Innuos statement

Just upgraded yesterday from the innuos zenith mk3 to the innuos statement. It is a huge step forward. 
The jump in performance from one level to another was clear and obvious, and the improvement was across the board fantastic.  The background was quieter. The dynamics were better. The detail is just more....

I had originally ordered a innuos Phoenix. As I started to look at the cost for a new USB and a new power cord (plus the dollars from the sale of my zenith) and the cost of the Phoenix, I realized that I was getting close to the cost of the statement. I never got the Phoenix in my system but I have read that the combination of the Phoenix and the zenith mkiii is 90% of the statement. Really glad I went full Monty. 
This is by far the single biggest improvement in sound quality that I have added.

There is a Statement available for sale today over at the other site (USAM). Good price. Maybe some "wiggle room" too 
Just a word of advice; don't ignore the suggestion for the Chord umbilical cord  Significant difference from stock.  Highly recommended by my old ears.  Improvements across the board,
I also use an aftermarket power cord, Cardas Clear, and CenterStage2 footers from Critical Mass Systems.  The combo of tweaks has taken the Statement to an easily heard higher level of performance.  
I play mostly rebook CD's and Tidal Masters.

I agree with you on the chord umbilical. I did purchase one used. And it was a significant amount of detail added. Using a kubala sosna emotion power cord, also using kubala sosna emotion usb, love the statement. 
I also play mostly redbook cd’s from my NAS, tidal and Qobuz. 

Hello All,  I'ma awaiting both my McIntosh C53 for the new day module and the Innuos Statement.  Any thoughts on the pairing?
