Best I have used. They are very stiff though. Alot better than the Top of the line NBS I used to have. That said.

The FIM gold PC retails for $1200. I own two king cobra's, two cobra's and will have another FIM gold PC soon.Is the FIM is as good as the king cobra? Yes. In your system it could make your KC sound like a $30 PC. I could live with either one. The FIM is almost half the price as the new king cobra. If I were starting over I would opt for the FIM. Either PC will bring out the full potential of your system. These PCs have made the biggest improvement I have ever heard in an audio system.
I tried s handful of ower cables, but none extracted the sonic improvements of the FIMs. I have "formed" two into my system for mono blocks. Ten day to two week break-in period for much of it's realization. Can't say enough about improvement through power cord upgrades, especially the FIMs. I retained the Fatboy powering my preamp. It is also an excellent piece. For digital, the Electraglide PT has suited well. I have not sampled Shunyatas, but all feedback leads me to believe there is no need. The FIMs may be stiff, but with patience they shaped beautifully. Top-notch product.
Brulee, thanks. To answer your question, yes I have heard a systme composed of the Marantz SACD player, the new Talons Khorus speakers and Tube Research gear using all FIM IC's and SpkrCbl.. The sound..breathtaking. The IC's and Speaker cable are as capable as the PC's, but be warned...they are very very stiff. That shouldn't be to big of a problem because once you bend them to shape, I really don't see the need to continue moving them. I am starting out with the PC's to my amps and pre because that is where I noticed the largest effect. Best regards, Mike

Hi Rayhall. FIM PCs have a wide, deep soundstage. Transparency is the best I have heard. Images have a solidity that has to be heard. Detailing is incredible. Listning to these PCs is an experiance. Could be the best upgrade you could ever make. A review of these PCs is not enough. You audition them you will buy them.
