Great main power line from wall outlet to your power conditioner which, of course, is because the power conditioner must then feed every connected component.
Also, awesome for subwoofers. If you have replaced the power cable on your amp and noticed an improvement, you will be amazed at the difference a power cable upgrade to make to a subwoofer amp with 500, 1,000, 2,000 of watts of power that is sitting 10 feet away from its power source, assuming you have your sub cable plugged into your power conditioner and not the electrical outlet closest to the subwoofer.
The PerfectWave AC3 ... offers a significant improvement over stock power cables.
The low noise, high-speed design of the AC3 is based on 5 patents
and years of listening and engineering and we believe it will bring new levels
of refined beauty, power and spacious performance to high-end systems that use
AC power is a critical element in any high-performance audio/video
system. Delivering that power to your equipment, without loss, is the job of
the AC power cable.
IT’S ALL IN THE DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION
A stock power cable is something manufacturers purchase in large
volumes from the lowest cost vendors and include in their products as a
courtesy. These power cables will always be adequate in terms of power
delivery but rarely designed to take advantage of all the performance values
the equipment is capable of.
When choosing a power cable for connected equipment it is
important to select a model with adequate shielding, proper materials and well
designed connectors that are up to the task at hand.
The PS Audio PerfectWave AC3 an excellent type of power delivery
system needed for any high-end audio or video equipment.
The PerfectWave AC3 represents PS Audio's best in affordable power
cable construction as practiced over the last decade.
The AC3 is a 12 gauge pure Oxygen Free Copper cable constructed in
multiple gauges and shapes. Inside the AC3 is one hollow OFC conductor
for the treble regions, one large OFC rectangular conductor for the midrange
and multiple gauges of OFC bundled together for the bass. The results of
these design decisions is something rewarding to experience.
Use the AC3 in any high-end audio application as a replacement for
the stock power cable. Once connected via the AC3 you’ll most likely
notice better performance in ways you didn’t realize your system was capable of
because of its stock power cable.
As early as 2003 PS Audio realized that even with the best
conductor technology in the world would benefit from an improved connector.
The PerfectWave AC3 connectors are built out of a solid block of
high copper content brass, and then polished to remove any surface
irregularities. The surface of each is then nickel plated to help prevent
oxidation of the raw brass over time.
Traditional off-the-shelf stock power cords use a tightened steel
screw to hold the conductor against the prong or are simply squeezed together.
This practice is prone to oxidation and corrosion as well as loss of
The PerfectWave AC3 instead
employs welding to fuse the conductor to the machined prong and high
silver content solder in in a final technique that creates the perfect bond of
welding and soldering."
Purchased new and was part of my system in my air-conditioned and smoke-free home. Was running between the wall and power conditioner in my equipment rack. Was run on top of cable lifts so has never been on the floor and has never been positioned in anything other than a gently sweeping curve. I am selling because I upgraded to a different power cable.

listings here on Audiogon.
This item has been listed to the best
of my ability. Audio/Visual is my hobby and since it began I have kept
most all of the equipment I have used, or had intended to use at
some point, along with the original boxes whenever possible. Since
delivered to me, each item listed has been in my air-conditioned and smoke-free home,
is exceptionally clean and has been very well cared for.
My professional career keeps me busy
during weekdays; however, I will ship each item as soon as possible, which
usually means within one to three days after payment has been received.
Depending on the size of a
particular listing's shipping box, I have elected to use either USPS
Priority or FedEx Ground. The reason for this is that electronics can be
sensitive to how they are handled during shipping and, over time, I have
noticed that my packages arrive in excellent condition when they had been
shipped to me via either USPS or FedEx. Which is why, whenever has been an
option, I have purchased from vendors who ship via either USPS of FedEx.
I take pride in my seller rating, if
for some reason there is an issue with your item when it arrives, please
contact me ASAP so that I may address the issue immediately and avoid
your dissatisfaction before you have entered your feedback.
