Evolution-100 PowerKord™

The Evolution-100 PowerKord™ is the first in our range of woven PowerKords. An ideal partner for all components, we find it's particularly well suited to preamps and sources – your CD player, streamer and turntable. Many customers also partner it with our X-Block power strip. Assess for yourself the improvements it can make - our money-back guarantee gives you 60 days to try it out.

N.B. This model is fitted with the High Current IEC connector: to check this is the correct type for your equipment, read 'Making the right connection' below.

The range has evolved

The new Evolution range of PowerKords features Kimber Kable’s new high purity copper (the highest purity ever found in a PowerKord) and our new earth geometry, which reduces the amount of noise induced into the earth by 20 times over the previous model. They really are an evolution of the design that we've loved for the past three decades and are the best performing PowerKords we've ever made.

Evolution-100 PowerKord™ Features

  • Evolution-100 uses eight separately-insulated Kimber Kable conductors, woven together to reduce Radio Frequency Interference (RFI).
  • Progressing from the established 'earth down the centre' woven cable design used in earlier PowerKords, the Evolution-100 features a new, Low Induced Noise earth geometry, where the earth is helically wound around the outside of the weave.
  • Kimber have been working on the purity of the copper wire used in the PowerKords' braid; the new Evolution range features the highest purity copper ever used in a PowerKord.
  • The Evolution-100 PowerKord™ is encapsulated in a Noise Reduction sleeving which uses a combination of two strand thicknesses to achieve flexibility and a soft, tactile feel to the cable.
  • High performance Wattgate audio grade wall plugs and IEC connectors are used to ensure a positive, low-resistance connection to your component.

Making the right connection

Most Hi-Fi and Home Cinema components - such as your CD player or integrated amp - are fitted with a standard 15A IEC socket (110-120v). For these, along with our X-Blocks™, choose the W320evo standard IEC (pictured above, left).

Some high-end manufacturers, for example Audio Research, use a 20A 'high-current' connector (110-120v). In these cases, you'll need to choose the Wattgate W320i High Current IEC (pictured above, right).

Wattgate IEC connectors are designed to make a very tight connection to the pins of the IEC socket on your equipment or on our mains extensions - the better the connection, the better the performance. Consequently, they need to be pushed home very firmly. We strongly recommend watching our instructional video before fitting to ensure your Wattgate IEC is connected properly to the equipment.
