    “They work”

    “The rings are easy to fit, and fit well. The key to success is to get the rings in the correct position on the valves. Don’t place them to restrict heat flow. Once you find the ‘sweet spots’, the improvement in sound quality far exceeds their cost. And with their low cost, you’d be daft not to try them. I’m not taking them off.”

    “This cable is of high quality construction, is very nice to fit and should be ideal for high current amplifiers such as my Krell. I didn’t think it sounded as good as a reference Siltech power lead but that was a lot more expensive and perhaps the Belden will improve with use.”

    “My favourite CD”

    “first of all this my all time favourite cd and I think it is fantastic, I was very happy when I found it in sacd format on MCRU. As you can imagine I have listened to this CD a lot as a ordinary cd but the thing is I couldn’t really hear any difference between the cd & sacd. I have a pretty good sound and I am playing it on balanced xlr cables with high end speakers cables and yes my cd player is a sacd(yamaha cd-s2000). Now to MCRU, I am very happy with their service, they have a very good website and postage was fast and reliable. they will be my first choice for my next hifi purchase! Jacob”

    Dont critically listen for a few days as when they change they are fantastic upgrades to certain kit – obviously more benefit some kit than others

    “SLIC Eclipse C interconnect cable”

    “Hello David, having great fun going through the vinyl collection again, having replaced an Ecosse nu diva between phono and amp with the SLIC Eclipse C . Wow what a change, the music is so much more entertaining, I thought the old cable was fine, but after reading all the comments and reviews just had to give it a try on good faith, and am well rewarded. I’m amazed how much was being held back, there is now much fuller crisper sound the whole range has opened up, there is a bigger audio picture, I am much more immersed in the soundscape, many late nights listening coming up! Many thanks. Steve App .PRESTON Jan 2015”

    “It’s as good as they say !”

    “I have an original Uniti and a UnitiServe connected via a Gigaswitch using Audioquest Cinnamon CAT 7 cable, driving a pair of PMC Twenty.21 speakers – so “bottom range” Hi-Fi (according to some). The linear supply has taken the whole system to a new level. More fine detail, better bass, with transients that can make me jump ! An amazing improvement straight from the box. I’ve just got all the bits to make a linear supply for the gigaswitch, a bit easier than for the UnitiServe, I can’t believe it will make much difference but I’m certainly willing to try it out. Not cheap, but good value, in my system at least.”

    “I was looking for alternative way of improving the sound for minimal outlay to satisfy the upgrade itch. Step forward the Iso Tek vision as a potential way of improving every component within the system. Did it work in a word ‘wow’ more detail more separation Between notes, quieter background and better picture quality. I can’t think of a more cost effective upgrade to every component within your system. Especially at this special offer price. “

    “A Real Treat”

    “Portable gear can be underpowered and a real compromise with the battle between usability and performance levels, so it can be a worrisome thing to buy an amp at this price level that is running from a battery as a portable unit.

    Have no worries. This DAC is a an absolute powerhouse and drives even difficult headphones well.

    The choice of inputs and amount of power delivered to headphones is really well thought out. For instance, it can drive an HE6 which is no mean task and at the other end of the sensitivity scale, a Fostex TH900. You can set three levels of power and also put more resistance in the way via a little switch underneath for iems, which is what I used for the Fostex. For the HE6 or LCD2, you just let it roar away on full gain. Very nice feature.

    You can input via the mini jack and use the device purely as an ordinary amp or go in via the usb input which is absolutely top notch with the level of files that you can play into it. Hi resolution files going in via usb are stunning to say the least.

    It also has phono outputs so you can use it as a preamp. Many uses for this device.

    The dac is built like a tank and comes with a nifty little bag with a gap in the back to push wires through if you wish to use it in the bag, plus different connection options. It comes with various adapters too.

    I think that it is really worth the price since the level of detail and the timbre are a delight. The amp just disappears through headphones. A great listen indeed.

