Amused, the benefits you describe are pretty much the same as the Hicap DR should do. I'm looking forward to your report here!
Absolutely, I will report as soon as I get the Snaic4 to connect the HCDR.
Regarding the TQ UB, the cable has been playing non stop for the past 30 hours or so. The difference from yesterday is very noticeable, the mild harshness it demonstrated when first connected has almost gone away. As I said before, the ability of this cable to extract details is absolutely staggering! The sound coming out is holographic, it puts you right there with the musicians, as if you are in the front row seat on a live concert. The stereo separation is tremendous. As to the downsides, it lacks a bit of slam and energy, and the bass could be more powerful. But perhaps it's too early to comment on that as the cable needs proper burning in. However, it is extremely open and transparent, it gives a very black background and the clarity it produces is on a whole new level.
Two upgrades coming next week: HCDR (eagerly anticipated) and a used Powerline. Now that should be interesting.
