Oyaide Tunami




OK. I left off at the Oyaide Tunami the other time. Right, i was looking for more bass "rumble" then.




Audio Basic in Adelphi has this power cord. It was retailing at SGD399 at that time. The shop owner and salesperson all-rolled-into-one, Steven, was a very nice person-very obliging and relaxed. I brought along my Violet Z1 to do a comparison via his setup. I was looking for more bass quantity- that was my basis in the comparison test.




Steven has many CDs, both audiophile and non-audiophile alike. He is a music-lover himself since his days in the manufacturing line. Alas, i was Noob then (still is lol) so i picked the only disc that we both have in common- Eva Cassidy Live at Blues Alley. Steven also recommended the Acrolink P4030. So we have the Acrolink and the Oyaide against the Z1...drumroll....




All the cords were being auditioned by swapping them on the CDP since the impact will be the most apparent on the source- the amplifier and the speakers all work on signals from this very source. ( This is an obvious but often overlooked point-the source is very important!-but i disgress.)




First we tried the Z1. Steven commented that it is not a cheap cable, probably in the S$400-S$500 range. He was quite right except that it was near to the upper end of the price range including shipping costs (grumble). Next up was the Oyaide. I was immediately impressed. Vocals were more airy and the bass quantity was more than the Z1. As a bonus, it is actually less costly than the Z1- would not be a pain on the wallet if i were to change to this cord.


How about the Acrolink? Alright, this was up next. The mids to high frequency are very detailed and airy. The bass is tight and accurate. The sound staging and depth is staggering. The retail is around S$430, still less than the Z1. By then, i was thinking that the Z1 is really overpriced lol. Considering especially that the sleeving at one of the plug of my Z1 came lose exposing the inner configuration. Naturally, i was curious about its configuration. As far as i can tell and share without being unethical, the Z1 is simply 3 colored PVC cords in a purple coloured "plastic" mould. Of course, the essence in the cord is in the unravelling of the manufacture code of the 3 cords. But this is impossible due to the mould encasing these cables.




Back to the story. After comparing the three power cords, i decided to have the Oyaide Tunami since it has the most bass quantity-something that i felt my system was lacking. I paid up and brought it home.




The Tunami is a stiff 1.8m cable. It is factory terminated with bright red special editioned 046 Oyaide plugs. I immediately took a liking to the plugs after inserting them in my setup. The locking of the plugs is very secure ensuring optimal connection. The Marinco on the Z1 in comparison always seem to be only half-inserted into the IEC of my CDP.




Of course, i let the new Tunami run-in on my amplifier. I listen via this cord as it was running-in. My impression was that there is now more bass quantity but i could use more lol :D




Thus, another Tunami two weeks later :P
