Bottom Line:   
There is not much to say except this is a crappy power cord. Buy a Virtual Dynamics if you want the absolute Best!

Bottom Line:   
I was sceptical about the improvements a power cord could make... until I tried this one. I compared it to the Gutwire G-Clef (which costs about 50% more) in the shop and the Wireworld was the clear winner. It's as if a layer of haze had been removed from the music. Soundstage, dynamics, localization, and clarity were all improved quite noticably when using these cables with either the CD player or the amp/pre-amp. What really surprised me about this cable though (and sold me on it) was the change in tone! It was as if the system had been tuned like a piano! Timbres became much more plausible (especially piano) and bass much more taught and tuneful. Wow!

I now use the Aurora on my amp and the cheaper (and thinner) Stratus on my CD player. It should be noted here that I've only tested these cords in systems that had filtered power, so I can't comment on their performance when plugged directly into the wall.

System:

Panamax 1000+ line conditioner/surge protector
Cambridge Audio D500 CD player
Audioquest Coral interconnects
Bryston B-60 integrated amp
Audioquest Slate speaker cable
Castle Eden loudspeakers

Bottom Line:   
I now use the Aurura cable on preamp, cd and poweramps. I was told it was important for the poweramps, but i have experienced that the improvement when using on CD and preamp is in fact even more powerful. This cables have a good price (~$300), and are better than i.e. Kimber and Nordost.

Bottom Line:   
The Aurora can awaken a thin, dead system. If you install the Aurora, you can expect large image sizes, more swash-buckling dynamics, bigger bass, and a greater freedom from compression. However, in many systems, these traits may be over the top. For a more detailed, neutral, tight, clean sound, go with the Kimber PowerKords. But at this price, the Aurora is better than most other products. My sugestion is to save your money, and try out the Tara Labs Decade AC, Synergistic AC Master Coupler, and Van Evers Pandora.

Bottom Line:   
There is no word to qualify this power cord. Once connected to my power amp (YBA 2 Alpha)I just could not believe my ears...after all this is just a power cord! Give it a try , you won t regret it!
