I recently bought a used S300 on Audiogon for my secondary system, consisting of an RME DAC/Preamp & KEF LS50s. The amp does a lot of things really well, such as soundstage, imaging and space around the instruments. It also has great clarity & detail and excellent tight, defined powerful bass. However, the mids were a little thin sounding & edgy & overall lacked the richness/body I was getting from my old Aragon 8008BB.
Out of curiosity, I pulled my Audience Forte F3 power cord from my BHK 250 in my main system and tried it on the S300. I was surprised at the difference. The mids were fuller and it added some richness/musicality that was missing. It also tamed the edginess. What a nice improvement for a $150 cord. Since I still need another power cord for the BHK 250, I ordered an Audio Envy Ocean-Elite P3 for $200. I’ve read lots of reviews about these besting PCs costing 3 or 4 times more. Plus, they offer a full refund policy. It’s worth a shot, right?
Just wanted to share a great system tweak here with the PS Audio family.
