As the king of car analogies, I must say some people drive around just fine with the stock batteries that came with their cars. Those that tweak their rides or go offroad know the value of a quality aftermarket battery. Likewise, a good set of heavy duty, super insulated plug leads can make a world of differrence. Others drive along just fine oblivious to these subtle enhancements.

BTW, I do own interconnects that retail at $1400/meter, and power cords that retail at $1500 (OK, so I got a good deal). They work too. An upgraded power cord in particular is critical for the 950. It doesn't have to be an expensive one (the one I use for the 950 cost me $50) but the right cord can greatly enhance the musical ability of the unit.

What power cord did you upgrade to on the 950 and where can you get one? Thanks, Kevin

If you reread this entire thread a little more carefully, you'll see that every response that was made after the post you just quoted is really a good bit of sarcasm. Most people in the saloon tend to believe that changing 6 feet of power cable between your 950 and the wall is not really going to change anything about your system.

If you are still interested in "high-end" power cables, check your local hi-fi store. There are plenty out there seeking your hard earned money. Here's one example:

and here's another:

Thanks for the advice, but I did read the thread quite carefully. I feel personally that if a person thinks that a cable, be it power or interconnect, can make a difference in their system, that is for them to decide. I was simply asking what cable dybbuk chose to replace his stock cable with.

I've got the monster hts-5100, and it works great. They definately work. I paid $699 for mine, and i think it is well worth it. It does improve the sound, as well as the video clarity.

Anyone have an opinion of the (custom) VansEvers altered power strips? See:

http://www.vansevers.com/

for his "home-theater" device.

Here's another surge protector/line conditioner that seems different. It doesn't use MOVs and it's literature is very convincing. Anyone have an opinion on:

www.pricewheeler.com

They make an audio "brick wall" device for $249 that looks promising.

you would be nuts to not protect your equipment with something, but make sure it can handle everything you plan on connecting. speaking of funny, i like those companies that sell a $3000 power cord, now that is funny. i am partial to good quality (not outrageous) cabling, but NOT FOR SPENDING MORE THAN A COMPONENT on a stupid power cord.

Any truth to the notion that a power amp will be restricted to its performance if hooked up to a surge protector? I have my 770 and by sub's amp hooked up to separate surge protectors to "protect" the auto on circuits. Good idea or bad?
