  1. The umbilicals supplied are 33cm end to end (including connectors), or 23cm if measuring just the cable between the connectors (including the very short sleeves). The cables are directional in the sense that there are arrows on the connectors at both ends to show what end plugs into what box (arrows pointing from bigger transformer box to the smaller box). This is the same for the longer 50cm upgrade cables I am currently trying out.
  2. The new DC4 from Sean Jacobs - http://www.custom-hifi-cables.co.uk/home/power-supplies/dc4-power-supply
  3. Still waiting for my single-regulated 2-rail SR7 to arrive from PHD Ltd - they were hoping to get it to me before Christmas. When it does arrive I will be comparing it powering my Chord M Scales and my tX-USBultra (or the OPTO.DX transmitter) with the SR7 plugged into my Shunyata UK6 distribution block and into a non-dedicated wall socket. At the moment, the SR4 powering my M Scaler sounds cleaner (better) plugged unto the UK6, which connects to the wall socket via an unfiltered Shunyata Alpha EF.
  4. @PeterStHi Peter. In rearranging my music system I managed to disconnect some of the connections on my Lush^2. I’ve reconnected in the way I think they were for the default A: B-W-Y-R, B: B-W-R. Can you tell me if I’ve put things back correctly. Thanks.
  5. I had for some time been wanting to get the best 2-rail supply I could and finally decided to go for it, unfortunately too late to get a custom-build double-regulated SR7. It was a toss-up between an SR7 and a DC3, and I went for the SR7 because I already own an SR4-12 and am very pleased with it. I also have a 15V Farad Super3 and two Pilot Pro 2 battery packs. I expect the SR7 to be another step up from all of those.
  6. Finally went for a 2-rail standard-build SR7. Ordered and paid for on 22nd October. PHD Ltd have told me that the transformer has been ordered and they will try to get the supply to me before Christmas.
  7. I finalised and paid for my order for a 2-rail (15V & 12V) standard-build SR7 on 22nd October. I have been told that the transformer has already been ordered and that PHD Ltd will try to get the supply to me before Christmas.
  8. You can see what must be the 1m Chord umbilicals at about 6.50 on this Youtube video taken at last weekend’s UK Hifi Live Show
  9. Has anyone any experience of comparing the umbilicals made by Chord Company with the cables supplied with the Statement?
  10. Thanks for the update. I’m pleased for you to hear this but depressed for me as I’ve only just put in an order for a 2-rail standard build SR7 (12V and 15V). I’ve had one or two near misses on picking up a relatively low-number custom build but have now given up hope on that. Just hoping that the standard SR7 will provide a significant improvement over my SR4-12 and 15V Farad Super3.
  11. A helpful post. One thing you mentioned that I had previously asked Chord Company about is the umbilical cable they make. I think I understand it is just the longer length cable that is shielded/screened in the way you describe. I assume from your mention of intending to separate the Statement boxes that you have the longer length cables.
  12. Have you ever heard any of the Paul Hynes PSUs and have a basis for commenting on how they compare to Sean’s DC3? I find myself in two minds again now that I have learned that the Paul Hynes SR5s and standard-build SR7s are available to order from PHD Ltd, and have seen the info sheets for these.
  13. So Paul confirmed the SR4 was up to the task of powering the TT2. Can I take from anything he reported back to you that my 5V-12V SR4 would also be up to the task? I expect my 15V Farad Super3 with silver cable would beat it powering the TT2 but would still be good to know just how far I could push the SR4.
  14. @nvitorinoNuno, would be great to have your comments once you’ve had chance to look into this.
