    Been around the block (and back) a few times with mains cables, most of the usual suspects, homebrew efforts and now happy and settled with some foo American wires.

    Got a free one from a Dealer, a big enough improvement to make me investigate further up the range with my own hard earned.

    Depending on the rest of the kit, these things can make a real difference imo.

    IME mains cables make a substantial difference. I'm awaiting my trip back to the UK to collect a full Coherent 6D loom of cables, including for the mains.

    One for the mains conditioner.

    One for the power amp.

    One for the DAC.

    And one as a spare, as one day I'll move to monoblocks .
