Who Makes Short Power Cables?

@mark-d is correct. All you really need to do is call your manufacturer. If you are paying, I’m sure they will make them any length you want. :grin:

like these?

Yep just like that

Belden might make short power cables for you. Give them a call or ask @BobBJC .



Ray, whose are these?

Just a generic one from the site whose name I dare not speak (starts with a, ends with s). It’s a 0.5m one which I couldn’t find anywhere else, except really thin generic ones from amazon. Probably gonna get poo-poo’d on here, but frankly I can’t tell any difference from the std ones that came with the M700s. I was just going for a short one…

I think I heard somewhere that cables need a certain length to be effective. Not sure, but maybe good to ask an expert.

Hmm… not sure what you mean by “effective”?

Here’s an example of what @jazznut is referring to. It’s taken straight from the Wireworld web site. The text in bold was highlighted by me.

Wireworld’s shielded power cables are purely dynamic, designed to absorb noise and block interference. Our innovative Fluxfield™ technology with COMPOSILEX® 2 insulation provides surprisingly vivid sound and imaging. Unlike other cords, Wireworld power cables were developed through direct comparisons to battery power, the ultimate in sonic and visual purity. Their elegant plugs feature silver-clad contacts, for the quietest and lowest loss connections available. The five models of Wireworld’s shielded power cables differ in their conductor material, as the smoother current flow of superior conductors provides additional improvements in sound and image quality. The mini power cords use a simpler version of the fluxfield design for low powered components. Since they function as filters, longer lengths provide greater improvements and we recommend two meters or more for the best performance.

I also found a video of someone called Paul McG about speaker cabling min. length…didn’t watch it but post it.

I read some time ago that the power cord from wall to conditioner/generator needs to be longer like 2 meter min. to take full benefits of the cable filter design. But I am not sure if other links need to be longer too.

I was not able to find the article I read unfortunately.

I think this is concept is partially addressed in the standard lengths of Shunyata Research power cables. They use 1.75meters as a base length.

We would…within reason of course. Thanks for the mention!!

Morrow Audio , morrowaudio.com, makes custom cables, which are great, and reasonably priced.
