IEC install Carver SD/A-390t inspired by MRHP

MRHP recently installed a IEC on his SD/A-490t and with some tips from him I did my SD/A-390t today. My new power cord didn't arrive yet so I'll be using a extra PC cable untill it gets here. I post the sonic results when I get the new cable. Here is a pic.

No problem as long as I can shipping collect? with prepaid return shipping. Remember they weigh 145lbs each mono block.

If I get my arse in gear, I just might have them done by the new year :-& :-& :-&

So, what power cord did you buy?
Political Correctness...defined

A doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.



In a recent press conference, President Obama remarked, "If I had a city, it would look just like Detroit."

I ordered another Silver High Breed Epitome cable but what I will probably do is take the Shunyata Venom 3 I have off my preamp put it on my cd player and put the Silver High Breed on the preamp.
