    Been around the block (and back) a few times with mains cables, most of the usual suspects, homebrew efforts and now happy and settled with some foo American wires.

    Got a free one from a Dealer, a big enough improvement to make me investigate further up the range with my own hard earned.

    Depending on the rest of the kit, these things can make a real difference imo.
    Know that thing you JUST KNOW you hear when your hearing it?
    Currently hearing it....not about
    the hifi anymore, rediscovering my music.

    192 MP3 and upwards..all good.
    (And have SME V driven vinyl too)

    Life is certainly not shit.

    IME mains cables make a substantial difference. I'm awaiting my trip back to the UK to collect a full Coherent 6D loom of cables, including for the mains.

    One for the mains conditioner.

    One for the power amp.

    One for the DAC.

    And one as a spare, as one day I'll move to monoblocks .
