“I listened to a Power Chord on my CD player and then got two more to use with my pre and power amplifiers.  I heard more detail but it was the improvements in dynamics and control that really impressed.”

The Power Chord mains cable (like so many of our cables) came into being just after the Signature speaker cable.  This was our first shielded speaker cable and it taught us so much about the use of and performance improvements that a high frequency effective shield could bring.

The Power Chord uses the same high frequency effective shielding as other Chord cables, and like other cables with high frequency effective shielding the improvements are easy to hear and pretty universal. There is better definition, bass lines are clear, dynamic and easy to follow.  Voices are more convincing and rhythms hang together better.

Try a Power Chord on your source component but be prepared to experiment. If you start with just one you should try it on all the equipment you have. You may find the biggest result comes from connecting your amplifier first.  It will be easy to hear where it works best, and it will be easy to add more Power Chords as well.
