Power cables, a touchy subject with Audiophiles. Audiophiles are roughly separated into 3 camps when it comes to power cables.
- They make a difference, those who don’t think so are not listening
- They do not make a difference, those who think they do are not measuring
- People sitting on the fence looking over in glee
Goes without question I am in camp #1. Power cables make a difference. /thread.
But the arguments continue. The second most common take down from the other camps is that expensive power cables is no different to any power cable you brought at a local store.
There is no point getting better power cables than what you can buy from a local store because you have tens of metres of “normal” in wall cabling, and kilometres of grid cabling. In other words, the power cable is not the weakest link on the grid. There is little point getting after-market/audiophile power cables when everything on the grid is of poor quality.
Is this true? Let us take a closer look!
