This will only take about 3 minutes to read, and I promise you it’s worth it.

First and foremost, thank-you to all of my customers for their support, and their kind and encouraging words, both publicly and privately. I really appreciate it. Cheers to you all!

My gear is important to me. I put a lot of time, effort, and money [none of which I want to waste] in to it, and I like to think that I use logic and reason when making decisions about to my gear. I’m sure that all applies to you too, and I think it’s why you’re taking the time to read this [thanks for that, by the way].
I find the gimmick-laden marketing and oftentimes ridiculous pricing for “brand name” power cords a little insulting. I believe in Math and Science, not marketing gimmicks.
All aspects of your gear, from the specs to the overall sound/performance, are designed, manufactured, and stated based on “ideal conditions”. To put it in real terms, if your current [no pun intended] amplifier power cord suffers from a 2%-3% voltage drop [which is typical], then your amplifier is producing 2%-3% less power and your overall performance suffers as a result. There is a direct correlation between voltage drop and power/performance loss – that’s not marketing, that’s Math.
A power cord has two jobs – get electrical current from your outlet to your gear [using conductors and plugs], and keep the signal as clean as possible [using insulation/shielding]. You could distill it further and simply say, despite what some companies may tell you in their marketing, a power cord conducts electricity. And when it comes to conducting electricity, there are two simple and steadfast rules:

1. Higher Gauge = Lower Voltage Drop and Resistance [more/better current flow]
2. More Shielding = Less Interference [better signal integrity]

So with all that in mind, I proudly present to you “The .1”.

This beast of a power cable is 8 AWG, and it utilizes 25% more conductor strands, and 30% more insulation than typical 10 AWG cables [and more than twice the conductor stands of a typical 12 AWG cable, which equates to less than half the resistance].
To put the conductor difference in perspective, a small pizza would represent 12 AWG, a 10 AWG would be a medium, and my 8 AWG beast would be an EXTRA LARGE. That is actually an apt comparison, as the overall diameters of these gauges in a typical 3 conductor wire are 15mm, 17mm, and over 21mm respectively [and the pizza sizes I mentioned are generally 10 inch, 12 inch, and 16 inch - are you hungry yet?].
To ensure high conductivity, this cable features rhodium plated plugs, OFC conductors, and premium heavy insulation inside the rubber jacket, which is also designed to isolate the +/- and ground from each other.
To ensure exceptional signal integrity, in addition the heavy premium insulation inside the rubber jacket, I wrapped a soft fiberglass sleeve outside the rubber jacket which is specially treated to all but eliminate EMI/RFI, which I then wrapped with insulated shrink tube [I don’t mess around when it comes to insulation].
Also, it is worth noting that the plug housings have been modified to comfortably accommodate the terminations [and the 3” finished circumference of the cable], and they have been wrapped with industrial grade heat shrink tube for strain relief and – wait for it – more insulation. Finally, the cable is finished off with a well made tightly braided sleeve.

"The .1" gets its name from the fact that it achieves the nearly impossible - a Voltage Drop of less than 0.1%, and a loss of only 0.1 volts in its 1.5 meter [5’] run. That is based on a full 15 Amp load at 120 volts – no B.S. numbers here.
Keep in mind that a 3% voltage drop is considered “acceptable” in power cable manufacturing, so 0.1% is pretty much unheard of.

Now for the best part – "The .1" can be yours for only $88.

I know that price seems low, perhaps even to the point that you find yourself saying, "What's the catch? This guy must be trying to pull something here."
Well, here's the deal.
You are not being made to pay for fancy packaging - I ship it in a nice solid mailing box to keep it secure and safe from damage, because that's all packaging needs to do.
This letter/ad is my entire marketing and advertising campaign [and it's only posted on free sites], so you're not paying for that either.
Finally, making these cables is something I really enjoy doing and it gives me time to myself [I'm a stay at home dad and a night owl, so I make them when everyone is asleep], so you're not even paying for my time.
All you are paying for is a well-made beast of a power cable WITHOUT a markup that is... if I may borrow from Jackie Chiles of Seinfeld fame... lewd, lascivious, salacious, outrageous!

I was driven to make these cables by pride and passion, not profit.

Also, as a token of my appreciation for your support and willingness to take a chance on me and my product, I will ship it to you anywhere in Canada for FREE. For those of you in and around Winnipeg, I will hand deliver it you within the "delivery circle" - see map. For those of you outside of Canada who may be reading this, please contact me about shipping - I promise to work something out for you.

Regardless of what you currently own, or what’s on your wish list, rest assured that this cable will allow your gear to give you every drop of power and performance it was designed to give you.

Thank-you again for taking the time to consider my product.
