  1. Buy with confidence. The Gieseler psu is best in class. I have not had experience with his other products but Clay's psu is up there with the best in the world at the same price point imo. Keep in mind that lps are not created equal and unfortunately the quality of the sq outcome is very much affected by the quality of that seemingly insignificant device.
  2. Has anyone tried the furutech ncf boosters? This covid lockdown is taking a toll on my wallet.. ha.. ha..
  3. This is a great thread. It was only until 6 months ago I started experimenting with power plugs that it made me realize what a massive it difference it can make. I always thought the cables logically should make a difference as carriers of current. The first furutech plug I inserted into my system was a fl15 plus gold UK ac plug. I immediately heard blacker background and more relaxed yet more defined presentation by just changing one plug out of the 7 sets in my system. The floodgates opened after that, I swapped all the iec plugs and ac plugs to furutech ncf and non ncf. I heard an improvement at every step. I have tried Oyaide ac plugs but could never detect any difference in sq. Furutech plugs are the very low hanging juicy fruit imo in the hifi world. It solved my disgusting bass bloat problem in my sq.
  4. Further information: The image is from Partsconnexion Canada the where I purchased most of my audio gear from over the last decade. Please note that this model is the NCF version of the FI-50 Rhodium IEC plug so its not the regular fI-50. NCF brings quite a bit more to SQ in my experience. Please read the many online reviews. Warranty will be based on whatever partsconnexion provides however I am quite certain your great grandchildren won't outlive the life of these plugs. Partsconnexion have been superb at fullfilling warranty requirements in the past by sending me replacement receptacles free of charge when one of the screws thread on a Leviton receptacles came loose.

  5. It's been 6 months since I received my new Kraftwerk 2 Dual to power my Uptone EtherREGEN and SonicTransport i5 Roon server. Although I did pay good money for the unit I thought I would provide prospective buyers with a quick review since Clay's product has truly exceeded my expectations. I am no stranger to Gieseler Linear Power Supplies as I have the older 12v Gold Tune enhanced LPS which compared very favorable with the SOTM sps-500 power supply and the Uptone lps 1.2. To cut to chase, the Kraftwerk 2 knocks the ball out of the park in my system and imo beats even the 12v Gold Tune enhanced in every way. I would describe the enhancement it brought to my music presentation as revelatory. With the Kraftwerk in the system, the music presentation seemed more life-like with instruments sounding more tangible and more hifi goodness such as quieter background, less mid bass bloat and overall greater realism especially to live recordings such as Arnesen's Magnificat and many other other Bossa Nova albums I had. Clay was a real pro. He took the time to understand what devices I would be powering the lps with and customized the DC plug, voltage and amps to my devices requirements. Of course at the end of the day, the lps had to deliver outstanding results given that I already had a uptone lps 1.2 and sps 500 in my system. So I believe my point of reference was against very highly regarded lps units in the market. Do I think Clay's LPS is up there with the world's best lps at that price point? Hell yes ! Opening the case of Gieseler Gold Tune Enhanced to change a fuse was the tipping point in me making the decision to part with my cash to purchase the new Kraftwerk 2. I am a sucker for good quality capacitors and components as I believe you can't cheat physics to get good sound. I was so impressed with the GT enhanced components that I thought I would give the new 'better' Gieseler lps a try. The SQ impact of a good LPS powering to power source equipment I believe will really surprise many people.
