Some quotes follow:

Stereo Times Magazine

“… I really liked the Ziggy’s Cheetah MK ll Power Supply Cable on my tube integrated. Its delivery of power provided both nuanced and dynamic contrasts in resonance, textures and instrument tone beautifully and there were details presented that were not as evident when using [competitive cables] …”

“”… Hand built in Poland, this sturdily constructed, twisted cable … is heavy, understated, and surprisingly flexible … brought out details of acoustic bass … a lot of energy to the strings and woodwinds. A lot of punch and high frequency detail …”

“… Jacob Collier’s two full length 2019 releases, “Djesse Vol. 1” (Decca (UMO) 2018) and “Djesse Vol. 2” (Decca (UMO) 2019), have been on repeat of late and are always a great place to start. Home Is, from “Djesse Vol. 1” was first up. The rig reached down deep for the lowest dense cinematic bass, offering a good, solid sound-stage and vocal imaging. On “Overture,” this cable handled the thematic wallops and dense program material, rending an intimate and pleasing view into the busy mind of this 22 year old musical phenom…”

Love of My Heart

“… Detailed, great sound-stage, not compressed, punch, nice body to instruments, upright bass has great body, wood and presence. Outstanding. My neighbor just texted and asked me what song I was just playing… Transients tight, fast…”

“The Love In My Heart” was complex, fun and foot-tappingly danceable. This Ziggy “Cheetah” MK II AC Power cable surprised me. No, shocked me. The shininess I heard was gone, replaced with seemingly endless punch, density and dynamic complexity….”

Ziggy Cheetah - B

“… ‘Amulet’ from Paul Simon’s ‘So Beautiful Or So What’ was captivating, his guitar’s body rendered with a great, bold voice and presence. No shy playing here – a surety of movement beautifully rendered….”

Paul Simon

“… ‘The Moon Is A Harsh Mistress’ [Haden, Metheny] presented a guitar as delicate as the bass was commanding, with Haden offering deep yet gentle support to Metheny’s guitar melody. Nuanced background accompaniment was subtle as it quietly wrapped itself around these two jazz stars …”

beyond the missouri sky

” …’Ocean Wide, Canyon Deep’, bass line was rendered with a real physical sense of that instrument’s body, The strings were lush; delicate cues, nuances light and airy, like butterflies fluttering about the room. Such a pleasing depth to this detailed mix.”

“… Ziggy’s [power supply] cable did a near MRI on the body of that acoustic bass … reached down deep for the lowest dense cinematic bass, offering a good, solid sound-stage and vocal imaging …”

Brain MRI-min

” … On A Black Horse/Linearity” from Avishai Cohen’s “Almah”, … there was a solidity, drive, joined by focused imaging, powerful bass and great body to the keyboard; Delicate cymbal work offered counterpoint to the dynamic happenings captured here…”

Avishai Cohen

“… The Cheetah MK ll is a highly competent performer worthy of your time.
Good job, Ziggy, (but then you already know that)…”
