Personally and it is my opinion only, the power cable has little impact on the quality of audio output for the most part as long as it is the typical range of 6' long , 18awg to 14awg stranded copper. I tend to think that power cables are over-hyped by companies that sell accessories and try to carv...

Coil appears discoloured but that may be normal for a aged factory coating or signs that it has overheated. The fact that the deck is still functioning indicates that the solenoid is still functioning. Try the "smell" test to find out if it has indeed been overheated. :roll: Check with as ...
