We have teamed up with our friends from Kevalin Audio to bring you an exciting competition and a chance to win one of two ZL5000 15A conventional 1.8M power cords. Alan Sircom reviewed this in Hi-Fi+ issue 180 (pages 91 & 92). He noted that Allnic Audio’s ZL-5000 power cord uses a double shield of aluminium and nickel-plated alloy and copper mesh rather than conventional screens and shields for the power cords. “This was chosen,” says Alan, “because while copper or silver are fine electrical shields, they are still influenced by magnetic fields; this three-metal shield is less magnetically prone.”
He went on to say, “The ZL-5000 maintain a very deft touch on the music, with a strong accent on detail resolution, but not at the expense of warmth or musicality. What I found particularly attractive was the way it could help unmask subtle microdynamic cues in the musical performance, ones that usually lurk at or just below the sonic waterline”.
He concluded the review by saying, “It’s hard not to be impressed by their innate sense of rightness, making the sound of a good system really come to life, but without over-exaggerating anything.”
