Re: [ARSCLIST] Cables- was Can 78s sound better than LPs?

----- it is all about the reproduction of transients, without smearing. I
have precisely the opposite need in my office wiring system - single phase.
My fuse is an electromagnetic trip fuse. Whenever I switch on my analog
office copier the fuse blows. This means that I have to switch off all
printers, several computers (except the one on a UPS) in order to be able to
switch the fuse back on and then try to hit a zero crossing in the voltage
the copier (mind you, this is easier than in the US, because we have only 50
Hz). Then, after a few attempts I can switch life in the office back on,
by item. This quickly became intolerable, and I took a 100' extension cord,
hefty grade, to supply the copier. Obviously I did not want a tremendous
voltage drop during normal operation, so I had to use heavy gauge. While the
resistance is low, the impedance of the coiled up extension cord is
sufficient to smear the inrush current transient, and everybody is happy.