    Lastly, I have to mention the level of service from David. He is quick to get the order out to you and in my case, a minor problem was sorted so quickly and easily that I would recommend buying from MCRU without reservation. No question.

    I have never bought from this company before but I was bowled over from the level of response that I got from David in particular. He really goes the extra mile to please.

    This is an excellent DAC and if I am looking for any more specialised items, I won’t hesitate to return.”

    “Excellent product. Has cleaned the pins on two troublesome preamp valves and the thinest brush has removed the crud from the sockets. Add the special contact enhancer solution and the reult is a sparkling sound. Very pleased. Will use on other socket based valves in time but too busy listening right now!”

    “I’d previously got some excellent results, replacing standard mains leads with Isotek cables. So, getting an Isotek mains conditioner seemed an obvious next step. The Vision has lived up to my expectations, and has brought excellent additional clarity to my hi-fi. An excellent purchase. One of my best upgrades. Certainly the best per buck.”

    James Douglas

    “Good Value”

    “This is an excellent pack for the money. The only suggestions I would make are to advise buyers that the thickness of the cable means the fitting into both IEC and mains plug are very tight and it will take some effort to trim back the wires, braid and crimps to the right length to get the assembly to work. Also, remember to change the fuse – 13amp is not the right fuse for most Hi-Fi components. MCRU would be better including 5amp fuses instead. Please note MCRU.”

    “A good upgrade to compliment a mid – to high end audio system.”

    “I replaced the standard 13A Fuse in an AudioQuest NRG2 mains power cable that’s feeding my audio system with an SR Red 13 A Fuse and it brings noticeable improvements. Think of it like it’s improving an already good power cable or interconnect , so you’re going to get better soundstage , improved mids , extra detail and treble extension. Do try the fuse in both directions when fitting as there’s definitely one way that sounds correct. I think you could over-upgrade an already good sounding system by fitting too many of these high end fuses , but a few in the right places will work well. Headphone listener’s , like myself , will enjoy experimenting with these SR Red mains fuses to bring the best out of your system.”

    “This really made a difference for me(copper version)”

    “Aside from the practical benefits this plug brings, in allowing the fitting of very thick cables, I was very pleasantly surprised by the sonic benefits – bass was certainly firmer, tighter and clearer, in fact the whole spectrum sounded like it had been given a spring clean and polish. Lyrics that had previously been a little difficult to make out were now lucid, and grating noise effects became tolerable, but without any lessening of dynamics, in fact an improvement in that area. In case you think this is just a case of overactive imagination, I had two exact runs of cable with the same IEC, but different plug, so I could make a valid comparison. The other plug was a silver plated MK, both plugs using the same silver plated Busman fuse. Results could vary depending on your mains quality and existing cabling, but for me, it certainly did the trick. I got an even better result after switching the Cratos power cable for the new Furutech nano cable.”

    “Furutech have a winner here”

    “Furutech look like they have hit the jackpot here – a relatively affordable cable, with superb sonic performance. It’s very thick, so you need a plug like Furutech or MS Audio to accommodate, but it’s well worth it. I would describe its sound as very, very clean and fresh, but not in harsh way at all. In my setup, it just made everything easier to listen to, even outside of the ‘good’ night time periods. Supposedly has a long burn-in time, but I am more than happy with the ‘raw’ sound. I have tried a number of power cables, up until now only the Black Rhodium Cratos did anything worth having, but this beats it all ends up, either on source or amp.”

    “I ordered the luxman d-05 but it was not in stock. So Dave at M.C.r.us. very kindly gave me an upgrade to a D-06. for not a lot more money. The D-06 is a brilliant player especially with sacd. With standard cd’s it’s very good, although it’s still early days. With more burn in time it can only improve.

    Would highly recommend. Also would highly recommend the service of M.C.r.us”

    “excellent cable-big improvement in sound quality”

    “I upgraded all the mains cables in my system, using this cable and Furutech Gold mains plugs and Furutech IEC connectors. The cable is quite stiff which made DIY fitting of the connectors a little slow, but it’s worth taking care and the extra time to do a neat job.

