Try Stillpoints footers under Power Conditioner?
I placed a set of four Ultra SS under my amp, then preamp power supply, but found it a bit too bright. Decided to try under the Purepower. Worked nicely. 
Your last concert was to see who and when?
Sufjan Stevens at the Riverside Theater in Milwaukee...a venue that I find often fails to offer quality acoustics, but last night proved to be an exception. Outstanding show and excellent sound mix. 
Rolling Stones Tour 2015
Saw the Stones in Chicago, summer of 2013. Had great seats 2 rows from the tongue. Never stopped smiling. Energy from the band and crowd was contagious. Best cover band I ever seen. 
Who actually played drums in Whiplash movie?

Hi Tsushima1,I have only had the opportunity to try the CT-1E in both regular and low resistance. The low resistance offered a slight improvement in output, but negligible at best. Rick was very helpful in assisting; explaining additional time and...

Tsushima1...are you experiencing a drop in output with HFC speaker cables? I did with Avalon/CAT based system; so tried the low resistance cable with little improvement. Shame, since the sc was quite exceptional. So, I stuck with HiDiamond sc and ... 
Avalon Eidolon matching speaker cables and IC
I have used a number of cables with Eidelon's. Purist, FIM, Virtual, High Fidelity, and now HiDiamond. They have all performed quite well, although component dependent. I wish to point out the speaker cable is merely one piece of the "system". Bes... 
HiDiamond Diamond 3 XLR IC's - Burn-In Time?
I have run HD power cords, ic's and speaker cables. Although, the power cords seemed to require greatest break-in time, the sc also demanded patience. If memory serves me right, about 300 hours brought consistent, musical performance.

After several attempts to allow HFC cables a proper break-in...mostly due to HFC model upgrades, I am pleased to proclaim my system is sounding more musical than ever. I have a combination of HFC UR interconnects, Hidiamond speaker cable and power... 
High Fidelity Cables CT-1designed by Rick Schultz
Thanks, all for the input. I intend to allow for break-in, considering how good things sounded when they were good. The brightness and lack of mid to deep bass makes for an uninvolving listening experience, and of course, thinking the cable being ...

So Tbg...what changes had you noticed in your system during break-in? After nearly 30 hours I have a rather hifi delivery. Lots of detail, but little body and less involvement, especially compared to the Hidiamond the HFC replaced. 
High Fidelity Cables CT-1designed by Rick Schultz
Please share the changes the CT-1UR interconnect will go through. I am using it as phono not high current running through it, nor continuous hours of play time. The first 10 hours were quite good, but the more recent 30 have been flat.T... 
The best speaker you ever heard?
Hey Ctsooner. The one time I heard the 7's I had a similar experience. It took a couple lps, but combined with the ARC electronics and room these speakers offered the least hifi presentation I have heard. The speed, tonality, descr...
