I find that the power cord on my tubed headphone amp has a major affect on its sound. For those with a similar experience,
what cords have you found that have a controlled non-soft non-mushy bass but still have mellow sweet non-forward upper mids & highs on phones like HD800s, T1s, and D7000s? And of course, I am also looking for a refined sound.
I have been using various generations of Shunyata Anacondas and some Stealth cords, and they seem to be good in either one area or the other. Some cheaper cords just don't have the refinement I hear in the better ones.
It's not that any of these are un-listenable by any means, I'm just looking for a cord that can give me the best in both of these sonic aspects.
It's funny how much more sensitive tubed headphone amps are to power cords than solid state ones (but there is still a significant difference for solid state also).
