Re: How is it that power cords can make a sonic difference???

You now argue that US mains is far worse than UK's. I wonder why this should be? We use similar power stations, use a similar high voltage grid and transform down to domestic voltage for use in homes in a similar way. The UK has a similar cross section of consumers - industrial, domestic, commercial, etc. What's the logic in your assertion? If it were true, then why do we have as many "tweekers" here in UK, and why are there so many "experts" wanting us to part with our cash to improve our AC supply? I think you may be making excuses for the arguement of yours that I challenged!

Here is the reply I sent to some other poor chap who found his outlay on mains improvement was not money well spent! Why don't we put more faith in the integrity and experience of Hi-Fi manufacturers. I don't know any who decry the state of the AC supply being fed to their equipment. Furthermore, as argued previously, if mains was considered such a problem by manufacturers, they (at least high-end ones) would surely stop using their present method of generating DC from AC and would use batteries with a re-charge circuit engaging when off or in standby?
