for the Flavors 1, 2, and 3

Chris`s flavor 2 PC was part of my Yamaha receiver upgrade which included 3 Soler Points stainless steel cones to replace those cheap plastic feet, an Acme cryo silver IEC terminal installation from Dedicated Audio, and of course a flavor 2 VHAudio 5' preassembled power cord to replace the stock zipcord. The instant I plugged the PC in, there was an immense improvement in the clarity of my soundstage. A much more defined separation of the soundstage from all 6 speakers was realized. The highs initially were a little too much but have smoothed out after the first week. But the clarity from my Bose is amazingly clear, just super clean. I find this $69 flavor 2 power cord to be very satisfying for the price. I find it hard to believe I could have done better for the price. Thanks Chris for all the advise and for an excellent power cord! Regards, Robin

Product Weakness: ABSOLUTELY NONE
Product Strengths: crystal clear highs with a cleaner presentation of the soundstage
