Ok sorry then for my reply. I can see if it sounded strange considering how the plugs look in some countries.

I thought it was a joke at first, but realized you obviously have a different outlet than us yankees

Don't you mean a feedback loop? I know it sounds better to plug the fase into the fase and the nill into the nill, this way you don't create a feedback loop. If you do it the other way, fase on the nill etc, it sounds worse!

Maybe. I dunno how it works. It just sound better one way than the other

Since we can't plug in our power cords upside down here in the states, has anyone tried listening while they are hanging upside down?

In regards to the power cord thing: i would try, but all my equipment has a ground thing (the third round bar, that is a ground, right?)

That's the safety ground, yeah. Even without it you still probably wouldn't be able to try, since the vast majority of plugs are polarized now (with the neutral pin wider than the live pin).

I'll have to add that the power plug I was using didn't have any ground or some sort of polarisation so that might be the cause of this phenomenon. If a power plug only can be set in one way they are probably already made the "right" way so it might be pointless to turn it around even if you could.

(But I could be all wrong, I’m not particularly good with this sort of things.)

I tried, but my cans keep falling off.
