The Matrix ‘AIR’ power cable

Matrix AIR - Audiophile cables 2023The latest addition to the Matrix line, known as ‘AIR’, showcases impressive engineering developed with the knowledge obtained from the Matrix PRO. This new cable takes performance to a new level. Whilst still maintaining the same flexibility as its predecessor. Audiophiles are known for their high expectations, especially audio cables. Understanding this, we created the Matrix AIR cable to bring out the fullest potential of the music in every audio presentation.

Matrix ‘Air’ plugs

Best budget audiophile cables Matrix US connection rhodium plugsIt is crucial to acknowledge the significance of a power plug and matching IEC connector, as these items form the foundation of the audio chain. The chain is only as good as its weakest link. And by choosing the best power plug and IEC adaptor is critical for optimum performance. Power plugs are available in the audio market ranging from 25 Euros to 350 Euros. But is there a significant difference between a 25-euro plug and a 350-euro plug?

Matrix weight

The Matrix ‘AIR’ plug and IEC connectors, made from solid Brass, are heavy, and the weight is twice that of a standard plug and connector (14.6 to 30.8 grams) Also, the internal connecting screws are Rhodium plated, like the external contact areas. And the outer body is Carbon Fibre.

Matrix construction

This solution is better than standard cables such as the ‘strand’ type because electrons flow without interruption, rather than jumping from strand to strand. And the undesirable effect of moving electrons from strand to strand results in the loss of subtle information. The most significant benefit of this technology is the equal current distribution throughout the cable cross-section.


Research has shown that low frequencies run faster inside the guide, and higher frequency signals on the surface. Thanks to this knowledge, the power cable includes a special bass conductor of 1.10mm dedicated for low frequencies. Also, a bundle of 170 x 0.15mm (dedicated to mid and high frequencies), we obtain a more balanced, dynamic sound with a controlled and precise bass. Additionally, the conductors are twisted with each other, eliminating interferences and resulting in a more detailed and lucid sound.

Cable performance

The Matrix ‘AIR’ is an incredibly performing cable. We have listened to and tested dozens of power cables over the past ten years, ranging from 250 euros to 8,000 Euros, and all are different. And we can say our preference is the sound from the Matrix ‘AIR’ to any other power cable. The sound is rich, smooth and inviting, and you do not want to stop listening. Your music is transparent, with details that fill the room and a bass that goes to the depths of the earth!
