Right angle power cords
01/26/17 at 20:42:07
 
Anyone make high end power cords with an angled connector on the prong side?  There are several on the low-end side on Amazon, but othwerwise?  Anything out there?

If anyone is interested, I contacted Signal cables about a right angle wall connector and they said they can do it.  They will use one made by Wattage for an additional $15.  I've done business with the company before and they do good work.

By the way, can anyone tell me what the technical term for the prong side of a power cable is called?  I know the side that connects to the amp is the IEC connector, but what is the other side called?

FYI

I'm sure that there is a highly technical and scientific name but in every circle that I've ever traveled in they are referred to as the "male" and "female" end.   Smiley

The technical term would be a NEMA 5-15P for the plug end of the cable.
So "plug" it is.   Wink

you can make your own....

http://www.furutech.com/2015/07/21/11446/ <-- these are not cheap....

I did a rather exhaustive search about a month ago... and I didn't come up with much other than DIY.

once upon a time, long ago when I owned several Levinson components... they came with power cords with right angle plugs on the IEC end as their IEC receptacle was on the bottom of the component.

yes when i was making my vhaudio flavor pc, the only angled iec connector i could find were the ones maddog mentioned above.
while they are not as tight as i'd like, they allowed me to make the bends i needed with my csp3 and zp3.
