That QR looks fantastic; that is my favorite color scheme and what I picked for the QR-s I just added to the system.

Congratulations and enjoy your new QR!

Fed Ex just delivered my QR can't wait till it's broke in .
Very nice system Rau, I am eager to hear your impressions. What cable did you replace?

I was using a Sigma NR V2 but going direct to wall I wanted to upgrade. Sound signature at this time is not best but part of break in process. I will post in a couple weeks again

It's a little crowded back there
Yes it matters. Cable spacers and crossing at right angjes.
I setup the risers last night for the QR , I think I'll be very happy with cable . Right now it's sound keeps changing but when it's good its excellent. Better bottom end for sure and sound stage left to right is stronger .

Great.
I wish pc did not work. Even more so I wish I knew why they do. Scientist need to take their head out of the sand.
With respect to price. A cure for cancer will always cost more than a cure for the common cold. No matter what the R and D budget is. You can base your price on the 'value' of the product t.

I'm curious what the contribution is of the sliding filter (is that the correct term). On other cable systems where there is a sliding EMI filter, the filter location is critical to the final sound. Is this the case for the Omega QR as well?

There is no sliding portion on the QR or QR-s cables that I am aware of and my QR-s that I purchased earlier this year certainly does not have it.

The only 'adjustable' aspect is where you place the 3 cable lifters that come with every Omega power cable.
