What Clients Say About The Product:
"These things do exactly what they are built to do - put no signature on, nor restrict any power flow to your components."
"This is a fantastic cable, performing far above its price point"
"I had to shush my wife and turn up the volume", "Holy Smokes it was amazing. I just sat down and was thrilled"
"The improvement of the sound is dramatic... The space is filled with more music and it clearly gains in beauty, warmth and volume."

There isn't another cable out there that can compete at this price. Who knows...maybe at any price!"
The story of 'The 5'
While ‘The Point One' has been called “simply fantastic”, “a beauty”, and to paraphrase one of my personal favourites "my weapon of choice in a zombie apocalypse" (thanks for that, B.H.), I like to continually challenge myself, and what's possible.
While I am proud of 'The Point One', and happy with its performance being “Impressive”, I continually strive for “Holy Sh_t!"
So, with that said, allow me to introduce you to ‘The 5’ ['The Five' a.k.a. “GODZILLA”].
It features a similar 5 conductor design to the one used in ‘The Point One’, and it also uses 4N Oxygen-Free Copper wires wrapped in a Teflon dielectric, and encased in a heavy EPDM Rubber jacket.
Also, similarly to ‘The .1’ CS, there is additional insulation/dielectric material placed between the conductors to keep them separated, and everything is run a spiral pattern for flexibility.
However, ‘The 5’ utilizes 7.5 AWG/9.5mm² conductors [133 x 29 AWG stranded] which are constructed with a "rope lay" pattern, versus the standard "bunch lay" pattern of the 9.5 AWG/6mm² conductors [104 x 30 AWG stranded] in 'The .1' CS - see pictures above for an explanation/comparison of these patterns. There is also additional cotton run through the middle of the cable, which helps to achieve complete isolation of the conductors.
There are 2 conductors used for the Hot and Neutral lines, making them 4.5 AWG each, and 1 conductor for the Ground.
Some quick math tells you the Hot and Neutral lines are each made up of 266 29 AWG 4N Copper wires – ohhh, baby!
But wait, there's more!... Copper, that is.
In an effort to keep the starting price under $400, the original version featured a Grounded Copper Sleeve only as an option.
However, that went against my goal of providing the best possible shielding at all times, so I eventually made it a standard feature.
This created a bit of an issue though, because the Copper Sleeve is/was over 8 AWG on its own, and if you add up just the conductors in 'The 5', their total AWG (how many manufacturers represent their cable size, by the way) is greater than 1 AWG.
That's a whack-load (apologies for the highly technical jargon) of Copper to terminate, so I had to put my thinking hat on.
In the original version of 'The 5', I used Rhodium-plated Furutech Fi50 NCF copies for plugs, which were absolutely fantastic quality. However, they proved to be very difficult to work with/modify to accommodate the size of 'The 5' with the copper sleeve option, and those plugs had a long burn-in period.
To solve these issues, I decided to invest in some new toys... uh, I mean tools – yes dear, they were definitely tools! ...to modify the Aluminum housings and Gold plugs I use for 'The Point One'.
The Gold plugs made for a much shorter burn-in period and more laid-back sound (easier on your system, and on your ears), and the addition of the grounded copper sleeve resulted in a much blacker background than the original version.
As a nice bonus, by using my existing plugs versus the pricier Fi50 copies, most of the added copper sleeve cost was offset.
Speaking of the price, don't let it fool you - ‘The 5’ is the real deal, and it's designed and built to take on ALL challengers (including zombies).
This cable is, in a word, "GODZILLA"! And when you hear it…
*This is technically the fifth model of power cable I've dreamed [dreamt?] up, and it was originally intended to be a 5 AWG cable, so clearly my household is not very creative when it comes to naming things. For further evidence, you can refer to our pet bunny, whose name was... Mr. Bunny (R.I.P. M.B.)
