RE: power cord trick

I guess I wasn't very through was I? Initially I used the stock power cord that came with the conditioner, and noticed some difference. So I think a conditioner will help to an extent. I don't think paying $1000, $5000, or more for a conditioner is worth it. Just my thinking. When I attached the DIY power cord to the conditioner, I found the sound was more improved.

Let's face it. The quality at the front end has the greatest affect on signal. " Garbage in, garbage out " So having a better power cord coming into the conditioner for whatever reason ( better copper, better shielding etc ) made the greatest difference. And finally " No " I didn't hear much, if any difference when I replaced my high buck power cables on the equipment with stock power cords.

I think the conditioner, and the DYI cord together made the difference. That is not to say you may experience different results by trying the same thing. I don't know your cables, or equipment. But I just can't figure out why they are selling these bib buck power cables, and folks are using a stock power cable on the conditioner. Try it for yourself. If nothing else, simply upgrade your conditioner power cable and leave the other cables alone.
