A true story about Power cords
This was Eiriks story and not mine
Where to start
Many years ago, I was happy to use cables supplied with components. Using a light cord for speaker cables and a kettle cord for a power cord seemed to work well. I was happy to put on ‘Foot Tapper’ and listen to the Shadows in my bedroom!
Over the years, improvements in technology have taken audio to a new level. We are told we must use ‘this’ to prevent ‘that’ and we need ‘that’ to help with ‘this’ but is it all really necessary? Very confusing for a person who is entering into the wonderful world of audio – just as I did fifty years ago and knew nothing!
I will say to any person who is thinking about buying a Power cord –
Do not listen to anybody only listen to yourself!
Borrow a Power cord, put it into your system, sit back and listen. Then, answer these questions – How does your system sound? What does the new Power cord do? Are there any sonic improvements? Are the improvements worth the cost of the Power cord?
It really is that simple but, it all depends on the Power cord you will try. There are many great Power cords. Many good Power cords and also many poor Power cords. You just have to look and find a Power cord that is the right one for you!
