Hi, I'm Gerardo Ventura and I believe I have to introduce you in detail this very special product.
As many know, I'm very careful to insert special power cables on my systems because I always noted that a lot of special power cables on the market introduce heavy side effects on sound: they tend to "dry" harmonics of human voices and acoustic instruments, and make the sound aggressive. When the music reproduction is deprived of harmonics, the original timbre vary and the final result has lost credibility, atmosphere, emotion.
ISOL-8 is the firm directed by Mr. Nic Poulson, the English "magician" of analogue amplifiers, already owner of Trilogy Audio, the brand that make amplifications of amazing musicality, just considered within the best today available in UK, like the 915R/995R preamp-power amp set-up and the 925 integrated. Well, Trilogy includes STANDARD in the 915R/995R box a set of ISOL-8 power supply cables.
For this reason, I was very excited to test the ISOL-8 Power cables, and they have met all the expectations.
The IsoLink Ultra Plus provides completness and refinement, dynamic, dimensionality, and breath to the sound without affecting harmonics, timbre, and particularly without being "aggressive". Incredible musical expression and atmosphere! In short, a power cable that is minimal, well built and fabolously sounding. I unreservedly recommend it. For a more affordable model, with great quality-price ratio, please take a look at the ISOL-8 Wave model.
ISOL-8 IsoLink Ultra Plus Power Cable Schuko/IEC plugs
Cables are made by a process of laying up the individual mechanical and electrical components with the outer jacket. The forms of these components are each circular in cross section and leave small voids between the components in the finished cable.
The high peak current pulses the cable has to deliver under typical operating conditions causes the conductors to move relative to one another under magnetostriction. This small dynamic instability in conductor geometry raises the cable noise floor, modulated by the current waveform and degrades performance.
The IsoLink Ultra Plus undergoes a special process during manufacture to fill these small voids with an elastomer to maximise mechanical integrity and minimise this effect.
A carbon loaded polymer screen provides 100% cross sectional coverage to shield the conductions against electromagnetic interference. A flexible synthetic rubber jacket provides the final layer ensuring total mechanical stability with very low loss electrical characteristics.
After careful audition Isol-8 have selected the audiophile MS Power rhodium plated connectors to complete the IsoLink Ultra Plus’s specification.
