I hope you are well :)
I have been looking into the possibilty of upgrading my powercords, interconnects, and speakercables. At this point I use Brahma powercords and Thor distributor, Tyr interconnects and speakercables. I have tried Valhalla interconnect between my amp and cd player, but it lacked a little body and sounded in my view a tad dry. I know the cable was not entirely burnt in, so this might be the reason.
There are not many possibilities borrowing cables in Norway. I have looked at Shunyata Python CX for the powercords, and Stereovox / Synergistic Research / Transparent Audio / Crystal Cable / Zensati for the interconnects. I have heard lot of good words about the ZenSati cables. Have you any experience with them?
I like the dynamics of the Valhalla, and the 3D sound. But in my wiew it had a little dip in the upper bass and the lower treble tended to be on the dry side. Due to this female vocalists sometimes lacked body. But that is in my system.
My equipment consists of Burmester 032 integrated amp, Burmester 061 cd player, Wilson Audio Sophia 2, Revox B77mk2, and the cables mentioned. I tried the same cable set up at Quad ELS 63 with Gradient sub basses, and the lack of body and dryness was still there.
I plan to upgrade my system this year to the new cd player with preamp 089 and the legendary amp 911mk3. But the sound caracteristics should be the same.
