Introducing The New TFA SQ-9 Powercord

The TFA SQ-9 is best used with power amplifiers plugged directly into the wall. It is constructed from large gauge conductors and does not use shielding, this helps give the amplifier a more dynamic sound with improved soundstage dimensions.

This powercord uses four 12 awg stranded OFC copper conductors in a star-quad configuration with a separate counter spiraled 10 awg silver plated ground wire. The SQ-9 is terminated with Furutech FI-11-N1(G) AC connectors which we modified for a "Perfect Fit". Our "Perfect Fit" modification ensures the cables geometry and measurements are not negatively impacted when full clamping force is applied.

This modification also eliminates the rattling between backshell and cable clamp which is common when the FI-11 connectors are used on large diameter cables, this further reduces noise and improves focus.

The TFA SQ-9 uses Star-Quad geometry to lower inductance and resistance and also increase noise rejection with no added braid or foil shielding. The counter-spiralled ground greatly reduces capacitive coupling between ground and power conductors which again helps to lower noise.

The TFA SQ-9 has a smooth, neutral tonal balance with excellent detail, dynamics and low end grunt. This cable offers unusual flexibility, especially considering that it is 9 AWG per pole! The TFA SQ-9 is flexible enough to tie in a knot or wrap around your wrist. The SQ-9 can be ordered in lengths from 5 ft to 12 ft, if you need something shorter or longer contact us for pricing.

Cryogenics: All the parts used to build this cable have been Cryogenically Processed. The Furutech connectors have been processed by Furutech and the balance of the parts have been through our proprietary Deep Cryogenic Process. We perform the Cryogenic Processing on-site using a Cryotron processor and Liquid Nitrogen. This process enhances the performance of the cable and connectors giving you improved dynamics, lower noise, smoother highs and improved soundstage dimensions. This process and its benefits can be found in all our cables.

 Cable Measurements
 Our measurements are done on actual finished cables, these results can be quite different than the manufacturer specs for the same cable. Measurements for raw unterminated cables are usually based on conductor-conductor and conductor-shield readings on long lengths of unterminated cable.
These per ft measurements are a good guideline to determine the suitability of a cable for an application but in most cases they cannot be extrapolated to give you the specs of a given length of finished cable. The reason for this is that they do not take into consideration the variables that come into play when a cable is terminated such as telescoped shields, conductor grouping and the connectors themselves.
The results below are for the finished cable of the noted length.

The base $426.75 (CDN) cable consists of:

(1) 5 ft Deep Cryo Treated TFA SQ-9 Powercord Terminated with "Perfect Fit" Furutech FI-11-N1 wall plug and IEC. The price will adjust automatically if you choose a different length.

Select the cable length you need for your application, then press the order button. The total cost of the cable will appear in the shopping cart at the top of the right hand navigation bar. Click "view cart" to see an itemized list of the cables ordered. Shipping cost and any applicable taxes will be applied during checkout. Once the order is placed the cables are constructed to your specs and will ship next business day unless you decide to have them pre-conditioned on our cable cooker. Please allow five days for the pre-conditioning process.

If you have your cables pre-conditioned (burned in) on our audiodharma Cable Cooker they will require only a minimal amount of time to reach their full potential, typically about one day of normal use to settle in and another 2-3 days of normal use to reach about 90-95% of it's full potential.
