I NEED TO GET WIRED: Electrical Connection Advice
I'd like some help on getting a Power Strip/Surge Protector to plug my gear into. I can't afford a Power/Voltage Conditioner type unit. So, I need the next best thing. Another reason is Convenience. Keep everything plugged into 1 unit. Instead of cords going here and there to a few different outlets.
I'd also like to change the power cords out too. The stock ones are generic for the most part. Serviceable, yes. But I might as well go a bit further in having all of my components have a better than stock power cables and connectors too. That way I can make them Custom Lengths. So that all of the power cords are not laying everywhere like a Drunk Octopus. But in neat orderly lines to the PS.
I do not need Exotic, Pricey, or Highly Reviewed Power Cables. As I don't have that kind of gear or budget. Just stuff that would work well.
I would like to buy the power cable in bulk. So I can create the lengths that I need.
As for the plugs, I would buy those with the cable. I would like them(cable) to be insulated as to not create upon each other. Some kind of interference? between them, if that's something to worry about. As my components won't all be the same distance from the power source. And they won't be in a rack. But on custom Cherry Wood platforms. That will sit on the floor. All made by a local furniture making shop. That had lots of leftover thick boards from building tables. So the power cables for my gear are going to get custom lengths. We get cables "to order", or DIY to length. Just the right length of speaker cable from speaker to power source. The same will be for my components to the power strip. As they all won't be the same distance from the source.
I don't have a budget because I know nothing about the subject at hand. But, if Hard Pressed, I'd say $250ish?
If anyone can post some DIY links. Articles, How-to's, Others post, Advice,etc. All would be welcome.
