DescriptionView IsoTek Cable Brochure >>
“Amazingly built cable! The build quality of the Ascension Power Cable is one of the most impressive on the market, both in terms of assembly quality and component quality. It is insanely quiet, extremely balanced, completely natural and detailed. In my humble opinion will satisfy the vast majority of audiophiles. This excellent cable will easily fit into my list of recommendations. And yes, there is the pride of ownership in this company, and it is not by grace, it is by right!”

“The EVO3 Ascension Power Cable is a fine power player in its own right…and after 24 hours of running in, it can really deliver the musical goods. This cable really lowers the noise floor and lets the soundstage breathe! “

“EVO3 Ascension Power Cable is not IsoTek’s first cable. Its not even the company’s first ‘real’ cable. But it is ‘born to the purple’; the first
cable that will be taken really seriously by audio’s glitterati. Highly recommended!”

CONSTRUCTION: The conductors are in a parallel configuration with a slight rotational twist. This established technique remains the first line of defence against RFI and EMI rejection.
A) Conductors: 4.0sqmm silver-plated Ohno Continuous Cast copper conductors offer a vastly superior level of purity compared with traditional OFC. Each conductor is deep cryogenically treated down to -196° C. The geometry and metallurgy used in this cable offer superb performance with extremely impressive electrical conductivity.
B) Dielectric: To obtain a dielectric constance close to a vacuum, IsoTek has created a Virtual Air Dielectric offering just 1.0548 dielectric constance. This air barrier is achieved by minimal conductor contact and the use of an FEP (Teflon) bridge. FEP is an excellent dielectric in its own right, with low coefficient, and the first choice for safety in both temperature and electrical insulation.
C) Filler: Clear FEP (Teflon) air tubes surround each conductor maintaining low dielectric constance and cable construction stability.
D) Wrap: Each conductor assembly is wrapped in Mylar to offer individual conductor shielding as well as a further barrier against RFI.
E) Jacket: PVC is used as the outer jacket to give a high degree of flexibility and mechanical damping and strength.
TERMINATION: The Ascension cable is terminated using IsoTek’s bespoke ultra high grade audiophile connectors of solid OFC with pure silver-plated conductors. These offer the highest level of conductivity and quality performance.
IsoTek Ascension Power Cable’s complex construction delivers extended openness, a sound with more perceived micro dynamic detail, and inner space and air between instruments within the soundstage.
