Ok, I'm a power cord skeptic, I admit it. BUT, I'm not a power cord basher. I don't rule out the possibility of sonic impact even if it does seem to defy common sense. However, up until now all I've ever done is buy some lower gauge thicker cords for my equipment. Cost me about $5 each. For one thing, I hate the way most after market power cords are over the top thick and have no flexibility. And many are so heavy they could actually damage your equipment. They are often ridiculously short as well. And I don't like those monster sized connectors on the ends. It's all very ugly. I would never buy any of those cords just based on appearance alone. I also would never spend serious money on power cords since I am a skeptic at heart.
However, if there was a cheap power cord that looked good, was flexible, and wasn't overly thick (while still providing a respectable low gauge conductor), I would definately consider hedging my bets and investing in that product. Why not? If it's cheap, and looks good, it can't hurt and it might just provide some of that sonic magic the power cord lovers are always talking about. Well, the Shunyata is just such a cord. At $99 for a nearly 5 foot cord, molded one piece with a very attractive look. Nicely flexible and only a smidge thicker than a my generic black hospital cords. Sign me up.
