Custom Power Cord Company

I was considering purchasing a few power cords from "Custom Power Cord Company," (CPCC) and was wondering if anyone has either suggestions or comments which could guide me.


Paul, I stopped using a CPCC Top Gun Super Power Block line conditioner some time ago, but it's a decent product. That said, I should give a disclaimer that I'm a dealer for Creative Cable Concepts, a company founded by a former associate of CPCC who also had a lot to do with the voicing and building of CPCC products before he took things to a higher performance level and doesn't see the need to make the cords as stiff.
Hi Paul I have experience with CPC's line of shielded & integral-filtered AC cords. These are designed for use direct-to-line with no added line conditoner. I first had the fairly popular Model 11; a nice fullbodied cord for not a lot of money, a bit lacking in detail & resolution however. Worked well on a McCormack DNA1 amp.
I was driving that amp with a McCormack TLC1Deluxe pre. The Model 11 sounded good on that pre, although it is considerably transparent & I felt it had more to offer. So I tried the Custom Power Top Gun, a source-component cord. That did a better job, although hf detail was still a bit lacking I thought. I talked with David Blair the designer, who made me a custom cord with reduced filtering; you'll see one of these around from time-to-time; called the Top Gun Special. That worked better; nice full-bodied & warm yet still plenty detailed.
When the Top Gun HCFI came out I ordered one for the amp, which I'd since upgraded to a McCormack DNA1 Deluxe. The HCFI worked very nicely on that amp as well as on other mosfet amps such as Perreaux. I still have both of those cords on hand in my collection, although I've since changed equipment again which required different voicing.
I used 2 for monoblocks---plugged into an AM Stealth. It was like my CJ 5's were on steroids.--(And refused testing;as per their attorney) I also have the 4-input power block;and that ain't chopped liver (for front end devices)--for the money. They just work well in tandem.
My only complaint of my Model 11's was they were so stiff, I had to bend them sufficiently so they would not pop off my Quicksilver Monoblocks IEC.
Hello. I am interested in selling a TOP GUN custom power cord that I purchased in a lot of other equipment (the other stuff had nothing to do with audio, don't know why it was even in there) it's a 3 foot cable, and it is quite large. I have no idea what it's worth. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
