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


My Experience to date, is that the PC Triple C requires a burn in period, where the time period to produce the most noticeable change has been with it being used with Speakers.

The PC Triple C has from my experiences, shown change as a betterment almost immediately when used on a Digital Source and SS items, especially SS Phonostages and other SS Amplification.

PC Triple C from my experiences has a much more subtle effect for the better, when used on Valve Equipment, the effect made, once recognised (which might be related to a burn in period), is enough to assure oneself, it is worthwhile maintaining.

I am also an advocate of D.U.C.C Wire as well, when used as an Interconnect with both Pure Silver and Pure Copper RCA's. My experiences of using this Wire is one where it has been detected the Wire is capable of adding a hint of weight / richness and not being compromised in any of the attractive revealing qualities.     

What I will  say is  this:  I  removed everything from the glass shelfs  - this has made a huge difference.

Power cable ...furutech triple c wire.Yes that was a good move.Now get some nice maple slabs and report back.Some of littlest tweaks reap nice changes.


What is PC Triple C

Ok, since you asked:

Japanese PC Triple C copper is made in Japan’s Furukawa plant and is the next-generation version of the Japanese Ohno (Continuous Crystal) copper (a.k.a., Ohno continuous Cast Copper - OCC). Furutech’s PC Triple C stands for Pure Copper Continuous Crystal Construction.

After the "Continuous Crystal Construction" process is complete, further processing by the "Transfer Forging Method" produces thinner gauges of wire. The forging process dramatically improves conductor density by removing oxygen, which improves the conductivity of the copper. A lengthy temperature and time controlled annealing process is then carried out according to the thickness of the wire, causing the crystals to fuse with each other, creating an even more linear crystal structure.

Annealed copper became the international standard to which all other electrical conductors are compared and, in 1913, the International Annealed Copper Standard designated commercially pure annealed copper to have conductivity of 100% IACS. Electrolytic-tough pitch (ETP) copper (ASTM C11040) is the main grade of copper used for electrical applications and is at least 99.90% pure with electrical conductivity of 101% IACS. Oxygen-free copper (OFC - ASTM C10100) is about 1% more conductive and achieves a minimum of 101% IACS.

When asked what the deal was with PC OCC copper, one industry professional replied,

One word: Marketing. Same as with OFC years earlier.

The issue is not whether there are differences in the wire, but whether those differences are reliably audible...which is for another thread.
