Kaplan Cable GS MkII Power Cords

November 28, 2010

Michael Wechsberg has posted a review of the Kaplan Cable GS MkII power cord ($1695). Of note are the following comments:

Kaplan employs a special proprietary process to his cables, which he calls "whizbang", that can be applied at various doses. I haven't the faintest idea what that might be but suggest he find a better marketing term than "whizbang". Anyway, I actually received a pair of an earlier version of Kaplan cables (one copper and one rhodium) about a year ago to check out. At the time I decided not to review them as they didn't seem to do much for my system one way or the other. I mildly preferred the copper version as being a bit more musical. The GS Mk II cable is a much better cable than its predecessor.

As to the issue of a different marketing term for the "whizbang" treatment, might I suggest "Quantum Whizbang"?
