In the United Kingdom our power is very good and there is no need to enhance the power cables.
Right from generation to target the current is carefully monitored and regulated.
These mythological offerings are nonsense.

There is if you can believe it a review of one in the latest PAR - I wrote to challenge the author/editor that this was pure snake oil. He was comparing an expensive 14 guage ironing type audiophool cable with 18 guage zip cord and saying it was better! No, really? And there are ads for the same product in that issue too, are we surprised? It is more like a glossy blog than a real magazine any more...On Oct 6, 2009, at 8:04 AM, David Seubert wrote:Just a pet peeve here, but this company markets "high performance power cords," i.e IEC power cords. Last time I checked the electricity traveling to my equipment didn't give a damn what kind of copper was in the last three feet of the 1000 mile electrical transmission system or if the connectors were gold plated.In my opinion any "hi-end" audio company that is sells "high performance power cords" is not run by engineers, but by marketing people and practitioners of audio witchcraft.Stay away.David SeubertOn Oct 2, 2009, at 12:59 PM, Brandon Burke wrote:> Just stumbled across this online.
