Interconnects, speaker wire, power cords. Ask the Cable Guys.

RE: power cord trick

I'm not quite sure what the trick is supposed to be, bcowen.

BTW, I notice you enjoy the gold Furutech FI-11(G) set of AC connectors. I find they mate very well with the Oyaide Black Mamba V2 bulk power cable. Priced at $45.76 per meter, a 3 meter bulk length cable is enough to build two 5 foot power cords with. It's an outstanding bulk power cable for DIY projects, especially at a cost of only $68.64 per 5 foot power cord.

Very good synergy when plugged into a gold Oyaide SWO-GX AC outlet, which is a bit finicky to mate with various AC plugs, IME. The Oyaide SWO-GX AC outlet features gold plated phosphor bronze contacts, while the gold plated Furutech FI-11M(G) AC plug features pure copper blades. IMO, the synergy of the two provides the best of both worlds, with the Furutech FI-11(G) AC connectors providing a very dense tonality, while the Oyaide SWO-GX AC outlet provides good dynamics at the frequency extremes, with notable treble energy and a big bottom-end without sounding ill-defined. Warm sounding but without sounding too lush, to my ear. Definitely on the warm side of things, but very coherent from top-to-bottom. YMMV

The Oyaide Black Mamba V2 is reference quality.
