If a power cord is doing that, you have the weirdest and worst equipment in the world.

I design power supplies for a living, among other things. How many have you designed? If you're going to make bizarre, inexplicable claims, the proof is up to you.

In fact power cables can't affect sound quality.

I think you've found a rewarding hobby. Be sure to show measurements.

@sqml extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.
Your "anecdotal evidence" is very much the opposite of extraordinary.

I should've been more clear. I never meant this to be "anecdotal evidence", its just my experience and opinion on this subject. So who actually did a/b listening test and whats your conclusion?

Why would anyone need to bother to do a listening test when there can't be a difference? You would just get a list of imagined differences!

Why can't you do the test? You seem to be sure you will find differences. That would put all of us boffins in our place.

If you offer data that supports your claims, trust me, you will be breaking ground in electronic theory and design.

Assume I said that magic pixies dancing inside my amp was why it sounded better. Then I demanded somebody else needs to prove it.
