Rick: Can't wait for you to get back down to Texas and start your sonic adventure. I must ask...what are you doing in NH...did they let you out on "good behavior"?

I'll be especially interested in your thoughts on the Shunyata Defender, hope everything works as planned. My latest lust is the Shunyata Venom Digital power cord...I think I'll order one later this month.

Also, very interested in your upcoming SCXL/SCXXL audition. Will you be an new SCXXL owner? time will tell.

That's awesome! Enjoy the new cables! I bought the Audioquest NRG4 for the Triton 3 and sound fantastic. They do take a little bit of time to break in.

Hi, Anthem

I really like the banter between you, Wayne and T Cobe on your "Currently Playing" thread! Good stuff.

RE NH, I guess you could call it "good behavior". We have a place on a lake, overlooking the mountains.. calm, peaceful and COOL compared to TX summers. We come here every summer. Back when I had a Bose 901 based system in TX, I really did't mind listening in NH to a Harmon Kardon soundbar or a Bose wave... but I really wish now I could pack up my GEt system in TX into a small suitcase and bring it with me! I'm not complaining, though. We love it here summers.

Re the SCXXL, I really wanted to test it vs. my SCXL in MY system, and Audio Systems has obliged.The SCXXL will be sitting there waiting for me to listen when I get back (my wife is getting back first). Thanks, Audio Systems! I can't wait to hear it.

I'll be especially interested in your opinion on the Shunyata Venom digital power cord, and how it compares to the Venom 3.

More to follow. I'll audition the Shunyata Defender, Venom 3, and the SCXXL separately.

Next after that is speaker cable and interconnect upgrades. I've about decided on the Ultra Speaker Cables from Signal Cable (thanks, Wayne!).

NH to TX, that is a LONG walk!!!! Happy Trails!!!!!
I know what you mean to want to be back home and listen to your favorite music on your own GEt system!!!!! Been there too many times.
Can't wait to hear your take on the XXL and the cords.
Safe travels, God Bless, Wayne

Rick,

I'm excited to hear your impressions on the power cables and the SCXXL. My guess is the SCXXL isn't going back to the dealer...

As for the Shunyatas, I hope you also find them a significant improvement. That would be in inexpensive upgrade but it would be time consuming to find a way to hide them... I was recently at a doctors appointment and they had the same looking plugs going to their exam tables. The clear plugs and visible wires are just ugly and the institutional blue versions are even worse. Hopefully they sound pretty. You can always turn the lights down low and enjoy them that way. :huh:

Safe travels and happy listening, Rick!

Cheers,

T Cobe

Alright, Rick (aka rjohn79395), you were due home on the 19th and had a homework assignment due upon arrival. It's now the 21st and still no report? What gives? We need a report on the Venom 3s and SCXXL. Don't tell us the dog ate your homework or that you've been too busy to listen to the system you've been missing all Summer.... :laugh:

Hopefully you had a safe trip and are just too busy enjoying your system to share your results with us. Happy listening and report back when you can.

Cheers,

T Cobe
