Audience has announced three new models within their Au24 line of cable products: the Au24 SE MP (medium power), Au24 SE LP (low power) and Au24 SE c7 powerChord AC line cords. These are essentailly three different-sized, lower-cost varients of Audience’s current 10 AWG Au24 SE powerChord.
The new MP, LP and c7 Au24 SE powerChords are designed for use with components that demand lower-levels of power i.e. peamps, CD players and D/A converters. The Au24 SE MP powerChord features 14 AWG wiring and is recommended for use with components that require up to 150 watts of AC power. The Au24 SE LP employs 16 AWG wiring and should be used with components that require up to 50 watts. The Au24 SE c7 is also 16 AWG and fits into the c7 AC connector used on some audio/video components.
The MP, LP and c7 models, when used as prescribed, provide the same level of performance as the current larger and more expensive Au24 SE 10 AWG model. All Au24 SE powerChords are designed to eliminate or reduce the traditional weak points of conventional power cords: more often than not, power cords will behave in a reactive manner and introduce capacitance, inductance and resistance into the electron flow, which will compromise the interface between the component and the power source.
Audience Au24 SE powerChords feature a high-current, low impedance, wide bandwidth design for fast response, accurate reproduction of macro and micro dynamics, articulate bass, superior imaging, exceptional harmonic integrity, lower background noise and additional benefits. Au24 SE powerChords are constructed using the highest quality materials including OHNO high-purity monocrystal copper wiring, rhodium-plated copper plugs and IEC connectors and are available in both US and European (Schuko) styles.
Audience Au24 SE MP, Au24 SE LP and Au24 SE C7 powerChords are available now with suggested retail pricing as follows:
Au24 SE MP, $1,250 U.S. @ 6 ft, +/- $75 per foot;
Au24 SE LP, $1,080 U.S. @ 6 ft, +/- $50 per foot;
Au24 SE c7, $799 U.S. @ 6 ft, +/- $35 per foot.
