May 2023: 

 

For all of those who've been asking and patiently waiting for this,

we're very happy to announce the return of The Silver Hybrid 3 power cable

to our range.

Now with enhanced shielding - hence it will now be known as

the Silver Hybrid 3+

It's available with UK, European or US plugs

Construction

Sliver Hybrid 3+ uses silver-plated conductors insulated in low loss silicone rubber. These are twisted and comprehensively shielded against RFI and EMI and covered with a vibration-reducing black braid. 

In a power cable, comprehensive shielding is perhaps the biggest factor affecting the sound achieved - this stops interference from outside of the cable

dirtying-up the power being fed into your hifi gear.

Also it stops the cable radiating interference which might otherwise be picked up by your signal cables and other hi-fi components, causing distortion. 

This is basically how it is that the last metre or two of mains cable (the bit that isn't buried in the walls) can make such a difference to a high-end hi-fi - it's this removal of radiated and absorbed interference, reducing distortion.

Connectors:

 

The silver-plated conductors are comprehensively shielded, then terminated with very high quality plugs: 

All versions use the exquisite Oyaide C-037 IEC connectors from Japan at the equipment end. 

At the wall end, the European and US versions are terminated with Oyaide P-037e and Oyaide P-037, respectively.

Oyaide don't make a UK 3-pins plug, so for the UK version we use a high quality plug with silver-plated pins for a superior low-loss contact.

Safety:

 

Of course, safety is paramount with power cables and for this reason, all of our mains cables are hand-made for us in England by a very experienced separate specialist contractor.

30 days "no-quibble" trial period - if you don't love the cable, return it for a full refund.

 

[Research done a few years ago established that the effect of power cables

is length-dependent.

Extensive listening tests have established that 1.7 metres is the optimum length, therefore all of our mains cables are 1.7 metres.

(Why this should be the case is still unknown, but the ears don't lie!)] 

 

Please choose from UK, European or US style mains plugs
