    Differences in audiophile power cords are way over rated!
    The cord is only a small percentage of the entire series circuit that extends to that big power company transformer down the street.

    Hello

    I started off at the get go repurposing power line cables that were in a drawer so never knew what they contributed until I swapped one out last week that was stranded to solid core on a LPS feeding a modem and switch. I have a review on here, “The Digital Front End”.

    The difference was obvious as the cord was breaking in with the ups and downs of the process -

    I’ll know better later this week as the cable will be north over 100 hours and I’m also pulling an Ansuz of my Transport I stopped using other then HDMI in for Apple TV and see what it does. If it’s not a big difference with the Transport/Apple and crazy good on the modem it will stay.

    On the floor after replacing the Audio Quest NGR with my Ansuz C into the Keces.

    I just don’t get why this is improving the sound even more.
