    Re: Where to place your best Power Cord?

    While being a whole-hearted disbeliever still a couple years back, having heard it in my own system, I now do believe that good power is like salt in the food.

    Re: Where to place your best Power Cord?

    Hi.
    My findings is that the best PC for an amp is not necessary the best for a transport. And if a PC can change the sound it will be necessary to test it everywhere in the system. And I think that it is not given that any upgrade PC will be better because it cost more . I use a cheap brand called Nimak for most of my High-end system. But they're all different gauges. I also use a cheap Viborg on my pre-amp instead of a Ps Audio ac12. The price for the Ps Audio ac12 in Norway is 10 times more than the preferred Viborg.
    In my system it's more easy to hear difference between PC than interconnects.
    What I don't understand is that how these PC can change the sound given that the gauge is correct. If anyone can explain how it works it would be great.

    I am no EE, but what I am deducing is that they don't "change" the sound, but rather get rid of noise and interference that allows you to hear more of the music and instruments without being clouded by noise.

    Re: Where to place your best Power Cord?

    So after my Maze experience, I decided to stretch my budget a little and after speaking to Patrick, I just ordered a Gold Series cord from Cullen. Patrick also graciously took the time to answer other questions including suggested placement.

    He also suggested to place it on the APC if my Amp runs thru it, or the Amp itself if plugged direct to outlet.

    What a difference in companies!
