Upgrade AC (Mains) cables are used by many audio/video enthusiasts who recognize the improvements they provide for many components. We urge you to complete a system analysis and speak with a knowledgeable dealer or Straight Wire staff to determine which power cables are most beneficial for your system.

MECHANICAL ISSUES: Low Frequency vibrations (60-240 HZ harmonics) cause noise in the power supplies of many components. The supply can be poorly seated and even with perfect power - create mechanical resonances.

ELECTRICAL ISSUES: Leakages, magnetic field effects and induced noise  based upon how well the power supply is shielded and physically coupled to the chassis. Overall shielding and grounding of the component is quite important.


Do power cords make audible / visible differences on most components? - YES

Do tires of the same speed rating make differences on performance cars - YES

Would you choose the same tire for a light sports car vs. a big sedan - NO

Is their one Power Cable design that will work great on all equipment - NO
