If the earth was flat, house cats would have pushed everything over the edge by now.

I am always amazed how often people invoke insurance companies not paying, based on what?  My guess is guess work.

Since I'm a bad person I'll say it. If audiophile power cords played a role in eliminating audiophiles, would we be worse off?

WRT house cats, I'm using that line  ;D ;D ;D          -F

From reading several posts in the link in the first post, I have to ask, when did UL become music critics and decide to regulate power chords???

I've seen more than one guitar amp catch on fire, those power chords are nothing to be messed with.  ;D

I'd rather that audiophile products be banned from sale, those people are just far too gullible.
