Audioquest Niagara 5000 to use with dual monos
#1
Hello All,

Am considering the purchase of the Niagara 5000 power conditioner to use with my D440s and ROON ROCK.  Anyone have any experience with this unit...has been garnering some positive reviews.

Cheers,
Warren

I don't own one, but considered it. I use Denali 6000T.
You can find some good impressions from other owners here..

Many thanks for your comments.  Hoping to have one in-house in the next few days for evaluation.

When you're testing would you tell me if they've yet fixed the hum, or if the Audioquest power conditioners still add noise by humming?

Bought the 5000 and just installed the new unit today.  The two dedicated circuits for the power amplifiers really take control of the D440s adding power, drive and articulation.  An easy and positive upgrade to my ears.  
Garth Powell, the designer, is an EE with a long history of real work in the electronic industry...no fairy dust here.  He is available by email and quickly answered a few questions I had.  
To your query...no hum on this unit nor on the loaner demo I had in house.  I have read that it was some samples, accordingly a few,  of the larger 7000 that exhibited a hum.  Mine is silent and surprising not hot or warm to the touch.

Excellent. It seemed very strange that Audioquest would make a noise suppressor that hums, but they did. I'm glad they've fixed that. Thanks for letting me know. Enjoy!
