●Principle and structure
A thick 3.5 square PCOCC-A conductor is used for manufacture, all other structures are exactly the same as POWER MAX III , therefore, this is a very high performance cable compared to its price.
PCOCC-A is an annealed version of PCOCC (mono crystalline high purity OFC) that was devised by Dr. Atsumi Ohno, a Professors emeritus of Chiba Institute of Technology in Japan.

An annealing process is necessary for any material to be used as an audio cable. However these materials are affected by this process, introducing unwanted impurities into the crystal grain structure. PCOCC does not have crystal grain, and so there is no possibility of impurities being introduced during the process. PCOCC therefore maintains its high purity even after the annealing process converts it to PCOCC-A.

Consequently, PCOCC-A is an ideal material to be used for cables, because the high purity and crystal structure gives the best conditions for uniform directionality. PCOCC has hard single crystal, but once annealed and converted to PCOCC-A, conductivity improves and the material itself becomes flexible making it easy to use.

PCOCC is a registered trademark of Furukawa Electric Co., Ltd.

We adopted 3.5 square thick PCOCC-A for POWER MAX’s conductor which is specially improved by FURUKAWA ELECTRIC in an accuracy and a density of twist at a maximum level within Japanese PSE (Product + Safety + Electrical appliance & materials) conformity specifications.

This improved accuracy and the density of the twist of the conductor brings sonic benefits, images become clearer, holographic effects and a spatial representation is dramatically improved.



Ground breaking cable structure by employing new materials

The cable sheath of POWER MAX III is a special one which contains Tourmaline, developed and adapted by us.

Tourmaline is ore with slight potential, it generates negative ions which react on voltage and electrical waves, it also prevents and removes static electricity.

By adopting This sheath containing Tourmaline for the outer sheath, POWER MAX III generates negative ions when AC power is supplied, and prevents/eliminates the generation of static electricity to create a clearer power supply.

We also adopted a natural cotton as a damping material and creating a rapid improvement of the audible sense of relief by installing the air layer by cotton, and high sound quality with a feel of distinguished energy is created by the removal of electrostatic by using natural materials.

For shielding, we applied a current copper foil sheet that creates a 100% shielding effect.

This prevents outbreak of stray electric current which realizes a much high quality sound with increased transparency and silence. Furthermore this eliminates the noise found in many other power cables that have meshed shielding (full of openings) that causes a straying electric current as well.

On the outside of POWER MAX II, we adopted a CSF tube (Mesh tube which contains a high level of carbon) to further improve shielding effect and the signal to noise ratio.




For POWER STANDARD we also include a high quality hospital-grade power plug of Matsushita Electric Co. and an audio-grade gold plated connector of Furutech - this achieves maximum conductivity and sound quality.

We also supply a bulk cable POWER STANDARD 5000 used for POWER STANDARD (50m/spool)
