While I have read numerous threads on Power Cords, the one thing that’s always bugged me, and is rarely mentioned, is the unworkable stiffness in most high-end products. And the thicker they are the worse it becomes. It’s hard enough trying to navigate the numerous cables that reside behind most equipment stands, and the inflexible Power Cords just make it worse. Case in point would be the Furutech DSP-4.1 cable. Highly rated, very pricey, and horrible to work with. Same with last GutWire cable I purchased. But I have finally found the answer to my dilemma in the Ultimate Power Cord by Puritan, out of the U.K. Rated to handle up to 40 amps (maybe a stretch by the local codes) and as limp as a wet dish towel. Beautiful. I won’t bore you with specs as anyone interested can just google Puritan Audio. Now the second part of my story. I always try to buy local, but I won’t pay for the privilege. I also don’t try to play one retailer off against another. I hated that when I owned a business. I will ask a store for their best price and let them know I won’t be back for a second go round. In this case I have a retailer just 15 minutes from my house who carries the Puritan line. They quoted a price and said they would have to order the cables (3) in for me. That’s no stocked inventory, just a flow through transaction. I then emailed a retailer in the U.K. Stuart Mackenzie of Mackenzie Hi-Fi. Stuart answered my email at just past midnight his time. You have to love dealing with the owner of a business. Long story short, he was extremely helpful and saved me $560. The three cables were on my doorstep 10 days later. It’s a global market and sometimes you find a good guy with good service. When that happens, I like to give them a little promotion.
