The Chris VenHaus VH Flavor 4 Power Cord uses four Teflon insulated conductors of 12 AWG stranded bare copper to form a total equivalent of a 9 AWG. The four conductors are twisted into a star-quad geometry, encased in a vibration-dampening Teflon sheath and spiraled against the twist of the internal conductors, and have been deep cryogenically treated.
In my opinion, the VH Flavor 4 Power Cord is excellent, and can compete with the big boys at a fraction of their cost.
When I introduced the Flavor 4 Power Cord into my system, I powered my most system-dependent components (transport, Dac, preamp) first. I immediately noticed the power cord is extremely quiet and gave a black background. The microdynamics were more greatly detailed. The entire bass became tighter, cleaner, and deeper. The soundstage became a bit wider with better imaging; but more importantly, the soundstage moved to the rear and became deeper. Another feature I found impressive was the absolute lack of audible bandwidth limiting.
In conclusion, I realize that audiophile componentry is system-dependent, and what sounds good in one system does not work well for another. In this case, the Flavor 4 Power Cord sounded very good in my tube and solid-state systems. I’m sure you can find power cords that sound better, but at what price?Associated gear Click to view my Virtual SystemSimilar products
