So I was rather surprised to find significant leap in performance with these Entreq power cords. Entreq is the latest brand to be represented by Swedish Statement, whose dealers include Ultimate Reference AV, Audio Art(Ipoh) and Audiomatic. Entreq products are all designed and made in Sweden by Per-olof Friberg, a self confessed farmer, who lives in harmony with nature. His products reflects his life's philosophy and hi-end audio art. Go Goggle for Entreq if you wanna learn more about this interesting man and his audio references.

There's an overall lushness to the presentation of music which suited most acoustical and un amplified music just fine. However, I must caution that in some systems which are already some what biased towards warm tonality, then adding the Challenger JV may manifest as too much of a good thing perhaps?
Lastly, priced at RM$11,000.00, the Entreq Challenger JV ain't exactly a bargain either, but in the context of a suitably super high end system, it has qualities that can make those too analytical/clinical a system shine.

However, with it's more balanced tonality, the Discover will do rock and pop music with great verve and energy. It does not have that overly lush characteristic of the Challenger JV, which makes it more compatible with more systems in general.
With a price tag of just RM$3,055.00 the Discover will certainly find it's way in to more systems meaningfully. I totally enjoyed my time with the Discover cable, even after stepping down from the more capable Challenger JV.
