Past Event: How Power Cords Affect Audio Component Performance
October 17, 2017 at 7:00 pm
Location: Institute of Audio Research, 64 University Pl. btwn 10th & 11th.
Speaker(s): Michael D. Griffin, Essential Sound Products, Inc. - Rochester, MI, USA
A widely held paradigm among many in the pro-audio community and beyond is that power cords cannot possibly affect audio component performance. In this session we will review fundamentals of audio component power supply performance and various data that supports the conclusion, “how could changing the design of the power cord not affect audio component performance?” Further, we’ll discuss our approach to power cable design to optimize audio component performance.
