I received in perfect condition the Essence Reference II power cord last Monday. I have connected the cord to the VAC Sigma 160 amplifier and the first impression after a few hours of listening was a significant increase of dynamics. Not only that but also a wider and deeper stage.
I'm listening to my system for only a few hours each day to complete the break-in process of the Reference II. I am listening to vinyl records with my VPI Scoutmaster turntable.
I did not believe that a power cable could change and so improve the sound quality of my audio system. I'm attaching a photo of my audio system with the new SUPER Essence Reference II Power cord.
Later I would to buy the Essence Power Distributor to connect my Naim CD5Xs CD player and the Naim Flatcap 2Xs power supply.
My system includes a VPI Scoutmaster with Benz LPs cartridge - VAC Sigma 160 i SE with Phono MC - Spendor S3/5R II (To replace with Dynaudio Confidence C1 Platinum next months) Naim CD5Xs CD player Flatcap 2Xs power supply. Audience SE Cables (Speakers, analog input and power cables to CD player).
