I was never able to tell the difference with the DAC power cables being switched, but with the V200 and the WA2, I picked the correct cable every time; 7 out of 7.  As I said before, it was most noticeable during the silence between the tracks.  Perhaps my stock cable was defective, but it was very obvious each time.

 

I've done the same thing with interconnects and USB cables, but have never been able to distinguish any audible differences.

Wow, that's really amazing.  I like that you're honest about what you can and can't hear.  Thank you for sharing your experience.  In my case, it could be that the stock PC I had was pretty good quality therefore I couldn't hear diff in blind test.

You definitely have better hearing than me, I tried both Ironlung Jellyfish and Shunyata Venom-HC, I can't tell a difference from Powerplant to WA22.  Good thing Music Direct have great return policy, got a full refund of Shunyata Venom-HC.

 

However I can tell the difference between wall outlet and Powerplant.

You are not alone.  I am there with you and glad we saved ourselves quite a bit of money.  :D

I don't think I have any better hearing than average; as I mentioned above, it may have been that the stock power cord was defective in some way.  It's possible that some cheaper replacement cords would have done the trick.  But the lack of of noise in the background when the Shunyatas were put in the chain was so obvious anyone would have heard it.

That was too bad, but you have a brand new one. I bet it has the new car smell. biggrin.gif

Hehe it's a used one, but I still felt that new car feeling. The yulong da8 is new.
