Re: Mains leads and Power block?
FrankHarveyHiFi: I've answered plenty of your questions in this thread when asked, unlike some.


 I've only asked you two questions and you didn't answer either of them properly. In particular, you didn't answer the question on (your) specific products - proving my suggestion as to why other retailers might not want to.


 
FrankHarveyHiFi:I always seem to get drawn into these sorts of discussions from a certain retailer's customers


Yes you do, because you start the argument and make it personal with your bizarre fixation Wink 


 
FrankHarveyHiFi: The last one was pointless, but he was intelligent enough to know that I wouldn't back down, and used that to draw me out. Unfortunately, you're not up to his standard. Farewell to this thread.


Sorry to disappoint you, devastated obviously Smile Au revoir Wink

RE: Mains Cable Upgrade

Hi Guys

I have the following equipment:

Yamaha RXV-1900 Receiver

Epos M Subwoofer

Sony KDL-40HX723 TV

Sony BDPS-790 Blu-Ray Player

Sony Playstation 4

Soon to buy the Sony HAP-Z1ES Music Server £2000

Pro-Ject Xpression Mk3 Turntable

Now i want to upgrade the mains cables on the AV amp, Subwoofer and TV mainly, so do i just buy Clearer Audio or Merlin cables or buy a 6 way conditioner etc etc. I know alot about interconnects and i use QED Reference \ Signature cables however i know jack when it comes to mains cables so i appreciate any advice.

 

Regards

Paul Carver

RE: Mains leads and Power block?

This is an old thread; however if you do a search on WHF you will find many later threads on the subject.

To answer your question; unless they are damaged, stick with the cables you have as changing them will make absolutely no difference to the sound.

An anti-surge block is always good for reducing spikes, and a good quality 6 way one can be picked up for about £20, however if you pay more you will usually get a warrantee so that if the unit fails to protect your equipment you will be compensated for it. (Up to a limit)

If you still wish to change cables, make sure you get them on a sale or return basis, as that way you can get a full refund when you find they make no difference.

Hope this helps

Bill
