room with Halen's speakers!
