Mains - Cable Belden 83803 or FURUTECH FP-314AG?

    I intend to make up two new power cables for my amps and spotted these 2 cables are similarly priced, so there is my dilemma. I know the Belden is very good, but have no knowledge of the Furutech. I will be recycling my Toughplug and Wattgate IEC from my current homemade cables.

    Has anyone compared the above 2 cables?

    Making two cables. Why not make one cable from each then you can tell us how different they are?

    I note a degree of sarcasm here sir! :) However I suppose I could advise if one channel sounded better than the other. :rolleyes:

    I think you will get a wider soundstage for your hi fi and and it will turn your old standard format TV into a widescreen version.

    Belden 83803 is a nightmare to work with without the correct tools and terminations as it's an installation type cable. I cringe seeing plugs attached to it.

    19364 is a suitable overkill alternative.

    Have already made a cable for my Airlink transformer using 83803, found it not too bad providing you take the time to cut and dress the cores to the correct lengths. I agree that even with a toughplug you have no way of actually clamping the cable, but providing you secure the cores tightly and are not in the habit of regularly unplugging from the mains, I don't see it as a problem.
