...who has no experience with aftermarket power cords. Yeah, yeah, I can see you are an electrical contractor. But PCs can and do make a substantial difference. Is it a difference you want to shell out the $$ for? Maybe not, but don't make a blanket generalization like you have.
OTOH, the prices of some of these beasts have gotten out of hand. The same can be said for most of the cable industry. I don't agree with cables costing as much as speakers. I am not saying they don't make a marked improvement, but there is no reason that improvement can't be had for much less money either. I tend to take the middle ground and buy aftermarket cables that, while not cheap, offer excellent performance for the cost involved. But you have to listen first.
LOL beginner, yeah ok. Yup I am an electrical contractor and have been for over 25 years. Not only do I listen but I understand why. I said what I said and it's very true. The cable industry is the biggest scam going. Run a fancy ad with some colorful words in front of an enthusiastic audiophool, back it up with some more of his types in a forum and POOF! You have more sales than you can handle. Can you say Placebo?! Power cords...Hmmmm some do offer excellent performance for the cost involved. Proper insulation, proper gauge for the load being served, yeah good price. Sit back and listen I agree. HEY, to each their own though. Buy what you want. Me? I'll improve my system by buying some more vinyl and maybe even a few seedees. Enjoy!
Absolutely! And I would recommend Chris's flavor 2.
yes it does.
