Has anyone tried the Gotham power cable or interconnect with Pontus II? How does it alter the sound ?

Please tell me about the indicators (LEDs) OS/NOS and PHASE.

1) With the light bulb glowing over OS/NOS, which mode is selected?
2) When the phase is not inverted, should the light bulb be lit or should it be extinguished?

To me it seems to be a simulation of a receiver for a remote control 🤣
But it is just a print without function

Well, i can live with it. The soundquality of the Pontus II is still 👌 to me.

Yes, you are completely right)

PS

The mesh was meant for remote control infrared sensor but it was never implemented as DENAFRIPS like to keep it simple and sweet KISS - for sound quality concerns.
Many thanks.

Yours sincerely,

Gotham GAC-2 UltraPro Hi-End→1.5mXLR

I feel like there is a sense of transparency and a more three-dimensional soundstage appears in front of me.
The “ambience” feels very beautiful.
There is no "high-frequency emphasis" that is common with high-end cables.

”Aging"takes time.
Please evaluate after turning on the power for about 72 hours.

Product description of the site I purchase from.
Gotham GAC-4/1(PRO)

EMT 4-core cable "reprint version".
It can only be described as perfect in terms of clarity, extension of the high range, powerful low range, naturalness of the vocal range, flat feeling, resonance, and airiness.
The cable has a PVC jacket, polyethylene insulation, four Star-Quad conductors, double seeding, and a combination of technologies that can be considered as a cable.
Please use GAC-2PUR for distances up to about 5m. For secondary connections such as between pre-power and power, use this GAC-2PUR, and for long distances exceeding 10m, use GAC-4/1.


The price is about the same
