Why I should upgrade my power cable ?
There are a number of reasons why it would be in your best interest to upgrade . When manufacturers produce new equipment it is always the accessories that get over looked .
You end up getting a cheap power cable .The common faults of this cable are :
Small wire gauge
Poor quality connectors
Poor quality copper
How does R.K.CABLE improve on this ?
By upgrading your cable to R.K.CABLE the following improvements can be made
Increased wire gauge allowing power to flow and not be restricted .
High quality connectors have been fitted .
Shielding has been provided by means of a mylar tape and a copper braid
Highly annealed copper is provided in R.K.CABLE
What can I expect to hear from upgrading my power cable ?
As with all accessories there can be differences in the combinations of equipment used .
I would have to say that one should expect to hear the following from R.K.CABLE .
Lower noise floor.
Clearer and more detailed sound .
Better treble , defined vocals and firmer and more detailed bass .
Smoother sound .
More dynamic range .
Where should I begin ?
The best place to begin is on your source components such as the CD player or if you have a Home Theatre then it would be the DVD player . And if your budget allows you to go further then the ultimate would be to upgrade all your power cables
What components can i use R.K.CABLE on ?
As suggested in the previous question. I would recommend the components in the following order starting with the source . Here is a typical example in two systems .
STEREO HOME THEATRE
CD player DVD player
Pre amplifier Processor amplifier
Power amplifier Power amplifier
Sub Woofer Visual display being TV , Plasma , Lcd and Projector .
How would shielding help ?
Shielding can help in the following ways . Every power cable radiates EMI which can enter into components and cables in your hifi system resulting in poorer sound quality .
These same components can also emit there own RFI and EMI back through the power cable . This is reduced by the shielding , allowing your system to operate more efficiently .
What is EMI ?
Electro Magnetic Interference or radiation can be released by electronic and electrical devices that can be found in the home . These can be flourescant lights , electric motors .. It is a noise that can be electrically induced or a transient that can be sent through the cable ..
The best defence against this would be to have cabling with high quality shielding and also if needed a high quality power filter .
What is RFI ?
Radio Rrequency Interference is an EMI that is transmited at high radio frequencies
being above 10khz. .
RFI can create noise or dropouts on a wireless system or noise in a sound system .
RFI can be generated from a number of sources such as computers , switching power supplies , indoor and outdoor radio broadcast signals . RFI can enter audio system components and cabling resulting in a annoying hiss or distortion in sound quality .
The best defence against this is to provide high quality shielded cabling for your system
and also if needed a high quality power filter . .
Why is there a tag on my cable ?
Every cable made is fitted with its own appliance tag . This is to show that the cable has been made and tested to meet Australian Standards and that it is safe to use .
Your safety is our highest priority .
Is R.K.CABLE compliant to Australian Standards ?
YES all parts used to make the cable comply to Australian Standards
