I guess when you're already paying five grand for an amp, a few more bucks won't break the bank.
I think it's rather silly, but I'm sure plenty will use this fancy service.
Don't need one.
When I get my amp, isn't going operate off of good ole Texas natural gas.

Well, I would think if you are paying 5 grand for an amp, the power plug shouldn't cost you a cent! I mean, does Porsche charge you extra for a gas tank?

On another note, I seen an FT 101 replacement power cord sell for $55 bucks recently.
I figure for that much money, it must have a static free Titanium outer sheath, oxygen free gold plated wire inside, and fireproof FAA spec. aircraft grade plug prongs.

Hey, I live a long ways from the nearest supply store, so if I had to drive to get one, between the three hours, the 80 miles of fuel and paying probably close to $15 for the plug? Shoot, seems to me that $45 is not exhorbanant by comparison - takes the guy at the shop 10 minutes probably to install it. Of course, they only offer one style of plug, so if you have a different outlet, it does not matter. Of course, at that price for the amp I think they should throw in the plug.
At first I thought they had solved a "universal plug" problem, which might have been well worth it!

Whatever happened to powering up by sticking two screwdrivers in the receptacle and attaching with alligator clips?
It amazes me that the (supposedly)most technologically advanced country in the world still uses such crappy power plugs and sockets.
