The Blizzard fits under the hood of the Devialet, but it is very stiff cable. ATV and my JRMC based Video renderer are connected via AQ NRG Y2/Y3 power chords.

My dealer also loaned me a phase meter (Oehlbach) to get the right phase.

I had always a small balance problem in my system , I though it was related to right (curtain, windows) and left (CD frame build from glass) speaker placement. But it was not. Everything has now the correct phase and the balance problem has gone away.

I will give it now a week to burn in, but first impression is all digital glitch is gone away e.g.  Emilie-Claire Barlow "The Very Thought of You" from 2xHD in DSD x64 sounds simply super natural, clear articulation, coloration of her voice. I also viewed the movie "Hunter Killer" through my Apple TV 4k connected via AQ Carbon HDMI to my LG OLED and then via AQ Carbon optical to my D220 Pro. It was an emotional tour the force.

I have attached a picture of my Power solution:
Slightly off the main topic but I also have an issue with balance and have never heard of the phase issue.  How did you measure and how did you fix it?  I have reversed my cables and still the same imbalance...big honking couch on one side has always been my theory.

Hello Manfred, beware of devices with switching power supplies and devices that have no "hard power switch"! With the devices one gets partly no clear, or wrong ads! It did not work on my Devialet and other devices. I then used the conventional method with voltmeter! Oehlbach also points out in the flyer!
