    not a good idea to draw a lot of current through one of these with the cable in the reel.

    Its just not a good idea. you can get hot spots in the coil caused by magnetics etc. especially if there is a bad bit of insulation inside that you both cant see or feel. also you should use the shortest cable of right grade for job as there can be a significant voltage drop over long runs.
    Not saying you will have a problem, but its bad practice

    The voltage drop would be a good thing my mains runs at around 246V according to the mains regen unit.

    Anyway I remain unconcerned especially since I will disconnect the telly from the mains regen today.

    New invader just arrived.

    All plugged in to the system now and I am in evaluation mode.

    I had to try it given my contentment with the Luxman M-800A.

    This is the matching C-800F.
