Essential Audio Tools Current Conductor
Without noticing we are in a very polluted environment. Everywhere around us fields arise from currents flowing through conductors. Electromagnetic interference is not visible to us, but it’s just there. Each device using energy causes fluctuations on the network in the form of peaks or surges, or causes a variation in the fields in the air. The effects occur around the device itself and on its mains supply, but even far away from the device the fields are still measurable. This can only be measured with suitable equipment, not with our ears.
Common thought is that shielded power cords protect the connected devices better against influences from outside, and that is true. But much more important is that the field created by the fluctuating current inside the power cord itself does not reach interlinks in the neighbourhood. Interlinks transport small signals to devices with a high input resistance, this makes the signals extremely sensitive for interfering fields.
Many power cords for audio purposes look beautiful, just like ours. But appearance is not all! The Current Conductor is a dual shielded cable. The outside shield is NOT from braided steel because a steel screening does not function as a shield, it is meant to protect the cable against physical force. Instead, the Current Conductor power cords have a high density braided copper screen with tin surface plating for protection against oxidation. Under the tinned copper shielding lies a 100% closed aluminum foil for suppression of high frequencies. In contradiction to a synthetic foil, this solution works!
The stranded wires are suitable to conduct high currents without resistive losses (the losses of energy in the form of heat). The earth wire is connected at both sides, the shield is only connected at the feeding side, as it is supposed to be. Finally, we gave the plug a nice CNC machined hood.
