Attention all Musical Fidelity amplifier and power supply kit owners, including Titan, kW Series, Nu-Vista and Tri-Vista amplifiers. Of course you may be aware that the stock umbilical cables are mediocre at best and may be the weakest link in your music chain. Don't replace your amplifier - replace your stock umbilical set and finally unleash the full performance your Musical Fidelity amplifier and power supply combo is capable of. Our CryoSilver Reference™ umbilical power cable set for all past and present Musical Fidelity amplifier and power supply combos, including Titan, kW Series, Nu-Vista and Tri-Vista amplifiers is phenomenal, and is in use in fine audiophile systems by music lovers worldwide. But don't take our word for it - here is just one of the many, many unsolicited testimonials we have received from clients using these cables with their Musical Fidelity amplifier combo (quoting):
"High-end audio manufacturers always make compromises in design and manufacturing despite proclamations to the contrary. Simply put costs must be reduced in some areas so the manufacturer can emphasize the areas they think are critical to performance and market characteristics. Musical Fidelity, widely regarded as offering the consumer outstanding value, is no exception to this rule. Despite the incredible performance of the entire kW line improvements can be made and Revelation Audio Labs (RAL) has proven to me that replacing the unique power cord arrangement of the kW 500 or kW 750 yields astonishing results.
"Specifically, RAL manufactured three custom cords which are used to connect the main amplifier unit and separate power supply unit on my kW 500. I first experimented with the preamplifier power cable which is a benign looking piece utilizing DIN connectors on each end. The stock Musical Fidelity cord (back to compromises) is far from special - it does the job but at minimal cost with common wiring and standard plugs. Replacing this cord with RALs immediately yielded incredible results. Suddenly more information from each source was revealed. Additional benefits (which became more apparent following break-in) included more bass control, laser focused imaging and an overall more musical sounding presentation. Following this enhancement I replaced the two amplifier cables which provide dedicated left and right channel power to the main amplifier. Bass output improved markedly over the stock cables and the kW 500's already significant sense of control and pace was further refined.
"If you own the kW 500 and/or kW 750 you must investigate these cables! For a simple plug and play solution you will not yield higher returns - the RAL cables provide a quantum leap in performance for a relatively small investment. Yes, the Musical Fidelity equipment is fantastic but compromises had to made. Contact RAL and make those compromises a distant sonic memory." - D.H.
"I just wanted to thank you once again. These cables are right up there with my Synergistic Research Galileo cables. What a difference they have made speed and dynamics are off the freaking chart. Seems like I'm hearing my system in whole new way. I was about to sell my amps but, no way, no how - it's like I spent thousands on new equipment. I stress whole heartily if you own Musical Fidelity run, jump, hitch hike to get these cables in your system. You will be in heaven all over again just like first time you heard your music on a really good high end system". - J.T.
"Thank you getting the cables delivered as promised! They are absolutely great! Details pour out of the speakers like never before." - D.N., OH
Of course there are quite a number of this cable kit in use in Musical Fidelity amp combos worldwide with outstanding results.
Please visit our web site for a full thesis on our design technologies, but as a brief synopsis, this cable set features:
• We start with bare single crystal five-nines (5N) ultra-pure solid core CryoSilver™ conductors – deep cryogenically treated in our exclusive vacuum cryogenic process. Silver is the most electrically conductive of all the elements, and our silver is not your father’s silver. The raw, uninsulated wire used is made by a U.S. company that specializes in precision silver wiring technology primarily for advanced aerospace and medical imaging industries. Not at all what you find in other audio cables. No bulk cable is employed in any of our designs. That is simply because there is no bulk cable in existence that does what we need it to do.
• Air Tunnel™ dielectrics
• Clear Teflon isolator tubes
• Progressive Hand Wrap™ discreet solid shields for each conductor pole, isolating each conductor/dielectric sub-assembly from all others within the cable, to eliminate EM effects, cross talk, and eddy currents
• Triple-layer solid and helically-woven stranded outer shieldings
• All shieldings drained to the power supply end only (to carry absorbed internal and external EMI/RFI noise harmlessly away from the music)
• All highest quality connectors, made in Switzerland. Feature silver contacts for seamless material compatibility and synergy with our conductors
• All internal condutor-to-connector terminations are treated with Furutech NANO Liquid™ GOLD / SILVER / C30H50 during assembly
• Ceramic MicroSphere™ conduit - another proprietary design feature - absorbs
and dissipates both internal and external air borne vibrations, resonances and microphonics. Ordinary high-end cables are a major path for mechanical vibration to enter sensitive audio equipment. In addition, the effects resonance has on the performance of audio cables themselves is well documented. Audio frequency vibrations induced into the cable may create a state of microphony and transduce physical resonance into electrical resonance, polluting the audio stream. However the most harmful mechanical energy is actually generated internally by the electrical components comprising the audio equipment circuitry, consequently occurring precisely where the delicate music signal resides. These vibrations produce phasing errors that slur and garble the music, diminishing resolution and coloring harmonic equilibrium. To combat this phenomenon, the conduit of this cable is filled by a special process with proprietary Ceramic MicroSpheres™ (patent applied for, Revelation Audio Labs, Inc.), developed through and supported by a number of relevant NASA White Papers dealing with crystal lattices, expressly to defeat this menace to faithful music reproduction. This results in a cable that is virtually immune to the propagation of micro-vibration, and minimizes parasitic vibration of the equipment power supply and audio circuitry. This could be one of your most valuable weapons in your isolation arsenal.
• Conductive Carbon Infused Composite (CCIC)™ outer jacket - this advanced technology material augments the EMI/RFI/EMF shielding of the cable. The negative affects that static electrical fields and charges have on audio cables is well documented. In addition to augmented shielding, crucially the Conductive Carbon jacket provides ESD (Electro Static Discharge) protection as it dissipates static fields and charges, also eliminating static electrical charges from accumulating in the first place, as their presence robs audio performance as it does with standard cable insulation. There are a number of products on the market, accessories if you will, that address static electrical fields on audio cables. Our unique design feature attacks the issue at the source through the proactive, preventative approach. We have been performing tests and trials at length for some time, with phenomenal results, employing Conductive Carbon Infused Composite as the outer jacket material. This material enhances EMI and RFI protection, but what this material provides above and beyond the protection of traditional shielding materials and methodologies is it provides Static Protection, guarding against the phenomenon of ESD (Electro Static Discharge). The material absorbs and dissipates static electricity charge build-ups, which occur naturally on common non-conductive materials (i.e. cable insulation). It is typical for these charge levels to be in the thousands of volts. All areas of audio performance are enhanced by removing static electrical fields and charges from the surfaces of cables. This feature also improves performance by removing from your system surfaces that build and hold static electric fields. Why do other so-called "cost-no-object" cable makers not use such a jacket material? You tell me.
• Cables are fully conditioned on our audiodharma Cable Cooker and connector contacts are treated with Furutech NANO Liquid™ GOLD / SILVER / C30H50 prior to shipment
