Don, You are very welcome! _________________________________________________________________
My first #560 is plugged into my amp and directly into the wall. The second #560 is plugged into my lead Richard Gray 400s and directly into the wall. All I can say is WOW! Movies and music never sounded so open and relaxed! There is much greater dynamics, and the system sounds so much quieter now. Instead of listening to movies at 74 volume level on my Meridian, I can now listen easily at 70-72. I can also hear greater decay at the end of strings and much more natural sounding voices when listening to music.
The #560 has bested all other of my power cords ( and I have had many) in my system. I figure I still have about 2-3 more #560's to go. With a new child on the way I'll be adding them slowly to my system however.
Would you recommend a #555 or the #560 for my Meridian preamp? I am currently using a Synergistic Research AC Master Coupler on it.
I forgot to tell you about the video improvements the #560 made to my HDTV. Colors are now richer, and there is increased depth to the picture. This is an addition to what the Richard Grays did for my HDTV.
Thanks again and regards, Pete
I just wanted to let you know how glad I am with the Granite Audio power cord. I received it a couple of days ago (thank you so much for your great and quick service!) and it has proven to be nothing short of a revelation in my system. Until shortly, I have always been satisfied with my Transparent Plus power cords. They were a clear improvement over the standard power cords you get with your equipment and I thought they were the end of my search. However, after plugging the Granite Audio 555 AC cord into my pre-amplifier, I suddenly realized how much of an improvement I could still gain in my system using better power cords. In comparison to the Transparent cord, the 555 makes the sound of my hifi system much more open, deeper and wider with more highs (but none of the harshness), more lows and much more naturalness. It is as if the speakers kind of disappear and the musicians are standing in my listening room. Granite Audio makes a truly GREAT product here which I would truly recommend to everybody looking for a superb power cord.
I still have to do some serious saving, but once I have the money I think I will replace all of my Transparent power cords by those from Granite Audio!
Thanks again for all of your time and efforts; I appreciate it!
Best regards, Rainer
I love the Granite Audio #555. For the money it kills a lot of the more expensive power cords. I've tryed some very expensive power cords. The Granite Audio #555 is my favorite so far and doesn't cost an arm and a leg. Bob G. 09-01-00

Don, You are very welcome! I must stress again that getting this $800 demo PC for $XXX was a steal (outright highway robbery!) for the improvements it made to my entire system, especially as it settles more and more into my system. Hell, even $800 would be a good investment for my Meridian based system! Even my RPTV looks better than before (everything is plugged into the same dedicated power line, as I believe more than one line causes feedback loops and raises the noise floor). This is an extra bonus in addition to what the RGPC's have done for me. So the filtering of the #560 is working across the entire line.
I'm now a big believer in unrestricted power flow with the lowest noise floor possible. By the way, I've tried Cardas, Synergistic Research, the Black Mamba, Straight Wire Blue Thunders and Kimber PCs, and the #560 is by far the best I've had in my system!
You can also thank Steve Bruzonsky (I think you know him well) for suggesting your cables. I will certainly be getting more of your PCs in the future.
