6) Comments on power cables
IME I have found that the same cable is not necessarily the right one for every job
due to variances in configuration and properties re AWG, shielding, solid core vs stranded etc.
E.G.....My DIY Belden 83803 works wonderfully well running my active speakers but not my Source (s)
7) Success stores for others to learn from.
Don't be afraid to build your own cables if you are not put off by the whole official licensed thing.
Buying un terminated cable and connectors in bulk is more cost effective.
You could also just try adding higher quality connectors to your existing cables if you want to experiment.
E.G......My Gigawatt LC1 MK3's came with a decent IEC but very cheap AUS male end.
I changed them out with better quality and quite affordable Vanguards from which had larger, thicker tangs and were generally more solid and better quality.
Any sonic improvements could obviously be vigorously debated but I was happier and glad I did it.
Furutech offer pretty much the only high end AUS style connector out there and I am very happy with them as well.........apart from the price!!!!...😄
TIP........I have also read that going with longer AC cables is better than short ones.
Lastly I do not see any harm in playing around with AC cables if you feel you have already addressed everything else that had a larger affect on SQ.
