I got to thinking, as a follow-up to the thread on Power cords for Levinson, that I needed to rethink the whole power cord thing entirely.
The first was the Levinson 390S player. I removed the JPS Digital cord and substituted a 14 guage cord. The sound was, well, identical to the JPS#QUOTE#s. Next was the little HIRAKAWA 18guage cord. Immediate reactions were "deeper soundstage" "smoother response" "more detail at the back of the soundstage" "Janice is more real-sounding" "better dynamic attack and decay" "less sibalence". You get the picture. Levinson apparently does not appreciate filtering on its power cords.
What does all this mean? Well, it seems to me that it means that power cords DO make a difference. It is just that you can pay good money to get much LESS performance than stock! In the future, before I lay out money for a trick cord, I am going to check all the outlets for OEM cables, from the people that actually have to back-up the performance of their stuff with real tests. That would be Belden, Hirakawa, Eupin etc. Don#QUOTE#t get me wrong here; there are plenty of honest products out there that do truly address the needs of audio equipment. But I would still check all the low-dollor stuff for matching first, before going to the high-dollor stuff. Live and learn.

I have used Shunyata Powersnake Cobra ver.2, Viper ver.2, Straightwire Blue Thunder, PS Audio Lab Cable and Kimber Palladium and PK-10 Gold. Somehow still prefers the stock Pass Lab powercord that came with it. There#QUOTE#s no denying the smoothness of ease that aftermarket powercords can introduce into a system. But in the time I spent with each of these expensive powercords, I have always felt something not right about the way they (especially the powersnakes) reduce high-frequency extension at the top end and blurred musical transients, which led me at one stage to go "back to basics". Wouldn#QUOTE#t you believe it, all that I lost was restored right after putting back the humble powercord supplied by Pass Lab. I found that in comparison with the stock powercord, the Powersnakes had robbed some air, dimension and openness from the music. All the other brands of PCs altered the instrument/voices#QUOTE# timre to varying degress, which makes the system differs from neutrality. So the important thing here as always is, while most changes sound refreshing, not all may be more truthful. Some improvements may have side effects. We should be aware of the adverse side effects that come with some products.
Recently I have started to use the powercord made by HIRAKAWA-Corporation. Shortened to 1 metre length, original plugs replaced, the cord is plugged directly to the walls with no 13amp fuses. This run on dedicated AC power-lines for analog only. That#QUOTE#s another step forward in neutrality and transparency!

Remove the Blue Thunder powercord and revert back to the Sony stock powercord made by Hirakawa-corp may make you change your mind and play digital more often. I had this Straightwire powercord for a while, which I bought without prior listen, based on the strength of the Straightwire Crescendo grade cables I use throughout my system. No dice man, you win some, but you lose some in return. In the end, the stock Sony cord is the one that allows the SCD-1 to perform to its best potential.
I must say that these days, between my SCD-1 and the X350 poweramp is a place that I park my warped LPs to prevent RF interferences the two components while the digital player is playing.
Review: Hirakawa Power cord
Budget esoterica magazine
Domo arigato Mr. Hirakawa , for building us a power cord that makes are music sound like it ought too. Domo arigato.
This is the supplement issue to the June 2011 issue of budget esoterica review magazine. Today i will be reviewing the Hirakwa power cord. Unfortunately they are no longer available from that source.
Fit and finish is excellent and awe inspiring for such an inexpensive power cord. I will be reviewing the power cord in context with the sony playstation one SCPH-1001 as part of what i would like to call "sony playstation one performance package #1.
The sony playstation performance package consists of three items.;
Hirakawa power cord
I reviewed the performance package with my budget esoterica review equipment which is listed on the bottom of the review. I would like to share with you a few music selections to help you get a greater idea of the benefits of this power cord that i recommend for digital use only.
I listened to eric dolphy, outward bound, track six and i heard round sounding horns, very good tone and a solid , forward sounding trumpet. The sound was very clean with good piano weight, clean drums and bass. I noticed a nearly seamless sound. There was a glassy sound with a slight silvery sheen to cymbals, followed by good decay.
I have a cd by the bob smith radio band titled ,"radio face." On the third track i could hear a rich piano and clean triangles that tickle the ear. The pace and timing was very good. The music was smooth with a well defined solid and tight bass. The highs were clean and crisp and i noticed light to moderate depth on this recording.
I recently purchased the men at work , cargo cd and i am kicking myself for not purchasing it when it originally came out. I love the whole cd. The track that caught my attention is titled , "settle down my boy." This is a very fun song that has a thick guitar, tuneful bass, and very good vocal clarity. I noticed a thick and meaty big sound. The sax was round and juicy and had good detail.
My last pick was the cars cd with no title. I'm in touch with your world, has a very clean sound with good vocal tone. The sound affects are smooth and accurate sounding. There is good sound stage width, pristine highs and a natural and clean bass. The sound was basically linear.
increases clarity and clearness
hospital grade ac plug
pure and forward mid range
long length allows easy placement options
Lacking a little tonal color
If you can find a hirakawa power cord, i highly recommend it for digital use. It lets the music pass through relatively unscathed and i find that to be very delightful

Yes, the stock power cord made by Hirakawa is better than the exotic and expensive 'audiophile' power cables available commercially. I have tried but cannot get any cables from Hirakawa (via their local regional sales office) as they sell their products only to equipment manufacturers/OEM.
