The MA ones aren't just "power cords", they are shielded and the conductors are twisted and throw off much less RF than normal power cords. I saw a test with an RF meter and romex, standard IEC power cord, bare 14/2 conductors, bare 14/2 inside metal conduit, and Middle Atlantic's "signal safe" power cords. Big difference. Price to match, but hey...you know.

When was the last time you encountered a problem in your system, with interference coming off a power cable? Don't get me wrong, I 'think' I have seen it before. But in 25+ years I have only thought I have seen it a few times (pretty sure it was defective equipment causing it anyway). It is so rare that I would never bother getting anything beyond standard power cables (at the correct gauge for the application).

I do like the red power cords.
I may be schizophrenic, but at least I have each other.

The reviews on this land cruiser are what put me over the edge and made me order it. The 400 W sound system created the tipping point as well.

There is no truth anymore. Only assertions. The internet world has no interest in truth, only vindication for preconceived assumptions.

There are 12 IEC connectors by shape; each has a different name for the Male or Female side. For example, C7 is male and C8 is female, but both have the same shape connector. I use IEC60320 C13 AC Power Cord Short Portable Cable 20cm For Computers LED display Printer Rice cooker Electrical appliances. I always prefer to have from any of the online stores i.e; amazon.com.
