Default Power Cables/ IEC

Does anyone know where I can get the best price on either Marinco IEC 320 or Wattgate 320 connectors at?

Thanks

should help you out a little bit.

btw, i just bought two power cords for cheaper than i could dream of building them for. one of them uses the marinco 320 with a marinco 8215. these retail for around $40, i got the cable for $50! you can get it from www.signalcable.com build quality is great.

the other i JUST ordered, havent gotten it yet, from www.virtualdynamics.com i got the basic power. looks nice, good review. 3 inch circumference and only $39 for six feet!

i will never build a power cable again!

Instead of dealing with expensive IEC connectors, why not just wire the plug connector straight into your amplifier? wiring straight into the power supply fuse, then to the transformer.

wiring everything straight in is nice, but sometimes you like to upgrade cords and all that... its nice to be able to put in your own cords.
