    i've replaced the cords on two of my components;


    ELAC MIRACORD 46 (197?)






    i slipped three large ferrite beads, gleaned from old computers, on the new power cable before installation.
    i also replaced the RCAs, as those were rather skimpy and corroded...

    i was advised to remove the foam that you see in that internal shot,
    so it's no longer there. the power cable is a grounded IEC,
    with the ground lead running to earth on a sandwich of steel washers mounted
    in the center rear (does this really make a difference?)

    i don't know exactly how much these upgrades
    improve performance, if at all, but i DO know
    that both of these beauties sound DAMNED GOOD...

    well, if done properly, they are safer and get rid of any circulating 60 cycle 'hum' caused by it.
