But $795 vs $1.25. And the cords I already own, plus I do make my own too.
Don't give up the cords....
Improving the quality of AC is one matter. It should be done.
Yet, consider the power cords to be benevolent "tone controls." For on the right kind of systems power cords do definitely change what is heard. If you have such a system that offers that kind of transparency, changing a power cord will change what is heard. To say it will not, is a confession that one either has bad hearing, or a system that lacks transparency needed.
Playing with certain cords makes everything smooth and sweet in an unrealistic way.... That system will be no good to experiment with fuses and cords as long as certain cords remain influencing the sound.
Good cords will allow for you to hear the benefits of what a good AC conditioner can do. So, its a win-win when you keep an open mind. One compliments the other.
A while back while I was listening with a DAC 10 I tried a "More than a Fuse -Platinum." Everything sounded pleasantly rich and full and in a very realistic detailed way. But, I was forced to remove it. Why? My apartment neighbor gave a loud knock on my wall because of the density of the bass it produced. I said "density." Not loudness. Go figure.
There is much to learn. Not everything can be measured because they do not yet know what they need to measure for.
