Dark Energy 9 Power Cord
The Dark Energy 9 Delivers Power and Life To Any Audio Component
Most people equate larger gauge power cords with more current delivery. While this is true the Dark Energy 9 also delivers more music. Like it's sibling, the Dark Energy 14, the cable was designed for maximum musicality and it delivers. Our special combination of conductors delivers more resolution, inner detail and low end impact while delivering the same musical life and energy of the Dark Energy 14. You may find yourself using the 9 on your source gear just for it's sheer resolving power. However, the 9 really shines on power hungry components.
Our Dark Energy 9 power cords make use of a special combination of wire that is the equivalent to 9 gauge for each conductor. The wire alone delivers a very musical performance, well beyond it's price point. But we didn't stop there.
Inside the component end of each of the rhodium plated copper connectors is the equivlent of 2 sets of Sonic Tonic embedded in a vibration damping epoxy like material. That's right. There are 2 sets of Sonic Tonic inside each Dark Energy power cord.
Not Only Reducing Noise, But Preserving Subtle Phase Cues
While the Dark Energy cord is extraordinarily good on it's own. After adding the Sonic Tonic to the inside of the connectors, performance goes to unprecidented levels for an audiophile power cord at this price. Yes there is an extreme blackness of background, but there is even more. The minute phase relationships that make up textures and harmonics are preserved to a degree that only the most expensive power cords and equipment have been able to achieve up until this point. If your components are capable of reproducing these cues, you will know it when you try the Dark Energy 9. Suddenly you move beyond air, space, and soundstage, and you start hearing delicacy, texture, complexity and dynamics like never before. This is no ordinary cord...
I know I know, you've heard this before, only to have your expectations unmet by the actual performance. That is why we will offer you an in home audition of up to 3, 2 meter Dark Energy cords so that you can come to your own conclusion on our statement. That's right, borrow up to 3 2 meter cords to evaluate in your own system.
How Do I Get An In-Home Audition?
It starts by contacting us. We will have a brief conversation about your audio system, then will need to collect the following information:
- Name and address
- credit card (for security purposes) - We will not charge your card initially. We put a hold on the funds to secure our investment. A hold is not a charge, and it does not accrue interest. It merely protects us from shenanigens...
What will I hear?
You will be immersed in the recording space. You will feel the energy and emotion of the music pouring out of your system like never before. You can't help but sit up, listen and say "wow"!
- Dynamics - Dynamic attack is vivid, real, without sounding hard
- Vocals - Oh the vocals. One of this cord's stronger abilities. You can feel the emotion in the vocals, male or female. Silkiness, inflections and the subtle textures that give one goosebumps.
- Bass - bass is powerful, harmonically rich (especially acoustic bass) deep and quick.
- Textures - Another strong suit of this cord. Subtle textures that take musical playback from hifi to "holy shit" are there, and audible without straining to hear.
- Phase information - Phase information is better presented. Close harmonic structures are more distinct, yet presented as an organic whole. Reverb comes through more clearly, and the sense of acoustic space is fantastic.
- Energy - The Gestalt of the Dark Matter 14 power cord can be summed up in that it helps components capture and recreate the energy and emotion of the performance like no other cord in it's price range.
