For the past 3 years Mark Tunis in Bradenton, FL has been slowly gaining a reputation in the audio world for making cables that are competing with some of the best being offered by major manufacturers at any price.

All of his cables are made by hand…being offered here is ‘The Black Shadow’ a custom made silver/rhodium/carbon fiber Power cord 2 meter (other lengths available)

This is a 9 AWG HIGH CURRENT cord which is perfect for Power conditioners and High current amps

In his own words:

The Black Shadow is my finest power cord.

It was designed and built with absolute quality and performance and High Current as the only criteria. The Black Shadow is designed with four ground conductors hand woven into and around the hot and neutral conductors.

This is state of the art noise rejection. The hand braided design naturally repels noise and inductance, and these dual ground conductors actively draw away RF interference, magnetic inductance, and all electronic noise straight to ground.

This is a superior solution to metal or braided shields that are known to collapse the sound field. The Black Shadow features Carbon Fiber billet plugs Rhodium plated. These provide electrical shielding at the critical area directly behind your components.

Acrylic plugs can not do this. The Silver ghost cord will give your components a black as night noise floor. These cords feature 9 AWG gauge, Aero space Silver plated wire.

You can not source better power cable wire than this. They are composed of over 1000 individual strands of silver wire for incredible flexibility.

Over 80 ' of wire used in construction.

Each conductor is wrapped in premium grade TechFlex jacketing for an high end appearance and long service life. Each cable is hand braided before being mated to the Connectors.

Top of the line Power Cord

Patented woven 8 conductor silver wire.

First of all, there is no other cable on the market at this price point that even comes close to these. No hype, No snake oil, No voodoo. Pure, simple, outstanding cables with performance approaching the very best and most expensive audio cables on the market, for a fraction of the price. Well below what audiophiles normally expect to pay for superbly engineered and hand crafted components. Best Value of any cables available. All my cables are made by hand by me one at a time, I'm a small operation working at my home, with a small markup (40%) including labor. Unlike large cable manufactures which have a large overhead and typically charge 16 - 20 times cost. My mission is to the finest audio components, of the finest materials, at a reasonable price.

The wire is MIL spec aerospace stranded silver plated copper wire, silver being the best conductor of electricity, Teflon insulation is very close to air resulting in very low capacitance which makes the cable suitable for any audio component as it will not contribute to instability, or absorb the signal. Teflon insulation is very thin resulting in a cable that is lightweight and flexible.

This cable will not stress the jacks on your components, but is very large gauge.

This configuration provides incredible imaging and detail across the entire audio spectrum, deep, tight, powerful bass, sweet transparent mid-range smooth and linear high frequency response. This cable provides incredibly low resistance.

For the braid, referred to as "Milloit braid," after Henry Albert Milloit who invented and patented this type of braid for the Perfection Mica Company back in 1960 (see patent no. 2,958,724). Kimber Kable was able to secure a patent on the exact same braid, which they trademarked as Orthogonal GyroQuadratic. However that patent is unenforceable due to the prior Milloit patent.

Carbon Fiber/Solid housings, Rhodium conductors.

External housings are made with Steel alloy cut from a solid block by CNC machine. Surface housing is carbon fiber and offers effective electromagnetic shielding. Conductors are Rhodium plated copper alloy. Rhodium plate processing brings silk like dedicated sound characteristics, which is very close to the sound characteristics of pure silver, while rhodium will not oxidized like silver which will look and sound great for years.
