    Surely the PSU in a well designed amp will clean up any anomalies in the leccy it receives?

    Probably a numpty question.

    I agree. They definitely work. My system won't switch on without mains cables in place. And I do notice differences between cables, some are thicker that others, some have nice braided covers, some are various colours, some cost lots and lots.
