    AC cables on sale

    We have recently been arguing over replacement AC cables. MusicDirect has the PS Audio power cords at 50% off. If anyone is interested in experimenting the PowerPunch is now $30 and it is a nice power cord. One thing I like about the cable is you can unscrew the ground pin. I have been reading that you should try the sound of components with and without ground to hear which is best. I unscrewed the ground pin and there has been an improvement in sound. There is less hardness to the sound and the music has a better sense of flow. I do not own a power conditioner and if you are using a good one you may not notice any improvement. If you plug your amplification directly into the wall socket it might be an interesting experiment. If you have a standard three prong plug just use a cheater plug and decide which sounds best. I know several will mention safety issues about not using the ground but I am after the best sound. I am interested to know if anyone notices an improvement. Thanks

    The Power Punch came free with my int. amp and I have only compared it to the original power cord that came with the amp. It is much superior to the manufacturers power cord.
