Audience Now Shipping Its forte V8 Power AC Platform
and forte f3 powerChord Premium AC Cord

San Marcos, CA, June 18, 2019 – Audience is now shipping its forte V8 Power AC power platform and its forte f3 powerChord.

The forte V8 Power provides eight AC outlets to an audio or audio/video system. The forte f3 powerChord offers renowned Audience AC power cord performance at a more affordable price point than ever before.

The new forte V8 Power is ideal for users who need more outlets in their system or who wish to upgrade from a conventional outlet strip or multi-outlet extender. Ruggedly constructed in an extruded aluminum chassis, the forte V8 Power features eight hospital-grade outlets that are each separately wired to copper buss bars in a star grounding configuration using high-purity 14 AWG stranded copper wire. This configuration ensures optimum grounding with minimal noise. The forte V8 includes Audience RF filtration to block RF interference and a standard IEC power cord connection.

All parts of the electric circuit have been cryogenically treated along with Audience’s proprietary EHVP (extreme high-voltage process). The forte V8 Power does not include surge or overload protection but it can be plugged into any Audience (or other) power conditioner for additional noise filtration and surge and overload protection.

The Audience forte V8 is available for $895 MSRP. Purchasers of the first 100 units will receive a free Audience forte f3 powerChord AC cord.

The all-new Audience forte f3 powerChord is designed as a cost-effective upgrade for high-performance audio and video systems. The forte f3 features high-purity 10 AWG stranded copper, for detailed and transparent music reproduction with a natural tonal balance. The cord’s proprietary conductor geometry rejects noise while balancing energy flow and ensuring the lowest-possible eddy current resistance.

The forte f3 utilizes the highest-quality XLPE (cross-linked polyethylene) dielectric material encased in a PVC jacket, a combination of materials that combines sonic benefits with rugged, flexible and durable construction. Itfeatures high-quality cryogenically treated AC connectors to ensure the best possible connectivity between the AC outlet and the A/V component.

John McDonald, president of Audience noted, “Our design objective for the forte V8 Power and f3 powerChord was to offer extremely high performance at the greatest value. They’re ideal for those who want to enjoy the improvements in clarity, dynamics, imaging and soundstage reproduction these products can provide.”

The Audience forte f3 powerChord is currently available. Pricing begins at $249 for a 1.25-meter length.
