    I assume customers in Michigan have the privilege of adding sales tax.

    I've already asked Tom Bowlus for a review in Bass Gear Magazine.

    All that fancy "this wiring is superior to that old extension lead you're using"....

    but you've not replaced any of the phases of incoming mains to the building... all you've changed is the 9ft before your amp... just think how much better it would sound if you replaced the whole national grid! and it'd only cost you penies, for the awesome difference in tone you'd get!

    Is this how DRB is staying a float?:bag:
     
  6. I think you'll need backups as well if any of them would fail. Like one backup for each one.

    Honestly, how these things can make a difference in tone is beyond my imagination.
     
  7. Actually, imagination plays a pretty large role in the whole thing! :smug:

    You are looking at the wrong one; the Pro version is a lot cheaper, $150. They are even endorsed by Victor Wooten. "ESSENTIAL SOUND PRODUCTS' CORDS ARE INCREDIBLE. I'VE NEVER SEEN MORE CARE AND ATTENTION PUT INTO A POWER CORD. AND YOU CAN DEFINITELY HEAR THE DIFFERENCE." Victor Wooten
    My guess is the difference will be more apparent with SMPS amps.
     
  9. Haha so true!

    well, by definition, 'incredible' does mean unbelievable, so maybe he did say that.
     
  11. It's possible that Vic called it incredible, but probably more in a sentence like this:
    "It's incredible how people think that this stuff makes a difference"





    ;)

    You couldn't provide their contact information? I have some woven cloth-covered rubber feet for them to put under their music stands that will make everything they play sound like angels singing!

    Quantity discounts available.
     
  15. don't forget to save some cash for those little chairs that the stereo guys use to keep the speaker wires off the floor

    Maybe Victor should endorse these too.

    yeah, i'm sure with their markup all you'd have to do is sell a couple a week and you could retire early!
     
  19. we have some pretty impressive kettle leads selling for £1200 over here for true audiophiles, that offer aastonishing improvements in response and clarity, yet still the real issue of dirty electricity and corroded wires spanning miles of damp countryside have never been really addressed.
    A fool and their money.....
