Home Demo Faceoff: Nordost / Audioquest / Transparent
I've been waiting until my Clarus Crimson cables and power cord have completed 200 hours of burn-in to share my thoughts.  I'm at 185 hours currently....  The last 15 hours are proving difficult as I have guests staying (including my infant nephew...

Regarding the AudioQuest cables, my dealer told me burnin was not required as Gabe Powell has introduced a new burnin procedure and, according to my shop, eliminates the need for burnin.  They said this was just introduced recently.  Maybe they we...

The Frey 2’s were actually delivered a highly enjoyable and satisfying presentation at a fraction of the price.  However I did perceive a noticeable lack of midrange clarity and air with the Frey 2’s vs the Valhalla 2’s.  And a hair less speed wit...

Also Kerisabe, regarding your MacBook, not sure of WiFi streaming vs Ethernet.  Try it out?  Beyond that, there is a very large rabbit-hole of mods to your computer you can make to make real improvements in sound (power supply, hard disk, USB twea...

My packing list said it included the polish cloth, and also plastic polish as well.  However, no polish was included.  My dealer says Gryphon told them they found that the polish they were previously including "dried out" too much and they don't h...

Interesting comments about the vocals.  During my burn-in, I had thought at one point the vocals seemed very good, and highly detailed, but ever so slightly “back” in the mix.  Wasn’t sure if I was imagining it so I didn’t mention.  This is no lon... 
Innuos Zenith Backorder
As mmeldogg mentioned, I am still waiting for my Zenith MKIII, impatiently.  I will wait it out.  The biggest shame is that Innuos’ distributor told them my order would ship in 30 days (it’s about 75 now).  And, my dealer says the distributor stop...

Kerisabe, I will make a point of trying the granite thing, once I’ve sorted the direction in cables out.  I don’t want to change anything else while testing different cables.  I’ll have to stop by the counter-top store or Home Depot and see what I...

Congrats Kerisabe and thanks for the tips. Yes spiking my speakers to the floor is on my todo list, but it will be the final step after I get everything else right, to ensure I only need to do it once and only need to make eight holes in my floor ...

Thanks!  Will be finding out the ETA on the Clarus cables shortly.  I ended up ordering the power cord as well, as it is just too cheap to pass up.  Weird how this loophole allows me to buy direct from the distributor at prices dealers get - I thi...

rshad, yes more tests are coming but not 100% sure when yet.  So here are the latest developments:-After trying to line up tests of the Clarus Crimson cables (purchase with 100% money back return policy) from a US-based dealer, I realized the tota...

Inna,The N.A. Gryphon distributor replied to my email in minutes and indicated they will coordinate getting demo Gryphon Power Cords and Speaker cables to my dealer for me to test.Do you know the list price of the Gryphon cords, by chance?  They h...

Hi Steakster,I am interested in testing Clarus Crimson power cords AND speaker cables.  Would be very interested in hearing your perspective.

Also, regarding the Tyr 2, I’d probably just go for the Valhalla 2 over Tyr 2, if I was already about to spend that much.  But hoping the Audience will come through and be what kind an looking for at a lower price when I get to test.Im also thinki...

I would really like to test the Gryphon power cord and cables.  My dealer said that wasn’t possible.  Guessing Gryphon’s NA distributor is not able or willing to facilitate the demo.  Maybe I’ll try contacting the distributor directly.  But I’m no...
