By the way, the new Statement DC cable is excellent. Didn’t know it could make a significant difference (over the Elementa DC cable). The first thing it does is to shape the musical notes beautifully by defining the beginning and end of notes. Very evident with guitar music. Second, because as you say the noise floor is lower, there is greater clarity with improved separation of instruments. And the result of that is also a broader, less congested sound stage. Good value for the price!
