  1. whats with the detachable power cords ? do they have an advantage or disadvantage ?
    should i replace the oem detachable power cord on my denon amp and get a better power distribution block to lower the impedance ?
    thanks !

      1. Today I got a heavy duty 12GA 2′ extension with 3 outlets on it and plugged it into the wall. (Amazon link below) Nice bit of kit – super firm sockets, I really had to apply a bit of muscle to get the plugs into it. Yep, system sounds MUCH better. This replaced a ONEAC CB1120 isolation transformer and an Adcom ACE-515 AC Enhancer which I bought to manage turn-on turn-off timings to prevent thumps, and it did do that. I manage that aspect manually now. The Adcom has 1mH inductors on each AC line! Yuck.

        Next investment is to install a dedicated line and a new breaker in the breaker panel. I’ll keep my eyes peeled for an AC regenerator… But as of now, my system has come to life – the entire spectrum is better and imaging has improved a ton. Who would have thought!

        Thanks for helping me make my system sound better!
