    New power cord

    Hello again everybody,

    Im, kind of in the process of upgrading my system and ive been thinking about upgrading my power amplifiers power cord, i just got new speakers about a month ago and new speaker cables and i thought why not get a new power cable, but im not sure what i should get, My budget would be $150 or less, i found a half decent one on audioadvisor for only $60. Here is the link

    Pangea Audio - AC-9 - Power Cable-Audio Advisor

    I need one that will fit in a small space between my power amplifier and the wall as it will be about 2-4 inches away.

    I happen to have two of the AC-9's and they are huge cables and not very flexible. Considering your space constraints the AC-9's would give you fits.

    Check out the various offerings from music direct.

    Ok then the ac-9 wont be a pick anymore,
    i checked out that one it looks pretty nice and built well,

    here is a few of my choices right now:

    MUSICDIRECT - CARDAS - TWINLINK AC 1.5M

    MUSICDIRECT - NORDOST - MAGUS POWER CABLE 2.0M

    MUSICDIRECT - PS AUDIO - JEWEL AC 2.0M 15AMP

    Music Direct - SHUNYATA - VENOM 3 POWER CABLE

    Hopefully i get everybodys feedback and help me choose a good power cable for my amp, I also hope i find a cable that doesnt fit to loose in the back of my amplifier.

    Blackraven: I checked out that cord and it seems to be pretty nice, im just wondering what type of connector end would fit the best in my amp, I havea Rotel RB 1080.


    I cant order anything from that website cause im in canada, but from the other cords i have choose what one would be the best for my amplifier

    The Zu Audio Birth power cord is a good one in your budget range.

    There are lots of posts on other audio forums regarding the hospital grade "Quail Electronics" power cord. It is a high quality cord with impressive looks for less than $20. It is also sold under the name "Iron Lung Jellyfish" and with that tag it commands a much higher price.

    Okay, someone has to say this and it may as well be me . . . ahem . . . buying an aftermarket power cable will not make any difference in the sound. It will look cool, but, that's about it.
