Together with my modified SurgeX power distribution and conditioning systems, a version of the PL Power Cable with a 20 amp IEC plug was used to power the Von Schweikert System at RMAF 2014, contributing to a best sound in show award in the cost-no-object category by The Absolute Sound and a very successful debut of their new VR-55 loudspeaker. At RMAF 2015 my modded SurgeX and 20 amp PL Power Cable was used in the Vapor / Lampizator / Resolution Acoustics / Antipodes / ZenWave room, which went on to win multiple awards including best of show in the cost no object category.
The wire used is my exclusive 14 gauge UPOCC copper litz wire which is clear, accurate and neutral. These cables add the least possible coloration to the signal, and the damping added by the woven cotton jacket helps create a very quiet background. The plugs are Furutech FI-28(R), or the world renowned and often imitated Furutech FI-50 NCF. In power cables the connectors are extremely important both in composition of the conductors, the plating, the wire clamps, and the resonant quality of the body. The Furutech FI-50 NCF isn’t only pretty, it’s designed to be non-resonant and reduce noise and distortion. The effect of mechanical damping, the rhodium plating and NCF material makes for a great sounding AC and IEC plug. I can also make power cables with 20 amp IEC plugs or non-US AC plugs, just contact me for a quote. The PL11 11 gauge power cable is perfect for amps, the PL14 for everything else. The PL14 has an 11g ground connection for a quieter background while the hot and neutral are 14g. Looking for the best in performance? Look no further than the PL Power Cable!
Why not offer cheaper plugs? The plugs are key and often more important than the wire with AC power! The PL cable with the plugs I’ve chosen performs at the very top levels of power cables regardless of price, this is NOT true for the same cable with lesser plugs. The FI-28(R) are still not inexpensive but are required to keep the performance level where it needs to be to be sold with other ZenWave Audio cables. It is my intention to offer cables that compete with the best regardless of price!
