    Just more of the same audio has to offer: BS, voodoo, myths, unsuported claims, expensive price tags for what is offered, etc.
    And, in this case, it is ugly.

    I can understand making an expensive power cord at least look like it is worth the mony, but these power cords look like something you would find in a McDonalds happ meal for audophiles.

    "...and would you like some hype with that, sir?"

    LOL! Of all the marketing rap I've heard about anything associated with audio, Mapleshade takes the cake.

    Hi mtry

    they actually do make some pretty good Cd's. I'm not sure what type of music you enjoy listening to (why is that?)...but their sampler (music festival) is worth looking into. Good music and good recordings. I enjoy them.




    oh...yeah. The MapleShade tweaks? no thank you.



    take care>>>>>>>>>>

    Probably. Hopefully it is of sufficient guage to trip a circuit breaker(or fuse) in the event of a short.

    BTW - it gets even better, this was in the (online) Owners Manual:

    "Never lay this (or any other wire in your system) on a carpeted or plastic tile floor—nor any plastic molding or plastic wall covering. The proximity of bad-sounding dielectric will seriously degrade the sound of even the best cables."

    hahahaahhahahhahahhahahahhhahhahahhaa

    Man.....these guys are really twisted.

    If it wasn't for damn subconscious I would go into the high end audio accessory business.

    Why? Because this is not the music forum But, just for you, I like a variety of music, classical, as a starter, Yanni, Dianna Krall, Kitaro, Enya, Lorenna McKinnitt and a few others. I pick up some local artist discs at thanksgiving festival shows and fairs that hits my fancy. Usually not jazz but I have picked up a couple on recommendation. No Maple Shade discs yet.

    Lorenna McKinnitt.

    Yes, I've recently gotten into her music, I have good collection of Celtic music, Enyas sister Maire Brennan (Clannad) is another good artist in that genre.

    My collection is small but I have several of these artists. I enjoy some Celtic music. May have to try your suggestion. That is how I got unto them myself
    What is the relationship of (Clannad)? Part of her name? Also known as?

    Safety

    If equipment that is using this line cord develops a hard hot to ground short, most circuit breakers will not clear the line in time to prevent rupture of that ground conductor, leaving a hot chassis..

    Also, a wire of that size is incapable of physical stress encountered in everyday use.

    Should a child be electrocuted as a result of the use of a line cord of this design, who is responsible??

    I do not believe a picture of this cord should even be allowed to exist, there will be those out there who will actually try to make something like that, and I fear the consequences.

    If this picture is just a joke, it can be a very dangerous one. If it is real, it is not funny, but it is still dangerous. Thanks to all for pointing safety out..I just don't think you were all vocal enough in stressing that..

    I'm not sure, I first herd Clannad in some movie sound tracks, they do the theme for Patriot Games, and did a song on "Last of the Mohicans". Enya used to be with the band back in the 80's, then went out on her own. Marie Brennan has a solo album and a wonderful remake of Big Yellow Taxi that is (IMO) better then the original Carly Simon version.

    This is no joke. Mapleshade has a hole slew of cables and interconnects like this. And they have been selling them for at least a year so I imagine there are quite a few out there. It is just hard to believe people buy them.

    $270 (plus shipping) for a power strip. And it looks no different from the ones they sell for $6.95 at Home Depot.

    Did you notice those piss ant wires on them? Certainly won't see it on the HD strip.

    Great, thanks. Went to Ireland last year. Besutiful place, was cold, windy, some rain, roads very narrow with stone walls too close and they don't know what iced tea is.
    Of all things, had a waitress who worked in Bangkok know exactely what it was.

    Mapleshade makes some great sounding cables. With their return policy it's a no risk deal.

    The MapleShade sampler( Music Festival) is pretty good...and it's not overly priced. If ya get an ankling you should get it

    Pierre does know how to make some great recordings, no doubt about that. His tweaks are pretty amazing as well.
