Audioquest custom made triple weave design power cable (Storm Series).
Elizabeth,They are horribly stiff and I submit their stiffness will prevent more than a few sales. I should have called Audioquest first. Their customers service said, "they may come out with a source version", but nothing anytime soon.

It's my understanding that they're coming out with a new Hurricane. I don't know what they've changed, but it's supposed to be different from the original release. 
Auditioned Magico A3 - VERY DARK...
I listened to the A3s on two different occasions. The first time was at a show and the sound was lifeless. The second time was in a dealer's showroom. They sounded like different speakers, detailed and very open. I submit Magico's are some of the ... 
Thinking of Kef Blade 2 to replace Revel Salon 2
Please describe the differences between the Salon 2s and Blade 2s regarding space between instruments, the soundstage, imaging, tonality, and dynamics.

ctsooner,I concur with your comments. I've tried several different power cords in my system with good results, but I prefer the Hurricane to all of them. My friend had the Hurricane and Dragon. He said, "it isn't a night and day difference, but if... 
Gryphon Diablo 300: at the top of Integrated Amps?
No "best/absolutes" in audio, only preferences. It's about your ear and what type of sound you prefer.

Is there a significant difference between the Blades and Blade 2s in a room that is 20' x 26'. Does the Blades sound better and/or require a subwoofer?¬†

The cynical side of me suggest dealer listings aren't listed, because it's a chance for some manufacture's to sell direct.

Love ya, but I don't think you've heard the Rowland 625 S2? Several Audiogon members have heard my system. Some thought it was laid back, ¬†some said it had bite and was slightly forward. I submit it's on the very slightly dark side of neutral and ...

Thanks for the information. My room is 20' x 26'. I really like the Blade 2s; I just don't know if I like them enough to replace my Monitor Audio PL500 IIs. When you already own a speaker it changes the equation.

I listened to the KEF Blade 2's tonight. I really liked what I heard. To my ears they are neutral, very open, detailed, and completely disappeared. What are the differences between the Blade 2's and Blades?

Prior to retiring from the Air Force I traveled all the time. There were several times during my travels I wanted to purchase something and the dealer had to call the manufacturer to get approval to sell to me, because I lived out side of their di...

I can't speak for Matt, but please remember he is playing with some very, very expensive DACs and music servers. My personal opinion is you must put components in price categories and how it fits into your system.
