Akiko Audio Powercord Aerostar FI-50
When we started developing a new power cable for audio- and video applications, the enormous range of products surprised me. Every audio brand has one of more cables, from cheap ones to exotically priced ones. Is it useful to introduce a new one into this busy market? Of course! As long as two important conditions are met: the cable has to be very good and it must have a good value for money.
With power related products the quality of the materials is critical for the quality of the overall product. Only top quality p.t.f.e dielectric material is used for the Akiko Audio Areostar Powercord FI-50, combined with a double sheath which absorbs unwanted vibrations.
The visible outer sheath, made of Kevlar, looks beautiful!
As you may know air is the best electrical isolator, this is why we have spent a lot of time and energy on developing a unique 'Dual Tube Fillament'™ (D.T.F.™) procedure. In this procedure the nine heavily silver plated copper conductors almost solely come into contact with the air.
With this new technique we exceed world famous brands in the field of air isolation!
A lot of attentions was also paid to the silver plated copper conductors. With another procedure developed by Akiko Audio, called M.S.S.C.T.™, the 'stress', which appears during productions and packaging, on the silvered copper wire is removed.
The cable becomes noticeably more supple and through this process a more relaxed sound reach is eventually also achieved.
The Rhodium FI-50 connectors are made by Furutech.
Cryogen treatment causes the material to relax.
The end result: an extraordinary fast cable, with an open character, of which the natural rendering, the firm low and the phenomenal spaciousness are striking properties.
Our Aerostar Powercord FI-50 can compete with top cables which cost triple as much as ours.
The Akiko Audio Aerostar Powercord FI-50 speaks its own musical language which will surely convince you. Connected to your audio set the cable will immediately make itself known.
It is absolutely not a power cable you connect carelessly, only to wait and see if you can hear any small changes.
On the contrary, the Aerostar Powercord FI-50 speaks a completely different language. Its presence is immediately established in the form of quite an upgraded sound and in the form of a more joyful experience you will get from this beautiful hobby!
We don't use any existing factory cables.
The cable has a length of 1,25 meters, but seeing as every cable set is made by hand in our workplace in Maastricht, you can also order it in a different length. We don't use any standard cables from other producers. Everything is made by hand, from the conductors to the outer sheath!
Specifications Akiko Audio Powercord Aerostar FI-50.
- The cable consists of 9 solid extruded silver 18 AWG O.F.C. conductors suspended in Dual Tube Fillament™ design.
This technology uses two different tubes around the conductors in a natural wave pattern.
This design lowers the resistance of the cable keeping power loss extremely low.
- 70 microns extruded silver over 99.999999 OFC.
- Dual Tube Fillament™ introduces maximum air space around the conductors.
- Insulation; Air and P.T.F.E.
P.T.F.E insulation is superior to all other materials (FEP included!) in that it has very low signal loss.
- Connectors: Rhodium Furutech FI-50 Schuko or U.S. plug and Rhodium Furutech FI-50 IEC.
Both are Cryogenic treated.
- Copper shielded earth conductor.
- Mechanical stretch stress conductor treatment (M.S.S.C.T.™).
- Dielectric constant: air 1.0 P.T.F.E. 2,0.
- Voltage loss on a load of 10A: < 0.07 Volt.
- Kevlar® sleeve, 5 times stronger than steel on an equal weight basis.
Kevlar® maintains its strength and resilience down to cryogenic temperatures (−196 °C).
- Treated with Silver Contact Enhancer.
Satisfaction guaranteed, 14 day money back guarantee.
