Basically, I am not a big proponent of using fancy cables for the lower priced headphone stuff, you know, the $100-300 DACs and headphone amps (which is what I have). Personally, I have only noticed worthwhile differences when I use higher end equipment.
However, for $60-80 if you can clean up some power supply noise, well, why not?
You really have to try it yourself, I often find that power cord and power bar upgrades may remove a bit of grit and/or grain from your sound system. Hard to describe, unless you've heard it yourself!
If you don't hear anything, send the cable back. I'll say one other thing: sometimes you replace the original cable and don't hear anything. So you put the original cable back in and say, hmm, it actually does sound better with the other cable!
When you say..."Higher end equipment"" are you referring to the power cables,or,.all components?
Here is what I'm using-
Dell desktop 8gb ram computer,,mjolnir/gungnir,,emotiva mini,,he-6..,lcd2's...,foobar with all lossless files.
The setup also includes a large format printer,for my photography/printing needs.
This is a lot of wires.,and although I've done my best to keep things separated & not in contact with one another,,I still feel some cables might be touching each other-I am in a very condensed space
As,I am not aware of any electrical interference,noise,.I am assuming,it is there,..,however,,but not audible to my older cryoed ears..so up came the power cord idea?
After getting the reply from Jason at Schiit....I threw the idea out the window
I will take your suggestion,and get one of the Signal cables,or the power strip.
If you have any links to other manufactures of this kind of products,please,I'd appreciate a link,if you can.
