Looking at your post all I see is profanity. My experience is more similar to Ron Carter's I suspect:\n\n“I use a very percussive, chordal,\nhammer-on and harmonic bass technique.\nAll the different nuances are more pronounced\nand audible with the Reference-II cord.\nThis cable’s consistently clean sound aids the amp\nto produce a truer bass sound.”\n\nLegendary jazz bassist Ron Carter uses The Essence Reference-II as an integral part of his live performance rig.\nor Keith Jarrett:\n\n"Special Thanks\nTo Michael Griffin\nOf Essential Sound Products\nFor Use Of\nEssence Power Cords"\nKeith Jarrett\n\nKeith Jarrett was using The Essence in his High-End Audio system. The legendary jazz pianist decided to use the cords to power the recording gear for this solo piano project "The Melody At Night With You" (ECM 1675). The cords were then sent to ECM for mixing and mastering the project.\n\nYou know what these guys have in common? Intelligence, talent, and power cords.
