    Those are very useful
    I have a coupe also.
  • Changing all PC's and IC's to ZU Audio.
    2 channel: Anthem 225 Integrated amp; Parasound Ztuner; TechnicsTT SL1350; Vincent PHO-8 phono pre; Marantz CD6005 spinner; Polk SDA2BTL's; LAT International speaker cables, ZU Mission IC's and power cables all into a PS Audio Dectet Power center.

    Other; M10 series II, M7C's, Hafler XL600 amp, RB-980BX, Parasound HCA-1500 amp , P5 preamp, all in storage. All vintage Polk have had crossover rebuilds and tweeter upgrades.

    The best way to predict the future is to invent it.

    It is imperative that we recognize that an opinion is not a fact.

    Imagine making politics your entire personality.

    I've said it before, and I'll say it again: KEF and NAD have great synergy together.

    Found these little guys to help with power cable routing (Pangea AC9).

    Those look profoundly audiophile unapprovable - despite a sticker that says Cables Online. ;)

    Obligatory "only as strong as your weakest link" comment. I personally wouldn't want to use these with a nice aftermarket power cord, for fear that I was degrading the performance of said cord by having something inferior in the path.

    Even I would agree -- although that kind of thinking might lead some more heretical minds to think about the wire that is inside their hifi components... or even (gasp) the PC board traces.

    I will stop now. :)

    Hehe. I wondered that too. But they’re stout. The guts look comparable to some of the IEC sockets in my rigs. Gonna take em for a spin! :smile:

    So I hooked it up to the office rig, via variable line level outputs from the Peachtree. Worked for a hot minute, was getting ready to tune it a bit and it stopped. Power light remains on. What?

    I then decided to connect it to my living room rig via a Rocketfish wireless sub transmitter (currently the Polk DSWi600 is there), via LFE, and same thing. Worked for a hot minute, then nothing.

    I contacted the seller, and he is going to reach out to SVS tomorrow, since it's still under warranty! Ugh, but hopes for a good outcome! :smile:

    Today I cleaned my TriangleART turntable and my Carver Statements in preparation of the Pass X0.2 returning home on Tuesday. On Monday, the Pass X1 departs for it's new home in Texas.
    The Gear... Carver "Statement" Mono-blocks, Arcam AVR21, Oppo UDP-203 4K Blu-ray player, Sony XBR70x850B 4k, Polk Audio Legend L800 with height modules, L400 Center Channel Polk audio AB800 "in-wall" surrounds. Marantz MM7025 stereo amp. Yamaha CD-S2100 SACD Player.

    In retirement...TriangleArt Reference SE with Walker Precision Motor Drive,
