  1. Indeed, the stereo system is the most noisiest source in the listening room where each component’s power supply emits RFI and EMI. Thus the best power cables should be used for feeding these components with the purified current from a power regenerator. Even better: chose components with external power supplies allowing to place the noisy power supplies and the power cords as far as possible from the audio circuits. And even better: battery supplies whenever it is possible. My turntable’s motor got a battery supply as my phono preamp and my LAN-switch. My preamp is passive with TVC. And my DAC and my Streamer both have an external power supply. A better power cable for feeding my P10 didn’t improve anything.

  2. I used to design sensitive laboratory equipment, and I can say, categorically that cables do make a difference. I found that if the cable isn’t long enough, the equipment wont work! Seriously though, I can hear absolutely no difference between the Lapp cable I use for all my gear, and the £500 one I was loaned to compare. Viva Lapp.
