Very good cable - use it then disconnect the sheilding to see just how effective it is - very noticeable.Worked as well as anything else on mu Nu Vista integrated and does very well on the current owners Krell.
I found a use for that cord. Mine is the X2 Master Coupler version. Use it to drive a hard wired multi outlet power strip I made with IEC inlet, when I need the extra drive. Sometime that powers the MPC that are dual mono configured on my Syn Res Resolution Ref speaker cables X2. Otherwise, the cord is as chang descibes. I defy anyone to build a better speaker cable than Res Ref X2. I build ALL my own cabling, but that speaker wire is something special. I shouldn't be so harsh on the powercord cause it really has the thermonic thing going on. And if you are all SS, could just be the ticket.
