    Default 2 gang extension lead

    I'm after a 'decent' 2 gang /2 way extension lead but struggling to find anything.

    Simple plug in and plug in is what I'm after so something with 2 good unswitched sockets, good power lead cable and plug.

    It will plug into an unswitched wall socket and then take my tt's power supply and cd player.

    I dont want filter/conditioning or power surge protection.

    Does anyone know of anything or able to make something suitable for purchase ?

    As I say, just needs to be as above and of decent quality as I dont want to be cutting / soldering wires on the amp or cdp for IEC connectors, hard wiring or anything technical like that ....

    Help me please

    I made my own using a two-way extension block purchased off the internet and some good quality screened copper cable with a decent plug. Bit of work but easy enough to do.

    Thanks John,

    I think I need some power cord recommendations too (nothing long 0.5m is ample ..)

    Take a look at MCRU. Sold by the metre I believe.

    Ah ok, no worries. Next time though, the Olsen blocks in particular really deliver on SPPV.
