Event-Power is our best power cable for equipment needing high current—Event-Power for big amps, Event Power Light for most everything else.
Zu Event-Power is a very high conductance balanced AC mains power cable designed around ZuB3™ E&M models. Event-Power will work for all audio power cable needs, high current amplifiers primarily but also DACs, A/Ds, master clocks, phono stages, desktop mixers and consoles, players, preamplifiers, mic preamps, streamers, signal processors and the like. Low power devices however, like all those just mentioned save high current amps, are likely served better by Event-Power Light.
Event-Power excels in demanding high current amplifier service and it’s there where the technology and design of Event Power will be most apparent. In addition to very low resistance Event Power also features very high magnitude/high conductance shield to safeguard your gear, cable, wireless signals and your AC power from being corrupted by electromagnetic interferences—this cable will not radiate nor let electromagnetic interference. And just like its smaller sibling (Event-Power Light) Event Power does not contain any filtering devices, just elegant power cable engineering, design, build and termination.
You could spend a lot more on an overgrown, under engineered power cable with a dumb price, but then you wouldn’t be able to spend all that cash you saved on a great big pile of new music. Want to know if the Zu Event-Power AC mains cable will improve the sound of your system? Our 60-day satisfaction guarantee makes in-home trial dead easy—and we pay return shipping if for any reason you are not completely happy.
In addition to the U.S. spec’ wall plug, we also terminate Event-Power with country specific connectors like Schuko. If you have any questions about international plug options please e-mail info@ZuAudio.com.
- Copper/silver conductors on all power circuits.
- ZuB3™ balanced geometry.
- High conductance #9 AWG approximate equivalent on both power legs.
- High conductance #9 AWG approximate equivalent on ground.
- High magnitude RF shielding (DC–1Ghz).
- Cryogenically treated Wattgate™ Evo connectors.
- Solderless/sealed termination.
Uniform E&M fields and their relationship to ground give our ZuB3™ power cables the ability to truly improve the sound of most any electronic component as opposed to lesser engineered power cables.
Event-Power mains cable require a good bit of play before complete burn-in is reached, roughly 400 hours—lots of Teflon® equals slow burn-in. We do not recommend any burn-in devices or special recordings. We do recommend music you enjoy, preferably upbeat full spectrum recordings: rock, roots, full orchestra, big band.... For the possible how and whys about burn-in please see our Answers section.
No maintenance is required for the Event-Power, cable nor connectors. However, anytime you are making an electrical connection make it a habit to inspect the contacts and clean them if they are tarnished or dirty, Cape Cod™ polish is one of our favorites.
