Symptoms of UN-CLEAN power

When talking about CLEAN POWER, what SYMPTOMS or effects are caused by DIRTY or UN-CLEAN power?

Bigtwin, you already tried to mess up the tread twice. How about letting others answer the question for the OP.


For me, system noisy one day and quiet on others. Especially with tubes.

Having just went through a power upgrade, I can provide my experience. I went from an old electrical panel and one 15amp line to having a new panel and three dedicated 20amp 12gauge Romex lines, good Siemens breakers, each placed as far away as possible, better grounding, and run to quality Audioquest outlets. I kept it as simple as possible after doing a lot of research prior.


My system didn't sound bad before, but it went up several levels after the upgrade. Noise floor dropped significantly, bass strength and definition improved, more detail comes through, and the whole system sounds more 'effortless'. It made a bigger difference than many components I've added and was significantly cheaper.

Power cable influences on equipment has to do with a) less contact resistance b) less rfi and emi pick-up, and transfer to the component c) less cross-contamination from components on nearby other components and cables d) less voltage drop e) less (lower) leakage currents and parasitic capacitance between components.f) quicker rise times/faster current draw. 

But, if the incoming electricity is dirty the effect will be reduced offcourse,  

Sometimes changing one power cable can have an effect on other equipment in your system.You only hear the endresult. A lot of people have heard the change a good power cable can bring to your system. Who I am to judge? If you don't hear it, be happy and listen to some good music.

Love to hear other peoples experiences. 'Facts', 'Engineering' and 'Measurments'. can be discussed in Tech Talk.

I am sure the guys at Morrow Cables would like to help you out. 😉
