I'm now comparing a Cardas golden ref.vs.Synergystic Research t1 power cables on my cdp(Sonic Frontiers cd-1).Here's what I came too.The Cardas edges it out in soundstage depth and over all tonal balance with better spacial cues,Maybe a hint more warmth,also the Cardas had a darker background.The Synergistic Research was more upfront and gave me more of an up close and personal view to the soundstage.Almost like being in row 1 verses middle of the hall..The Synergistic slightly compressed the image height but made voices seem more holographic.The synergistic also was faster with a sweeter top end.These are both very good Pc's for the money.Like anything theres trade off's and you have to decide whats important.I like to try the SR t-2 with active sheilding to see If I get more depth back in the soundstage.Has anyone else had any experience with these two pc's
I have tried the Cardas GR and SR T2 on a digital source and processor in my second system. The SR T2 was sweeter on the top end, provided much more clarity, was faster and had a slightly quieter background. YMMV. Good luck in your search.
When I tried Cardas power cords in my system, it took the system to an all time low. I never had such poor results with any power cord...and that was breaking it in for months. That is true for my system, yours may be different...every cable likes or dislikes a system differently.
