    New review..... but not for my loudspeakers

    I'm a loudspeaker designer..... but loudspeakers do not play music. So, I'm always borrowing or buying other things needed to make up a system. Unfortunately, sometimes it's too expensive, or I can't find something I particularly like. In many of those cases, instead of making do with what is available to me, I design my own. Some of the time, what I design turns out to be pretty good.

    This is one example of serendipity - it's something I never would have believed in, until it turned out to be pretty good. Audiophile power cables.


    Patrick Dillon, weary of power cable swaps, resolves to evaluate Gary Koh’s new Absolute Fidelity power cords, or interfaces, and discovers a renewed enthusiasm for the right cord with the right component. “The Absolute Fidelity power interface made such an instant impact on the sound that I almost doubted what I was hearing… I find myself thinking my next upgrades have to be Absolute Fidelity cords.

    Great review Gary! I've known Patrick for a few years now. He's a straight shooter. Time I gave your babies a try eh?

    I must say I agree with Patrick. I have 10 of Gary's Absolute Fidelity power cords in my system and they work very well.

    I also like that they are not so big, stiff and heavy. it does make them easy to live with.

    Such a weird sounding exchange anyway I agree, Gary's Absolute Fidelity power cords work excellent. Small and light, very practical.

    After Mike's very favorable report on Gary's power cables I have to figure out a way to compare Absolute Fidelity versus Masterbuilt Ultra versus Sablon Reserva versus Cardas Clear Beyond!

    I just purchased my 12th Absolute Fidelity power cord (I needed another one for my newly acquired Studer A-820).

    and to bring this thread (from 2013) up to speed, a year ago I upgraded all the plugs on my Absolute Fidelity power cords to the Furutech NCF level plugs.....which was a noticeable step up in vividness and dynamics.

    highly recommended.

    Will Gary make the Absolute Fidelity power cords with the Furutech NCF plugs as an OEM option?

    the last 2 I purchased I spec'd the NCF plugs, the previous 10 had to be upgraded.
