Arcam Alpha 8 Amplifier power cord replacement?!


Novice Member
Hi All!

I was wondering if anyone couple help me out. I have an Arcam Alpha 8 Amplifier at home that I'm trying to set up for my partner. But the power cord has gone missing. I've been searching the Internet trying to find what cord it can be replaced by but haven't found a reputable answer and I don't want to just go with any of them and mess the device up.

I'm not picky about quality as long as it works well and won't damage the amp in any way. I'm in Ireland BTW.

So if anyone knows the type of cord replacement for Arcam Alpha 8 Amp or can send me a link to one id be over the moon

Pretty sure IEC, can't remember two or three pin

An earthed IEC lead (commonly called a kettle lead, the correct technical term is an IEC C13 lead with the plug designated as an IEC C14) will fit a none earthed appliance but not the other way around.

This lead will work if the amp had either 2 or 3 pins, although I'm 99% sure the Arcam is earthed, my Alpha 7 was at least.
