Re: Does anyone have experience with Chris V. Hot Box


I am directly comparing the Hot Boxes (nickel/20amp) with the ExactPower EP15A (I know price wise they aren't in the same ballaprk).

I need to get some funds to upgrade other parts of my system, so I decided to try the Hot Boxes since I enjoy Chris' Flavor 4 cords on my amps.

So far (connecting the Hot Boxes to standard lines - dedicated lines are going in as I type) I have noticed an increase in transparency and detail, but less weight and heft to the bass. Until I put the ExactPower back in, I am not sure if the Hot Boxes are restricitng the bass or if the ExactPower was possiblt emphasizing it.

I am also hoping that the Hot Boxes will smooth out a bit as they might have a little too much detail right now.

Chris told me that they would improve greatly with the dedicated lines and with breakin (about 200 hrs or so).

I am running my two amps and two subs on one Hot Box and dac, transport, preamp, tt on the other.

I will post a full review once I get more flying time with the units.

BTW, Chris is fantastic to deal with and responds amazingly quickly - A+ customer service.
