Puritan PSM 136 vs Shunyata Denali V2
yes, I was referring to the 156 model  
Puritan PSM 136 vs Shunyata Denali V2
I have had both.  In fact, I sold my Puritan (which was very good for the price and far better than the Nordost that I owned initially ) for the Denali.  The Shunyata provided a lower noise floor (indeed silent), clearer, more articulate, tighter ... 
Shunyata Omega Speaker cable and interconnect
Dave777tx: I have not heard the Transparents (no local dealer).  I have heard Magico speakers with several brands of cables (Nordost and I believe the other was Cardas, but "don't quote me") and found that the Magico speakers were too bright, har... 
Shunyata Delta V2 Speaker Cables
I have Sigma speaker cables and are currently testing the omega.  (Hopefully, will be able to post a review/comparison shortly). The sigma easily outperformed by Nordost Valhalla 2s.  The omega is even better.  But, this does not answer your quest... 
New release - Shunyata Omega interconnects and speaker cables
I have a full loom of Sigma version 2 (latest) including a jumper cable for my Sonus Faber Il Cremonese speakers. Over the last week, I have had the opportunity to compare my Sigma with the Omega speaker jumper cable (all other cables remaining t... 
Shunyata Sigma V2 Speaker Cables .....your sonic impressions in your system(s)
About a year ago, I purchased a Shunyata Everest power "conditioner/distributor" and swapped my Nordost Valhalla power cables for Sigma power cables.  Everything including mono amps got plugged into the Everest.  The change was improved clarity, a... 
Cable elevators
Cable lifters make it easier to swiffer around and under the cables!  
Puritan vs Nordost Power Cable
I did a comparison between the Puritan and Shunyata, both the power conditioners and power cables.  For the Puritan it was the 156 conditioner and their top of the line ultra power cord.  For Shunyata, I tried both the Denali and the Everest and t... 
IsoAcoustics Gaia vs the Titan series
Thank you @blisshifi  Have you heard the Auva isolators (stack audio) in comparison to the Isoacoustics? How much difference between Gaia I and Townshend ?  
Question about Shunyata Power Conditioners
If you have the Everest with Omega XC cord and you are plugging your components into the Everest and not the wall outlet, my impression is that Shunyata does not recommend the Omega power cords for the components as they are in essence redundant (... 
Question about Shunyata Power Conditioners
The Altaira makes a significant difference, even with the Everest and Shunyata power and interconnects.  The noise level is lowered which translates into a clearer more articulate bass, greater resonance and better "decay"  for string instruments ... 
Question about Shunyata Power Conditioners
With limited funds, go with the Denali and a Sigma XC cord (or if you can, the Omega XC) to the wall.  I have seen several of these for sale used for good prices (make sure to get the latest version of both the Denali and the cords). Then, gradual... 
Question about Shunyata Power Conditioners
I began with a Puritan 156 and it was good.  Then I had the opportunity to do a A:B test with the Shunyata Denali.  The Denali was at least 2x better.  Then I compared the Denali with the Everest.  The latter was another 20% better.  Importantly, ... 
Sonus Faber owners--string grill cover alternatives
I have the il cremonese and never unpacked the string grills...  the black leather against the SF "red" finish is aesthetically pleasing.  Granted, no children or pets, so protection is not an issue.   
The New Amati G5 or Joseph Audio Pearl Graphene
I must emphasize agreement with ghdprentice w/r to Macintosh and SF.  I have auditioned the SF with McIntosh, Rogue Audio, Audio Research and concur that the McIntosh is the worse combination in that the sound is somewhat "blurred", detail lost, s...
