"Well, I've finally found time to setup your Revelation Audio Labs umbilical power cable kit onto my LCR-X2 phono preamp.
"Firstly, I was very pleased with the quality of the construction of your cable kit. It's very well made. The stock original cables are no slouch either when it comes to construction and are just as thick and heavy. But your cable kit certainly brings the quality up a couple of notches, at least.
"I am always a little careful with all silver cables like your cable kit. Reason is that while silver is a great material but if not done right, they tend to be bright and lean sounding. You tend to gain something but also lose something else.
"Well, I needn't worry. Upon first listen, the power cable kit was sounding smooth, with better details and delicacy. Soundstage seems more precise. I was skeptical that your power cable kit could bring much improvement because these cables juts bring DC power from the power transformer to the power supply and then onto to the phono preamp itself. Since its all DC power, you wonder if improved cables can bring much improvement. Well, I was pleasantly surprised. There was clearly discernable improvements. I would say that the amount of improvement is in the ball park of upgrading the interconnects to better ones.
"The most important point I guess is that there is a good measure of sound quality improvement that leads to making the overall system more musical and enjoyable. For those of us who like the Wavac LCR-X2 and the PR-T1 units, there is no other upgrade path aside from the usual power cables and interconnects. But your Revelation Audio Labs umbilical power cable kit now adds another level of improvement that I would highly recommend. Thanks for this important upgrade kit.
Best, ddriveman on AudiogoN"
All cables individually hand crafted in the United States.
Attention all WAVAC PR-T1 preamplifier and WAVAC LCR-X2 phono
Of course you may be aware that the stock umbilical cables that
are supplied with your WAVAC are, with all due respect, mediocre at best, and
may be THE weakest links in your music chain. If you were to take a peak inside you would see very ordinary, inexpensive stranded copper insulated wire. Upgrade from
that stock umbilical set and finally unleash the full performance your WAVAC
PR-T1 preamplifier combo or WAVAC LCR-X2 phono stage combo is capable
of, and that you paid top hard-earned dollar for! If you unwittingly allow your stock
umbilicals to remain in place, you shall never realize the astonishing sonic
potential you are completely missing, but that is so simply within your reach.
Our CryoSilver Reference™ umbilical power cable set is phenomenal,
and is in use in fine audiophile systems by music lovers worldwide.
By no means are these ordinary cables. These are precision
musical instruments, crafted by hand by their very designer, Bradley Vojtech.
Not a product of factory mass production, each cable is more akin to a work of
art. Our work in producing superior high end audio umbilical power cables for
over 15 years has rendered this as the present height of achievement and world
class state of the art.
Be aware. Virtually each and every
high priced, 'high end' audio cable is derived from off-the-shelf wires, made
from inferior metals, extruded in poor insulators, which are the products of
machines which are designed to run wire and cable by the kilometer. This very
inexpensive wire comes off a gigantic roll from mass manufacturers that make
the most common, ordinary wire. The exterior of the cable is dressed up,
jewelry-like connectors are usually installed, and there you have your typical,
so-called 'high end audio cable'. Mass produced, packaged, marketed and advertised to project the illusion of high quality exquisiteness. This is the general wire and
cable industry infiltrating into the special audiophile cable market. The basic
difference between the off-the-shelf cable made by those huge corporations and
most high-end music cables boils down to only one thing...the label. The gospel
truth is most high end audio cables are not handmade with exacting attention to detail
by the hands of an artist who has a passion for music.
Not so at Revelation Audio Labs!
Each and every one of our cables is passionately handcrafted, starting with a
single bare conductor, and building upon that. Ours are not cables that are run
through machines ordained to spew out vast abundance of commodity. Ours are literally by every sense of the term "made from scratch".
Not to belabor you here, as we encourage you to study our web site Technical
Design page 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
• Big Air™ dielectrics – the air envelope of each discreet
conductor is greatly oversized in diameter relative to the conductor diameter
• N.O.S. - U.S. manufactured transparent PTFE Teflon isolator tubes –
hermetically sealed to form the air dielectrics. This system provides an air
dielectric that is unaffected by ambient atmospheric conditions
• Progressive Hand Wrap™ discreet solid shields for each
conductor pole, isolating each conductor/dielectric sub-assembly from all
others within the cable array, to eliminate EM effects, cross talk, and eddy
• Triple-layer solid and helically-woven U.S. made military specification stranded outer
• All shieldings drained to the source ends only (to carry
absorbed internal and external EMI/RFI noise harmlessly away from the
• All highest quality MIL-SPEC genuine Amphenol connectors – not
the Asian imitation “knock-off” connectors used on the stock cables. Feature
silver contacts for seamless metallurgic compatibility and synergy with our
• Conduits feature our Ceramic MicroSphere™ technology for
absorbtion and dissipation of vibrations, resonances and microphonics, both
internal to the cable and external, mechanical and air bourne, as well as for
the control of EM energy
• Finally the conduit is covered externally with our new Conductive Carbon
Infused Composite (CCIC) jacket. This advanced technology material provides
superior 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 performance as it does
with standard cable insulation. The material absorbs and dissipates static
electricity charge build-ups, which occur naturally on common non-conductive
materials. It is typical for these charge levels to be in the thousands of
volts. All areas of audio performance are enhanced by eliminating static
electrical fields and charges from the surfaces of cables. Virtually all
other audio cables suffer from the negative sonic effects of stray fields upon
• Cables are fully conditioned on our audiodharma Cable
Cooker and connector contacts are treated with Walker Audio E-SST
Extreme Super Silver Treatment contact enhancer prior to shipment

We offer a 6-month no-interest financing program.
Revelation Audio Labs does not play the game of offering various
models, with their respective price points, of a type of cable for a
prospective application. This is because each of our cables is simply the very
best that it can possibly be, period, and comparable to the very finest cables
available, period. Yet, our prices are very competitive, because our factory-direct
sales eliminate inevitable distributor mark-up.
We sell directly to the end user, to save you money, but our
cables are also proudly carried by the insistence of these fine high end audio
