  6. Haha that's gold never came across this forum before ! I randomly read a few threads and already spat my coffee out twice [emoji1] [emoji1] [emoji1] [emoji1] ' Oh plz look at those graphs it measures no better than a boy gamers doof doof 2.1 off alliexpress, your just dirty you've been played' rofl Sent from my SM-G955F using Tapatalk
  7. Felix In my humble opinion. It's Unfortunately but the days of independent, technical and uncoloured reviews being common place are now gone. Now I say common place because there are a few from time to time but few and far between Even the ones that do often be selective in the measure to cast the best light on product in question. The audio as with most any consumer electronics is driven by advertisement and kick backs. The websites, forums, mags all live on click throughs and advert space are they really going to cut off the hand that feeds them? Even the smaller independent guys are often a wash with demo gear 'which never has to return' in order for a review. Then gets sold on as a secondary income It's always been an issue but one now which increasingly makes a significant amount of reviews shallow words. For every bad review you'll find 100x positive ones with some pitiful attempt to scribe a con about a said unit which trys to portray some neutrality without peeing of the manufacturer or turning of the consumer from buying. Of course there's always room for people's perception, thoughts and tastes but it should also be backed with technical information (not selective benchmarking) which is often the case. Don't get me wrong there are some good reviews/reviewers out there but as with any form of media the lines get blurred. Take the editorial being cleverly disguised 'headline news' promoted stories with small advert disclaimers it just gets worse year on year.. Now more then ever consumers need to be savvy. The day that physical media and the revenue that brought began to decline so did the content which was consumed from it... Peace... Sent from my SM-G955F using Tapatalk
  8. Aspen SAKSA85 amplifier

    Ian, Congrats on your purchase.. They are great little amps and good bang for buck [emoji106] Sent from my SM-G955F using Tapatalk
  9. haha that is true it is thick cable!!! [emoji3]ive got some 8 core for power between boxes and ended up using milspec connectors!! Your right on the core diameters. I was looking for the model but didn't see core diameter it would be more than fine but yes with only 3 core I would go the 2.5m I ended up getting some bulk from Aussie distributor if I recall ended up getting 20m I think as mininium worked out ok though price wise Sent from my SM-G955F using Tapatalk
  10. It's 3 wires and a screw driver [emoji3] happy to make one up for you just pm me Sent from my SM-G955F using Tapatalk
  11. Does all a good power cable needs to.. good quality metal, good conductivity without voltage drop, rated for high voltage/current applications. Good quality shelth, has metal braid shielding around the hot, neutral and ground cables. All and all very good quality cable and very good price.. ASR amplifiers amougnst others use it. Cant get better value... it's all you need. Buy two quality iec connectors and done Sent from my SM-G955F using Tapatalk
  12. Everyday, I can highly recommended this cable http://www.conrad.com/ce/en/product/600146/Control-wiring-OeLFLEX-CLASSIC-100-CY-3-G-150-mm-Transparent-LappKabel-0035458-Sold-per-metre Couple of meters of this and decent iec connectors and your away [emoji1] I've actually got some lapp spare so if you want to get some iec and send them my way happy to terminate and heatshrink them for you. Although it's dead easy. [emoji106] Sent from my SM-G955F using Tapatalk
  13. Hi mate, I won't speak for others comments but I've stated in previously post "Mains power can cause issues" However, it's a question of whether A) In well designed components (ill use well designed rather than expensive) there is a audible benefit B) For issues that arent resolved by a components design do you need to invest a significant amount to resolve. Let's take an amplifier as an example. A engineer is very mindful of all sorts of potential paracistic interfernce. Capacitance, inductance, thermal noise, shielding, mains noise, grounding. When they look at the power they design from the mains through to the rails. When they look at audio path they look at it from input impedance through to output coupling caps. They choose resistors with low noise (ppm) in audio path, film caps in the right position, rectifiers suitable with low switching noise. The parts manufactures be that IC or discreet mosfet/jfet all provide detailed information on noise rejection, minimum/max voltage/amps, slew rate etc etc and considerations that designers should cater for in designs. The designers know real world conditions and test/measure against that. Using tolerances that reflect real world conditions. If they didn't they would only rely on spice or other simulators and not even casual diy guys would take a sim as gospel and they would breadboard and prototype, refine, measure and retest. The point is all well designed products have gone through significant testing to address the most common issues people face and for the most part a good design will negate the need for external devices in the vast majority of cases. For the outlying fringe cases there is probably logical and simple fixes for things outside the design controls of an amp or source. Noise, power delivery, thd, noise floor, SNR are all core performance indicators for designers. So if you draw the logical conclusion that if you are considering to drop 3,4,5,10k on 3rd party power device you would be working of a pretty good base for equipment that SHOULD significant mitigate or remove the audible affect of mains. This isn't a bespoke consideration for designers its core of what they do. Noise and power are major considerations. The problems are not in question. The question is do you need additional equipment to solve outside that inherit in design or by following logical practices outside the box.. Peace.. Sent from my SM-G955F using Tapatalk
  14. Maybe most of the good ones dont because it's already inherit in their designs. They already test their transformers under varying mains conditions and dummy loads. The have already build pcbs with large ground planes, star grounding, shunting, snubbers, filters, CMRR/PSRR and know that by the time the its rectified to D.C. and hits power rails it doesn't cause any issues. It's D.C. after all. [emoji3][emoji106] Sent from my SM-G955F using Tapatalk
