To Howard Kneller,
I just read your excellent review of the EMM Labs DAC2X.
I own one and have really enjoyed it, playing everything from Red Book to native-DSD files. I was interested in the cable upgrade you recommended. I am using the stock Cardas PC.
You mentioned that the Synergistic Research Element Copper-Tungsten-Silver digital cable was a solid upgrade. However, I did not see it making your Buying Guide, while the Infinite power cord did. I wanted to see which power cable would be the best for this DAC. Thank you for your help.
I think that you will be amazed in the improvement that you get with the Synergistic Research Element power cord. It would make a great match for the DAC2X. The Cardas cord is good, but it's not in the same class as the Synergistic. Nor is it meant to be. The Synergistic cord is much more expensive.
The Synergistic cord did not make our Buying Guide only because has not been reviewed here on any of the SoundStage! Network sites.
If you do try the Synergistic cord, please let me know how you like it. . . . Howard Kneller
