    If it’s powering a $20,000 Macintosh stereo, I guess all things are relative.

    I once found a guitar amp in the garbage, a Peavey Studio 110. It caught fire at the first gig I played it at.. But it was at the end of it, thank god.

    Not only will your tones be better but those cables will also make your teeth whiter and maintain your septic tank.

    I figured it would be ridiculous but wow.

    I think what the potential buyer REALLY wants to know is how impressed will their “date” be?

    And the answer is probably summed up in this meme:

    Oh no.....


    Oh Yeah!

    Haha. sometimes I have to deal with stuff like this -from doing a balanced AC power system to esoteric components.

    At some point, some people just have money to spend.

    Well...that's nothing compared to the price of the rest of the system. Us guitarists get by pretty easy- our accessories are really cheap compared to many people's hobbies. And we can make money from ours! Can you imagine someone stressing about finally hitting the 'buy it now' button on that, and imagining how much better they are going to sound? Man, that's too much pressure.

    $1749.95.00 sounds about right. Your toan will thank you

    Audioquest is my 'go-to' brand for power cables



    ^^ $49.99...works great with my PS4

    (But sounds like shi.t with my amps. Eh, who knows, maybe that extra $1699.96 makes all the difference )

    I know a guy who was spending $5-10k on power cords. His speakers cost $225,000 a pair.

    For a half million you could construct a modest pole building, erect a stage and furnish it with a 10,000 watt PA and lights and then host live bands for intimate shows/parties.

    For half a million you could construct a modest dam and generating station just to power your personal gear. Locally sourced, free range power is significantly better sounding than factory farmed power. Or at least there's just as much evidence for that as there is for using multi thousand dollar audio cables.

    :P

    Free Range power still has some downsides

    You should see the transformer upgrades some people are will to pay for balanced AC power. I've only been involved with a couple of studios willing to pay for it.

    At the end of the day, the greatest and more cherished recordings were made from slightly cleaned up public grid from coal fired plants and water falling -so I'm not sure anyone other than your narrative on the tour of your place and your wallet will notice much else.

    I say...good for these companies. Separate people from their money, which clearly doesn't mean much to them.

    Makes me think about those "special tone control buttons" for a stereo, that cost a thousand dollars. The "laquer" that was applied to them, cost 200 dollars a bottle.

    For a KNOB.

    oh well.

    I picked up 7 of these cables

    They're CLEARLY superior to your run-of-the-mill Mogami CorePlus or Platinum lines

    The ones with odd serial numbers, though, are markedly better than the ones with even serial numbers, though I should clarify that the odds and evens seem to resonate / play better with different kinds of tonewoods, and the 20 amp cables work better with poly finishes while 15 ampers really let your nitro-finished axes breathe. The 20 ampers are more open, more airy when combined with vintage correct paper-in-oil caps, while the 15s really add some high-end sparkle when combined with NOS 300k Gibson pots. 9/11 was an inside job, and its all part of the Plandemic. Wake up sheeple. Play authentic.
