Powerline, High-Performance powercords for power amplifiers
This line of powercords is best used
with power amplifiers plugged directly into the wall. They are
constructed from large gauge conductors and do not use shielding, this
helps give the amplifier a more dynamic sound with improved soundstage
dimensions. The conductors are stranded tinned copper with a PE tape
wrap and overall EPDM insulation, the three conductors are then encased
inside an extruded jacket. This makes an extremely durable and well
The Furutech connectors on
these cables get special treatment also. The FI-11-N1(G) is a great sounding
connector that is very well built. We take this connector to a higher
level of performance by replacing the cable clamps with plastic versions and machining the cable entry for a "Perfect-Fit". We machine the stock plastic cable clamps so that they grip this 20 mm cable firmly
around the circumference with even force, this ensures the cable geometry is not
disturbed. After the clamp tightens around the cable it then clamps down tight on the backshell so that the cable, clamps and backshell become
one solid unit reducing vibration distortion.
Our raw parts for these cables come
directly from either the manufacturer or first level distribution
guaranteeing your cord is constructed from safe, genuine materials
designed for the application.
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
Powerline 10 is an un-shielded powercord
featuring tin plated 10 awg stranded copper conductors wrapped with PE tape and overall
EPDM insulation. The Powerline 10 uses crimped Gold plated copper
spades to terminate to the connector.
All contact points are treated with DeoxIT Gold before installation of
the Furutech FI-11M-N1(G) wall plug and FI-11-N1(G) IEC. We install a
Gold/Black PETsleeve on the cable for protection and then finished with
printed shrinktubes at both ends.
Powerline 10 is quite flexible for a large gauge cord and is well suited to the
higher current demand of some amplifiers. The Powerline 10 with the
FI-11-N1(G) connectors offers a detailed and dynamic sound that is on the warmer side. This cord would be preferred over the Cu version if your system is on the the brighter side.
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: 130.21 pF
|Inductance: .00104 mH
|Resistance: .00659 Ohm
The base $337.15 (CDN) cable consists of:
(1) 5 ft Deep Cryo Treated Powerline 10 Powercord Terminated with Furutech FI-11M-N1(G) wall plug and FI-11-N1(G) 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.
