Black Star Power Cables

Power Cables deliver energy. But, more importantly, they link to all powered components. This makes them central in contributing, (or otherwise), to the core stability and low noise quality of the back bone of a system. By providing good linkage and minimising injection and proliferation of component power supply related noise is how mains cables really makes a difference and where Black Star excels.

In other words, it is not by trying to counter the gremlins in the AC that comes from street and power station that cables can help – put a single output filter on the incoming of your system to do that. It is how each component in the system relates to the system as a whole that makes a difference and it is here that mains cables really come to bare.

The Black Star cable range has been developed to work a system at its optimum in order to get audio at its best; and getting the power cabling and distribution right that has been right at the heart of this.

It is by reducing the impact of interaction between components power units in a system and reducing the impact of circulating (eddy) and the AC field on the audio ground plane that Black Star lowers the stochastic back ground noise. Even slightly lower nose levels opens up the window of definition and can dramatically increase resolution. And it is in the finer resolution that details reside. This is how Black Star allow great recording to play with all the atmosphere and character that was captured in the recording.

We investigated in home set-ups, live theatre and recording studio to know how power and signal cables interact with equipment and how a cable set up can dramatically alter how realistic a system reproduces sound [click for more about this].

BLACK STAR encapsulates all the gems of knowledge and science we have gleaned over 35 years working with professionals and brings it to you home.
