Grounded Speaker Cable
The 14s are also better in their inductance measurements according to Cap. If you like the 12s, the 14s are just sweeter sounding. The new interconnects are also worth considering. I really think Cap has knocked it out of the park with these new c... 
Audio envy - dang!
@nutty I had been asking Cap to make a pair of Model 34 SC, but was able to get SP14s and the prototype ICs. With the new Okta and PCs, this is the best I’ve heard from AE  
A Sonic Revelation: M101 LAN Cable Review
It was a very good room at CAF these last two years. One thing I can’t wrap my head around is the difference the LAN cable is still making even with $50k+ of his power cords all over the floor. I guess the LAN cord is the gateway drug.

Also, Cap mentioned some new speaker cables called model 34. I had seen these at CAF when I visited the Endow Audio room, but he mentioned that these should be on the site next month.

Cap has some new power cords on the site called Ocean Expanded. I received a couple of them on Thursday and they have proven to be a step up in detail and clarity from the Ocean Elite. More information is coming through on the high end.  
Who is excited about Capital Audiofest 2023?
Really good show, I was able to see a lot of rooms on Friday and Saturday. Quality was really good across the board. Many really solid rooms.   The MBL room was very impressive, but maybe a tad too much treble. Otherwise was a very impressive roo... 
New Synergistic Master Fuse
Has anyone combined an M1 with the Master Fuse? I like the M1 much more than the purple.  
Cen. Grand DSDAC 1.0 (vs Pontus II)
Bumping this one up. Anyone been able to compare the Cen.Grand against other Denafrips models or any comparable  brand for that matter? I am looking at getting the base model, which would be on the lower side of my budget. I’m also considering DAC... 
Puritan Ultimate Power Cable
I’ll be interested to get your take. I have definitely found the other two levels below to be very smooth, not seeming to take anything away from the music.  
Has Tweek Geek stop selling QSA products?
Agreed, Mike is great to work with. He’s was all in on QSA.  
Has Tweek Geek stop selling QSA products?
Just got a response from Mike, he’s no longer carrying QSA. Seems to be complicated, but ultimately seems this partnership stopped being beneficial for both sides.  
Silversmith Fidelium
@mrotino how long did you have the cables for. I actually found the break in time to be quite long, weeks of consistent use each day.  
Choosing new cables
Might as well throw in Hemingway as a viable contender for that budget. Z core Alpha cables would come in around or a bit more than your budget. Lot of interesting cables through Gestalt though…  
The best plug in filter ever!
Many people would be happy with these in their system. I just received mine last night. Mark has been a customer service champ, explaining the whole DHL snafu.    I need to compare these two Purons with my QSA Silver plug-in, but it is definitely... 
The best plug in filter ever!
Put my order in, waiting for Mark to ship.  Anyone using this with QSA power adapters?  Also, anyone have experience using their other product, Fuse Box?
