The Violet ZIMKII and the Carbon edition of the Violet ZIMKII are at the point where they do it all and do it rather well. As a result The Statement One and Silver Reference are being discontinued.
Both of the Violet's have reached the point where they are as good and in some cases better than both of those cords and as a result we can't justify selling them anymore. We are well aware that the "garden hose" crowd and those who think you need to spend at least $2K on a power cord might be scratching their respective heads with this move, but the time has come to move on.
We have always been about making the best possible power cord and trying to keep the costs at a "sane" level and this is another step in that direction.
