The Reference Slimline power cable, offers a power cable providing 95% of the Reference performance. But, with, a considerable price reduction. And, aimed at the person who is starting in their audio journey. Fundamentally, the output of a hi-fi system is nothing other than modulated household electricity. So this should get to the device with the minimum impediment. Extreme current peaks are the most significant challenge for mains connection cables. They are caused by the connected devices as they convert alternating to direct current. These extreme peaks cause a whole series of unwanted effects, which is why the power cable is so important.
The Reference Slimline
One of the reasons is that the importance of a Power cable is not forthcoming when you are buying. Also, due to lack of information and seller interest!

Every person who has heard this new power cable agrees and, delighted with the result. Definitely, the best value for money in the industry!

The Reference ‘slimline’ power cable provides a blacker background with an increased dynamic range compared to a standard power cable.
The sound stage is vast, with Imaging and focus razor-sharp and spot-on. The music becomes transparent, presenting greater detail and depth to the musical content. The Reference ‘Slimline’ power cable brings a solid feel to your music and controls bass perfectly.
There is no bloom or boom, and the bass is tight and lively. The detail and micro details are more apparent. And, allow increased energy and speed, with a new level of excitement in your music. And, benefits heard at both ends of the scale – in the sheer impact that comes with real instrumental presence and explosive dynamics, and the colour, texture and intimacy that brings a voice or solo instrument to life. The result is the most musically coherent and involving performance you’ll ever have heard from your system and recordings.
Consistency of design and materials across the Reference Series means you can create a prioritised, no compromise system-wide cable solution. From the wall socket to loudspeaker terminals, each link in the chain specifically optimised for a purpose, and finally unleashes your equipment’s full performance potential. And, for the enthusiast, the cable is also available in Black.
There are many misconceptions about power transmission and power quality that make it difficult for some people to understand why a power cord makes a sonic difference. The first question is – do power cables make any difference at all? There is no sense in talking about operation theories if we can’t agree that there is an audible effect. Most of the thousands of people who use power cables started as sceptics and have answered that question for themselves and have found that power cables and power conditioners can profoundly impact performance.
