  1. I think you are in a good place with the original Venom Digital on your Aurender. The Ztron Alpha is likewise a good choice with the Mytek/Rossi. When there is an analog stage DTCD matters more than noise reduction. The Alpha is better than the Venom in that area. Which flavor of the Alpha is it? There were 3: HC, Digital, Analog. Music Direct gave you good advice. DTCD is dynamic transient current delivery. This is essentially the ability of the power cord to deliver current to meet transient demands. This quality improves as you move up their lineup. Their current series
  2. I think it depends on a number of factors. The system’s noise floor and how much the component itself is impacting this matter a lot. Even with the use of a Denali V1, there was a noticeable reduction of noise floor by swapping a V14D for a V10NR on the Farad Super3 (also a Supercapacitor based supply) powering my Chord HMS. Their noise reduction power cords actually filter what’s coming out of the component, so it’s more of a case of every component benefitting - as if the power conditioner got a helping hand. The HMS is known to generate noise so I guess it shouldn’t have come as a surpr
  3. Your best bet would be to seek advice at the Shunyata forums at either AudioAficionado or AudioShark. The Shunyata owners there really know their stuff. Also Caelin from Shunyata is active on both those forums. Here’s a great post from Caelin on the current state of things. Below is what he had to say about power cords for “digital only” components. It should be noted that it is most certainly true that more expensive cords may give you better results than their V14 Digital with some components. The Taiko Extreme is a great example of a “digital only” product that benefits from a
  4. I went through a period where just about every upgrade moved me a few steps forward in most areas but a step backwards in the bass. I think I finally moved past that last year after moving my speakers and also adding ASC isothermal tube traps. For two many years I neglected my room. Quite astonishing the improvements once I did focus on the room though.
  5. Interesting observations - thanks for sharing. It’s my understanding that the new NR V2 have shifted the Shunyata house sounds more in the speed/PRAT direction with the change to a different conductor. One has to stretch to at least their $1000 Delta to get that though. I plan to get one or two next year. The Venom V10 and V12 NR generally deliver a really good bang for the buck. I’ve tried them both and ended up with a V12 NR on both my home theater receiver and the Farad powering my TT2.
  6. Shunyata's V14 Digital might be better in this application. The V14D includes a different filter that comes from their medical division. It's intended for "digital only" components (no analog stage). I was able to compare the V14D to an NR V12 on the Farad Super3 powering my M-Scaler. There was a noticeable reduction in the noise floor. I'm using a V14D on the Farad Super3 powering my EtherRegen as well. The V14D is priced at $250 and in my system it punches above its weight.
  7. There is no seller feedback mechanism on this forum. All we have to go on is trust that sellers will keep their word. My forewarnings had that in mind. In subsequent discussions with the seller, he explained the circumstances and apologized. Apology accepted as this was more of a simple mistake and I’ve made plenty of those myself.
