Power cords: does length matter?
Matt, ime, keep power cables under 2 meters, if at all possible, and allow room for the bending and routing of them, keeping them as far away from the speaker and all interconnect cables, however possible with minimal parallel runs between them. M...

@rodman99999 my dear friend, you are so correct. 👍 However, I find silver, and silver plating in cables, extremely system sensitive, more so than the others, ime. My best, always, MrD.  
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
Rhodium is a touch brighter at the very top, vs copper. Copper is smoother, possibly the safer bet.

From the page you sent me, click on "visit the preffair store...you will see the one. Spiral stripe on grey. Select the metals for connectors and the length you need.  
A stupid question(s) about power cords
Yes, Preffair, but a 10 gauge cable. Can get it with plastic shells or aluminum shells. Google : Amazon - Preffair Audio. You should be at their main page. Down on the right side, top right power cable. The one I am recommending has aluminum barre... 
A stupid question(s) about power cords
OP, if you have not purchased a power cable yet....do this. Amazon/Ebay : Preffair Audio : Power Cable :  Amazing for the money < $50. Have questions about these, let me know. I have recommended these to many of my colleagues and all claim they... 
A stupid question(s) about power cords
Do not worry about it. Buy a cable, use it, break it in, and report back.   
Coda #8, Pass XA25, or Schiit Tyr to replace PS Audio M700
OP, the XA25 is not bridgeable, as an fyi. A pair can be used to horizontally / vertically passive bi amp, or actively bi amp through an electronic crossover. Do you have the 1+1s in a room with low ceiling height. The problem can be the speakers ...
