Now I have had the (Essence Reference) Distributor for over 3 weeks and the (Essence Reference) cords for over 2 weeks. I have played a lot of music and when I'm not at home I have put in Ayre's burning in CD.
The Distributor did a great job with both my stereo system but also TV and DVD. The dynamics were much better and the presentation of the whole music improved a lot. I have read Mark Mickelson's reviews of both units. He thinks the Distributor made the biggest job here, but when I swapped my normal cords to yours, oh my god. First, I noticed much much more dynamics and deeper bass but a bit blurred. I knew they need some time one them. This weekend everything came in place - dynamics are there, the bass slam is now much tighter and midrange very natural. The highs are extremely real without being to edgy.
I have tried a lot of both electronics and cables in my years of hifi, but I have never noticed such a big improvement in my system, and we are "only" talking about power distribution here. I am very impressed with your products Michael.
I don't know if the units are 100% ready yet but if they will improve more I'm in heaven.
Michael - can't you start making interconnect and speaker cables soon? Thanks
