Heres a list of all the complete power tweaks that I have made in my system:-
Powercords x3 two normal one High current. The two normal ones are on my amp and on my mf xpsu. The high current is on the cdp.
Silencers x4 one next to the fridge and freezer one next to the tv plug in the block and one next to the computer.
1 3m Yello extension block (bought this cause I couldnt afford the extortiante amount required for the proper 8 way distrubtion block)
1 Eight way distruibtion block. At that price its going to remain one as well. Have it plugged into the yello as mentioned above.
I think thats about it, and if anyone else points out that I could have bought a new component for that lot I'll brain them ok??
Has the net result been worth it? by and large I would say yes. When I first got my marantz 66 KI Signature amp and Ki signature cd player it was hooked up with cable talk and then vdh ics and qed qudos speaker cable and the cold hard impenetrable sound that it was making was immensely dissapointing, it stayed like that even after running in (and yes I did audition it!)So I took the plunge above and lo and behold everything is sounding much more impressive. Vocals are clearer, bass is now there and plays a tune quite well so by and large I am happy. The most intresting effect has been on volume! I am now playing it at a lower level and it seems LOUDER!! For example I could be playing a cd that seems quite loud, step outside the door and you can hardly hear it! I call that a result.
I think the next step for me is to send back one of the standard current powercords and replace it with a high current one (they have a buy back scheme, depending on the condition its generally 100% back if you return it within a year, 50% in two years etc!!)that one'll be for the amp....
Incidentally Jude Russ Andrews accessories have finally updated there website, its at www.russandrews.com