    I noticed a big improvement in the sound immediately, top end less harsh and more detailed, and much more width and depth to the soundstage. Bass is ‘bloom’ substantially reduced. This was all without any burn in time, so more improvements to come over the next few weeks, I expect. Not a cheap upgrade, but compared to many of the more exotic high-end cables on the market, very good value for the improvements made.”

It is as if the stage curtains have been properly opened to reveal the previously masked stage. Detail retrieval is amazing – a live Laura Marling CD was simply transformed!

    “Excellent Cable”

    “I bought the 3.5mm-3.5mm 1.5m version to replace the stock cable with my Philips Fidelio X2 headphones and the sound has improved in every way, surpassing my expectations. Previously I had bought a cheaper 1.5m Fisual cable which was audibly still overall better than the original Philips but no where to the extent of this Furutech. The Furutech is well made, looks great and more importantly delivers from a sonic angle. Even though it works out as a quarter of the headphone’s full price it is still a worthwhile upgrade. I am now looking to purchase the matching Rhodium 3.5-6.3 convertor from Japan as it is not currently available in the UK.”

    “When it comes to hi-fi I am notoriously hard to please after going to countless speaker auditions and coming away unimpressed. I realized I was taking a big risk in ordering the 127’s without any chance of an audition first. However, when they arrived in the post I could tell straight away these were no ordinary speakers. Once set-up and allowing a few days to acclimatise to the sound I can honest say they are the final piece in the jigsaw. The sound they produce brings a smile to a face and are an unequivocal success. I should have know as I have bought several items from MCRU and they have always been first class and a bargain compared with other companies. The owner David has always been extremely helpful and you can tell that hi-fi is his passion rather than just a business. Couldn’t be happier with the purchase.”

    “This is a lovely plug, well made and easy to work with once you realise you need to extract the 3 contacts from the plug in order to wrap the wire round them. With thick wire it’s quite a challenge to get everything lined up in order to put it back together again, but with thinner wire it would probably have been much easier. Overall it’s pretty good but give yourself an hour to wire it with a “challenging” cable such as the Belden.”

    “A natural winner.”

    “From the start it was clear that this interconnect was special. I used it to replace either a VdH cable that I thought was the best ‘natural’ sounding interconnect when I bought it, or to replace an Atlas interconnect which always added a little excitement. Both interconnects have been well reviewed and remain the favourites of some professional reviewers. In either case the MCRU No.1 was better – both at relaying a natural sound and delivering excitment with authority. Here are some notes from the first 30 hours use.

    1 hour – Bella Hardy – female vocals clearer and more ‘real’. Bass well extended.

    5 hours – Unthanks -Mount the Air- complex sections easier to follow and instruments sound more natural

    10 hours – Walter Trout ‘The blues came calling’ – The band are playing together. Bass has real impact and control. Easy to follow the bass and guitar lines even when the drummer gets rather enthusiastic!

    15 hours – Cannonball Adderley – trumpet has a nice brassy edge – double bass has texture, notes clear and feels ‘real’ – piano sounds real.

    18 hours Schubert ‘Death and the Maiden’. String quartets can be very revealing. Here the four instruments occupy clear areas of the stage and sound natural. Hall ambience and reverberation is able to be heard throughout the performance. The best I have heard this CD sound – and It has been played every week or two, and therefore on every iteration of my system, for the last 10 years!

    20 hours – June Tabor ‘Aleyn’ – Vocal sounds real – reverberation from recording venue clear and appropriate – accompanying instruments clearly recorded and the result is a moving and coherent performance.

    25 hours – Eleanor McEvoy ‘Alone’. Studio ambience bathes the sound of her voice. The instruments sound real and very much as she sounded when I last saw her performing live.

