Can a better power cable make a difference if NOT plugged directly into an outlet?
I use Shunyata Alpha v.2 for power. XC from wall, dedicated 20amp Oyaide R1 to a Denali 6000S V.2 NR for amp and streamer, Shunyata Delta EF from Sub to wall with a Shunyata Defender. Also an AudioQuest NRG-Z2 for the DAC power supply
