Power cables


Can a change of power cables create a ringing known as tinnitus in your ears?

No. But listening to loud music can. As you age, you become more susceptible to hearing damage from high amplitude high frequency sound.
Change in power cables has been known to create poverty, but not tinnitus.
Aging, caffeine, alcohol, loud music - almost anything enjoyable causes tinnitus.

I never heard of this in 40 years!!

Not as much as a nagging (ex) wife. 

I wonder, if a lower distortion level allows you to listen louder without notice, causing ringing, or the cable accentuates a frequency which sets off ringing.

Are you listening at a higher volume, or even listening longer than you previously did because you are enjoying more?

I do agree with John about them causing poverty, and also may add, the loss of a kidney. Good name for cable company, Kidney Cables!

I tend to agree w/ pops.
Hey Waxwizard, maybe you just need to clean out some of that wax!

Ah the miracle of high end power cables.  Somehow six feet of fancy wire can overcome any shortfall created by fifty feet of Romex, and miles of stranded copper from the lowest bidder.  

Magic!
Why would you disparage AudiogoN with such a ridiculous question? Are these forums for audiophiles, or trolls with nothing better to do? What a shame...
Magic! indeed pixel-
No need in acting like an Ass- digidood...
Pixel guy, you're missing the point.  The six feet of the power cable is not the issue.  It's the fact that one is connecting one's component to a power grid, with its noise on the line, fluctuations, and interference from some of your own appliances.  

^^^ No doubt the power coming into the system affect the sound. This is why the sound seems to improve early in the morning and late at night when fewer people and industry are using the grid.However, some of that can be overcome with power cords that use filters, etc.

According to Caelin Gabriel, the "Ah the miracle of high end power cable ..." is actually the BEGINNING and not the end   His how a power cable works explanation is in one of the forums.
