Received my Testament Power Cable and Statement SE XLR today. I opted for the 3 day burn-in on the cable cooker. Build quality is very good on both cables. I especially like how well the female plug for the power cord grips the power entry module of the equipment.
Too early to judge sound quality, but both cables sound very good for being barley broken-in.
The ic is very stiff and hard to orientate the XLR connectors. Probably should have ordered a meter instead of .7 meter length. It seems weird though, that after plugging in the female ends into the outputs of the preamp, that the male ends are orientated upside down in relation to the inputs on the amp. If they were the other way around, I wouldn’t have to twist the cable to plug them in, and it would be a lot easier. I noticed the same orientation on the connectors of Belden ICONOCLAST, which were also very stiff. I had to twist them to line up the XLR pins to the amp’s inputs.
The power cord is not very stiff at all and easy to deal with.
