Thank you. I am running 3 Shunyata Hydras in the main system and with the Shunyata power cords, I have an extremely quiet system. I have no desire to change. The only thing I want is an Acrolink digital cable to go from my Esoteric player, to the built in dac on the McIntosh preamp. I am using a inexpensive Wireworld starlight 7 (red one) on the connection. I think the cable retailed for 80.00 but it does sound good. I think the Acrolink will be better.
I believe its a matter of personality and personal taste.
Some of us get the upgrade itch and wonder what a new improved product will do. Like many other power cord manufacturers, not all of the newer power cords are necessarily an improvement, however, if you upgraded a power cord to a higher level it could create a quieter background allowing more details come through, or widen your soundstage. One never knows until they try, and if you are happy, save your money and enjoy the music.
Yes, I don't want to start down another path were a 1k upgrade turns in to 4 or 5k of upgrades. I might just try a loaner Venom PS8 with a Defender to see how that compares to the transparent power bank 8.
By the time I save up 4k for a Hydra, I think I would rather put that in a higher level digital source.
