I'm using a Shunyata Venom 20 amp HC on a Hegel H200. Had to get an adapter but like very much what it did for the sound. Previously, was using a Cullen Crossover v1. The Cullen is a well-built electricity conductor but to my ears the Venom HC is doing something more...reducing noise, perhaps. At $175 + $10 for a generic 20 amp cable>>15 amp IEC adapter (sounded the same as a Venom adapter after burn in) I think it is a great value.
Thanks all for your input. I ended up purchasing an Audioquest Thunder 2m power cable to test the waters and so far it has made a positive difference.
The biggest difference has been with the Hegel's DAC, which sounds more present and dynamic. This is most noticeable with a better bass response and increased detail. It's not night and day, but enough of a positive change that I'll be keeping the Audioquest for a while before experimenting any further with power cords.
