I’m enjoying these cables from the wall to my speakers. I highly recommend these cables from Statement E2plus power cables to Statement digital,Statement XLR and Statement speaker cables. These cables favourably replaced Cardas Golden Reference cables and a variety of $1500 to $2000 power cables. Highly recommended.
I am specifically interested in power cords. How long did they take before sounding their best? Also, I’d highly appreciate listing power cable model used with each component. Thank you.
They sound best after a couple of hundred hours but they sound good right away. You have the option to have the cables burned in on a cooker which I recommend. I use the same Statement E2plus cable on my power conditioner and on all of my components. Excellent power cable. I have tried most power cables ranging between $1500 to $2000 and the Audio Art Statement E2plus power cables ended my power cable pursuit.
I have a pair of AAC power1 e Cryo AC cords. Admittedly not the Statements. The power1 e Cyro’s compete price-wise directly with a lot of other cords, including Triode Wire Labs American Series. I’ve been able to demo those two cords head-to-head in my system. Dollar for dollar TWL wins, especially with analog electronics.
Nobody should say yay or nay to trying any cord in his/her system based on on-line forum commentary including my own. These AAC cords are beautifully built with premium connectors and materials (so are TWL cords) and should be in everyone’s wish list. SQ-wise, I’ve put my humble opinion into practice with TWL cords throughout my entire system
Just an illustration of why cables are such a matter of personal taste.
I have a couple of Audio Art cables. It was very pleasurable buying from them. Lots of conversation, quick and enjoyable interaction. And the cables are very nice to look at and listen to. The only problem is they are not stupidly expensive. Otherwise, top gear!
I know what you mean. They compare to cables more than twice their price. Rob the owner of the company works on a high volume business rather than charging outrageous
prices. His Statement cables are high quality at very reasonable prices.
I am enjoying a 9 year old Perfectwave transport which is functioning perfectly but the only thing I am curious about is that is it likely that it will function without issues for years to come or is it likely that something will fail over time? If the transport does fail I would send it in to the factory for repair but what is the cost of repair and what is the turn around time to get it fixed and returned to me in Canada? There’s no signs of failure at the moment but eventually something will fail. What is the average life span of these transports and what is the cost of repair when necessary?What typically fails in these units? Is it possible my transport will function with out problems for many more years to come? I purchased a spare disc drive and adapter which may be necessary to be safe but should the transport fail I would send it in to the factory.
