I saw you use Shunyata powercabels. A few weeks ago I was at a show they played with Pass and the Aurender. Cables were from Shunyata. Mannnnnnn voices and instruments were all much too big. This I always hate so much at audio shows. Most of those people have not enough knowledge about proportions of instruments and voices are in real.
I use the Onkyo PR-SC 5509 with Audessey Pro. I developed my own way of measurement with Audessey Pro. Different positions and hight. The result is superior to the way Audessey does it. My own way ( and no I will no give this information) is a lot more dynamic than Audessey achieves. Focus is better and I can adapt the wide and depth of the stage. The difference with the XP-20 ( which I own for 2 years) is stunning. Deeper en wider. Instruments are better separated then witht the XP-20. 2 nd and 3 th voices are more open en better in articulation then what I had with the XP-20. I even had better amps wenn I used it. I had the XA100.5. I use the Monitor Audio Pl-200 with the PLW-15 subwoofer. The Monitor Audio Pl-200 is by far the best speaker in 3-dimensional image in his price tag. It can play till about 118db. It has the quickest respons in this price tag. The PLW-15 is in speed superior compared to the most expensive Velodyne sub's which I tested as well. With Audessey pro I have fully stealth low freq with the Pl-200. I use it till 120 hz. It is so quick that the control is still awesome. I recently bought the Audioquest Redwood loudspeakercable for Pl-200 and PLC-150 center. This cable is even superior to my old Nordost Valhalla loudspeakercable which I owned since 2001. I sold this cable 2 monthes ago. Of all the expensive powercabels which I tested ( there are a lot) the Purist are by far the most talented. The Redwood does the same stunning things. Black is the best I ever heard from a loudspeakercable so far. The low freq are even better in timing than my old Valhalla loudspeakercables. I will write a review about this in about 3-4 weeks.
Hello how are you one palcer, I live in Argentina and I am known orionpc, he put the debate that amp is better for Wilson Sasha, I tell you as I see you got doubts the line 8 of Pass Labs, in my opinion are a great step forward against the line .5 at all, much more fluid sound, enhanced bass, treble sweeter, less noise, resulting in much better stereo image with better recreation of instrumentalities !! I have extensive experience in pass Labs , XA-30.8, and sold three units, and all customers !! fascinated, I also sold about 8 months ago an X-350.8, with speakers B & W 802Diamond, and the truth is that the result was magnificent !!! much higher old X-350 speakers use !! Tell me that, and I give my opinion !! also I really liked your review of Purist powercord Limited Edition, this marac sell it more than 12 years ago in Argentina and the LE, is the cable I use in my Esoteric K-01X, in my pre Pass Labs XP-30, also concidero that is sensational !! I recently bought the powers Pass Labs XA-160.8, and the truth is that are incredible !!! Maybe I pass my system! These replaced a Krell CX-700, which I still !! also excellent !!!
