I recently changed the IEC plug on my Ocellia power cord from the stock Furutech plug (no markings on it re model) to a Furutech FI-50 NCF IEC. The FI-50 connectors take a ridiculously long time to break in (500 hours give or take) but this one was already thoroughly broken in.
All I can say is the change in IEC connector totally changed the sound of the Ocellia cord. With the stock connector, the Ocellia has always been superbly articulate but a little lean in the lower midrange/upper bass and with a rising high end, with superb microdynamics but a little clamped down in macro dynamics. With the FI-50 NCF IEC plug, the Ocellia is warmer, more forward in perspective, bigger sounding, equally detailed as before, with superb micro and macro dynamics, and the HF balance is now just right—-not bright, not dull.
For all owners of Ocellia power cords, the change in IEC plug is a remarkably cost effective upgrade in sound quality.
My positive experience with the upgraded IEC connector makes me want to upgrade the stock FI-11M copper AC plug to FI-50M NCF. Unfortunately I don’t have any of those so that will have to wait to another day.
Suffice it to say the Ocellia Silver wire has tremendous potential that is not being fully realized by the stock connectors.
