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 cable clamps so that they grip this 18 mm cable
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 12 is an un-shielded powercord
featuring tin plated 12 awg stranded copper conductors wrapped with PE tape and overall
EPDM insulation. Rather than using spades the Powerline 12 conductors are terminated directly to the connector giving you the lowest resistance and lowest noise floor possible.
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 12 is quite flexible for a 12 gauge cord and will have no problem supplying current to all but the most power hungry amplifiers. The Powerline 12 with the
FI-11-N1(G) connectors offers a detailed and dynamic sound that is on
the warm side of neutral. This cord would be preferred over the Cu
version if your system was leaning to the brighter side.
