ac power and my bdt-300 bluray player
English

hi guys , i have a question for the more enlightened than I... I have a bluray player and a ac few cables ,my question is  ,isit better to use the best ac power chord i have on the bluray player? as im using both HDMI outs ,1 to the hdtv and the othe to the audio in on my av amp. im thinking the picture quality will improve and the dynamics in sound will improve . Is this a better way to go rather than use the best ac chord into my amp where sound i the only thing to really benifet , hooking the bluray player allows me to feed better power to it and then send a better audio signal to my reciever and better picture to my HDTV...im using ok ac on all my equipment ,just that the eichmann ac express is the best of them all.

hope this makes sense to someone as i would rather have a increased picture and imagine audio as well than just audio alone.

regards

bass-boy

1) A different AC power cord won't make any difference.

2) Using both HDMIs also won't make a difference. You can use just 1 HDMI to send both audio & video to the AV receiver. 

Just keep it simple for the best possible performance.

Ok, for 3D that's the only way as 1900 is not 3D compatible.

RE: ac power and my bdt-300 bluray player

hi bass boy,have you noticed any diffrence when swapping you cables on your blueray player.have you tryed experiment with changing the power chords over,if you look at russ andrews web site people that had bought he's  power chords that say ,not only does it improve the sound but also the picture when upgrading to a better power chord.my best advice is to experiment for  yourself as you will get mixed reviews with cables ,some will say cables make no diffrence,and some will say ,it's night and day diffrence.david

Correction: it's not a review, but a ruling by Advertising Standards Authority.

By all means, demo it for yourself, but make sure you're backed up by a decent returns policy.

RE: ac power and my bdt-300 bluray player

hi there and thanks for the response , yes i have tried swapping the cables over just recently and yes there is an obvious inprovement with using the eichmann cable over the custom made cable i bought to suit . i noticed better contrast levels and better percieved color...also think the sound has more weight as well , my sub sounds much tighter with depth after watching adele and andrea bocelli...

 

thanks
