    Russ Andrews Yello Powercord is on buy one get one free (limited to one per person per household)

    Has anyone bothered with the Yello, and made it better/worse/same?

    I have a yellow powercord on my cd player and there is a noticeable improvement in the bass. Slightly deeper.

    Just phoned russ andrews, this offer is only avaliable to certain customers who received a letter stating this offer, they say its targeted at 'non buyers', as i didnt get a letter im not eligable, but i was given the buy one get one free offer anyway.

    Worthwhile getting one for a Tag DAC20, Lexicon MC-1 and Audiolab 800S?

    Not worthwhile for poweramps?

    Cheers.

    I've just bought one Yello (and got the free) one.

    Should be here next week, will connect upto Tag DAC and 8000S.

    If there is hardly any improvement a mate will take one off me.

    Got them today. They should be called "Blacko" because the sheath is black.

    Cable is thicker than normal mains cable... can't seem to hear any difference (connected to DAC & integrated amp)

    Ive just got mine, fitted one to my tv by cutting the original power cable and attaching a male IEC plug and plugging the yello cable into that.
    Havnt done any testing yet but will do later.

    nathan_silly, dont forget about the 'burn in' time, supposed to be about 500 hrs to see improvements ???

    By which time you've forgotten what it was like originally.

    One of these days I mean to try different cables to see if I can see a difference. Let us know how you get on.

    Tell me you're having a laugh?

    So the power comes out of the mains into your 'Yello' cable...then connects to a male-female IEC combination..then it's spat into the original mains lead.

    Just what do you expect to gain from this?


    anyway. my ranting is beside the point seeing as it's a complete waste of money in the first place.

    I've heard that you can buy 'pygmy blessed' cables imported on the backs of albino Yaks now too

    Perhaps you should try sticking these on a scope and do a wide band sweep and then make any comments?

    Think of these as 'insurance'. If you don't have jucky mains (lucky) they will do sod all for you, that is what they are designed for. If you do have yucky mains they certainly help. It is measurable and it is audible however it's effect in every situation is different. Hell it is even visible.:)

    I agree with Beekeeper- the proof of the pudding..........
    I was blown away when I bought my first upgraded mains cable 4yrs ago.
    Its easy to take the p... but have you actually seriously tested your equipment with decent mains supply.
    I think you'll be surprised at the difference it makes to the performance of your equipment.

    Mind you, there was always people who refused to believe the world was round, however much proof they were offered.
