Best power cables to reject noise, etc.?


Recommended Posts

I was looking at getting these:

 

http://www.analysis-plus.com/pro_powercable.html (or their home line oval 14)

 

for my DAC/AMP/Powered speakers/Computer, does anyone have other recommendations....(maybe there are cheaper solutions?) note this is not about sound quality but more about rejecting all noise.

 

Thanks!

Eupen are reasonable new, 25.00 on eBay for surplus. They have filters at the wall plug and ferrite in the jacket to reduce rfi and emf radiation.

They are only 10 amp rated, but that is 1250 watts. Volex 14/3 shielded are good also. If you need the additional current delivery.

The larger cable in a power cord makes a difference. I build some mono amps one time. Put in 2 amp slow blows and 18 ga power cords for initial power up and testing. Once checked out hooked up with 14 ga cords in the system. Blew the fuses on power up every time. Went to 3 amp slow blows and the 14/3 cords. You could hear the increased dynamics. These were 60 watt SS Amps.

Thanks guys! I ended up getting a couple of the lower end wireworld power cables from this place: http://www.thecableco.com/

 

It was relatively difficult to find em online, checked audiogon and ebay etc. But I mean I am willing to try a cable that was made with some sort of purpose (science?) in mind instead of the voodoo magic type ginormous cables.
