Audia Flight Phono power cable


Recommended Posts

I have a cable that looks well shielded but had a European plug. On disconnecting the power socket there is an extra wire with the earth. Does anyone know what this does? Or what to do with it?

Probably a drain wire to ensure proper conduct of the shielding.

Thanks Chris, so  do you think  it that it is meant to be connected to the earth pin on the power socket?

Usually the drain wire is connected at one end only, the plug end. This is to ensure there is effective shielding and that an earth loop

isnt created by having two complete earth circuits. The mains earth is the green wire and is connected at both ends.
