I bought one of these to try after reading the background of Patrick Cullen and his father having a long history of making audiophile power cables. After all, the price was quite low for a quality power cable made by someone of their experience. I may be more sensitive to high frequency noise in a system than others, so I am always looking for ways to lower the noise floor. I did a lot of comparison testing with my previous favorites, PS Audio xStream Statement, and xStream Plus, between my power conditioner and CD player,Modwright modified Denon 3910 with tube output and outboard tube rectified PSU. I personally like the PS Audio cables very much, but I found myself pleasantly surprised and enjoying this Cullen power cable very much. I would agree with everything I read in the above review with the exception that mine had a snug fitting connector. A few months later when I needed two more power cables, I bought Cullen's. This time, instead of the red copper connections, which sound better than the nickle plated on PS Audio's, they came with his latest gold plated copper connectors, both ends. I have to say, after burning-in(which I did before trying them)that the gold plated copper connectors are even better sounding, smoother sweeter high vocals and highs in general. Overall, they are the most pleasant power cables that I have tried. The music I am hearing now is what I have been looking for, for a long time. The cost of these make them a no-brainer to try, at least one for your front end. Now I plan to replace all my power cables in my system.
