I’m not able to compare brands, but I noticed a major improvement in my system when I paired Shunyata NR with their power conditioner. I also saw an improvement moving up from Venom, but that said, I still have Venom NR feeding my subs. I have streamer, DAC, phono preamp, integrated amp and two subs plugged into six independent outlets capable of drawing 30 amps momentarily on each circuit. I believe that these power components are critical to the performance of my system.
Owned Shunyata Sidewinders, then went to Kimber PK10 Golds which on my system and ears were an improvement. Later went to WyWires Silver and Platinum Juice II PC’s and very happy with them. Own all three variants from the standard, to HC and Digital types. Great power cords for the money, especially on the used market. Been moving my IC’s and speaker cables from WyWires to Nordost but probably stay with WyWires PC’s. I do own one Valhalla 2 PC which is definitely better than the Platinum PC but the WyWire holds its own very well and was a lot less money. If you’re looking to move up I’d consider the Platinum Series.
I use a WyWires Silver Juice II Digital PC on my Teddy Pardo, and all digital devices as well. Platinums HC’s on power amps and Silver Standard and HC and preamp and other components.
Thanks for your contribution to the thread.
I had been using the Shunyata Research Alfa EF on the Supernait 3 but today it has been retired by the Audio Envy Mega. The Mega offers greater velocity of signal transfer, better transient response and speed, without lag. It’s more honest to the source. The Mega projects holographic imaging and a larger soundstage. It lets more information slip through for a more relaxed listening experience. The Alpha EF sounds thick, slow and veiled by comparison.
I recently had a conversation with Alex Svetisky of WyWires and after the call I was convinced that the Platinum Series power cords are the sweet spot in the line. Very favorably reviewed online, and the Platinum Series cables are currently 40% off.
hi , i'm not sure if posting here regarding Wywires is appropriate ?
Has anyone ordered from Wywires recently ? Did the owner or any representative provide prompt replies? i had paid for 2 power cables , Alex promised that he would complete soon as he was delayed by some personal issues. That was about 2 weeks ago. i recently emailed him again on Sun and he haven't reply since.
i'm worrying about his condition.
Thanks for any info. regards,
