Borderpatrol Dac SE
For the power cord I'm using my trusted Cabledyne 10 gauge pure silver cord. It's plugged into a Audioquest Niagara 5000.   
It stopped for me when I built the best system around my Nola Ko speakers. Audiolab 6000cdt, BP dac and a set amp. It took 40 years but I'm done. For now that is.  
What is your experience with amp power?
Here is my experience with SS and tube power on a pair of Nola Ko speakers. 1st I had a MF m6 series 230 wpc SS amp running them. A little forward that would fatigue my ears after a couple of hours. Next I used a 75 wpc KT 88 tube amp. I thought n... 
Borderpatrol Dac SE
I rolled in a Bugle Boy Holland ez80 rectifier tube. This definitely woke up my BP dac. I read that different rectifier tubes won't make much difference in sound quality. That is a false statement.   
Borderpatrol Dac SE
I'm new to my BP dac purchase. I installed a SR purple fuse and a mini watt ez80 tube. I'm the 2nd owner of this dac. It has only the digital coaxial input. I like it because it is a straight up musical dac. Simple hook up and has a very natural l... 
Speaker Cable Recommendations - Under 2k
With the Morrow 7 cables why would you need better cables  ?  You have a lot of money invested in cables now. Keep the Morrow cables.  
New Synergistic Master Fuse
The new Master fuse is priced out of most audiophiles budget. I bought 3 of their purple fuses. That wasn't a bad way to spend on a system tweak. But the Master of 3 fuses is way touch for this audiophile. I'll stay with the purple haze fuses.  
Solid core OFC vs stranded OCC copper
I'll vote for solid core speaker cables and interconnect cables. I vote for stranded cord power cords. Also solid core digital cable. On my tube gear feeding a pair of Nola ko speakers the solid core cables perform much nicer than stranded core ca... 
The New Synergistic Research Purple Fuses
In are audio club we call it bass ping. No boom and rumble. Just musical bass notes as they should be.  
Acoustic Curtain for listening area
I use the black out curtains in my listening room. I have them behind the speakers. Listening chair and side walls.   
Does a turntable make a DRAMATIC difference?
Unless you put huge amount of money into your tt set up it'll never sound cd quality.   
Synergistic Research Purple UEF Duplex - receptacle
I have had a conversation with one. And they said this is normal behavior for a true audiophile. So there us a perfectly clear answer. Purple power is here to stay for me.   
Amp Internal Wire
Thats 18 gauge wire not 28.  
Amp Internal Wire
I have a Jolida 502b tube amp. I rewired it with 28 gauge soild core 9n pure silver wire. The difference is night and day after the wire burned in. The amp has a new hifi sound quality.   
Brass versus copper binding posts
Those connectors are very good. The KELI connectors are very good also.
