I am using SCM25A Pros with the Audience PowerChord E. I am looking to upgrade to something neutral, neutral, neutral. Also, due to the configuration of the studio, I need something that will readily bend at the IEC end. Would love to use LessLoss, but not flexible enough...
i'm using studio monitors as well (Focal CMS 65), and tried several high quality screened power cords
(Oyaide Tunami, Acoustic Revive, etc.), but settled on one unscreened one:
VH Audio Flavour 4, which i DIY myself to save some money and also to try several plugs;
i finally settled with Oyaide 079 both schuko and IEC; highly recommended!
Oyaide Black Mamba V2 was designed to be very neutral and flexible enough to use in a recording studio environment. There are two versions, and the power cable is also available in bulk length for DIY.
It's an ideal power cord for powered studio monitors.
Oyaide Black Mamba-Alpha V2
Oyaide Black Mamba-Sigma V2
Oyaide Black Mamba V2 Bulk
The Oyaide R0 AC outlet would be perfect for either the Alpha or Sigma Black Mamba power cords for a recording studio application. The Oyaide R0 features unplated beryllium copper contacts just like the Sigma version AC connectors, and the unplated brass blades of the Alpha version would likely sound better optimized by the Oyaide R0 AC outlet.
Excellent prices can be found here (see link):
Finally decided to pull the trigger on an unplated Oyaide R0 Beryllium AC outlet.
Looking forward to evaluating it when used with a VH Audio AirSine power cord terminated with old-school Wattgate Gold Audio Grade AC connectors, and a newer Oyaide Black Mamba V2 power cord terminated with SOTA Furutech FI-50 Gold AC connectors. Since this might also free-up a platinum + palladium plated Oyaide R1 Beryllium AC outlet socket in a power distributor for another application, it might be a win-win proposition. It does not get any better than this from an audiophile anticipation POV.
Best price found (see link):
I'm anticipating its arrival too. I am really curious about your impression of it paired with the Black Mamba. Your tip on the Mamba was dead-on. I ended up with three of them and really love them. Tremendous bang for buck.
I'll try the factory-terminated Black Mamba-Sigma V2 with unplated beryllium copper AC connectors when plugged into the R0 and include it in a report. However, I won't be able to evaluate the configuration as fairly and insightfully as I would like to, since I'll have to swap-out the factory-terminated Black Mamba-Sigma V2 placed on my iMac with a DIY Black Mamba V2 terminated with Furutech FI-50 Gold AC connectors, so the differences may be out of context. That said, I'll still get an impression of the general performance level and potential synergy, and might even like that configuration better. I also look forward to your evaluation of the R0, Sondek. Do you plan to install it at the wall, or in a power line distributor?
Considering installing in my PurePower 1500+. Have an R1 at the wall in a WPCZ and a length of Tunami terminated with 004's supplying the PurePower. My Acoustat servos are conned to the PurePower with factory Mamba Sigmas. The servos have Oyaide inlets and internal AC connectors. Did I mention I'm a big Oyaide fan?
Installed the new Oyaide R0 AC outlet in my power distributor with a 0.1uf Wima MP3-X2 filter capacitor secured across the live and neutral terminals, and even without any burn-in, I like what I hear. I'm sure the evaluation process will be an enjoyable thing, and will post a report in Cable Asylum after ample burn-in time.
