IsoTek is an English company making award-winning power optimisation products for hi-fi and home cinema systems. You can increase the performance of your audio and video components and the IsoTek EVO3 Elite Mains Power Cable is a highly recommended upgrade.
Before we discuss the product details of the EVO 3 Elite mains power cord, lets review some of the reasons why people like us and our friends at IsoTek really believe you need to seriously consider upgrading your mains power cords.
The standard black mains leads supplied with your audio and AV components is designed to do a basic job at the cheapest price and absolutely no more. It doesn't matter on a kitchen appliance, but they lack the quality of materials and construction needed to protect the integrity of the electricity feeding your system, thereby degrading performance. Outside interference from Radio Frequencies (RFI) and Electro Magnetic Interference (EMI) can't be seen with your eye, but your mains power cable is just like an antenna picking up this unwanted noise. The first rung on the IsoTek ladder is to replace these power cords with products from one of the four different ranges based on the value of your system.
Of course, you will get the best by choosing the top-of-the-range EVO3 Synchro mains power cord no matter what you've spent on your system, but realising that approach is not practical and would simply have most of you dismiss an upgrade, Isotek have manufactured a range of four mains power cables that all help reject outside interference but to varying levels. As you move through the IsoTek range the performance level increases, with an array of mains cables and power optimisation devices to suit any audio or AV setup.
Premier: Part of the Discovery Series and for any component priced between A$500 and A$2,000. A simple upgrade that delivers great results.
Sequel: A step up from the Premier mains power cable and nicely priced. Recommended for any component priced between A$1,500 and A$4,000.
Elite: Part of the Performance Series and recommended for any component priced between A$3,000 and A$10,000. Extremely high quality materials used for construction given the price. The penultimate product.
Optimum: Cutting edge in every area and essential when your system is more valuable than your motor car! Part of IsoTeks Ultimate range.
A Closer Look - EVO3 Elite Mains Power Cord
With the Performance range you will hear significantly better sound quality, with more detail and greater dynamic range. All of your components will be improved allowing you to realise the best possible performance whenever you listen. EVO3 Elite is a quantum leap and improvement over the original model as the boys at IsoTek have developed better materials and production methods.
Construction: The IsoTek EVO3 Elite features seven conductors of 99.999999% OFC, which is then silver-plated. A Teflon (FEP) dielectric is then extruded over the conductors. This 7-core construction is slightly twisted (to aid RFI and EMI rejection) then held in a cotton filler and secured using a Mylar foil wrap before an active OFC braid is applied followed by extruded non-flammable flexible PVC outer.
This construction gives a power cable of exceptional performance and value for money, insuring that you get maximum performance from your audio components without breaking the bank.
Terminations: Elite is hand terminated with IsoTek’s high quality 24ct Gold plated copper connectors.

Obviously a mains power cord is only a part of the solution to improved audio clarity. The ultimate is of course a combination of both IsoTek mains power cords and an IsoTek power conditioner, but starting with the power cords at least gives you the assurance that you have made the best connection to the mains and are minimising external interference.
