RE: Upgraded ST-70 power cord from VH Audio

I guess the difference is that my ST70 started out as a DIY project back 60 years ago and has easily accessible parts, power transformer notwithstanding. Your Yamaha may be more difficult. There's only one way to find out though and that is to open it up.

As for cable I was pretty impressed with the VH audio cable and the Furutech plug. But I'm assuming by your need for a European plug that's not as easy. This was my first PC so I'm no expert.

I took a look at some photos of the inside and it looks like it could be difficult. There is a small PCB over the hole that blocks access to the power cord internally. That PCB probably has something to do with power, and I couldn't see where the cord is soldered in.
