    @lightman1 you got a source for these cables? I'm interested in upgrading my TV power cord.
    | Front - Dynaudio Emit M20 | Center - N/A | Rear - Polk Monitor 4 | Sub - N/A |
    | AVR - Yamaha Aventage RX-A1020 | Preamp - Dared MC-7P | Amp - B&K Reference 4420 |
    | Turntable - Yamaha PX-3 | Cartridge - Dynavector DV-20X2H | Digital Source - AURALiC Aries Mini |
    | TV - LG 60" 4K | Gaming - Xbox One - PS3 - New 3DS XL - Nvidia Shield TV |

    This body holding me reminds me of my own mortality
    Embrace this moment, remember, we are eternal
    All this pain is an illusion

    Nightfall, I dug them up off the city's power grid. Saved me a bundle. ;)

    Looks good for about 100w... I recommend doubling up.

    Wow! Just the thought of terminating that gives me nightmares.....

    Use a high quality IEC for best results.

    Burn the rubber off, scrap the copper. That's what I used to do. A shopping cart works great, go steal one. Rubber falls through, leaving the copper in the cart. Just a tip from your uncle Tony.

    No reinvention needed. Wally World carries 'em...

    They would need to be wrapped in fine Corinithian Leather with a piece of hardwood, say oak covering the saddle so all that coddles your cables is fine materials and is WAF acceptable.

    That would make a heck of a tone arm cable mike.

    First thing I thought of too when I saw the colors.

    The white stuff in the middle has a peculiar resemblance to something you might see from Patrick82 from Coo-Coonut Audio...

    Maybe one of his creations?

    That first sentence is ripe for the picking @ken brydson. Have at it! :D
