Just switched on the system and put a vinyl of Luka Bloom, Riverside. I am more and more impressed how much difference the Siltech cable brings when connected to the phonostage...is like a upper and lower limit has been removed and the sound is much more "dynamic" than before in terms of peaks...acoustic guitar is simply so accurate...voice goes higher without being harsh...magic is happening...
You will never convince the sceptics of this, but I know exactly what you are experiencing, except in my case, it was from my amp....must be a shared illusion.
It might be worth asking your Jadis dealer what he has found re power cords and your particular amp.

Good idea, I will send an email now!
When there is no music playing everything is so quiet that when a new instrument kicks in I almost get scared by the impact...I also moved up the ladder with the 550i interconnect now (as I gave the 330i to Rob)
It is still improving as it's warming up...oh my god the acoustig guitar is absolutely amazing...so clear and musical...voice is growing in presence and warmth...every instrument has its place but the mix is so musical.....
When the guitar is pinched you can really feel the vibrations and the intensity the guitarist is using to play...can't describe this but I am loving it so much...it seems like the system was constantly on handbreak before these last few days...
But I am sure it's all an impression and it is just a placebo effect...nothing of this is real...
and I'm constantly wondering why none of the "audiophile" cables manufacturers (with exception of of Atlas and Kimber, and maybe few others that I'm not aware of) never give measurements of their products. I would most gladly see frequency responses of those "wonders". also it would be good to find out about relation between inductance and capacitance.

Cardas give fairly comprehensive info about their products.....and I agree with you about Atlas. I have met John Carrick, and he knows his stuff (as well as being a gentleman).
Just an update of my cables research...for sure the SPX800 is a keeper, the difference behind the phonostage is huge...haven't decided for the amp yet. Quite unimpressed with the Black Mamba to be honest...it didn't bring that much I was expecting...I might just stick a good copper cable behind it (around 100 euro).
Still open the loudpseaker/interconnect...with Siltech 550L/i being the sweet spot probably for me. The difference between the 770i and the 550i is noticeable but not enough to justify the price difference between the two cables...

For a little under your budget, I recommend this:
For a little over (my preference):
Nb. Can be bought on 60 day trial.....have a word with Darren if you wish (knowledgeable and helpful)
Might be interesting if they also ship to Belgium and also here the 60 day money back guarantee is valid...I will try to talk to Darren.
Tell him what your amp is, the wall plug you have, and the fuse rating you need (if applicable).
Can I mention that you gave me suggestion to contact him? Always works better...
If you like, but he will have no idea who CnoEvil is....and even with my real name, he mightn't remember.
I remember him though as being very sound and helpful to deal with...it's worth asking if he has anything lying around he can do a deal on.....I mooched one that had been a cancelled special order.
Any word from Vertere?......i hope I picked up the email address correctly!
Ah ok, I though you knew him in person. No problem that, I will drop him a line and see how he reacts, thanks a lot for that.
This cable looks like a real nice one, dod you ever try one?
I've dealt with him a bit by phone, so know him on that level.
If you are referring to the mains cable....I have a Copper-Line and a couple of Copper-Line Alphas.
Copper Line Alpha with Furtech plug on TV
Copper Line Alpha on Sub
Copper Line with Furutech F8 on Skybox.
IMO. The quality of the connectors on the ends makes a marked difference...though the best ones are pretty expensive......you need to talk this over with Darren in order to see what is likely to suit.
Copper Line Alpha Plus on Sub

What difference did the copper line alpha make to your tv and what additional difference was there when you added the furutech plug?
