View Full Version : Isotek mini sub mains leads
14-10-2003, 09:49 PM
I have an Isotek mini-sub. As you know this comes without a supplied mains lead. I am going to connect a Pioneer PDP 434HDE, Sky+ box, media receiver and Pioner 2011. I have bought the Isotek mains cable but on delivery I noticed it was rated at 16amps. As the Mini-sub outputs a maximum of 10 amps to a socket is this overkill. The company does a 10 amp rated lead also. Should I have got this but more importantly will the 16amp cable cause any problems / excessive power delivery or even blow up the plasma. Any thoughts??

Keep the 16a lead, it will not degrade things in any way-quite the opposite in fact. Look on it as having a a car with a more powerful engine than you need-never under strain. The 16a lead will probably be of better quality too.
welcome to the forums :)~:-)~:smile:

Welcome to AV Talk robertt.
I'd echo mariner's advice, stick with the 16amp cable :thumbup:
What cables are you running from the Isotek to the individual units? I know the 2011 comes with a captive lead :( but what about the other stuff?
I'd be really keen to hear your thoughts on the MiniSub, if there's any way you could do an A/B comparison using it and then using a standard wall socket connection, it'd be very useful for many of us :nod:

Thanks for the advice :thumbup:
For the Sky+ box I have a audusa power cable with fig.of 8 connector. It makes a big difference, noticeably cleaning up graphics and text on the sky EPG. I have bought the Isotek 10 amp leads for the connection to the plasma itself and the tuner box.
When the plasma arrives I will do a comparison with it powered with standard cables and then the mini-sub (+ Isotek cables)....Just waiting on the plasma :(

:nod: I couldn't agree more. If there are still people out there who doubt the worth of higher quality power cables, stick one on your Sky box and, if it's any good, you'll instantly notice the improvements that robertt describes above.

I want to buy a new mains cable for my sky+ box, but when it comes to mains cable I am a complete newbie. I don't want to pay more than £50, any ideas where I can get a good figure of eight cable?

I use a Russ Andrews YellO with a Figure 8 adaptor that they sell for about £4 with it. Does the job nicely and comes in at about £30 IIRC.
