Received the Venom 3 yesterday. I grabbed my camera for photoshoot.

OK, here is my initial impression about the Venom 3 power cord after listening for the first 3 hours.
Keep in mind that this cord was connected from my cheap powerstrip to the back of my HTPC's power supply.
Immediate difference I noticed was the background instrument come up strong, almost overtaking some of the instruments in the foreground. No it doesn't sound garbled up or anything, each instrument is pretty well defined / articulated. There is increased crispness and strong upper frequencies. The treble has sparks and is good sounding, like chewing a fresh bulk of salary rather than chewing apple? if that makes any sense. This was very notable in *some* of the songs not all. In some other songs I couldn't seem to tell the difference.
No I didn't get the extra oomph in the bass department. The bass didn't come as strong as I hoped. There is not much of impact. Maybe this is why some review / end user mentioned that these cords sound a bit lean.
Maybe the bass impact and weight will increase after burn-in? I don't know. Maybe because I only have one Venom cord connected? to the PC? and not the powered speakers?
Treble is plenty, but I wish it had more weight and punch in the bass line.. like I've said, this is only the first 3 hours of use. I left the PC on before heading to work.
