    Hi,
    My matey darkan9el has just took delivery of his Philips 9986. Mine arrives Thursday. I have used differant mains cables in the past with both CRT's and hi-fi/Home Cinema kit to good effect.

    Has anyone tried a differant make of mains cable with their Philips 32PF9986?

    What, if any differance did you find?

    thanx for any replies.

    I've not seen this discussed actually (someone correct me if I'm wrong). With a purchase this big, plus getting all the Scart and DVI cables sorted - I don't think many people would think about changing the mains lead (or have much spare cash to do it with!). It is an area that I imagine is quite difficult to pin-down in terms of perceived benefits. Whether "cleaner" mains would make any perceptible difference in, say, the sometimes reported low level "buzzing" on this TV (sometimes attributed to the Ambilight and other times to different contrast settings) or to the picture quality, remains to be seen.

    Hi,
    I have put seperate spurs in to feed my Naim 2 channel rig, with huge sound quality benefits. I also had a good friend make up some mains leads for the feed between the wall socket and the relevant piece of kit, again to my ears an improvement in clarity etc.

    I just wondered if anyone had found the same with the TV. Russ Andrews, for example, suggests cleaner mains gets you a clearer picture...! :eek:

    regards,
