Stereophile "Recommended Component" 2006
Ultra-Quiet AC Cord Enhances Toe-Tapping Rhythms
Improve the sound of your music by improving your power cord. It really is that simple, though a premium power cord like the PK 10 Gold is complicated to design. It allows exceptional low-level resolution - not to mention toe tapping rhythmic articulation.
The Kimber Kable PK10 earned inclusion in the coveted Stereophile "Recommended Component" listing for April 2006, citingbenefits of "tremendous differences" with the Kimber.
As electric current flows through a wire, it produces a magnetic field which reacts with close-proximity audio and video components, adding noise and distortion. The PK 10 Gold PowerKord from Kimber Kable features two sets of conductors braided in counter-rotating geometry, which effectively cancel unwanted magnetic fields.
The 10-gauge, high-current PK 10 Gold delivers the power and leaves the magnetic field back at the wall! It also eliminates induced current flow in the ground lead, lowering overall system noise. The braided design provides superb radio frequency interference (RFI) rejection. A special conductor dielectric is devoid of performance robbing color doping, permitting an uninhibited flow of current and voltage
PK 10 Gold is terminated on one end with the premium Wattgate Audio Grade 350 IEC, with three-layer plating consisting of oxygen-free copper, electroless nickel, and 24K gold. Gold's other termination is the premium 330 US wall plug.
