Mains cable extentions
English

I'm condering buying a mains cable extention for my hifi and TV because when I move the hifi the nearest power point will be 2m away, do you have any experience with either of these:

Mains wires don't affect sound quality.

The second one does 6 and 8 sockets, but may be more than you wish to spend.

Edit. The first one is 6 way....and costs £50 with 2m cord.

RE: Mains cable extentions

I  used the Tacima extension block in my main system in the pass, but found no problem with it. Every thing went into the block apart from my amp, which was direct to the mains. Now using it in a second bedroom system.

That Tacima block strangled the dynamics on my amp and cd player. I prefer to leave it unplugged. However playing my PS2 and TV through it cleaned up the picture quality substantially

Which one there were 2 posted, 1 is sturge protection and the other is Mains conditioner and Radio filter?

I think I will go for the sturge one, if no good I will use for the computer etc.
