Power Cords

Our Finest Power Cord

Anyone who is knowledgeable of power cords in the High-End industry and is also knowledgeable of those that receve great recommendations, will, I am sure, know of the reputation of our original AC-2 Power Cord. We have been working since February (2006) trying to develop a better one; (no easy task!).We had to be certain that any upgrade would be an upgrade in all areas of performance: clarity, focus, dynamics, inner detail, harmonic accuracy and of course, it must be musical. After this period of time (and some mid-night oil,) we did it!!

The ten gauge AC-2 MK II is truly an outstanding power cord. Take advantage of our 45 day trial period. You won't be disapointed.

The design and construction improvements are in two specific areas: The weaving geometry for the Mark IIs is done with a planetary cabler. This weaving machine, which allows engineers more freedom in designing more complex and more effective weaving geometries, also produces a much more accurate and consistent weaving geometry. Accuracy and consistency from foot to foot is essential to replicate and realize the benefits of the theoretical “on paper” design. The process is much more labor intensive, primarily in the set up for the production run, and in monitoring during the run. Consequently, it is more expensive to produce. Our weaving geometry and the 260% shielding coverage we use for isolating the conductors, provides for elimination of RF, EMI and other "Garbage" disturbances that your house wiring and power company has picked up along the way.

Additionally, we use PTFE Teflon in most all of our cables; however, the insulation we are using for this new cable, while it is purchased as PTFE Teflon, we are modifying it during the wire manufacturing process. Again, a little more costly. Our modification to the PTFE Teflon insulation allows for substantial reduction of the signal discharge back into the metal conductor. Explanation: All insulations covering a metal wire will absorb a portion of the signal as it flows through the metal wire. That signal will discharge back into the metal wire, although it is delayed by a small fraction of time. This discharge back smears the real time current wave form that is passing through resulting in small but discernable distortion.

We continue to use our proprietary Silverfuse alloy conductor material.
