Power cable

Hello everyone, curious on thoughts for a power cable for my Pass Labs X250.8 ?  At the moment I’m leaning at the Furutech DPS 4.1 cable with the 48M NCF Rhodium AC connectors. The outlet will be the Furutech GTX-D NCF Rhodium as well. I have read a bit on this. Curious on everyone’s thoughts. I have chatted with a few members here already and owner of Vhaudio. Do you guys think the cost is worth it overall ? Thank you 


@ghdprentice at the time I bought my Niagara 1200 they told me those would be overkill for it. I went with the monsoon cable, it’s a good cable overall but I’m curious what’s out there and power cables seem to have great effect…. Depends who you ask. Haha 



The effects the Hurricane had on your system is nothing like the effect it had on my system. Which, of course we know is a thing and why you have to try stuff in your own system. I will say the the Hurricane has taken the industry by Storm (teehee) over the last couple of years… so I think your experience is likely the less common. 

@soix I read those not long ago haha. I am pretty happy where I am at the moment. My panels are up too, still waiting on the face plates for the ones behind the couch. They sent the wrong color on accident and the ones that shipped were damaged. They are up for now haha. I do have a few more panels I want to get but doing it over time to hear the changes. More or less reading on the outlet and power cables now .

@shtr74sims, when I bought my AQ Niagara 1200 for my hp system, I tried the Monsoon and the Blizzard before I settled on the AQ Thunder power cable because I believed it was the right price for what I needed. My very nice audio gear dealer let me take home an AQ Dragon power cable just to try for a week. Did it make the music sound clearer and more defined than the AQ Thunder? Absolutely it did. Was it worth another hand full of thousands of dollars? No it wasn’t in my setup. The thing that I really like about the Thunder is it’s overall neutrality. 

@ghdprentice Don’t get me wrong, the AQ H is a very good power cord. I tried Shunyata Alpha v2 while I had the Hurricane to see if I can get a more neutral and balanced presentation and it did sound more open but ultimately the Alpha was much cooler sounding and caused a fatigue quickly. With Hurricane I could listen for hours without a desire to lower the volume. Again, It’s a very nice cable and I totally see how it can work in other systems. I think it was just too much of a good thing with the already warmer sounding Pass amplification. I wanted something more balanced top to bottom without the emphasis on bass or any particular region for that mstter. The Furutech FP-S55n cable provided that in my system but the DPS takes it even further without being analytical and artificially detailed. It is 100% worth trying the AQ H though. If it didn’t work great in my system it doesn’t mean it’s a bad cable. It’s all about synergy.
