The Zu Mother has some remarkable qualities: it's tight, fast, clear, with razor sharp transients-- all the best attributes of silver construction. In my audio system (largely solid state), I liked its clarity but ultimately found I prefered Shunyatas. I suspect it blends best with somewhat darker systems and/or tube systems, not so well with my Audio Research equipment. I love the Shunyata cords, and currently use a Black Mamba on my cd player, a Sidewinder Gold on my preamp, and a BMI WHale ELite MK II on my amp. The Mother does a splendid job running the PS Audio Ultimate Outlet into which I plug my video equipment: it provides a stunningly sharp picture.
