Accuphase E-5000 factory power cord good enough?

I have Accuphase E5000 plugged into my Equitech son of q jr. balanced power supply. Sounds great and I have had the Equitech for a good 15 years now. Everything is dead quiet, not even a hiss coming from the system. Just started thinking about power cords and if it is worth it, I’m in the U.S., if that matters. Thanks

Not sure if this is the correct place to post this...



I use and can highly recommend a couple of Zavfino power cords: Majestic MKII and the Prima MKII, both OCC copper cords.....cryo treated, and broken in to an extent. The Prima MKII is taking longer to break in, the Majestic needed about 100 hours, but the Prima is on 200 hours and still improving....both would be great for an amp.

Also would recommend upgrading your power receptacles if you have not done so already: Furutech GTX-D(G-Gold), Furutech GTX-D(R-Rhodium), or the Oyaide R1.....I prefer the GTX-D(G) and the Oyaide R1.....but several others have disagreed, and strongly support the GTX-D(R)

Forgot to mention, the Oyaide R1 is the receptacle to consider,;not the Oyaide SWX series...big performance difference


from lalitk "I would look into Zavfino and Audio Envy brands".  I respectfully disagree, at least in part.  I have never owned or listened to Zavfino wires, but I purchased two AE power chords at a show. 

They were really cheap, so I figured what the heck.  After a break-in of 50+ hours, they STILL SOUNDED WORSE than the plain-black OEM power chords that came with my Pre-Amp and Amp (both Ayre).  Undeterred, I switched to the Anti-cable Level 3 - finally heard how a good power chord can improve Sound Q. 

I now own four of the A-C Level 3 power chords.  The AE power chords are still in a box in my garage: I tried to give them away on AG, but no takers - I think that speaks volumes.

P.S. I have no affiliation with either vendor.

Nelson Pass doesn't think you need anything other than the cord supplied with his amps, but then, what does he know?

Though I have read, in a few places, that Pass Labs uses Silent Source power cords and cables to voice their products...and also in their demo rooms at audio shows...
