@lalitk  Wow, 300 hours to open up! Now I understand why it took you longer to provide your insights and I'm very appreciative. I'm sure that others will be as well. This thread has gathered a number of insights into the 聖Hijiri brand and I hope ...

@lalitk  Patiently awaiting the comparison between the three Hijiri power cords. Will be very interested to read your observations of the 聖Hijiri SM2R-L PC and where you think it works best too.  
The Audiophile's Wife
Yes, really love The Audiophiles Wife blog. Such wit and some really good "inside" jokes/references, and some of those not even a reference to The Audiophile or audiophilia.

Power Cable Break In - Such a Change!

@rareace  Yes, it is an EVO3. It is probably two years old.   @lalitk  Hey Lalit, will be very interested to hear your impression of the new limited edition聖Hijiri SM2R-L. See my updates below.   @grannyring  I get it! You will have to wait...

@rareace  I am using IsoTek Optimum only on my Sigmas power conditioner. Using Audio Envy on my preamp (P2) and amp (M3) and Nordost Frey 2 on my source. Audio Envy, for me, is much much better than the Optimum, no contest. Planning to try Hijiri...

Class A or Class D solid-state amplifiers (modern designs)
It is not about Class A or D. It is about sound quality. If you want to hear a very good Class D amp, check out the TAD M2500; 95 lbs and sounds truly amazing. I have it and the matching preamp and E1 speakers. My end game core system.
