Thanks Pete and I am so screwed!
I haven't been able to purchase much lately but through saved up monies purchased a new dac (thanks Rollo for the help). After break in, I decided to
try out a better than stock cable. Again through recommendation and reading, I contacted Pete concerning one of his cords. We wrote back and forth
and I asked if there were any used available and was informed of the 8 that he had on trade in. Now while it is used, the rework he performed on
this PC making it a Plus version really impressed me so I bought one. Now I already have three aftermarkets and the one I had available for the DAC just didn't
cut it so the plus went there first. Right out of the box (bag in this case), I knew I had something special. The PC improved in all the metaphorical areas people use when
describing exceptional equipment. I was pleased at all it brought out of my system as a whole. My wife even commented and that is a major accomplishment. The cord
is more flexible than others but retains a good heft to it and the connectors are quite good in quality and fit snugly.
If you are looking for a great PC, I can't stress enough that if he has any of these "used" cables to give them a try.
Now as to being so screwed. I have switched around the PCs to see what would happen since I use my system with various sources other than the dac (tuner,
dvd, cdp and cable) pre and amp. The improvement while on the pre enhanced the overall sound but left the dac lacking somewhat. The dilemma is the best sound through
the dac is with Pete's cable on it but then the other sources lose the detail I had while on the pre.
I will have another Triode Wire Labs cable someday (hopefully in the near future). I can't thank Pete enough for everything he helped me with. If others upgrade and more
of these cables become available, you really need to check one out for yourself, but be prepared to be screwed.
