Cable Break In for the Naysayers
@ozzy , my new Audioquest Dragon Source cords (3) have just now reached the point where I cannot  hear / perceive any difference between them and the fully burned-in demo cord I had on hand along the way. They have been cooking for just over 400 h... 
Cable Break In for the Naysayers
@ozzy , no question my Dragon cords have improved yet again checking in at 265 hours.  I do not have the Niagara, for two reasons. I borrowed a Niagara 5000 from my dealer once, and found that the transformers buzzed audibly from across the room. ... 
Cable Break In for the Naysayers
@ozzy , I’m at 240 hours on the three AQ Dragon power cords and they are really opening up starting today.  I actually hung on to one of the fully burned in demo Dragon cords for a bit longer.  I tried replacing one of my new cords with the fully ... 
Cable Break In for the Naysayers
@ozzy , how long did you find it took for your Dragon source cords to fully break in?  I’m finding they seem to take longer than I recall my Hurricane cords taking.  
Cable Break In for the Naysayers
You certainly don’t require a nice HiFi system if you can’t hear the dramatic difference between my brand new Audioquest Dragon cords and my broken in demos of the same cords. To me the difference is blatantly obvious and my system took a dive wit... 
Cable Break In for the Naysayers
@tooblue my power cords changed drastically after i switched from burned in demo cords to the brand new cords I purchased (same models).  I think getting used to a particular sound is part of it too, but not in this particular case.  
Cable Break In for the Naysayers
I somehow doubt this thread will be the one to put a rest to the same words and arguments (on both sides!) that has been raging on since I think the 1970's. Funny how the passion has been so fierce through the decades. What would be productive is... 
Cable Break In for the Naysayers
For those of you who have experienced cable break in first hand, have any of you noticed a cyclical pattern of sounding closed up, followed by being more open, back to being closed sounding, etc - with each cycle being different in terms of how op... 
Cable Break In for the Naysayers
I’ve just had three demo Audioquest Dragon power cords my system for 5 weeks and my system was absolutely firing on all cylinders.  Just now replaced the power cords with brand new Dragons which I purchased.  Performance of my system took a truly ... 
Grimm MU1 Streamer - Really "The Best"?
@antigrunge2 , I guess the combined DAC/Streamer/Server/High Precision clock approach hasn’t been contemplated on this thread really. As I’ve been focused on testing separate servers and outboard dedicated DACs. That’s an interesting question - i... 
Anyone bought a Gryphon Diablo 333?
@62truck , also, to put the scale of improvement into perspective, I had recently upgraded from Audioquest Hurricane to Dragon power cords on 3 of 4 of my source components with the 4th component having a Firebird powering it.  The improvement was... 
Anyone bought a Gryphon Diablo 333?
@62truck , I think my tweaks fall into the category of, it works for me and may or may not work in your scenario as they are dependent on a variety of variables.  But for what it’s worth, I switched from using Herbie’s Tenderfeet under my componen... 
Anyone bought a Gryphon Diablo 333?
Due to some recent vibration control and other tweaks in my Diablo 300 and my system is sounding far better than it ever has before….   Really sounds quite stunning now, more natural, flowing and higher resolution.  I’m excited by the potential of... 
Borresen Loudspeakers
To those who have actually heard these new speakers, including the OP, you all seem to have the same reaction after hearing them, which is to say they sound fantastic and they sound bigger than bookshelves. Your word means 100X more than others, a... 
Anyone bought a Gryphon Diablo 333?
@kairosman that dealer is no longer carrying Gryphon for some reason or other.  Very odd.
