Brave man, McGowan...

Brave for sure. This will alienate a bunch of people. All cable haters and snake oilers. Very risky business for Paul to post this in public forum.

Apparently that’s not how many people listen. Basically, if my Null Tester cannot pick up something, my ears cannot possibly pick up 😬

Speaking of which, it's really funny when such come to the conclusion that any difference they hear yet can't measure is trick of their mind. So impressions are trick of the mind also. And enjoyment comes from impressions. What's the point of being an audiophile, again? ;)
Well, on a related, but much smaller scale, I replaced my PS Audio AC-5 power cable going to my integrated amp with an Audioquest Thunder cable a few months back. The improvement was definite but also hard to describe so I won’t try but I’m looking for a Tornado now and will move the Thunder to my streamer/dac. Nice stuff, but I hope I never hear a Dragon, that snack bracket is just too high!

I will second  emailists' post regarding the Niagara 7000. It is pretty cool that this conditioner accepts power amp input/connection without degrading, stealing  its sound quality.  I have only auditioned Ayre electronics plugged into the Niagara 7000.


Happy Listening!

I want to add a few comments.  Anyone who says that " McGowan’s products are way overrated POS!" is either ignorant or has an ax to grind.I have been a strong proponent of their power regenerators since the days of the premier power plant. Have owned the PPP,  the P5,  P10,P15, and now the P20.  They make a huge difference and everyone i know who uses them agrees with me.  I have a friend who read Paul's post about the power cords and was using a Pangea cord for the 20 amp connection.  He purchased a Audioquest Thunder power cord which is way less $$ than the Dragon, and he found it to make a nice difference over the Pangea.  It does not make sense and even Paul, from his comments, does not understand it,  but these things do matter.  I admire his courage for throwing that out there.   He has a very high level of integrity and does not act from a place of greed or manipulation.
