Add 30.00$ for a 20A version. Genuine Wattgate 20A connector used.


I set out to build a good looking, fairly priced, very solidly built cable made exclusively with quality parts from reliable manufacturers.
The base cable is from a well established reliable Canadian manufacturer.
The spades are genuine Panduit (USA).
The connectors are genuine SonarQuest, made of real copper.
Even the heat shrink is high quality Panduit brand (USA).


More on parts:


BASE CABLE

10awg pure copper. Made in Canada by a long time established supplier. Very flexible cable, especially for a 10 gauge. Cotton filler reduces capacitance.



CONNECTORS

Although not quite known as Wattgate or Furutech, Sonarquest uses superior materials than their more popular counterparts. Contrary to most AC plugs, these use ONLY copper for the ultimate in conductivity. You can spend over 100$ for a Furutech AC connector set and not even have 100% copper (the IEC is brass). You typically get pure copper in 200$+ sets.

Unfortunately, some custom cable builders use generic stuff you could find on Ebay or Ali because of the cost effectiveness. In my experience, these type of generic brands are rarely made from copper, or even brass, as they claim to be. They're often made from cheap alloys (pot metal) that contain only trace amounts of copper. Worse yet, many of them even contain iron, which creates magnetic fields that will interfere with all your cables and components. 

I use genuine SonarQuest non-plated red copper plugs. I prefer no plating because gold, or even silver plating often includes a nickel to harden the metal and add to its brightness. I prefer a pure copper approach. Nickel is a harder metal but is much less conductive than copper.

Sonarquest uses cryogenic -196 degrees treatment increase the density of metal, hardness and impact toughness. Use of concave and convex security design insure perfect contact that can withstand the pull of 8KG. Sonarquest are the real deal and the absolute best bargain in power connectors.



CONSTRUCTION QUALITY

Very solidly built. Each pole is terminated with high quality, thick Panduit brand 12-10 awg copper fork spades to insure very solid grip. Not only is every single strand held solidly in place but, as seen in pictures, the contact area of the fork and the plug are perfectly flush (see pictures). This much contact area is difficult when screwing down the wire directly. The thicker the cable the more difficult to use all the strands. With this design the entire gauge of the 10 awg wire is utilized. Even Furutech warns that if the wire used is 10awg, a fork should be used.


No bells and whistles here. Just a very solid, easy to work with, 10 awg real cooper cable at a terrific price. Which is more than can be said for a lot of cables out there. I think it looks pretty good too!

I have sold close to 300 of these since I introduced it five months ago. The vast majority on another audio market in Canada (user: rich55). Many repeat buyers have bought 6, 7, even 8, to use them system wide, with great results.
Most have noted an immediate and very noticeable improvement in bass performance. Increased presence, speed and clarity in lower frequencies. With time, many more subtle improvements have also have been noted. A few that come up often are increased soundstage, better coherence and better flow, among other things.
I am convinced you, like past buyers, will be very impressed by the appearance, built quality, attention to detail, and performance of this cable.

Questions for the seller
Being 10AWG cables, do you think/know if these will work well with preamp or CD player, meaning improve the sound of them?
I'd say aroung 50% of my sales are for multiplke cables. 3 or 4 on average. These buyers are installing them system wide, like I do, with great results. It will do great on a pre or source, but not because it's 10awg, because they're all copper, has great quality parts and, if I may say so, very good built quality. The fact it's 10AWG won't hurt the sound of course. I think the reasoning for using them on sources and preamps is they still cost less than most 'all-copper', well built, 12awg or even 14awg cables... Cheers, Rich
Are these shielded and what type of shield(s)?
Hi, Being that these are 10awg cables, most people will use them amplifiers, it's best for them not to shielded. Shielded cables are widely believed to hinder amplifier's dynamics. Also, amp's larger power supplies filters out noise. Remember, many high end power conditioner are built almost exactly like amplifiers. The huge toroïdal transformers act as barriers between the dirty AC power on the grid and the clean DC power they emit. Same stays true with an amplifier. A well designed one anyway. Personally, I don't even use shielding on my streamer. I get better results without. With sources I think it's really case by case. Depends on how much EMI/ RFI you've got floating around your sound system.
What's the burn in time for these cords.
Most people, including myself, noted a marked improvement in bass performance from the get go. People have also noted improved soundstage, performance in mids and other more subtle differences, mostly in the first few hours. I'm not completely excluding the idea of more changes over time but I think you'll get a very good idea of what sound to expect very early on.
What are the benefits to a 20a connector
It's less a question of which is better, it depends what kind of socket you amp has. You would only buy a power cable with a 20A connector if your amplifier requires it because it has a 20A socket. The copper is usually slightly thicker because it must able to sustain a 20A signal without overheating... but most amplifiers will never go over 10A for more than a fraction of a second.
Hi can you supply with a female 20amp end
Hi! Yes I can. It is a Wattgate 20A connector. Sonarquest doesn't make a 20A. Just add 30.00$ to the price.
