2. From your experience or just a guess?
3. Not true. There are many blind and double blind test out there where 10 of 10 is commonplace.
4. Not true. There are plenty of reasons that the should and do. There is more than inductance, capacitance and resistance at work in properly designed cabling.
5. Logic without all of the facts is simply opinion.
Not trying to invite flames or arguments. I’ve just been involved in too many double blind tests where cables of all types are identifiable every swap. That and having 40 years in cable design.
It seems to create a darker background overall, akin to having greater contrast and black levels on a video display. I can't really say if the music or vocals THEMSELVES sound better, it's more like they are better able to be presented because the backdrop is cleaned up a bit. Not sure if that makes any sense
]It's sad that almost every time the subject of power cords "making a substantive improvement in sound quality" is stated in a thread, someone comes along to derail the subject by emphatically indicating power cords cannot possibly make a difference. I truly wish the mods would sometimes intervene to remove all the sidetracking as many people likely tune out and leave the thread.

I did submit one post to this thread already, but I want to relate an experience when I first installed the power cord that I referenced in my post. At the time, I was using a well known brand of power cord that listed for over $1k. While music was still playing, I powered off each of the two monoblock amps that I was using, so no sound was being produced by my speakers. I disconnected each power cord from the amps and replaced them with the new one. I walked up to the left power amp and switched it on. The music resumed from that left speaker. Immediately, before even turning on the right amp or returning to the normal listening position, the change in the sound was so much more realistic that found myself saying "holy $#!+". The improvement was that dramatic and obvious. That degree of difference didn't require blind A/B switching to detect, nor was it related to a difference in volume level. Since then, others (both audiophiles and casual observers) have heard the same difference and can consistently identify which power cord is being used just from the sound of the music.Best,Robert
Absolutely correct toocool4, we encourage all members to post their opinions and experiences, your post is an excellent example of how to do it. But everyone knows what the divisive posts are, an appeal to authority followed by thinly veiled insults to responses. We can do both, not put up with trolling and encourage the free expression of ideas.
Yeah. Most non-hobbyists don't understand why audio things cost so much nor why one would spend that much. I think it's often just a matter of exposure. Once one hears music they truly love reproduced on a nice system, it's not as hard for them to get their head around the cost...even if they still may not completely agree with it.
My wife believes it all sounds the same.
