Mains Power Cable DIY

I'd like to DIY a main power supply to my system.
I'd like to do this in two or three stages
1st to build a power cable from the wall to my amp
2nd to build a mians distribution for all the gear

And 3rd: I'm waiting to renovate my condo.
At that time I'll have a primary circuit from the panel to stereo run
If anyone can offer their experience and specific details I'd much appreciate it
Currently I'm running an old "gang box" ....something I made during my construction days. Tonight I took the wall socket apart , cut it back and reconnected everything and there was a fair difference in what I heard.
I'm specifically looking at wire sizes and recommendations for shielding and what it all looks like. TIA. Appreciate your experiences


@smaarch1 - take a look at this DIY cable - it is excellent

Here are some member reviews of the Helix Cables

  • it's a bit of a read, but worth the effort

The are very much worth the effort

I 've been making own my power cables for years now. This morning I purchased; FURUTECH FP-S35TC PC-TripleC new technology & Schuko Furutech FI-E50 FI-50M FI-50 NCF Nano Crystal. I believe in burn in, so I'm going to switch out my Refrigerator line for about 3 weeks. I'll keep you updated.

Thank you Williewonka and Danmar123
Both great instructables that I need to spend some time with

 If you`re looking for a real upgrade buy some 12awg solid firealarmcable. Nothing else comes close

I suspect the fire alarm cable sounds good but, why stop there?  The mc cable shown below has three 10awg connectors (H/N/G) and a metal casing that can be connected at the source end for shielding.  

Unfortunately, solid core wire has poor flexibility and can only safely be used in fixed installations and not in situations where the cable is subjected to being flexed due to the risk of the conductor and/or insulation failing if moved repeatedly.  This is probably why more audiophiles don't use Romex as power cables.
