    there is IMO "more there"

    When people ask me to describe what I hear, I compare it to a 16 x 9 palette which is 1080P. If we never see another video we would be happy with the 1080P but for me when the MB cable is there it is still a 16 x 9 platte but now it is 4K . Far more detail. That is what MB cable does for my ears

    I'm immensely enjoying listening to music with the MasterBuilt cable powering my Playback Designs DAC. Simply put, it's staying put.

    As my wife and I listen to digital sources exclusively, the aforementioned DAC (obviously) is a critical component in our system. I knew it was sensitive to vibration, which I manage with my Box Furniture Co. rack. Evidently the DAC is sensitive to its power cable as well. (I thought my Triode Wire Labs power cable was "good enough". It's not.)

    Frankly, I'm amazed. I expected (wanted) to hear little if any discernible difference with the MasterBuilt cable. But it was immediately apparent it was different, and within an hour of power, it was obviously better. Noticeably blacker background. Denser, more satisfying drum thwacks. More 'meat' on the 'bones'. In my wife's words, "There's more there." (Almost as if I had upgraded the DAC. What a relief to think I don't have to. Yet.)

    Joe, with a nod to The Monkees, I'm Believer. You and your escorted customers, and of course SFAS members are welcome to visit (Half Moon Bay) and hear what the right cord, in the right place can do. I'm now curious to hear a full set of MasterBuilt power cables in my system as well.

    Best,
    Brian


    And that’s with the entry level Performance Line!

    I’ll be getting a batch of demo cables in a week or so if anyone in the Northern California Bay Area is interested in auditioning these cables in your system.

    Cheers, Joe
    Thanks for the report Joe Send him some cables for his amp and pre and watch what he says next lol. He doesn't even know the full potential of his system yet. Fun Fun

    Dear Leif, I am diving back into this topic!

    Does MasterBuilt have its own foundry, or does its relationship with a government contractor afford it access to such other company's foundry?

    MasterBuilt doesn't own the foundry Ron and you are correct in regards to the government contractor relationship.

    Hello Leif

    I compared MB's inter connect with mine in Sonoris which is one of your dealer in Korea.
    Of course signature was the superb. But reference line was good enough. It had deep bass, wide spectrum and natural mid.
    I found the used reference balance inter in US Audio Mart. When I asked what I should check to MB, they said nothing becase it is very solid. As a result, I bought it.

    I played more than 200 hours. But the result was so terrible. Both bass and high are limited, and mid is so stiff.
    Eventhough audio cables are case by case, but this is out of my common sense.

    Can you guess why?

    I'm using Aurender N10, Mare Levinson no.30.6, Absolare Passion inti amp, Rockport Mira speakers.
