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

RE: optimal power cord length?

Hey Adaug,
Length of the power cords will change what range of
high frequency noise is generated.
Long power cords will produce lower frequency noise
in the 8 to 12 MHz range.
Shorter cables will help generate higher noise
12 MHz and up.

The power cable for the CD player is more critical.

To reduce this noise - an audio-grade power cord will help.
