Good Inexpensive Power Cable? - Page 3

post #31 of 39

That's what I'm saying.  Haven't touched them yet.

it sounds like you've tried their power strips then, with less than desirable results. i have a couple of their larger units (eg. 3500 series) which hopefully don't suck eek.gif.

I settled on a high quality 10 ft medical grade cord. Thread has really sparked my interest. I have been a long time audio magazine reader/stereophile enthusiast and have a Monster power bar that did make a noticeable improvement in sound and picture quality. Sorry can not actually give model number since it is currently in storage. Thank you to those that guided me to save $.

I recently took the plunge and bought a quality power cable. The Vovox Initio Power, mainly because I'm really satisfied with their XLR cables so I trusted the brand on this one :

pretty affordable and well built, and sounds good to me :)

 

Though this cable is a bit unconventional because it's unshielded and with a solid core. In other words it is stiff like a copper pipe and opinions appear divided on if shielding is worse for sound quality or not.

I don't know what the MSRP is, but I have seen these retail for $135. Yea it's still not exactly "cheap" but I was under the impression that OP was looking for a compromise between snakeoil cables and cables that may have a price warranted by build quality :)

Zu Birth ... can be had for 50 bucks or so on ebay (where they have regular discounted specials) ... super good for the $$.

back on track - the Iron Lung Jelly Fish pwr cord is inexpensive and popular around here. after a search for reviews:

x2

 

I have a little dot mk III and decided to go for the Iron Lung, more curious then anything else and not a lot of money.  Spent a lot of time switching back and forth between the stock cable and have to say I really prefer the Jellyfish.  As always, YMMV, but it was a nice improvement for me!
