For all the hype of the expensive AC cables, it’s amazing what they do NOT list in the properties of the copper they use. OFC is the popular boast, but they don’t mention Ohno Continuous Cast or annealed forging to eliminate grain and the boundaries present in "cold" drawn wire which add noise and distortion. The brand I use to make AC cables offers cable made from these processes. I know I am using better copper than what is used in more expensive, completed cables. If they had grain-free copper in their cables, they would talk about it. Please tell me who does, and at what cost. Use good plugs and Total Contact, which no big company uses, and you have a world-class AC cable for < $1K.
I was fortunate enough to jump off the ever increasing spiral of cable “upgrades” a while back and miss the designer cables not one jot.
All my power cords are home made from cable most people here could only dream about.
Speaker cables are also home brewed from not quite so exotic materials, simple Western Electric copper cabling obtained on eBay.
Interconnects are even simpler cable but still not of a form available commonly on the street.
All in the rca and xlr connectors cost more than the actual cable.
Nice looking braided outer cover also on the cheap on eBay.
My old Weller is working very nicely thank you.
Some advantages of being industrial installation electrician working alongside Siemens and similar ilk.......
I looked at the Transparent, Kimber Kable and Nordost AC lines of cables, and none of these companies say anything except OFC and 99.99999% pure for the .00001% who can easily afford it. Some have silver plating. There's fancy geometry. These are all $2k-5K and more per meter. You'll usually need two meters.
Uber, can you say what you made your power cords out of?
