Is it worth to get 2 m Nodorst vs 1m
I ended up getting the 2 meter lengths and I must have auditioned the 2 meter length now that I see them.  All I can say is these two cords, Tyr (pre-amp) and Frey (Dac) lifted my system to a dynamic and resolving level that is noticeable without ... 
Is it worth to get 2 m Nodorst vs 1m
I can't believe I didn't measure the demo cords (they were marked not for sale demo)  Is there a standard length that Nordost gives to dealers for demo cords?  My situations is the same as Charles1dad...One meter is fine because components are in ...

@lak Are there any specific cords you'd recommend to me for audition that would rival these Tyr and Frey 2's...that are so much lower in price?

RSf507, 8,000 for the Furtech...now i feel better.  :)

I have not heard any other power cords other than these PS Audio pluses which I was given and seem to not do much for the sound.  I'm located in Fitchburg, Wi right next to Madison.

I am not a technically inclined audiophile.  I am a listener who doesn't want to "squint his ears' to hear an improvement in my stereo.  As I said, it's been many years since a purchase.  My interconnects have broken, I've lost my Krell amp to rep...

Chayro, you hit on the audiophile neurotic FOMO thing. I haven’t bought anything in forever and this is huge price. I will wonder. I did audition the 1 meter Frey and Tyr...they were great. As far as the length, it will be difficult for me to mana...

The one meter works fine as far as length...i can use them.  It's about this claim that the sound quality is better at 2 meters vs one meter...any thoughts on that?  
would using the onkyo a9150 with Thiel CS6 speakers be safe?
Sure, I'm just trying to play my thiels versus my goodwill stereo instead.  I just didn't want to damage the Thiels.  I am not playing it at any good volume.

Thank you for your answers. With great fear i badly shoehorned my Nordost Valhalla cables into the too tight area and the posts are slightly too wide to get a complete fit (which scared me)  I hooked my Dac up into the Mains In and nearly had a he... 
would using the onkyo a9150 with Thiel CS6 speakers be safe?
Because the Thiels stay under 4 ohms all the time and the Onkyo only has 60 watts per channel..  I'm afraid of damaging the speakers if the amp was a mismatch or too underpowered.

Gentlemen, I have started my engine and it is good to be back in high fidelity. Thank you all for your input. I fed the units power in standby after about 30 hours of getting warmer. I concluded that while still cold, the amp was warmer than the c...

@feldmen4   Wow, thanks so much for this detailed analysis.  My balloon just popped however.  I've been awake for hours thinking that today is the day!  I have kept both boxes sealed as I completely agree that keeping things wrapped will hinder co...

@bobpyle  No, the obvious didn't escape but I haven't spoken to the dealer in years and won't.  I spoke with Krell because the amp/pre-amp is long out of warranty, I paid and it's my issue.

@barts @feldmen4 @dekay Ok, i have anywhere from 24 hours from the chemical engineer, to four days from barts.  I really don't think I need to wait longer than 24 hours but I would like to hear the logic for such a long period of waiting.  I thoug...
