The Red on right for an audiophile delight! This is because of there a right way and a wrong way to connect power cables to your system.
I have found when visiting people the first thing to do is check their power system because many people do not seem to understand there are a right way and a wrong way to connect the power cables.
It is very easy to check because all you really need is an electricians screwdriver that can be bought at any hardware store. This is a very low-cost item but you will be surprised just how effective this little tool is when applied to the audiophile’s domain. And, I have found that even experienced audiophiles have even missed this check when trying to set up their systems so this is really a basic MUST!
The Red on right
Plugin your power cord to your mains power outlet on the wall. Look at the IEC connection at the other end of your power cord.
Put the electrician’s screwdriver into the RIGHT-hand side of the plug as shown in the picture and if the power cord has been put in the correct way the light in the electrician’s screwdriver will light up. This is providing of course that you have one finger on the end of the screwdriver.
I will say that not every person knows how to use an Electricians screwdriver, so when you buy it then please ask and you will understand. If the light does not come on then all you have to do is rotate the plug in the wall 180 degrees and test again.
When you have finished with the main power cord you must then check every other power cord that you have in your system. Normally a person has the main power cord supplying a power distribution board and so it is essential that every power cord has to be checked.
From the board to the amplifier. From the board to the CD player. From the board to the DAC and from the board to the turntable. From the board to the pre-amplifier if used and also from the board to the main amplifiers if a pre-amplifier is used. And, It is amazing how a small tool and make such a big difference so remember Red better right.
Your system is now in phase and everything is now working together and so the sound that you hear will be better in many ways because everything is now operating the way to which it was designed to be.
