It's not the power cord gauge that's the issue the conditioner simply can't provide your amp with sufficient power/current. Keep the amp plugged into the wall and use the conditioner for your other components.

The power cable , did not have anything to do, with the probleme, I have encounter with the power conditioner. The power conditioner was simply defective.
But ,l have learn, from cables manufecturer ´´ Bis Audio ´´ that the guage do not have anything to do with the quality of a power cord.
The quality comes mostly from the material (alloys)that is used to build the cable.
I tought the 8 awg was better than 12 awg , but I was wrong.
that’s it ,that’s all
l will wait to get my new ( or refurbiched ) APC 15 power conditioner, to ask the company’s technician about the my 8 awg cord.
When ,I contacted them , In the begining, I have never mentionned that.I tought ,they could say it was my fault, and refuse to honor their waranty.
Until I have their answer, my MC 8207 will be connected in the wall socket.
l will write their answer here.
There is no probleme with APC H15 Power Conditioner.
There is no probleme with a low guage power cord.
The way l understand it now is that I have made a mistake when l have connected those two togheter. Both devices were ´´ on ´´.
l was just too exited when I received the power cord and wanted to connect them to quickly.
Hight power amp. Plus a low guage cord do the rest.
I have connected the new unit l have received as a replacement.
Turn everything ´´off ´´ in the first place and then , turn everything ´´ on ´´ and the APC H15 just works fine.
This is ´´experience ´´ that is coming in.
