Well, this is disappointing. I managed to free up an outlet in my apartment, and thanks to the moron who painted over all the outlets, I couldn't get the damn Power 3 cord in! Tried several outlets, no luck with any of them. I'm pissed.
At any rate, the only option presently available to me is it plug the power 3 into the crappy power strip I'm using. I'm hesistant to make observations in this configuration, as there seems to be little point to having a good pc plugged into a crappy surge protector. In the limited listening I've done, I haven't really noticed any discernible differences, though obviously this could be the result of my less-than-perfect current configuration. It could also mean that the Cambridge isn't "high-end" enough to benefit from a better cable. I haven't tried the cable plugged into the ZOTL, but certainly will when I'm able to plug the pc directly into an outlet. I'll likely be stopping by Hirsch's place this weekend, and from what I hear Dusty may be coming as well, so I hope to get their impressions.
