It has been argued that power cords should not make a difference in the performance of a high-end system, especially considering the miles and miles of power line cables leading up to the AC outlet that you connect your system to. The truth is that the last few feet of power cords are the first length of cable your components see, as a result, it greatly influences the performance of the component. Well-designed power cords should provide safe and clean power to components, eliminating radiated and transmitted noise that can adversely affect the performance of the components.
In today’s environment, noise is very pervasive and usually comes along for the ride when listening to music through high-end systems. Most types of noise are not readily obvious as they manifest themselves as part of the fabric of the music. They nevertheless cause significant degradation and distortion of the original recordings if not addressed. Noise problems appear as hazy or diffuse images, listener fatigue, spectral anomalies where some frequencies are highlighted over others, flat two-dimensional images that always seem to stick to the front wall, lack of soundstage acoustical cues with poor perception of relative placement within the soundstage, murky transient performance with indistinct attack & decay characteristics and, many more.
A good system with good power quality should reproduce recorded music with unmistakable clarity, speed, dimensionality, finely delineated soundstage layering and, present solid fundamentals to soaring harmonics. The system should be able to morph from one recording to the next, fully interpreting the diversity of recording techniques that move you from small halls to huge cathedrals depending on the recording.
Dynamic Design award-winning power cords, in a well-designed and balanced system, will float images that are devoid of boundaries, wrapping around you with a strong sense of 3-D dimensionality, incredibly wide bandwidth frequency extension and, stunning acoustical cues that put you right in the middle of the performance. Our power cords are designed to get out of the way of your components so your music can soar to new heights and beyond. We pay special attention to all cable design parameters, the conductors, insulation, shielding and, connectors.
