Simplex, our new line of value priced High-Performance powercords
These cables are made to offer the highest possible performance for the lowest possible price while using only high quality, reliable North American and Swiss made parts. Our raw parts come directly from either the manufacturer or first level distribution guaranteeing your cord is constructed from safe, genuine materials designed for the application.
Before any of the parts are used to construct the cables we run them 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.
The Simplex 14 is a double shielded 13.2 awg powercord based on the Gotham 85025 featuring stranded copper conductors with PE insulation. Full specs on the cable can be found HERE
All contact points are treated with DeoxIT Gold before installation of the DCT Schurter 4781 IEC and DCT Marinco 8215 wall plug. We install a Black PET Tightweave sleeve on the cable for protection and then finish with an attractive printed shrinktube. The Schurter 4781 is a slimline IEC and will fit in the tight spaces where many conventional round IECs won't.
The Simplex 14 is very flexible and is well suited to preamplifiers as well as digital front end components such as DAC, CD, DVD, Display, Streamer, HTPC etc.
Measurements are done on actual finished cables,
these results can vary from the manufacturer specs for
the same cable un-terminated. Capacitance and Inductance measurements are taken between the Pos+ and Neg- conductors. Resistance is measured on the Ground conductor. The results below are for the finished cable of the noted length.
All cable testing is performed on an Instek LCR-819 at 1kHz, 1V, 20C
|Length of Cable Under Test
|Capacitance: 125.35 pF
|Inductance: .00087 mH
|Resistance: .01329 Ohm
The base $108.85 (CDN) cable consists of:
(1) 5 ft Deep Cryo Treated Simplex 14 Powercord Terminated with DCT Marinco 8215 wall plug and DCT Schurter 4781 IEC. The price will adjust automatically if you choose a different length.
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.
The parts used in this cable have been Deep Cryo Treated by Take Five Audio, click HERE for full details on our process.
