just got my 3m ps audio statement powercord, oh boy its big, stiff and heavy , can't really lift the cable up with 1 hand.
a nice improvement over the zu mother soundwise, fuller bass and smoother vocals...speed and details are similar.

If it was a REAL power cord, he could use it in place of the bar on the bench press!

curious as to what the mother was lackin'?...to make you want to wander?...& left wonderin' what your current system specs are?...

i've got a new zu mother that i acquired via auction...don't doubt your results...just would like to know the surroundin' circumstances...as in what's plugged into what....

also, what's the price comparison?...

zu mother has good speed and detail, BUT it is more noisy (not enough shielding), smears up the cymbals and vocals a bit (sibilance) and doesn't have the bass magic like the ps audio statement...
i am using both of them on my headroom max, well statement is much more expensive than the mother , guess thats why.

Man, this is really overkill . I mean a 5KW airconditioning unit uses a smaller powercord. Can you still bend the thing? I hope you could post pics of it installed on your Max.

Damn, thats one big PC! The cord is as big as it plug, and PS Audio's plugs are huge.

ps audio loves to stuff lots of copper and multiple shielding layers into their cords and cables, thats why they are HUGE .

Damn, the PS Audio PC looks like one of them high voltage power lines you see outside in the streets

Heheh, the best part is when I first plugged in my PS Audio Plus cable (which is "thinner" than the Statement!) it nearly pulled my amp off of the table from it's weight.
