The Performance/Price ratio for this power cord could be used as a reference benchmark for other brands of power cord. Try it to believe it.
The Power Cord Reference Series sound very dynamics, with high and low fluctuations are very smooth. Sound density is also very high, with full body, pure and delicate, at the same time sound very musical. The texture is natural with charming music, rich information of premium vinyl/analog sound. Duelund tinned copper wire has similar sound characteristics as the taste of the original Western Electric (WE) sound. The overall sound is very musical, and it does bring out the melodies of your music to give you a harmonious and relax experience.
My humble suggestion: Reference Series ~ Power cord is designed with a balance Duelund WE typical sound characteristic. It should be picked as a reference power cord in a balance system. As a general guideline, front end equipment could use the Power cord Reference Series and Back-end equipment use the Power cord Signature Series. However, audiophiles could use the Reference series power cord for all equipment, as well as use all the Power cord Signature Series for all equipment too, because both power cords have the similar Duelund WE sound characteristics. However, note that Signature series power cord uses extra 12GA for both L and N, it will give more full body sound, and the overall presentation is better. Disclaimer: All the Hi-Fi setup different in term of Equipment/Speaker/Room/Accessories etc. so, you may get different results in different setup. The above suggestion is only for your reading reference only.
Cable Run-In: Audiolund cables are mostly multi-core design with various combinations of wires. Thus, all Audiolund cables will require long time to run-in. OCC Silver wires are thick solid core wires, will take even longer time to burn-in than Duelund tinned copper multi-strands of parallel thin core wires. The general guideline for run-in time, estimated 100 – 200 hours.
