You are the joke my friend. Enjoy ! MrD.  
Should I upgrade my preamp?
I would 1st want to know from your words, specifically, what sq are you missing from your system ?, and / or what sq are you trying to add to your system ?, and / or, you just got the upgrade bug ? There are many things we can do to enhance our sy... 
A stupid question(s) about power cords
Everyone should buy one and try it out. Let it settle in for 100 or so hours. A very nice sounding cable at the price. @audphile1 I tried them all. I happen to like the Rhodium...in my system, to my ears, it has a slightly more open and airy top e... 
Power cords: does length matter?
Wow, some surprising comments here. Enjoy !  
Power cords: does length matter?
@jasonbourne71 another brilliant statement from you 🤣, and you have company, as it turns out. Using wire hanger material as you suggested sounds dull and lifeless in the higher frequencies, and over blown in the bass. I have experimented with it m...

A stupid question(s) about power cords
Let me be clear. I never stated the Rhodium is the one I recommended. The manufacturer gives you a choice, and I am very familiar with both. I hear no less detail, or anything less, listening with the Rhodium connectors. However, as I did mention,... 
A stupid question(s) about power cords
Hmm. Rhodium plating has become popular in connectors. I am not concerned with the toxins from a plug or two. The reasons you mentioned are likely why they are brighter. Copper is generally the go to, as I indicated as the safer bet. My best, MrD.   
A stupid question(s) about power cords
First of all, you are again, over thinking. We are talking under $50. How many electronic components have plastic tops ? Any piece you own ? That is the best from Preffair. The shell is aluminum alloy. It does great. I would say, if you feel bette... 
A stupid question(s) about power cords
Not sure, but these have the best connector housings / shells of them all.  
A stupid question(s) about power cords
Rhodium is a touch brighter at the very top, vs copper. Copper is smoother, possibly the safer bet.
