My healthy skepticism was in full force when I installed by first set on speaker cables alone, so the resulting improvement in detail, blacker background and more natural transients were stunning. As I added the DF-SS v2s to my power cords and then a few more to the speaker cables, I got the proverbial "what'd you do" from my music-loving wife. I was a skeptic on this aspect of vibration control, but the DF-SS v2 is the real deal and now you'd have to pry them from my cold hard-wood floors. Best tweak in years.
    Completely agree. I have had the 1st gen Shunyata DFS for over 6 years primarily for the speaker cables. Earlier today I inserted the new DFS on the right channel speaker cable doing a A/B comparison between the L/R channels using the balance feature on the remote of the CJ GAT. The difference is not subtle it's pretty dramatic. Higher gain, clarity and definition. This is a no brainer. Next stop a few DFSS v2s under the power cables. Highly recommended

    Wondering if putting rubber bands across the gap of the DFS would do anything like the band on the new models?
