I am already using their Kimber powerkord and High current powerkord on the cd and amp so figured what the heck and placed the order.....

Incidentally I am also using one of the standard powerkords as the mains lead in the Musical Fidelity x-psu............

To see what I have purchased (there is a 30 day money back guarantee thank god, though I admit I am sitting here thinking "what have I done !"

Click on the link and then scroll down the page until you get to the Russ Andrews Mains Accessories:-www.hifiplus.com/hi-fi_awards_2000.html

... and here I am contemplating if I made a mistake spending $300 on Etymotics. 350 quid for power conditioner?? Sure, why not... I feel better now.

Wow, very cool looking, man! Ummm.....what does it it do? Do you know of a site that describes the concepts behind the design?

I think my next big outlay will be an investment in a balanced power transformer. That my AC is unbalanced....makes me feel off-kilter. (yeah, I know....that was bad)

Nah jude, skip these little baby steps. Go straight for the gusto, and replace every power line in the house w/ new ones. Heck, why don't you just commission a new power station built exclusively for your house? It's the only way to be sure nobody else is screwing up your power!

The thought had crossed my mind, but my concern was the EMI that would almost certainly.....

EMI? No problem, just take the shielding off of about 5 million different cables and apply it over every wall in your house.

The Company does have a website at www.russandrews.com but its being "updated" at the mo

When the updates complete there should be a list of what products they do and what the products do!!

Basically it helps reduce mains noise and cancels all rfi (radio frequency interference).

Like I said in the original posting I have used their Powerkords to great effect, putting a high current one on the cd player was amazing. The system now sounds really good more importantly it does sound good pretty much anytime I play it!

Ever tried your system out and somedays it sounds great and others its like "hmmm sure it sounded better the other day!", well these babys are the answer (or at least one answer anyway

I'm looking at a week/fortnights delivery time now so could get it before the bank holiday in england )

May I just add that smoking some decent weed is a lot more effective than these tweaks? And it's good against asthma, too...

Greetings from Munich!

P.S.: Standard disclaimer: Of course, kids shouldn't do this at home, and even grown-ups should only do that where it's legal or at least tolerated - so far the Netherlands, most parts Switzerland, Belgium and recently Portugal, as far as I know.

P.P.S.: Alright, these tweaks can be effective if you really suffer from bad power. Nevertheless I find most of this "audio optimized" stuff overpriced.

Thats Ironic considering I had to take today off work ill due to ASTHMA

I'm "blaming" it on the damned hot weather (what is it with Britain at the mo?? it never used to get THIS hot ) and the increase in pollen in the atmosphere.....

Oh and its also causing my ears to get blocked up as well

Still back to work tomorrow......

Oh! Don't forget it's good for Glaucoma as well.

David, how did you put a power cord on the marantz amp and CD? have you "chopped" it off? and is there really that much difference?
