Anyone tried these:
I'm ordering about 6.
Let us know how they sound when you get them. You would think that 14 gauge cable would be a step or two above the stock 18 gauge cable you normally get with electronics. That $9.99 price is also worth a try.
Very decent power cord-- FYI-- these come standard with alot of devices in the medical field for years. A steal for 10 bucks.
Now to answer your question-- yes I have used them and they seem to play very well with analog gear,,and also headphone amps,,ext phono preamps.
here is a nice little review,, #6
I await photoshoot and video of the Quail Electronics #0313.072 in action while intertwined with fake tree. :wink:
If you want to take it to the next level of Nirvana, mould some PlayDoh around the connectors.
I've got some of those - the cute "Jelly" ends only came with the short cords. I think anything over 3' had solid ends. Not that it matters...or does it!? :twisted:
They are a good quality power cord.
I have not used these, but remember reading some positive reviews of these cables about 1.5 years ago. I remember people saying that they are a great cable for the price. Definately worth a try for $9.99.
Can anyone confirm if these Power Cords come with the clear ends like in the picture ?
I mean the 6 FT Length showing in the original post.
They have 10 footers also. Thanks for the info. Now i can move my 505's.
I hate extension cords!
I have a few, and they are very well made. I purchased mine a few years ago from somewhere else, and they do look like the pictures linked here.
These Power Cords are now on for an additional 10% off. I just ordered 4 to experiment with. Three 6 Ft and One 10 Ft for a sub. Can't beat these prices and the reviews are very good. Should be a lot better than stock 18 Gauge. I will try one on my Pioneer SC-35 that still has the 18 Gauge stock cord ( I know...... it should have been changed long ago ).
Another similar option since I do own both are these power cords: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Gray-AC-Powe...item4844ee4448
They are very well constructed, and along with the Jelly Fish cords, everything a consumer would need who doesn't want to jump up to something much more expensive and esoteric.
Anyone should try this one. That $9.99 price is also worth a try. So...
Belated thanks for the link! I picked up 3 of them a few weeks ago (the 10-footers)...I'm gonna burn 'em in and put them on my pre and cdp. I'll try to remember to come back and tell y'all what I think.
btw used this, got something like 5$ off my purchase. Should still be good for a little bit.
Looks like a computer power cord if you ask me. At 10 bucks a shot I wouldn't expect your audio world to be on fire though. Pick up one of Pepsters cords or from Doug, both are quality cables that offer up nice improvements over stock cords if budget is a major concern.
If you assume aesthetics has something to do with performance, which I don't btw.
More than enough you say, cool if that's all you expect from a PC. While we all know power cords are nothing "new", design/materials used/metallurgy/connectors/plugs all have improved over time.
The impression I got was that these cords were considered giant-killers when they were sold by someone (whose name I forget, sorry) who put them through the extra process of cryo'ing them.
They're intended for medical use, which sounds very srs, but doesn't necessarily mean anything when it comes to audio. However, they've still got some cachet as cheap-but-good aftermarket cords, and that guy at hifi.com thought highly of them. I figure at $10 a pop, they can't be any worse than the similarly-priced aftermarket cords that I already use, which (I think) sound better than my OEMs. I've already proven to myself, to my own satisfaction, that cords make a difference (and not always a good one).
Plus, I like playing around with "accessories", as long as they're not too expensive. And the blue plastic terminals are pretty.
Bumping an old thread.....
Anyone who got them recently want to post some thoughts? Looking for some cheap (underscore cheap) upgrades to my HT setup, 2 channel, and work setup. So in my HT looking at a 6 footer for my Pioneer 51FD, Integra DRT 5.9 (pre only) and my Carver M1.0t plus a 10 footer for my Elemental Designs a2-300. In my 2 channel looking at using 6 footers with my computer, Sunfire TGP-II, and Parasound HCA-700ii. In my headphone setup looking at 6 footers for my computer & my DAC/headphone amp.
You get what you pay for pal.....and 10 bucks won't get you much.
I have a few on the way. It's hard to get decent 110 AC cables over here.
