Remember the whole transfer function deal, cloning the sound of different amps etc using off the shelf cheap parts, wires etc? Either you like the sound that Bob puts out there or you don't and you either try and change the sound with wires etc or buy new equipment. :? :? :?



that is soooooo well said. ditto.

A friend of mine bought a 2013 GT500 Cobra Mustang (the one that goes 200+mph) we took it straight from the showroom floor to the dyno. After building a set of headers and a new H pipe, we picked up 50hp. We made an improvement on a near perfect car, it was fun, its the type of thing I like to do whether its a car or an amp.

Apples n oranges in my book. I'm not sure you'd get any more power out of that amp by changing power cords, maybe a different sound. Improvement? That would be a matter of opinion. I understand the whole "tweaking" thing though, as long as you're having fun and you could always change it back if you don't like it.

Good aftermarket power cords lower the noise floor resulting in more information reaching your ears and because the noise floor is lower, it makes it seem as though your amp is a bit more powerful.

You have to try these things for yourself otherwise you simply don't know.

As I have some Silver High Breed Power cables and IEC sockets, I was thinking about
adding them to my seperate power supplies on my Silver Sevens.

Opinion's please, would it change the resale value, not that think I will ever be selling them.

Replacing 20+ year old oxidized, questionable insulation power cords on just about near anything sounds like a good idea to me.
If you are overly concerned with maintaining 'vintage value' then don't do it.
If you are more interested in improved performance and safety - go for it!

my 1.2 cents.

If you can do it without destroying it or have it professionally done go for it. I have Silver High Breeds on my Lightstar and they improved the already excellent sound. :D
