I also appreciate that. I never thought that a power cord upgrade would make an audible difference, but now in the future (far future as I have several things to upgrade before power cords) I will consider "auditioning" power cords to see I can hear a difference. The problem is that I too would have a problem with dropping 300 dollars on a simple cord.

joema, every fool knows you have to wax your car before you feel any measurable improvement in performance from cleaning the interior.

Hey player8, fear not. For less than $300 I got three cords. A 6' for the receiver, a 5' for the DVD player, and a 20' for the subwoofer. If you were to just buy a simple 3' cord for your receiver it would run you about $66 to your door.

There was a guy here a year or so ago who had a background in psychology. He spoke very well about the flaws of double blind testing. He obviously had an extensive knowledge of scientific testing/experiments, in particular, ones that involve humans. I wish I could remember his name and/or find his posts.

Anybody have any links to frequency response graphs for power cords? That would be interesting to see.

That would be interesting. I thought the benefit of double-blind was removing the psychology and human element.

Please post a link if you find one.

Have you thought about a power line conditioner? I've heard sales pitches about how it improves video quality, especially HDTV.
