Use Your 15-Amp Power Cable with 20-Amp Gear
If you've got a premium 15-amp AC power cord that you'd love to use with an AV component that only has a 20-amp IEC, you need this handy adapter from Pangea Audio.
The female IEC end of the Pangea Audio 20A-15A IEC Adapter accepts any standard male IEC-terminated power cable. The male IEC end plugs into a component that uses 20-amp IEC power cords.
The molded, one-piece polymer body is strong enough to hold heavy power cords snugly in place, while the ridged, easy-to-grip design makes it easy to plug-in and unplug. The heavy-gauge copper contacts help to optimize power deliver. The gold plating on the contacts resists corrosion.

|I was frustrated|
It was frustrating not being able to experiment with audiophile-grade power cables with my big amp but now this adapter lets me do that. It makes a snug fit - I'm not worried about it falling out. This thing helped me discover that the $175 Pangea AC9 MKii power cable sounds better than two other $600-$800 power cables I own. AC9 has tighter and more powerful bass and is warmer in the mid-band. I wouldn't have been able to discover this difference without this adapter.

|Great Find. Great Buy|
This is a really good product. I was considering another adapter like this but I found out it was made of two parts soldered together then covered with heat shrink. And it was $150. The Pangea adapter is one molded piece with thick gold-metal-plated connections. I'm using with my big main amp and the new Cardas M-Power power cable. Big upgrade, I must tell you.

|Ideal for my Krell|
I am using this adapter to connect a Pangea AC9 power cable to my Krell amp. The Krell has a 20A IEC connector. That limits the power cables I can use a lot. This adapter is well made. Makes a secure connection.

This clever connector solved a major problem for me. This adapter let's me try out a whole variety of power cables that I wouldn't otherwise get to try out on my Rowland power amps. Its a solid one-piece construction with good heavy guage gold-plated contacts. Best thirty buck buy of the year.
