Shunyata KING COBRA VX V1 `i` - thoughts on this power cord

Shunyata came out with this ; Special Edition '' i ''  King Cobra power cord a few years back and the folklore is that it was very expensive and very time consuming to make and was eventually discontinued. However, some had said that sonically it was amazing and still one of the best on digital sources. I will also note that you really do not see there on the open market. Your thoughts as I have a chance to buy one.    
Hello lak and thank you  - but I was looking more for a response as to the actual sonic characteristics of the cable - and not one about any price. So, have you heard this cable ?  
HI Gare - I would contact Grant at Shunyata about this one.  I do NOT recall an i series King Cobra model and I would be a little concerned.  Better off checking it out.  Good Luck

@garebear, sorry I have not heard the Shunyata KING COBRA VX V1 `i`. I also nave not heard of it. jwpstayman made a great suggestion, please let us know what you find out. I do know that there are many that swear that the origional King Cobra is still a great power cord.
I had the original King Cobra and the King Cobra V1 many years ago.....the sound was just so inviting and smooth. A very analog sound to it . I stupidly sold them for the search of the ; Holy Grail of power cords. These are even the Limited Edition '' i'' version and not sure of what the change is but it has ben in my system for a week. I have it on an Esoteric K-01x and I will tell you the sound is lush, real , full like real music  - but the detail is there  - it's the presentation is different from what I am used to. The industry has gone to a stripped, fast, too neutral presentation and to my ears - I like the full presentation sound. Nice to have the original King Cobra's back in my system       
The industry seems to have definitely gone lean and ultra detailed, and unfortunately the harmonic texture or organic character of music seems to have disappeared or become lean, also. I would not describe presentation as neutral but as fast to ultra fast, a little bland, fatiguing and not real, although it seems that some and/or many enjoy this lean and ultra detailed presentation.

How would you describe the presentation of the King Cobra VI i?

Good morning Audiogon members - thank you asa  and I too am looking for one as well. Let's hope for the best that we eventually find one !

I just bought a V1i 20A cord, having Shunyata re-term the IEC to 15A for me...we'll see.

Putting it on an old Sony CD player in a 2nd system (probably a sacrilege for some...I have a little Siltech on it  now), but this system is quite pure, shows up the limits of many a piece: all NOS tubed, i.e. AirTight ATM300B (WE 300Bs, orig matched GL 749s), 15 ohm LS3/5As, Kondo spkr wire, Sorcer.

I'll let you know.

@asa should be interesting definitely let us know. Why didn't you use a VooDoo adapter instead of the switch to a 15 amp IEC?

This powercord to me in my system, was like adding a nice warm blanket and wrapping it over my speakers. Didn't help that the highs were a bit grainy. Bad synergy I guess.

Lak: I don't like adapters. No experience necessarily, just a starting principle.

Granted, this could just be nostalgia on my part.

Aniwolfe: which component/s did you have it hooked to? 

BTW, aniwolfe, I will putting back together my main system over the next year or so, from scratch. And will probably go with Hijiri Takumi PCs there.


Aniwolfe: which component/s did you have it hooked to? 

Didn't matter where I but the cord. I heard the heavy blanket.

Thanks, aniwolfe. Well, blanketing is never good. Just have to see....if its no good, then out it goes!
