+1 .... don't feed the trolls = Nailed it!!
to the mods: please adopt the same measures that many of the other audio forums have already adopted: Delete these type of troll posts (especially the stupid cable slams) along with the warning that transgressors will be kicked out and banned ...... full stop.
@Sallyoil, just ignore that thread. No one can predict with any kind of certainty which of the suggestions that have been made in your own thread on your power socket question would be the best choice. And I'm very doubtful that you would be going wrong with any of them. Also, if you Google "UK power outlet strips" you’ll probably find many additional choices.
Whatever value the "Cable Snake Oil Antidote" thread may provide has little if any relevance to your application or to your stated budget. Your question was in fact a simple one, as you initially presumed.
And welcome to Audiogon!
I actually by a stroke of fate has the exact same problem today. The solution? Well, folks there is no way I’m going to spend big bucks for an audiophile power strip. And I refuse to use cheap Office Depot power strips. The solution is to buy a two or three plug adaptor that goes into the wall outlet. Problem solved. Two bucks. Thank you very much.
welcome to the Audiogon forum. I hope you find it entertaining and educational, as I have. Like any forum there is good and bad. Two bits of advice, if I may. First, almarg is a trustworthy source of information. His opinion is based in science and experience and he is a practical and sensible contributor. Search his responses for answers to your questions. Second, trust your ears. Experimentation is the lifeblood of any hobby and if you buy used and sell what you don’t like you waste very little money and only you know what sounds good to you. Believe that what you hear is real. That’s all that matters. Searching for the striped unicorn zebra is an endless quest in audio. Enjoy the journey. Welcome.
