Au24 ‘e’ Audio Interconnects, PowerChord ‘e’ Review by Steve Hoffman


“Audience has kindly sent me various products to audition. Their Au24 “e” audio interconnects are VERY neutral. Pleasing sound that tells the HONEST TRUTH about what your components really sound like while still being tuneful and musical. The “e” powerChord adds dynamics and the Adept Response Teflon power conditioner is great at cancelling noise while bringing out authoritative dynamics hidden in your playback system. The power conditioner is really amazing.  If I wasn’t already married, I’d marry it. Add the Au24 “e” speaker cable and you have a true neutral, musical presentation!” Steve Hoffman using all Au24 e and Audience powerChord e cables to remix Nat King Cole album to 3 channel SACD.

PowerChord Review by Positive Feedback


“Audience’s powerChord is something special among high-end power cords. Uncommonly flexible, the powerChord is refreshingly easy to install and place. Essentially neutral, the powerChord successfully combines high levels of resolution and coherence with a relaxed, musical presentation that draws the listener into the performance. With its overachieving performance and relatively low price, Audience’s powerChord merits an unqualified recommendation.”

PowerCord Receives Stereophile Recommended Component


“The wonderfully flexible powerChord too, was a winner, significantly cleaning up the sound by lowering the noise floor, opening up the space between instruments, and significantly improving the system’s resolution of low level and inner detail.”

Bound for Sound Reviews of PowerChord


“For a number of years we have had the pleasure of using the Audience powerChord, and under the right conditions, there is no finer power cord available.”
Martin DeWulf : #171 – Jun ’06   Print Version

“The powerChord is about as close to a no-brainer as I can think of; it has a way of consistently breathing life into whatever it is feeding.”
Marc Yun : #170 – Mar ’06  Print Version

“After all these years, still one of the best AC line cords one can buy capable of bringing out the dynamic best in a component, this is the power cord that I go to when nothing else seems to work. One of my favorite cords on line level devices, but works well on amps too.”
Martin DeWulf : #164 – Apr ’05

“This power cord was as consistent in its results as any power cord I have ever used… Clean impact. The fastest transients this side of a lightning strike, as contrasts and depth of field reveal a clarity unknown to most electronics until plugged in with the powerChord… With its speed and resolution, the powerChord was surprisingly organic and color free in its presentation.”

6 Moons Reviews for PowerChord, 2004


“Most competent after-market power cords will clean up the sound, usually by lowering the noise floor. Despite that general but important improvement, some cords then take a step backwards by imposing some measure of tonal degradation. Few of the cords I’ve tried seem to inject a life-like force to the music. Fewer than that improve timing and flow. Fewer still will broaden your musical horizons by rewarding you with depth of stage, all the while giving you insights on performer technique by allowing your gear to better resolve low level and inner detail in a musical, organic manner. The powerChords on my CD player and amp delivered the goods. Highly recommended for audition”.

“… the Audience Conductors and powerChords delivered the musical punch line every time. They even beat out my reference interconnects and power cables. The Audience power cables offer accuracy and musicality beyond their really simple appearance and affordable price.”

On Hifi Review of PowerChords, Au24 Cables


“The Audience Au24 and powerChord cables share a family resemblance-they balance tonality extremely well, have superb detail (again, in balance; neither too much nor too little of it), and they’re smooth. Not colored-smooth, but just-right-smooth.”
