As far as I know, a Swiss citizen, there are no Ensemble dealers in the USA. Just one guy in South California importing the product. Maybe he is just economically scared and, therefor, the "bargains." Caveat emptor!

Zurichmensch, perhaps I confused the term 'dealer' with importer. There are a few of these so called importers in the US. AAudio.com must be the Southern California vendor you are speaking of. Do you honestly believe that these folks would make strong claims for Ensemble cables due to being "economically" scared? That seems ridiculous to me.
I've read as much is available on-line about Ensemble and most claim it to be a superior cable and non system dependent.
Have you actually heard these cables or are you basing your judgement and speculation only on the fact that you are a Swiss citizen?
Hi, I've purchased power cords and power conditioning products from Brian at Artistic Audio, the Ensemble importer/dealer in SoCal you are talking about, as well as used Ensemble digital cables (2) and a set of Ensemble Megaflux speaker cable from Audiogon. All these products are excellent, in my opinion, though I'm no expert in power conditioning stuff, the only power upgrade I had previously done was dedicated circuits in my listening room. There are occasionally some used Ensemble for sale on audiogon, and Brian offers great prices on the new stuff. Start out w/something small and if you like it try some more. I think the stuff is great and reasonably priced even new.
