    @mrbiron You need any more power cables? You can make your cables match your speakers lol

    @scubalab get you a upgraded power cable for that new amp of yours :smile:

    PS looks like a good deal as the newer versions start at like 250.....

    "Zu Mission-Power Mk.II builds upon its legendary predecessor [Mk.I] by significantly increasing immunity to electromagnetic interference and static. This is accomplished through the addition of state-of-the-art nano-engineered high conductance carbon shielding."

    Seems like a common theme amongst these power cord makers is to offer an 'upgrade' from the original which typically touts more/better shielding which, from what I have read, can actually be detrimental to SQ in the first place :^ /
    I've had unshielded on my amp and preamp for quite a while, just on faith, but have recently also gone to unshielded on my DAC with positive results.

    I just picked up 2 Zu Event MK1 to try on my DAC and streamer. Got them on the zu eBay outlet for a steal. Come stock with watt gate evo connectors, I don’t see how these could be bad? Worth a try that’s for sure.

    Just be careful. A nice pair of Zu power cables acquired at a great price I honestly blame for accelerating my descent down the rabbit hole. First cable change to really open my ears to all the possibilities. I love and hate those guys at Zu.
