@benzman - I forgot to mention in my post above that "generally speaking" good power cables tend to make more of an audible difference on less expensive gear - like source components.
- This is mainly due to the fact that high end gear will have a more substantial power supply and as such will require the very best power cable in order to makew an noticeable improvement
- whereas more affordable components tend to have a more budget oriented power supply, so augmenting them with a good power cable can make a significant improvement
My source components have the very best power cables, with solid silver wires, whereas my amp/distribution panel power cables has UP-OCC copper wire.
