Most important power cable.

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I have a few extra power cables to play with. One is a Oyaide Tunami power cable. Alright guy/gals, where do you put the best power cable you have on you rig? Source, pre-amp, amp or whatever else? Just want to make sure I'm on the right track?

why not plug it into all of your components, and see which makes it sound better to you?

higher quality pc's/ic's should be put the closer you are to the source ... you can cut corners the further downstream you are ... BUT these are of course gross generalities -- different materials / solid cores / synergy can have marked effects

I would use it on the source, since that is were most of the low-level signal is handled.
That said, why not try out on your own?

I also go for the source. When ever I try out a new power cord I always try it out with the source to get a feel of how it sounds with my system. =)

unless your power distributor has a detachable cord, put it on the source. if you use a powerbar/power conditioner, you may want to use the cord on it, since it feeds everything.

Yes my Furman power conditioning has a nice power cable on it. So does my Darkvoice and Arcam. I have been swapping a lot of cables between them. Everybody's gear is different so I was thinking their results would be different too. Like to me the Darkvoice has the most change with a power cable. The Arcam likes bigger gauge cables. It sounds a little muted with smaller gauge cables. I have stuff from 15 AWG up to 10 AWG. The Furman is great recabled with Silver Plated Copper. Just on power cable overload at the moment.

The component that has the worst internal power supply as it will benefit most from the better power cord. My cdp has a very good power supply and benefits little from high-grade power cords.
