No one is using these cables in their system? 🤔😳

I do have one high current 20A Audioquest Firebird. I cannot compare it to a Dragon since I did not have the chance to test one but compared to the Hurricane which is very popular, I think it is more refined. It's hard to describe but I think it is not as saturated as the Hurricane (in a good way). The Hurricane is a cable that has a very strong personality if I can use that term. Strong bass, nice mids and highs, more 'in your face' so to speak and that is why many people love it because it has a presence that is not subtle at all. When I replaced one Hurricane (I have 2 other Hurricane in my system) with a Firebird, my initial thoughts were: it is more detailed and more 3D soundstage wise. Noise floor has decreased as well which is impressive as I had the impression my system was dead quiet already (have a Shunyata Denali V2). It keeps the benefits of the Hurricane but with a more refined and relaxed presentation. I do realize I'm not very good at describing a sound signature lol. Hopefully that is still helpful. Personally, I did not regret purchasing the Firebird. It is a better cable overall with the only downside that it is VERY stiff.
I have just installed a Silver Cloud XTRM (the new XTRM connectors are mandatory) as a source powercord (Linn Klimax).I have Hurricanes HC in my Pass Labs XA60.8 monoblock.I prefer Silver Cloud for Sources (over Hurricane Sources).Hurricane for amps. Of course Firebirds would be better, but jump in price get them out of my reach.
