Power Cord Review

I'm going to be performing power cord review for www.stereotimes.com. First review will be Power Cord shoot-out for power cords under $600. Power cords to be reviewed in initial article are following.
Harmonic Tech. PRO AC 11
Audio Magic Sorcerer
VooDoo Mana
Shunyata Sidewinder
ZuCable Birth
Acoustic Zen Krakatoa(over $600 but will be used as reference)
Acoustic Zen Tsunami
Custom Power Cord Co Model 11

I also was thinking about reviewing BMI Black Eel and Whale Elite(considering affordable price of Whale on Audiogon) and
"Absolute Power Cord" considering amount of controversy surrounding later cord on Audiogon discussions.

I was wondering should I exclude any of above cords from review(not enough interest for them, or they do not belong in the budget group) and did I miss any good contenders in that group. Any feedback will be highly appreciated and lead to the more usefull review.

I'm going to start this PC nonsense (?) by replacing my Belden 14AWG shielded with the Harm Tech AC11 I just found for sale here, first on my new CDP (Emc-1 MkII).
Any results posted? How's the Harmonich?
They were the first and still the best on the scene. I have compared the base model Master coupler to the Shunyata V2 and the Harm Tech. Shunyata sounded wooley compared to SMC and warmer than the Harm Tech. Ref. Coupler just kicks it up a notch by lowering the noise floor. A PC shootout would be a waste of time IMHO w/o the Synergistic Master Coupler.
Jim, my experience was similar to your 6-19-01 comment, "I know that conventional wisdom says that PC's make a bigger difference at source components, but these are a nice addition to my power amp." I'd originally connected a new BMI Whale to my Sony SCD-777ES player, and kept a BMI Eel on my Pass Aleph 3 amp. But I was surprised at how richer and deeper the sound became when I swapped them. The Whale, a great PC, will stay on the Pass amp, with the Eel connected to the 777 till I can afford to replace it with another Whale. My power cord hunt is over.
Get Stu's MAS power cord ata 6' for $85. 561-642-4103. His will beat any of the above cords and leave a liitle left over.
