May I seek your advises, I have 2 powelines and 1 powerline lite, which devices should I use the PL?
SN2, Hicap Dr and ND5XS
I did a A/B test of PL goes into Hicap or ND5XS with PL on SN2, seems putting the PL into ND5XS gives a more details of the music where when the PL is plugged into Hicap, it gives more energy. Will do further testing to use the 2 PL into Hicap and ND5XS and lite on SN2 , what are your advises?
I have anything plugged into Isotek Sigmas, thank you everyone.
I’d say Hicap and ND5XS. Presumably the hicap is providing all the key power to the SN.
Your SN2 doesn’t need a power cable, because it’s powered by the hicap.
So you need only 2 PL.
The SN still requires a power lead when used with HiCap
Hi cap only powers the pre amp so the power amp still needs power…try both Power-Line on the sn2 and hicap…
Nd and hicap is my guess but try without the isoteck to check if it’s losing you dynamics and if it’s actually worth using.
Thanks, I didn’t know that.
I would put the lite on the hicap and the two powerlines on the source and amp.
The source and amp will make use of the juice boost, while the pre stage already has the juice boost from the hicap.
The SN power amp section takes a lot more current than the other two items, plus it’s constantly variable with music & volume, therefore the SN must have one of the Powerlines.
The ND5 load is very light & hardly varies, & the same for the HiCap, it’s only powering the SN preamp section.
That means which one has the other Powerline, I would let your ears decide. Then please post what you find.
Get one more, that’s my advise.
Thank you all for your advises, and again the PL does make a lot of differences, just love the PL
