First of all, there is no other power cord on the market at this price point that even comes close to this. No hype, No snake oil No voodoo.
Pure, simple, outstanding cable with performance approaching the very best and most expensive audio cables on the market, for a fraction of the price.
Well below what audiophiles normally expect to pay for superbly engineered and hand crafted components. Best Value of any cables available.
All my cables are made by hand by me one at a time, I'm a small operation working at my home, with a small markup (40%) including labor. Unlike large cable manufactures which have a large overhead and typically charge 16 - 20 times cost. My mission is to the finest audio components, of the finest materials, at a reasonable price.
The wire is MIL spec aerospace stranded silver plated copper wire, silver being the best conductor of electricity, Teflon insulation is very close to air resulting in very low capacitance which makes the cable suitable for any audio component as it will not contribute to instability,or absorb the signal. Teflon insulation is very thin resulting in a cable that is lightweight and flexible.This cable will not stress the jacks on your components, but is very large gauge. This configuration provides incredible imaging and detail across the entire audio spectrum, deep, tight, powerful bass, sweet transparent midrange smooth and linear high frequency response. This cable provides incredibly low resistance.
This heavy-wall wire, rated at 1,000 volts rms or 3,000 volts DC, saves both size and weight compared with many other insulated wires of the same rating.
Suitable for broad-frequency use at elevated temperatures in high-reliability programs where electrical and thermal stability are important
The powerCON is a locking 3 conductor equipment AC connector with contacts for line, neutral and pre-mating ground contact. It replaces appliance couplers wherever a very rugged solution in combination with a locking device is needed in order to guarantee a safe power connection.
Features & Benefits:
•Power-in (blue) and power-out (grey) versions with different keying to avoid the possibility of intermating
•Fast and easy twist lock latching system
•Extremely robust and reliable
•Unique Neutrik chuck type strain relief
•Improved kink protection by two-component bushing
•New bushing design avoids unintended opening
•UL, cUL recognized components
•4 µm Ag Silver plated contacts
Hubbell Hospital Grade HBL8115V:
The HBL8115V is a 2-pole 3-wire NEMA 5-15P Hospital-grade Valise Plug with nylon housing, Noryl (polyphenylene oxide) cord clamp, brass contact blade and ground contact blade. Maximum 30°C temperature rise at full rated current after 50 cycles of overload at 150% of rated current at a power factor of 75%.
•Stainless steel terminal screw
•Stainless steel (green finish) ground screw
•Withstands 2000V minimum dielectric voltage
HOSPITAL GRADE RECEPTICALS, superior in the following ways:
The ground terminal is totally isolated from the lead and neutral circuits to reject ground loop noise and electro-magnetic interference. The internal circuitry, wire and blade contacts are heavy-gauge phosphor bronze made of 95% solid copper- not plated brass!
The receptacle body is made of injection molded thermoplastic with a Nylon face for high dielectric strength. The receptacle grips plug blades tighter than any other audio-grade receptacle on the market. Receptacles can definitely make a difference. Hospital grade receptacles grip tighter for safe use in oxygen-rich environments and better sounding in Audio Applacations.Tighter connection, better energy transfer.
Specifications on Commercial grade, outlets, versus Hospital outlets are listed as follows:
Insulator for Commercial Grade = Nylon
Insulator for Hospital Grade =Thermo Polyester
Material for ground strap, Commercial Grade = Steel
Material for ground strap, Hospital Grade = Brass
Material for voltage contact, Commercial = Alloy Brass
Material for voltage contact, Hospital = Pure Brass
Material for mount strap, Commercial Grade = Steel
Material for mount strap, Hospital Grade +Brass, Ni plate.
The materials used in manufacturing hospital grade products are higher quality,
and should not surprise anyone that they sound better. Just compare the insulators and conductors,
not even considering the plating and grounding specs.
“I waited to write until i had a firm understanding in the capabilities of the unit.
It replaced a Shunyata venom as i had expanded and moved it to a second system.
I used a direct A/B comparison between the two. Marks distributor is excellent.
I could perceive NO DIFFERENCE between the two distributors. Quite a feat for 1/4 the price. Mark's cables are the real deal and it is impressive.
I do not use audiophile adjectives to describe the presentation of music,
after all, what the hell does "organic" mean anyway?
Different meanings to different people. If you want an excellent distributor, no matter the price, talk to Mark. Highly recommended. ”
Hi Mark,Just connected the pods-mainly to feed my 2 ML Vantages.From experience-electricity supply quality to electrostats has a great influence on sound-even though this runs counter to most logic.
And,lo and behold-a dramatic improvement in sound.I am very happy.And,electricity in Germany seems to be very good to begin with.
I would be hard pressed to think of any investment in an ambitious sound system that could yield more bang for the buck than your pods.
