    Mattyhew,
     
    Try David (sales@mains-cables-r-us.co.uk) at http://www.mains-cables-r-us.co.uk/ as he's very knowledgeable about all things cable and mains related. 
     
    Cheers,
     
    Andy.

    Well crikey, I go off on a train voyage across Europe, Siberia and Asia to Japan for one and a half months and I come back to find that you've all been given £5000 worth of prizes out of Andy's pocket whilst I've been gone. I've also had confirmation of my first choice university place today, so I can confirm that I'll definitely be able to attend the meet with no clashing of dates.
    Whilst in Japan I picked up a K550 I'll be bringing along, as well as a number of exciting Japanese CDs. I think I'll have to sort my playlists into 'Non-offensive,' 'Offensive,' and 'Very Offensive' depending on how Japanese they are...

    What makes you think it's the power cable which is causing the static? I don't see how a mains lead could cause this personally. Are you sure you haven't got a ground loop issue? If you can describe the symptoms in more detail there may be alternative solutions (i.e. cheaper!).

    If I book a room it'll likely be for the Saturday night as that's when the post meet social is.

    Well because when i swapped it out for another kettle lead i had it went away ^^. Since i thought they were all pretty much identical, i had a big box of them from old PSUs etc. 2 of them gave static/interference while the one im using now doesnt :).
     
    What leads do you guys use? Or would i £5 one from amazon suffice for me?

    a bit of topic but I really rate my Sony Walkman Z1070 64gb (I just bought another, I've now got two), so this may be of interest to someone...
     
    Anyone wanting a non-volume capped version of the Sony Walkman Z1060 32gb... I know of a US-Version that could be up for sale.
     
    This is a lightly used Z1060 with no scratches or chips on the front or sides, a couple of minute marks on the back which is from having it on a desk (bit unavoidable if you ain't got a case when you buy one & cases were hard to get until about two month ago), a deal can be done on Customs so you won't be hit for horrendous taxes, shipping from the USA will be tracked.
     
    pm me if your interested in the next day or so and I'll put you in touch with this respected Head-Fi'er direct (he is doing this as a favour to me as he can easily sell it in the USA).

    I just use what came with my Amp, some swear by special electrical cables but I've yet to hear a earth-shattering difference... maybe I need to upgrade my ears.

    A logical conclusion! [​IMG]
     
    Still odd though. Were they all earthed leads (i.e. three metal prongs/receptors at each end?). Did you use the same socket each time? Is the connection snug/secure with all of them?
     
    Was your equipment in the same position each time? Sometimes the feet are connected to the chasis earth and if they touch another grounded chasis that can cause problems I believe. A piece of paper between stacked equipment normally solves this.
     
    If you have a kettle lead and the interference goes away that's what I would use. I just use old computer power cables with all of my equipment too.

    Erm, am I missing something blatantly obvious here?

    Cheers,

    Andy.

    Huh,

    Please explain the £5000 prize thingy as I know nothing about it!

    Cheers,

    Andy.
