This listing is for 2.0M preowned JPS Labs Kaptovator Power Cord in excellent condition. No Bends or kinks, orig factory IEC plugs.
The Kaptovator starts with a special alloy blend, ultra-fine purity 8 gauge/8.35 mm2 conductor, easily the largest conductor of any high-end AC cable. This is no ordinary run-of-the-mill conductor, and its response optimized, concentric lay coupled with a very tightly twisted design makes for a very compact and flexible wire that acts as a solid, as one large coherent conductor for power, greatly improving low frequency definition and allowing a clean natural sound with amazingly well defined bass, yet never sterile nor bright.
Where the Kaptovator sets itself apart is with its unique insulation material, which can greatly determine how well a cord will perform and its final sonic character. JPS Labs found Kapton® to be an amazingly great insulator for our finest AC cord, and a very expensive one. Kapton is a very high-tech dielectric used mainly in space and military applications where performance means everything and cost is no object. Unlike all other ac cords, the Kaptovator will not absorb low level detail nor blur information within a thick mass of low grade insulation. Both audio and video components will greatly benefit from the resulting dramatic increase in detail retrieval.
The Kaptovator's outer jacket is clear for all to see how neat and orderly the inside of a well designed cord can be; and what you are paying for. Most cord designers would never think of allowing this. As with all of our unique cable designs, simplicity proves to be best, and of course what looks simple is not always as simple as it looks. This special clear outer jacket's elasticity was adjusted to also act as a very effective dampening material to address any mechanical vibration traveling along the cords length which may affect the cords true sonic character (or lack of it), and special surface coatings dissipate any static build-up. Many more 'hidden' and costly features have been included in this unique AC cord's design, including Wattgate gold audiophile grade plug (or gold plated Euro or UK), and so many small details considered nothing short of art in cable design, but of course we must keep some things a secret...
The Kaptovator is better at supplying power to low power components on up to the largest of amplifiers than any other cord made except for our own absolute finest Aluminata AC, making it a highly universal mate for just about any component capable of greater resolution at it's output, including tube and digital components.
Low frequency bass definition will improve dramatically with an incredible rolling of bass drum most systems cannot reproduce and bass guitar and piano strings will resonate with a full set of overtones intact.
Mid and high frequency air and resolution will be at their peak of perfection. Vocals will sound so very real, full and rich, with no hint of brightness or forwardness, in proper perspective.
All instruments will be well focused and well rounded while keeping their original harmonic structure intact, just as if they are all right there with you in the room. It becomes increasingly important with an AC cord such as this that the rest of your systems' cables and AC cords are truthful to the source, not tailoring the sound. If you are already using JPS cables, life will be good.
