When you examine the Company 'Contact Us' Address and Phone Number...
It does not exactly inspire confidence.

However, if you want to waste your $$$$$ on 'say' a 1 AWG Power Cord...
Then these are your guys.

Otherwise, I would just 'Pass' on that $1000 USD Digital Marvel Cable.

I believe the op was asking for opinions from folks who feel that cables make a difference, thus the " hey cable believers this post is directed at you ". Just sayin.

Why ? Could you elaborate ? It seems like a legit address and phone number unless I'm missing something.

A somewhat new player but they have been present at the last two Montreal hi-fi shows. Although I have never used their products personally, there are a few folks I've met who have and seem to like the companies offerings.

Just FYI... I firmly believe that Cables do make a difference!

Well, you would never know it from the tone of your post.

I have their entry level power cable which seems to be a very nice addition to my system. It is solidly made ,flexible and looks impressive. I'm not sure I could describe any particular sonic trait other than to say that my system has sounded great since I've added it. It replaced a decent qualify aftermarket cord that I bought here on CAM. Value wise I'd have to say it has been a no-brainer; I won it at the Montreal Audio Show this year. They seem like nice folks with nice products to me.

Funny but when I read Takira71A I post I assumed he was asking for people who had any knowledge or experience with DR cables. Personally I don't understand how anyone would misinterpret the question. Then again, Murphy's law, no mater how well you think you explained sometime, someone doesn't or didn't understand it. I have read about DR and I think I've seen them at the audio show or perhaps online but, I have no practical experience with them.

Funny, if I go back to the start of this thread it appears to be ie_ie asking for help in the initial post but I could be wrong.

Yes it was me that asked. With a little research I have found that they have had a presence on audiogon since Decembers 2012. https://www.audiogon.com/stores/drobidoux . What's interesting about that is that they seemed to have sold a number of Shunyata cables. Both Shunyata and DR Audio use "sand" of some sort of silicon tetraoxide/dioxide to dampen vibration and remove EMF.

But I believe Shunyata no longer uses "sand" in their latest models
