Oval Shaped Solid Core PCOCC-A Cable
Power Reference 2.5m AU plug
In excellent condition and original box
A new one retails at USD$4,490 (JP¥475,000) for a 2.5m cable, this is a rare opportunity to get this at a fraction of the cost.
The Acoustic Revive Power Reference power cables' materials are picked by ear to provide the best musical performance, and are hand crafted in a very laborious process that is described in detail on the Acoustic Revive web site.
The most important contribution the Acoustic Revive Power Reference cables make is to long-term listening satisfaction, by increasing the life-likeness of the musical content of recordings. Things like timbre, meter, tonality, harmony, beat, tempo, syncopation, and melody, all became more convincingly life-like. Overall, the presentation of the music becomes less artificial and electronic sounding. The music takes on more deeply colorful tone and more realistic timbral textures. The music also becomes more naturally integrated in sound and time, and more compellingly musical in the way live music is.
The Power Reference power cables utilize 2.6mm by 2.2mm oval Pure Copper by Ohno Continuous Casting (PCOCC-A) single core conductors. The 'A' on the PCOCC-A indicates that the conductors have been annealed. PCOCC-A is an ultra-high purity (greater than 8N) single-crystal copper conductor that has been annealed to increase its pliability and conductivity (see Figure 1). According to Acoustic Revive, single core conductors are superior to stranded cables because they do not have an "outbreak of straying electric current and distortion". Acoustic Revive makes a point of saying that the oval shape of their conductors means they do not have a resonance point, which contributes to a smoother, more transparent, three-dimensional, and articulate sound compared to other kinds of conductors.
The PCOCC-A conductors are covered with a natural silk dielectric, which Acoustic Revive says gives a more natural and spacious feel to the music. The silk covered PCOCC-A conductors are then covered with Teflon coated flexible copper tubing that provides 100% shielding from RFI. Acoustic Revive then covers the entire power cable assembly with mesh polyurethane tubing containing embedded carbon particles that provides additional shielding and vibration isolation. The plug ends of the Power Reference cables are customized Oyaide connectors whose conductive parts have been plated with silver and rhodium, then polished to a mirror-like finish before being cryogenically treated to further improve conductivity.
