Audioquest Dragon Powercord vs Hurricane
I should have added that I tried High Fidelity powercords in my system and they didn't sound anything like what’s described in the Audio Bacon review. I had them for over a month and finally returned them. Again, cables must be auditioned in your ... 
Audioquest Dragon Powercord vs Hurricane
I read the audiobacon powercord reviews and to a certain extent I agree with his opinions about the Hurricane... tonally dense, liquid, heavy, sweet, analog. I can even agree that compared to some powercords it lacks ultimate detail. In my system ... 
My Long List of Amplifiers and My Personal Review of Each!
I think WC does a great job of explaining in great detail how a particular component sounds to his ears. We can't take everything he has ever said about a particular component as static recommendations. As he listens to more and more components hi... 
Torus RM-15 or Bryston Bit-15 owners. Do you plug in your amp to them?
I have a Torus RM20 and plug my amplifier into it. I prefer the sound of my Jeff Rowland 625 S2 amplifier plugged into the RM20.  
Audioquest Dragon Powercord vs Hurricane
ozzy,Yes, the Dragon is expensive. That's why I wanted to try it in my system prior to purchase. I think it's an outstanding power cord, but I prefer the Hurricane in my system.

larry5729,The good news is you don’t have to rely on what I say. Please get a Audioquest Thunder powercord(the least expensive in their new series) on loan and come to your own conclusions."However, how much better?" I say read my post, because I ...

viber6,I can only speak for myself about what I want out of my system. In my current system every recording sounds different. Some recordings sound flat, some bright, some very open and detailed. I listen to mostly contemporary Jazz(Paul Brown, Bo...

Viber6,So, I'm man enough to apologize. You're correct I did ask the question, so sorry. Here's my definition of high fidelity-the reproduction of sound with little distortion, giving a result very similar to the original.Because we don't know wha...

ron17,I think Audiogon is great when we talk about our experiences without dictating to other what they must agree with regarding preferences. I find it fascinating that cables can has such an impact on the tonality of a system. I agree that price...

ron17,I don't know why I expected it to be different. Viber6,"we must strive for the goal of high fidelity, not just striving for a full or warm sound just because you like it."You are not the authority on audio and can't tell anyone what they mus...

Jafant,"You run an interesting combination of Audioquest, Clarus and WireWorld, cabling."I've had the pleasure of auditioning every cable in my system. Cables from Wireworld,  Audience. Shunyata, Transparent, Audioquest, High Fidelity,  and a coup...

Viber6,What's clarity and detail? Do you think it's an absolute or is it subjective? Your clarity and detail can easily be my sterile and bright. Whose right?

millercarbon,"Why so many embrace such an obviously flawed approach is beyond me."I'm not going to argue with you. This won't be that kind of thread. You assemble your system whatever way you prefer and I'll do the same. Nothing becomes out of bal... 
Audioquest Dragon Powercord vs Hurricane
I've heard this said before, "sometimes you need to let your ears adjust to what you're hearing, before you begin evaluating." The Dragons sound different from any powercord I've ever had. I need to adjust how I listen to capture the true essence ... 
Audioquest Dragon Powercord vs Hurricane
Elizabeth and Folkfreak very good points. They are demo pairs and the dealer told me they are completely broken in. I’ll keep them for several more days to do additional listening. I really just want to reiterate that I’m not saying the Hurricanes...
