UK plug terminated audiophile power cords
« on: January 31, 2019, 20:57 »
I've noticed this a while, and recently confirmed it searching everywhere.

There are no UK (Singapore style 3-pin) power plug terminated power cords.

How come?

Thanks in advance.
Daniel

Available from Alpha Audio. I cannot comment on the power cords, but I have used the IC and SC. Good value cables.

Let me ask a related question. Based on government regulations, okay to install uk socket without on off switch?

Not approved. but some friends i know placed a on/off switch beside it, some even got a isolator switch(like those big ones for aircon.)
in local context, switch is necessary to off the power in the event there is a need. there is no audiophile grade switches tat i know of, apparently nobody in the industry manufactures them. simply remove the switch and good clean power comes thru.

yeah why have to be sad? safety got safety way to do it. its all in the mind. some i know still living with stock power cords for the longest time. i am not sad for them, but wasted they have missed so much fun a majority of us have been enjoying. met some retired uncles some time back sharing we are wasting $$$ on cables, plugs whatever snake oil they may seem. the most common comment is 240volt AC is 240 volt AC. no more no less. once they hear the difference...... anyway just enjoy.

You have a link to state clearly that this is not approved?
