Looking for feedback on the Stage 3 power cords . Has anybody had the chance to audition these and form an opinion . Two sources whom I checked , had one thing to say in common to their presentation " Balanced " .

I have no personal experience but I wonder what the 2 sources meant by "balanced" :confused:

"Balanced" as in the C.G set at the centre of the aural spectrum , not leaning towards the treble nor dark and brooding favouring the bass . Hope it makes sense ...

Have/head all but the lowest/highest S3 AC cables.


They are the best I have had in my system. Even the Vortex Prime @ 2nd from the bottom is a killer cable.

The S3 Kracken,I am told, will reward one with a new sounding amp/system.

Killer deal done and Sam is a great guy to deal with.

The Minotaur is an incredible cable and highly recommended!

Anyone else out there with a killer deal on S3 AC cables.?

Got the Stage iii Zyklops PC and Gryphon I/C ... still to run in , but seems to posses a smoothness and a natural full tone , am sure it will develop further.

Smart move on the Zyklops not so smart on the Gryphon. Can you return the IC and get Brian's new Thales IC.?
Afraid not . Why the observation ? Have you tried it , seems to sound OK and getting better out the box . Any experience with their Minatour Speaker cables . Hope to have a Kraken inbound soon .

AC cables are off the carts. Kraken is KING and SC's are good as IC. Thales will beat out the IC and they are working on the SC. I would wait on the Thales SC before dropping big $$$ in the S3.

Guy out in Cal. Has 8 K's .

Get rid of the IC/SC.

Glory .. I am comparing in house to Siltech Double Crown , ZenSati Seraphim & Jorma Prime so the playing field is stern an I find the S3 acquitting itself rather well compared to it's peers . I find the S3 , quite nuanced and balanced . I guess it depends on system synergy . Will keep at it longer , so that I can assess it's character better . Not to aware about the Thales , will have a look . Thanks for the heads up .
