I just read a post about power cord upgrades. Even the king ( Mike Knapp ) uses them which would suggest that there may be something to this. I know I'll get attacked for this but, $54.00 a foot for power cord? Where might I find the tests, data etc. that would warrant upgrading my power cords? What's next, building your own sub station in the basement? It seems to me that a maker of a 2000.00 receiver isn't going to compromise the perfomance by using a cord that limits it's ability to perform to specifications. Not trying to be ( too ) sarcastic but are we running out of areas to upgrade? Let the attacks begin !!
