Re: Power cord recommendations - for tube CDP, DAC

I compared the Black Sand Violet to the VH Audio Flavor 4 and the Flavor 4 were significantly better. They had better tone, soundstaging, richer detail, dynamics (and cheaper to boot). The Black Sand just didn't portray the tonal or timbral character of the music. I thought it had a synthetic sound. A friend and I listened on two tube-based systems and agreed that the Flavor 4s were more involving. I was very surprised since I've really not heard anything negative about the violets. I took advantage of John's return policy and he said mine was the first return in 2006 so they obviously sound great in many systems. Besides, John's a great person to deal with. But then again, so is Chris.
