John Gallup Posted April 17, 2021 Share Posted April 17, 2021 I asked Richard about this and haven't heard back after a week, whereas he's usually quite responsive. So I thought I'd post the question here to see if anyone else has an idea. The manual for the M5-HPAs has this statement: I thought I'd give it a try, which would allow me to eliminate the battery packs on the AQ Blizzard power cables and reduce some of the visual clutter. When I checked the output voltage from the jacks as described, it was about 2.2 vDC with the amps on and 1.8 vDC in standby. The AQ battery packs in fact produce 72vDC, as implied by the name. Am I missing something? On a related topic, a guy named Gene over at Audioholics.com thinks AQ speaker cables are snake oil. He's says he's an electrical engineer, and has made some measurements that he says support his argument, so it's a bit more than the usual "lamp cord is just as good" stuff.
