“The C-power made a big difference to my DAC and things got better again when I put one onto my amplifier.”

The Chord C-power is a simple, straightforward and easy to hear upgrade to pretty much any component with an IEC input socket.

The C-power power cable follows the same design principles as every other Chord cable and that means attention paid to shielding, conductors and termination.  We were lucky enough to work with a UK company that specialises in military grade power cable terminations, so the C-power is fitted with a high quality over-moulded mains plug and an equally high quality IEC plug.

Don’t dismiss over-moulded plugs, they have certain advantages.  All the terminations are high pressure crimped (no screws to work loose) and the over-moulding process holds the conductors firmly in place and reduces mechanically induced noise.

Like our other power cables, we are inclined to think that the place to start experimenting with C-power cables is by trying one with your source.  This could be your CD player or your DAC/Streamer.  Play a piece of music you know well, fit the C-power and listen again.  Do shielded mains cables make a difference?  Hear it for yourself, the difference is clear.  Regardless of the cost of your system, the Chord C-power mains cable is a very cost effective and worthwhile upgrade.
