I owned an AR Complete integrated a while back and was suprised to see the stock power cord was 18 gauge wire. I replaced mine with a simple Belden 14 gauge unit which I installed a hospital grade plug. Did it help the sound? Can't say I noticed a difference but it just didn't seem right to use 11 gauge speaker wire when the unit's AC is supplied through an 18 gauge cord. Many of the so-called high end amps come standard with 18 gauge power cords.
