The power cables I've used in my system are one of the Harmonic Technology power cables (ProAC-11?) which is a little bit thicker than an off the shelf cable, and a BMI Whale Elite which is a monster, where the cable is about as thick as the enlarged IEC connector.
I have a new amplifier (that sits on 2-3 inch spikes) where the cables (power, interconnect, speaker) come out the bottom, from a small cavity in the amplifier.
The spikes on the amplifier provide decent clearance, but it is a tough spot to run cables out of.
I'm looking for a good power cable for this amplifier that ideally has:
1) Not a behemouth female IEC connector -- would almost rather a shorter one. Don't know if this exists in quality.
2) Not a monster guage -- doesn't have to be computer/off-the-shelf thickness, but preferably not too, too much thicker than the Harmonic Technology stuff.
Its an efficient ClassD amplifier. Only uses about 55-60v of power, and outputs 250x2 in 8 and 500x2 in 4.
Because the voltage requirement isn't high, I don't think I'd require a monster gauge in the first place, but would love to hear any suggestions, especially from those people with special flexibility requirements or size requirements for a component.
Would prefer to stay under $500 (used market).
