From you other answers, I would be right in assuming that the Sarum T power cable improvement has come along with all the other changes to your deck/power supply already in place eg. Klimax Radikal, Tranquility, Khan etc. ??
I'm sorry Adam - what a dreadful oversight, totally unforgivable :oops:

In short, yes :smt023

But I tried the Sarum Super ARAY before the Tranquility (and before Fraim), and already had Super ARAY cables from Urika to 552 and from 552/PS to 300 as well. The Klimax case requires the smaller connector so it is not possible to use a Powerline with it.

If James and Steve would like me to take the Sarum T power cable and a Powerline along to the October Kabin social to try with James' deck, I would be delighted to do so.


Cheers Chris, thanks for the informative reply .............. :smt023

I would be very interested for you to take your Sarum T power cable along to the October Kabin social if the other lads are ok with it. I'm hoping to get along to the social myself. The only reason I can't be absolutely sure of going along is that it is the weekend immediately prior to my son starting university and I might be required to help him move in. As soon as he gets confirmation of when he can move into his room I will let James and Steve know ........... :smt023

Please remember that Electric 'bites' and bites hard. Also, depending on what you are actually going to do, you may need to get in a registered electrician.

Well my period of caring for Ray's deck will come to a close later today. It's been a blast :smt023

Job done and there is definitely an improvement.

Not huge but there is something there. Plugs and fuses were pretty clean but done anyway.

Dedicated Boxes mounted up to the wall certainly make it much easier to change leads as does a spare socket so if you want to bring your Carlos fandango :lol: leads Chris then we can have a play. I have already had 'that look' from the wife when I told her what they cost :roll: so this may be the first and last time they go in the system.

Nice one James it certainly seems to be the case that Linn boxes don't like gubbins in the power supply but Naim sometimes do. :smt017
I have these in any spare Hi-Fi sockets and blanking covers on all unused phono's etc too. 8) :smt023

They are much better value now that Chord have cut back on the over the top packaging - better for the planet too :smt002 I'll bring the Sarum T power cable and a Naim Powerline :smt023

It seems 'that look' is more common than I realised!