    30 hours -Lisa Carthy ‘Dreams of breathing underwater’. Wow. Last time I listened to this the instrumentation didn’t make sense. Now it does! Not your traditional ‘folk’ backing but an extremely effective mix of electronica and ‘real’ instruments around a clear and realistic vocal. Bass sounds have real textures and can be distinguished easily from each other.

    So, in summary, this interconnect delivers! It offers natural sound across the whole frquency range, provides a ‘black’ space between notes (i.e.it has low background noise and adds very litlle to the signal) and exhibits a clear and coherent sense of timing in the music it transfers (assuming of course that the musicians are playing in time!). “

    “If you’ve got this far you are already aware of the benefits of ‘audiophile’ fuses. I’ve gone from AMR through to SR20 and then Reds and each time I’ve been amazed at the improvement. When Dave recently put out his post Bristol offer I decided to take advatage and give a couple of Blacks a go. One went into an Audiolab M-Dac with extra power supply and the other into a Quad 306 rebuilt , by myself, with boutique components. The power cable is Furutech and the UK plugs and IEC are also Furutech / IEGO. No mains distribution units are used and the HIFi has its own mains spur.

    So what difference did replacing the 13A Reds with the Blacks have and where they worth the outlay. In a word YES. Bearing in mind that I have only used them for some 50 hours and the burn in time is about 300, yes 300 hours, the improvement is far greater than I was expecting. Every evening brings improvements as they get burned in. Every criteria of the sound has improved but so far the best for me is the bass. More articulate, deeper and bearing in mind I user MG12s some bass boom I was experiencing has gone. Detail and the separation of instruments gets better every night.

    Try one out and I can guarantee you will be looking to get more. “

    “This new Black fuse offers worthwhile improvements over the Red. Expensive, but worth the extra over the Red.

    “Serious looking cable that looks the part for iring Hifi radial circuits. I ordered 1m to start with just to ‘see’ what it looks like — i will be following this with an order for a longer length for the dedicated radial for streaming LAN components before i even consider same for the main system which is a much bigger deal and will costs a bit. A similarly screened mains lead that i bought from MCRU seems to have sloted in very nicely — and i have managed to convince myself that there are musical benefits — so the omens are good. Just need to find time for the next project.”

    “Give your system a well needed work out”

    “My Naim system sounded fine to my ears, quite clear & crisp, then i played track 3 through it for 10 minutes, now i know how this system most probably sounded originally, be prepared, the improvement is not subtle, you will hear sounds that were probably not clear before, i’m always a little sceptical about such devices but the proof is in the listening.

    Injected life into an old dog, 20 years old now my Naim system, it now sounds as though i have just unboxed it from new, seriously.”

    “Have tried a few different mains cables through the years including various Siltechs up to Ruby Hill II and the top of the range Vertex AQ and have to say the FP-TCS21 with decent connectors is at least in the same league which represents amazing value for money imho! Definitely worth a try.”

    “Silver Polish”

    “This is an impressive cable, not cheap but very good at relaying all the subtle characteristics of a recording without smearing the sound. It knocked my Chord pseudo balanced digital interconnect for six (now assigned to the “has been” cable storage box)! The connectors are excellent and grip really well but not in that excessive way whereby one is afraid to pull too hard to release. It is the detail of the recording, its musicality without the usual digital smearing, that shines through – highly recommended.

    Used between a Trichord modified Teac VRDS10 (as transport only) and the Audiolab M-Dac. “

    “These new top of the range IEC connectors offer a surprisingly large improvement on the previous RI 50 connectors. If you want the best, you have found them. I only wish I could afford to replace all my existing IEC connectors. Buy with confidence!”

    “This is a quality mains plug which is ideal for quality cable. It can accept heavy cable with ease, it is easy to wire, even with stiff cable, and has a solid cable clamp. This will be my plug of choice in future.

