But as an owner of a Pioneer LX5090 I can say that the panel buzz has been lessened quite a bit with a change of cable to a Chord power cable.
Any thoughts on the PS Audio Power Plant Premier then.....
Changing the power cable that is provided with the 42PQ3000 for a more expensive one is, I am sorry to say, a waste of £45.
Power cables have no effect on picture or sound quality.
If power cables did have an effect on picture or sound, this could be measured by test equipment or demonstrated in a double-blind subjective test but no-one has ever managed to do so.
Good clean mains does make a difference, I have a ringmain and a set up with dedicated spurs on a dedicated line. All using high quality, low impedence cabling (Note I did not say high cost)
I am VERY sceptical about expensive mains cables, but open minded about the concept that different RF cable properties might have an impact. But dedicated spurs work, I can and have A-B'd. I have A-B'd to numerous others, two are now about to install a dedicated supply.....
Have a read about main spurs, impedence and interference and be open minded.
For me it was one of, if not the most cost effective upgrade I have made to my system.
This could probably be fixed by shielding, and then the cost of the cable would still be small (nowhere near £45).
I find it absolutely incredible that this is not illegal !
I thought this thread was about the benefits of new ultra expensive power cables not about a major rewire of the house.
Obviously this could not just improve your hi-fi but also more general components in your house.
Also would be wise ro engage a qualified electrition unless of course this is also in your sphere of exertise.
I still remain sceptical about your enthusiasm about the benefits you claim and £300 cables.
If you think £45 is way too much for a mains lead (and I do too), how about this Silver Signature PowerKord fro Russ Andrews, a mere £5,490.00 for a 2 m length. !!
