power cable

I got a great deal on a power chord. My question is do I use it on the streamer or the amplifier?


Yes builder3. Chords are for music. Cords are for electrical purposes.

But then the power chord comes in.

"A power chord play is a colloquial name for a chord in guitar music, especially electric guitar, that consists of the root note and the fifth, as well as possibly octaves of those notes. Power chords are commonly played on amplified guitars, especially on electric guitar with intentionally added distortion or overdrive effects. Power chords are a key element of many styles of rock, especially heavy metal and punk rock. Wikipedia"

Come on guys, you know exactly what he meant. 

Power cord upgrades to amps tend to produce the greatest effect, and can be huge. For instance, my Audio Research Ref 160s comes with a very heavy copper 20 amp power cord. The first and all subsequent power cords I tried were much better, but many pushed the sound tonally, ever so slightly. It took me a year of occasionally trying something different until I found the perfect match… and it was way better. It was an Audioquest Hurricane. Absolutely no tipping of tonal balance, much quieter, more dynamic.

Yeah, usually the power amp, though it can depend on the cord and on the equipment. For me it is Purist Audio Dominus Ferox, either power amp or integrated, either SS or tube. I have Top Gun from Custom Power Cord Company on the sources. The Dominus works great everywhere but especially on power amps. Heard good things about Shunyata and some Audioquest cords but never tried them.
