The Reference 2 power cable, removes the ‘Dirty laundry’ and rubbish from the music. Giving a more relaxing experience, and a feeling the music is part of you. The Reference 2 power cable is the result of the past two years of research and testing many cables. Until eventually I found the cables with the best performance and at the same time would be affordable!

The Reference 2 Power cable connections are Rhodium plated, Cryogenically treated components. The IEC connector provides perfect conductivity with standing 16A / 250V /15A/ 110V/ loads. Also, Rhodium-plated pins offer greater longevity and better signal contact. The Reference 2 power cable is colour coded, having dark brown bands complimenting cable colour. The plugs are marked, with a red spot on the positive or ‘Power’ side. And, must check the power socket used for ‘Polarity’. Also the power cable is flexible and can be easily routed through confined spaces. And it is also possible to fit foam pads underneath the cable to help reduce micro-vibrations.
The Reference 2 Power cable allows you to enjoy music and movies with greater realism. And you hear the difference in your system during the first seconds! The Soundstage improves, imaging and focus are razor-sharp and spot-on. The Bass has more depth and clarity. Allowing tones, details micro details, as now heard, whereas before unheard. A really beautiful cable allowing you to hear more of your music!
It is essential to have correct power cable on which to build your system. But, unfortunately, this item is often overlooked. One of the reasons is the importance of a Power cable is not forthcoming. Which can be due to lack of information and seller interest! The Reference power cable will enable you to experience an excellent listening experience from your audio system. The Interference we call noise can get into your AC power and interfere with your system. And, this ‘dirty’ electricity harms the performance of your audio-video system. Also, cable shielding provides reliable protection from Interference.
As well as having over three times the prescribed minimum conductor cross-section area, the Reference Power cable comes with superior shielding. And you protect the sensitive audio components in your system—for example, interference fields caused by current peaks. Therefore, shielding is necessary, and a combination of different materials selected to provide efficient shielding. There are many other materials used for shielding, but I believe the original and best is Air. The ‘Thermaflex’ tubes (supplied with the cable) isolate the power cable from the floor, providing superior performance. Also, Anti-static fluid and cable test certificate.

The first Power cable you fit into your system will certainly improve the overall performance. And if you fit a second power cable you will also experience greater listening pleasure. A third power cable can be fitted but the performance increase will not be so noticeable. You are able to replace every power cable in your system, but the increase will not be the same as it was with the first and second power cables.
Hey Paul, I listened to my sweet new “reference 2” power cable. And It’s so very satisfying listening! I Don’t know what magic you are using, but is it indeed working! The Sound now is sublime!! The Clarity is phenomenal and with just a hint of softness right on edge. Making it the most pleasingly sound I have gotten out of my system. The tempo is silky-smooth, and with the richness of details, you cannot, other than be amazed about what you hear. And the way you listen to it! It’s easy for me to say this is now my favourite power cord, but to truly understand it, you must experience it. The deep bass tones are beautifully defined. And bring the wholeness in the “sound”, where there is a suitable balance between everything in the soundtrack. Truly impressive!
The vocals feel free to sparkle when they need to and come through with Clarity and playfulness. It’s lovely how the rhythms can now complement and flow along with music in such an organic way!! Like you never get tired of listening because it is offered to you so effortlessly. I intake my music with giant strides, Paul! Now with this level of audio bliss! The music has achieved elegance and emotional warmth on a whole new level never experienced before!! Excellent, and what would call authentic reference sound.
