Douglas HiFi Isotek Initium Notes : Isotek have been one of the most recognised brands whose power products have been helping HiFi and theatre systems realise their full sound quality potential. Many of our clients come in and ask "do power cables really make a difference?"... well after an in-home trial 95% of people purchase an Isotek power cable - personally amazed at the fact a power cable makes a difference at all (as we were the first time we experienced the difference). The Isotek Initium is a new entry level power cable that represents great value and helps most systems sound a little smoother yet more dynamic.
EVO3 Initium is IsoTek’s new entry level power cable designed to offer high quality performance at an extremely fair price. Initium is a must for replacing all of your free standard black plastic power leads which have been designed down to a price not up to a quality.
CONSTRUCTION: The conductors are in a parallel construction with a slight rotational twist. This established technique remains the first line of defence against RFI and EMI rejection. A) CONDUCTORS: 99.9999% OFC conductors offer an exceptional level of purity with enhanced conductivity. They are less likely to fracture or degrade over time. B) DILECTRIC: Polyethylene (PE) insulation is chemically inert and has a very low dielectric constant over a wide frequency range. PE possesses a very high degree of stress crack resistance and a low coefficient of friction making it an exceptional dielectric. PE is a good choice for safety in both temperature and electrical insulation. C) FILLER: Cotton filler has been used to give the cable internal strength and reduce microphony. Cotton also possesses excellent dielectric properties, the best of a solid material. D) WRAP: A paper wrap is used to secure the construction prior to he application of a flexible PVC jacket. The addition of the paper and cotton form a buffer with the PVC so as to maintain exceptional dielectric properties. E) JACKET: PVC is used as the outer jacket to give a high degree of flexibility and mechanical strength. TERMINATION: Initium cable is terminated using IsoTek’s bespoke Audiophile grade moulded connectors of solid oxygen free copper. These offer good performance qualities.
