Matrix Source Cable

Matrix source power cable2022 have been a great year for me. And I have introduce two power cables which are amongst the best sounding cables on the planet! Matrix source and Matrix Reference Pro. Strong words but I can easily back them up with customer testimonials and personal demonstrations. I have worked with audio all my life and have over fifty years experience. I am retired and this is my hobby. Introducing the Matrix Source, and the Matrix Reference PRO Power cable. But, I am more than happy to help a person improve the sound of their audio system because I know what I am doing!

The Matrix Source cable (introduced to the range March 2022), employs a unique design of working from the inside out. The power cable, employs three 16AWG ‘tinned’ copper OFC conductors sealed in a 12.0 MM “Air-tube’. And isolation is further aided by covering the ‘Air-tube’ with foil shielding. Following the foil, layers of PTFE, anti-static and Fleece material. The Matrix Source cable is extremely light and flexible and very easy to use and cabe be run anywhere. The cable is designed to be used with your source component. And can also be used for DAC, CD players, media players, and Pre-amps.

Source cable

TMatrix source cablehe Matrix Source cable has three separate conductors, each covered in a black PolyCast dielectric. Containing 26-strand, 0.25mm OFC ‘tinned’ conductors. The Matrix Source cables, constructed in 1.0, 1.5, 2 and 3-meter length. Also, the Matrix Source cable, fitted with anti-vibration plug bodies, has Rhodium-plated pins for a perfect electrical contact. The Plugs available are US, EU and UK. The plugs comply with EU/US standards. And meeting tamper-proof specifications

Also, for ease of use the EU cable is marked, making things easier. The positive side of the plug reveals a red spot, aiding to quick and correct component connection. As this is very important for maximum performance. And you would be surprised just how much this simple test can improve performance! Please ensure that all your Power cables are connected in the same manner. The “live” side goes to the positive connection of your power outlet.

One of the best-known insulators in the world is Air. And I have been able to increase the amount of Air within the cable by using a 12.0 MM Air-tube. The Air-tube is sealed after the conductors added, and the results are easily heard. Also, as well as huge performance increase, the cable weight is reduced to 480 grams. And as a result, the cable is flexible and easy to pass through places having limited access. Also, the cable conductors are actually resting in a tube full of Air. And this tube of Air prevents the conductors from lying on the floor, reducing vibration. Matrix audiophile Cable

Protection

Corrosion was an issue back in the 1950s because the common insulators released sulphur peroxide over time. And would react with the copper conductors to form copper sulphide—degrading the wire’s overall performance. However, if you tinned the copper wire, the sulphur peroxide released from the insulators couldn’t degrade the copper by forming copper sulphide. And so the method of tinning has resulted in a significant performance and power increase.

Cable testing

Source cable testingThe Matrix Source cable, tested in High-end audio system at ‘Garso Namai’, located Kauno g 31, Vilnius, Lithuania, and lasted three weeks. The speakers used for testing were supplied by Pylon audio – the Jasper 25 MKII loudspeakers. The amplifiers were supplied by Musical Fidelity – M6S preamplifier and the M6SPRX power amplifier. The M6s PRE is effectively a preamp without limits. Its wide range of inputs, coupled with excellent performance, meaning it can form the heart of almost any system, regardless of price. It’s a pure Class A design capable of driving any power amplifier over any length of cable.

Design

The cable is really designed as a ‘SOURCE’ cable and offers better performance when used on the source component. The cable also, handles a much wider frequency range than a regular power cable. And one of the most noticeable difference is much wider sound-stage. Also Higher sensitivity to details such as echos and after echos, reverbs and reverb depths, and allowing all details in the sound spectrum heard. The speed and dynamics are increased, and the music flows in a much better way. After listening to this power cable when removed the normal system sounds flat, lifeless and the music just went back into the wall!

