Ok, as this is the Accuphase page and the power cord debate, which brand goes nicely with Accuphase gear? It is a question of taste, right? Can we summarize that Wireworld is neutral, Nordost is open, Shunyata is warm?
(this is just to provoke your answers ;-)

I use Shunyata Delta NR on my Accuphase integrated. I tried other brands but prefer the Shunyata. I could see where others might prefer a different brand, however. It comes down to personal taste and other factors such as flexibility and budget.

"flexibility" - does that mean the cable is flexible?
Some of these high-end cables are as stiff as hell and so heavy its difficult to keep them in place

Yes, exactly. Shunyata sells an EF (extra flexibility) series of power cords along side their NR (noise reduction) series.

Has anyone used Synergistic Research power cords and if so what was your experience? This is being suggested to me for use with an E270.

I wonder if there is - like everywhere - a question of quality (precision, soundstage, etc.) and taste (more round, more clear, etc.).
With Wireworld it is obvious, Stratus and Aurora are clear, Electra is more round, Silver Electra is transparent, Platinum Electra I have no idea. And the quality is always a jump forward.
And I have no idea about the other brands (Audioquest, Nordost, Shunyata, Cardas, Chord, etc. etc.).
I am looking for something transparent and clear, like the Silver Electra...
Can somebody help me in the cable jungle?
Otherwise, I stick with Wireworld!

So a bit more background for the group - while having the E270 on loan for an audition my local dealer sent an Isotek EVO3 Premier. I also had an Audience Forte F3, PS Audio Prelude and PS Audio AC3. I initially used the Forte 3 with the Accuphase and though enjoyable I found the slight bass emphasis of the Forte was too much of a good thing in combination with the E270. When I switched to the Isotek there was more of a balanced sound and I made my buying decision based on that combination (but I didn't buy the Isotek). I am now using the Accuphase with the PS Audio AC3 I had on hand. Everything is plugged into a PS Audio Dectet which is connected to the wall with the Forte.

The Accuphase seems to reflect the characteristic of the power cord, so a bit of a struggle to figure out the right option since it isn't possible to hear every cable within the context of my system.

I am also in the market for power cords for C3850 and a pair of A250. I can get Cardas Clear Beyond or Shunyata locally. Shunyata is more expensive. I am a slight bias towards warm sound. Do u think I can get away with Cardas ?

I am not familiar with current Cardas cords. I use Shunyata and have found they out perform Audio Quest, Nordost and other cables in my system.
