Chord powerhouse m6 or S6

Not to dry hair of course, but Naimees got to bend that NACA5 somehow!

The Chord Signature mains lead for my loan M6 arrived today.

Initial impressions are that it provides a significant step up from the Epic mains cable previously supplied.

More benchmark tests to be done but looking positive so far.

I always forget Shunyata is based practically in my backyard…

Really ought to get a listen . Talk to Richard Rogers, great guy.

Actually I’m going to give him a call tomorrow.

Cool!! I’ll be interested in what he recommends for your system.

Pete brings a new meaning to Don Corleone’s reference to Luca Brasi’s MO. He makes an offer that can’t be refused. :joy:

I’m also using one on my M6 and for a laugh I tried one on the NAPSC that powers my Headline. Oh. My. Word. :laughing:

As Dave said above: “Do not go near Music” - you cannot unhear it !

Chord Music is too rich for my blood - I use a MCRU ‘The First’ on mine and very happy I am too.

The M6 is great in my system. Slowly but surely I’ve converted to only using a single dedicated supply ( I have four) with everything in the block. I found sequence relevant . I’ve gone
S1-500p/s -555p/s(a)- 300p/s ( Solstice)-Supercap(Superline)-555p/s(d)

I don’t want to derail this thread but there is a dealer “only” 300 miles away where I can take a look/listen. With my Naim equipment/budget he recommended the Venom PS10 however I was thinking the Hydra Delta D6 which will likely be in the same price range as the Chord powerhouse when/if it becomes available in North America.

@Richard.Dane How would I contact someone privately? Thanks

I’d hold fire; I heard that both S6 and M6 are going through the safety approval process in the US and should be available there soon. If that is the case, you really should try to get to hear an M6, it’s fabulous.

Thanks Dave! I really hope it doesn’t cost more than a black box. We in North America get screwed on duty/shipping/taxes etc.

When I was at the Bristol Show, I attended a Chord demo (which incidentally had the best sounding Naim-based system at the event) and someone asked if they’d be making them for the US. I didn’t catch the price, if the question was asked.