Results

The Matrix Source cable exhibits extremely vivid tone colour, and superb dynamic response and melodic sophistication, harmonic complexity, live-like timbral complexity, and fantastic image presence. Also, the natural live-like level of resolution and excellent soundstage portrayal is breathtakingly musical. And with such a high level of intensity of emotional engagement makes for the best cable experienced. The Matrix Source cable proves everything claimed regarding performance, ease of use, and musicality. Also, having a blacker background allowing increased dynamic range, imaging and focus. The Bass is tight and lively, with depth and width as never heard. And, as a result, detail and micro details are everywhere in a perfect 3D presentation. The Matrix Source cable is certainly a cable not to be missed or confused with a regular power cable, because it just does so much more!

Testimonial

Matrix source power cableI am a guitarist and manage the guitar section at ‘Tamsta’ music studios, and have just been testing the Matrix Source power cable. First I listened to my system to get the feel and then inserted the power cable.  I was amazed how light and flexible it was and thought to myself my god can this be any good. I  started to play and nearly fell off my stool. The sound just leapt out from my system like an angry lion with such a speed, energy and clarity. And I thought what kind of magic and what the hell is this cable. Because this cable, is nothing like I have never heard before.

So, somehow amp got more low and low-midle punch in guitar sound, less noise from amp and some more highs. Overall sound become much cleaner and articulated. I don’t know how it’s possible, but it works =) My guitar had simply come alive with tones and details I have never heard before, and it was like I have just fitted new strings. Also, I have had many guys visiting over the past few years with cables and power cables, but this one is different and really works, and in fact  just mind blowing – Jonas, Vilnius, Lithuania

The Next level

For the person who wants to hear, the very best, I also have the Matrix Reference PRO Power cable, which brings the very best to your musical presentation. The two cables, are very similar in performance, and certainly out perform the majority of cables in the market place today. Strong words you may say but my words are true. And these cables have to be heard to realise how good they are.

Matrix Reference PRO power

The Matrix Reference PRO Power cable (introduced to the range February 2022), employs a unique design of mixing old and new. And the cable brings rich and timbral correct, colourful music to your audio system. Also, the line offers naturally sounding vocals without sibilance and brings an intensified performance with perfect character information—also, significant image presence, allowing exciting and engaging listening. And In addition, many timbral textures present with easily audible overtones and harmonics.

As well as being employed as a power cable, The matrix Reference PRO is designed to be used also for CD players, media players, DAC and Pre-amps

Technique

Matrix wide pictureThe Matrix Reference PRO cable has five separate conductors, including a black PolyCast dielectric around each, containing 26-strand, 0.25mm OTP. And the line is in 1.5, 2, 3, and 4-meter lengths. Also, the Matrix Reference PRO power cable, fitted with anti-vibration plug bodies, has Rhodium-plated pins for perfect contact. The plugs comply with EU/US standards. And meet industrial tamper-proof specifications. Also, for ease, the positive side of the plug reveals a red spot, aiding to quick and correct component connection.

AirGap

One of the best-known insulators in the world is Air. And I have been able to increase the amount of Air within the cable. Also, as well as performance increases, the cable weight is reduced to 480 grams. And as a result, the cable is very flexible and easy to pass through places having limited access. Also, the cable conductors are actually resting in a tube full of Air. And this tube of Air prevents the conductors from lying on the floor, and so reducing vibration and external interference.

System in FinlandHi Paul, and finally got some time to write my thoughts on the Latest power cable. I plugged the cable into my cd player, Cec belt drive (which had my Perkune Reference 2 power cable)  and I was thinking it has to be really good!
Listening time – I picked some of my typical tracks, from the ‘Starwars’ soundtrack, Elvis, Pink Floyd, Diana Krall, and taking some notes as i went along the way. 
The presentation was tipped on the higher side of the midline, the cable was a ‘wow’ straight off the bat, with my friend saying that’s probably the best Power cord he’s ever heard after two tracks. i did notice it had an extremely elegant presentation, transparency and refinement in abundance, detail  and separation of voices and instruments was second to none, and best i have heard too. Bass notes were there but not as weighty as the reference 2.
To sum up, this is an exceptional power cable. Immersing us in the music we put it through, and can’t wait to get another listening session going – Graham, Edmonton, Canada