    “I ordered 4 meters to make 2 x 2 meters for my class d mono amplifiers driving woofers only.. so I’m commenting only for bass region.. This cable is truely fantastic. I did tons of diy power cables using all Acrolink, Neotech, Acoustic Revive 7N occ copper staffs.. I am not saying Belden is the best but I can say that it took my music into a new level. it perfectly matched to my 400w monos and gave them a deep breath . dynamic, fast and powerfull cable.. “

    “Just bought a second silver plated twin socket to follow up the first one purchased over a month ago and which has now had a good run in. Initial findings are that not only are the connections better but plugs engage much tighter, a quality socket! They were installed on a standard ring main for my hifi albeit kitchen appliances are on a separate circuit, soundwise, there was a definite improvement to the sound stage making it a bit wider, background noise again was reduced especially during daytime hours. 4/6 Weeks onwards it continues to improve hence second purchase. I feel at this price it was a good investment, who knows the future may encourage a move to Rhodium at twice the price! and move the silver to see how they benefit AV gear. Further comparisons will now be difficult as I have just upgraded my powercords.

    For any doubters out there my equipment is middle level new Naim/Project and Cyrus equipment. Service from MCRU was excellent, delivered on time, well packaged and kept informed all the way.”

I have not heard my LP sound as good before. At last my turntable feels like a first class part of a my system. I’m using the cartridge in a Linn LP12 with Akito arm, Trichord Dino pre-amp.”

    “Interesting mains cable this. Most cables aim to expand the dynamic range of you PSU connected to it. In my experienced though, this tends to make the music more distant. However, this is the 1st I’ve come across that does the opposite. Which you prefer will depend on your hi-fi overall characteristic and what you perceive as best. So like all cables, mains, signal and speaker, I see these as like tool kit to fine tune to your own preference. “

    “Small Fuse – Big Improvement – SUPERB !”

    “Of course the mains supply affects hi-fi equipment – but it’s taken me almost 4 decades to realise just HOW much it affects systems. After upgrading all my mains cables and the mains socket and installing a pair of fancy Isol-8 mains conditioners, I sat back, really pleased with the improvement I’d made. But with a 10% MCRU discount waiting to be used, I decided to try a Synergistic Research Black 13A fuse in the mains plug of each mains conditioner. WOW! How can a little fuse make such a difference? I was already using “Hi-Fi Tuning” fuses in all my plugs, but these SR Blacks blew them out the water. The improvement was dramatic. So much so that I decided to go the whole hog. I put all future upgrades on hold, and used that money to replace every 13A and internal equipment fuse with an SR Black. STUNNING ! The level of detail, HF extension and bass definition has increased well beyond what an upgrade of similar cost might give. These fuses are excellent – 5 STARS.”

    “This is a truly exceptional mains lead. A level physics cannot explain why any mains lead could make a difference to the sound, but your ears certainly can. For over 10 years I have used many different mains leads, however these Tellurium Q silvers are the best. At the price they are clearly intended for a mid to high end system and when used with my Meridian 808V5 CD player and Meridian 7200SE speakers they even improve what are already fantastic sounding products. If you want the best possible sound from your system I recommend you give these a try, you will not be disappointed. “

    “This cable was recommended by mcru when looking to upgrade the cable on my mains block. All I can say is wow, it had deepened the bass and improved the attack of instruments like drums and guitars. What I didn’t expect was the extra resolution when I listened to a very familiar Kate Bush track, my wife and I both went, ” what was that”. Buy without hesitation. “

Definitely recommend this , even if you’ve already achieved a whisper quiet background . . this takes things up a notch again , hearing fantastic music through my headphones with this filter doing it’s thing at the mains source.”

    “Before i tested this cable i bought more expensive cables like Eupen and Groneberg. After Buying a new Amplifier with much higher speed and resolution i was aware, that the amp does not sound as it sould sound. I began to switch mains cables. This red Belden cable sounds stunning! Very open, natural and musical with a good grip at the bottom end. I recommend to combine it with very good plugs like Oyaijde. “
