First impressions.

I just upgraded my speaker cable to Shunyata Sigma from the Zitron Anaconda, and this added a much more precise edge to the music. That is, the instruments, and voices, are now really striking in where they are in the air. If I could draw on air I think I could outline each note. This can’t be right. Something must be broken. LOL

The bass is certainly more pronounced and defined, and the mids or highs are just clearer, more distinct, and solid in the location in the air.

I can’t swear to this, but I think I am hearing more at a lower volume setting than before.

While Shunyata says they now use a technology to achieve break-in, I think they are sounding better tonight (Saturday) versus last night. They arrived Thursday morning, and have played nonstop since noon Thursday.

I admit that I was a bit hesitant to upgrade since the system sounded so good as it was, and I just upgraded my pre from a Pass XP-20 to the XP-22. However, I feel a lot better now, and just need a few more beers to convince myself to order three pair of Sigma XLR ICs. :)
