Zu Event Power [Mk.I] is designed as a universal needs, ultra-high performance AC mains cable for use on all home audio or pro audio equipment. Event Power cables compliant with: UL, IEEE, CSA, CE, BSI, JET, RoHS. They perform at the highest level without being obscenely expensive, and unlike most top-shelf cable offerings, Event is full of body, tone, texture, able to compliment your most real blood and guts music then turn around and illuminate to new levels your favorite jazz, electronica and orchestral recordings.

Event Mk.I power cables are a combination of both silver and copper conductor—pure copper for the inner circuits, insulated in cross-linked polyethylene, and outer Teflon insulated circuits using silver and copper. Shielding is very heavy tin platted copper braid. They are also flexible and easy to work with, unlike many of our competitors fire hose cables that have less conductor area and way more fluff. Event, with its very high conductance, high magnitude shielding and ZuB3™ electrodynamics technology you are guaranteed the best possible isolation from RF and EMI. Know there are many variables relative to AC power, just one of which is your power cable and there are situations were a power cable will not improve fidelity. We recommend that you trust your ears and experiment. Reasons for this include the design or condition of your equipment's power supply, gear grounding, system grounding, grid grounding, environment RF, above ground potentials, AC grid condition, and on it goes. Nevertheless, if the power cable does a good job of shunting noise to ground and has good properties relative to fundamental measures, it should sound good; and yes, we feel Zu Event Power Mk.I does these things better than any other competing power cable on the market save our own Event Mk.II (of course).
Zu Event Power cable will require roughly 400 hours of play for full performance. We do not recommend any burn-in devices or special recordings, simply play the music you enjoy, preferably upbeat full spectrum recordings: rock, roots, full orchestra, big band....
For the possible hows and whys about burn-in please see our Answers section.
Anytime you are making an electrical connection make it a habit to inspect the contacts and clean them if they are tarnished or dirty. No specific maintenance is required for Event power cable or its connectors. All conductors and terminations done within the Event power cable are sealed. If the exposed connector contact blades on the wall plug ever become dull or tarnished you may want to clean them.
If you have questions please let us know, we love this stuff and are here to help.
