power cord trick

I can't be the first to think of this, but I have not read of anyone else doing it. So might as well let the cat out of the bag so to speak.

There is a certain amount of snake oil in cooperate America. As it relates to high end audio, I would say the greatest amount is in power cables.

A number of years ago I purchased a line conditioner for my setup. It was nothing high tech, just something to filter out some of the noise coming through my AC. The unit came with a standard three prong detachable power cord. I decided to upgrade this cord and had a friend make me a DYI cord. Cost was around $65.

To my surprise the sound was a lot cleaner! To my bigger surprise I replaced all my high buck power cables ( I had been using ) on my audio gear with the standard power cables they came with. I couldn't hear much audible difference.
