- Made of 99.9999% Oxygen Free Copper for an exceptional level of connectivity and durability
- Designed with conductors arranged in a parallel construction with a slight rotational twist, to deliver interference-free power to your hi-fi system
- A perfect introduction to IsoTek, and the impact of high-performance cables
IsoTek’s entry-level power cable, the EVO3 Initium, is designed to offer high quality performance at an extremely fair price. Initium is a must for replacing all of your standard black plastic power leads, which have been designed based on cost rather than quality. The attractively-priced Initium is a perfect introduction to the experience of IsoTek, and the impact of high-performance cables on your audio experience. Now available with a C13 connection, the Initium is now fully compatible with safety and certification standards wherever IsoTek is sold.
As our houses fill up with wireless technologies, like mobile phones, Bluetooth, WiFi and more, that means more noise in the air that basic black power cables pick up like antennae, and that affects the quality of your sound. IsoTek cables are designed with conductors arranged in a parallel construction with a slight rotational twist, a time-tested, effective way to block out that noise, and deliver interference-free power to your hi-fi system.
The Initium’s conductors (the tightly-wound wiring in the cross-section image above) are made of 99.9999% Oxygen Free Copper. The extremely high purity levels of the copper not only make for superior connectivity, but also mean that Initium cables are more durable, and less likely to fracture or degrade over time than supermarket power cables.
PLEASE NOTE: the C13 connection brings IsoTek into line with safety and certification standards wherever IsoTek is sold. There is no performance difference between the C13 and C15 versions.
CONSTRUCTION: The conductors are in a parallel construction with a slight rotational twist. This established technique remains the first line of defence against RFI and EMI rejection.
A) Conductors: 99.9999% OFC conductors offer an exceptional level of purity with enhanced conductivity. They are less likely to fracture (compared to solid core) or degrade over time.
B) Dielectric: Polyethylene (PE) allows greater performance
C) Filler: Cotton filler has been used to give the cable internal strength and reduce microphony. Cotton also possesses excellent dielectric properties, the best of a solid material.
D) Wrap: A paper wrap is used to secure the construction prior to the application of a flexible PVC jacket. The addition of the paper and cotton form a buffer with the PVC so as to maintain exceptional dielectric properties.
E) Jacket: PVC is used as the outer jacket to give a high degree of flexibility and mechanical strength.
