** Audio Art Statement power cables are now recommended by YBA's US importer, tmh audio as component upgrades for all of their Signature and Passion Series Components! **
Statement I and II power cords have been designed exclusively for Audio Art Cable with one purpose in mind: maximizing the performance potential of the finest audio components and video displays available today.
The all new Statement Series power cable consists of three 10 awg conductors, with 1,386 individual strands of exceptionally pure, silver-coated OFC copper. These ultra high performance conductors are arrayed in a super low inductance, double-shielded construction, providing total immunity to noise, both low and high frequency alike.
Encasing the conductors is a co-polymer dialectic that reduces incoming differential-mode noise. This type of noise enters a power cord through the power line, and can originate from the electric company’s power station, or even from your neighbor’s air-conditioner, microwave, or refrigerator. Over the dialectic are two shields that reduce external noise. Noise of this variety includes airborne interference radio frequency (RFI) which gets radiated into power cords from, for example, other cables that sit close by. The first shield consists of a dense braid of tin and copper. The second shield consists of a layer of conductive foil and a drain wire. Over the outer shield rests a binder wrap that’s followed by the Statement’s PVC outer, and a distinctive Carbon TechFlex jacket.
The Statement power cable is built to deliver instantaneous current on demand, with absolutely no time domain hesitation, satisfying the demands of the very finest high-end audio components and high-performance video displays.>
The foundation of any high performance audio or home theater system is the power delivered to it. We consider the Audio Art Statement Power Cable to offer the most important and most discernible improvement that can be made to your power delivery system.
Of course, a premier power cable demands the inclusion of the very best high-performance audio AC plugs the market has to offer. We offer this new power cable with two different custom terminations.
Our flagship Statement I option is terminated with Furutech’s top of the line FI-50(R), a Piezo Ceramic Series IEC Connector, featuring nonmagnetic Rhodium-Plated Conductors. Furutech’s Pure Transmission FI-50 Piezo Ceramic series connector bodies and housings feature several breakthrough construction techniques. A multilayer nonmagnetic stainless steel and carbon fiber shell incorporates a special damping and insulating acetal copolymer. Furutech settled on stainless and carbon fiber for the outer housing after extensive listening sessions with Japanese industry figures and audiophiles.
The body of the connectors combines two “active” materials: Nano-sized ceramic particles and powdered carbon. (Only nano-sized ceramic particles effectively couples with carbon powder.) Nylon and fiberglass are incorporated as well forming an extremely effective, well damped, mechanically and electrically nonresonant connector body. That’s correct, they’re electrically damped as well.
Piezoelectric effects are the key. Furutech’s breakthrough in design and materials is based on employing nano-sized polycrystalline ferroelectric ceramic particles exhibiting electro-generative properties; mechanical pressure creates an electrical charge forming a bridge between electrical and mechanical oscillation.
Carbon powder exhibits thermal-conductive characteristics that interact with the charged ferro-ceramic particles converting their energy into heat that’s conducted away and released from the surface of the connector body!
These carefully chosen and tested “active” materials mechanically and electrically damp the connector and receptacle as they “interconvert” thermal, mechanical, and electrical energy for the finest Furutech Pure Transmission signal imaginable.

HERE IS WHAT’S BEING SAID AROUND THE HIGH-END COMMUNITY:
"…offers an intensely exciting, ’upfront’ sound that is at once startling, "alive", and visceral. This cable performed with a fantastic sense of clarity and presence. More so than I hear with my regular reference cords"
"Vivid and highly resolving…but not analytical or over the top"
"Musical lines have great clarity and presence."
"Running the Statement power with other top-flight [and more expensive] cords, they were not embarrassed in the least."
"Images are just much more right and are colorfully real. Another killer product from Audio Art Cable!"
