Isotek EVO3 premier power cable - Any oppinions
English

Hi,
I am just wondering has anyone tried the Isotek Evo3 premier power cable. How does it compare with the budget chord, kimber power chords. Anyone tried this power cable.
Cheers
Steve.

Ok if you are going to spend money on a power lead,at least buy from a dealer that will offer a refund if you are not happy with it, or do not notice a difference in sound qaulity and picture, that way you will not loose out, IF however you still want to purchase a mains cable then buy it for the build quality, me personally do not have an issue with paying a little more for a quality cable over the supplied ones, but I do not expect any real difference from the cables supplied, but as I said get one with a money back offer.

Clearer Audio are very good Darren is a top bloke, and Mark Grant cables are also execellent both offer money back.... Dirol

Be warned though you may get stomped on big time from this freindly lot...... :pray:

RE: Isotek EVO3 premier power cable - Any oppinions

I'm trying out some Russ Andrews ones at the moment. Firstly I need to say that I am using a everyday mains extension block which all the Hi Fi stuff is plugged into, and obviously they are not the same products. 

Unlike some people on here im not in the just use the cheapest bit of tat you can find camp and I really believe in the huge impact cables have on a system.

My honest appraisal is i'm not sure that in my current set up I noticed much difference in the sound. There are times that I do and others that im not sure. A couple of guys have said I need to change my extension block and I have take the advise on board and  im saving up for one of the EV03 blocks , but I am going to do a speaker cable upgrade before that so it may be some time

It looks like it's only been out about five minutes so the chances of someone having tried it are not great. I thought even advocates of mains cables say any individual cable may do nothing in any particular individual's system, so someone else's subjective assessment is pretty meaningless. Given your involvement on isac69's thread, I'm not convinced about your motives for starting this one.

Hi,

Please dont judge my motives. I am looking at getting another power chord and the local hifi shop sells that model, so i honestly want to hear from people who have heard that power chord. I have made mistakes buying things that either I hadn't listened to on my system or havent got peoples oppinion first. In Australia we don' have as many choices on cables. I think that model has been out since late 2012.

Have a good day.

Steve.

Questioning, not judging. 

 

You've been on here a long time and you're a cable believer. You know the best advice you'll get is borrow from a dealer and buy if you're happy with it. If this is a local dealer why aren't you doing that?

 

Having an excellent day thanks, early finish for the first time in months.

Ask the dealer if you can borrow his demo model (if he has one) over the weekend and on a sale-or-return basis.

Hi,

The shop wont let me borrow the cable as I talked to them today about it, hence asking peoples oppinions on that model.

Have a good day.

Cheers

Okay, then are you able to return it if you don't like it, or is it a case of you're stuck with it if you buy one?

I doubt anyone has heard it. £80 for a cable, think I would spend that elsewhere.

i can't recall ever seeing a post where somebody advised this. They do say that as long as it is made to a good standard (quality construction) you don't need to go mad. 

Or perhaps there really are high grade coopper mines, where the miners have to wear shirt and tie.

I'm sure this would have been easier for you to find than me, but there are some quotes from reviews for it here:

You should contact them and ask them what their online returns policy is.

That's not good....have you spoken to the boss?

Both my dealers are happy to let me try stuff, even though 90% goes back.

I must admit to owning one of these connected to Polaris power block.

I had my reasons. Smile

However I am not going to comment on it as such because I have no other items (other than bog-standard power leads) to compare it with.

The Polaris block has suppressed all mains noise (my fridge freezer or possibly the tumble dryer I am informed) that I was experiencing after a room change for my system.

I am not at all sure that the Evo3 power cable on it's own would profer the same benefits.
