You are very foolish Poobah to criticise without trying first. I don't care one way or another.

Can you explain what a 1500$ Power cable can do compared to a 500$ cable. ?

That's kinda pushing it. Here is the connector i recommend & use.

a 4$ cable is kinda cheap. BUT id say from 150$ - 300$ is pretty good

So is this audiophile mains fuse before or after the house fuse ?? ...and is the $x00 power cable before or after the house wiring?

Seems I'm a wookie too.


....I sense a moderator nearby.

Nope...

Unless you're going to rewire the utility all the way back to the generator (which is virtually impossible... because thousands of generators are running in synch), you're peeing in the ocean and hoping the tide will rise.

Do the math... math started all this... why should it be discarded now?

No, I'm not,

This is a very important point for all to realize. Look into the problem with some data in hand. Harris, at one point, had some illuminating stuff on AC line quality. What some people choose to do on the last 2 meters of a cable that is a hundred thousand meters of grid line (not to mention the tap-switching transformers) is just silly... also their own business.

Just don't teach as Gospel or science, that which you really don't know, to a newbie.

Why is this so hard?

Bevo, I am sorry, but you are not going to get a knowledgeable answer on this thread.
I don't think that this should be first on your list of upgrades, but the fuses are real, have gotten good subjective feedback, and 'may' make a difference. The 'experts' here have not met the manufacturer as I have, or tried even to compare line cords to see if there is a difference. I suggest that you ask elsewhere.

What john is trying to say is that, given the hard times that we are living in economical terms, if you want to have enough money to go to strip clubs and fed dollars to the dancers (and later go to worse places to pay for doing worse things), you have to be open minded...

For example, you can manufacture $30 audiophile fuses and persuade a bunch of audiofools to expend their money in fuses rather than girls...

BTW: I hate those male attitudes...
