The DHC-1 power cord was designed in 2003 in response to the
overwhelming confusion experienced by our own customers when faced with
"which cord to buy".
Power cords are simply a link in the chain of audio
components. And like a chain, the weakest links in the chain
define the limitations of its performance.
Can a power cord really improve the
sound? The answer is often determined by the transparency of your
equipment. The more transparent, the easier it is to hear
improvements. Typical improvements are:
Tighter bass response, better control over dynamics, less smearing and
If you've been researching power cords on the internet, your head is
probably swimming with adjectives and exotic explanations about why
every cord you looked at was "the best". And of course the
prices, some 5 digit, that show just how absurd the hi-end cable
industry has become.
So it brings some satisfaction to offer the DHC-1 at an affordable
price. It's also rather entertaining when the opportunity
presents itself, to compare this top grade cord against the elite
offerings available at 10 times the price. You always come away
from one of those with a grin on your face.
WHAT MAKES THIS CORD DIFFERENT?
There are only a couple things that make this cord different from so
many others; The conductors, the price and quality. The
wire used is military grade silver plated copper with a high strand
count where the bundles are compressed under great pressure changing
the round strands to interlocking faceted strands. This is
similar to taking a 4 gauge stranded wire that is the diameter of a
pencil and compressing it down to 1/2 it's original diameter.
The wire is oxygen free in a thick Teflon molded insulator making it
suitable for high voltage applications and audio applications where
skin effects are undesirable. Is this some kind of sacred
audiophile technology... not hardly. The wire is used in extreme
stress environments of microwave transmission, airplanes, NASA and is
typical of what you might find on the space shuttle. Designed not
The construction of the cord is simple and straight forward with a 3
conductor braid with air tight terminations into the IEC connectors on
each end. There is no RF shielding or filters of any kind.
30 DAY TRIAL
Like most of our products, we sell these
power cords on a 30 day money back trial and rarely ever get one
back! Compare them to your choice of $1000.00 power cords and
you'll hear why.
This cord is hand made from our 10 gauge
silver plated copper wire with a Teflon insulator. Each conductor
is sheathed in tech-flex and braided together to form 2 conductor cable
and IEC connectors are equally
amplifier is hand built in the USA by
DECWARE / High Fidelity Engineering C0. It comes with a lifetime
warranty to the original owner. If you purchase one second hand and
ever have questions or technical problems we WILL be happy to check it
out for you and service it if needed for a very reasonable rate.
