M101 cables were meticulously designed to reconcile the conflicting properties of musical presentation, finding a delicate balance between full, round, and balanced sound and the need for speed. Our cables deliver effortlessly detailed and fast sound with a mature, relaxed display that remains smooth and controlled.
Enter the Supernova power cable, which enhances the listening experience further. With the Supernova, sound becomes more apparent, and the separation of sound sources improves while maintaining the musical cohesion. The treble range exhibits greater transparency, offering a natural, fatigue-free listening experience. Bass gains fullness and extends further, making harmonics and textures more pronounced. Performers come to life, resulting in an overall presentation that feels distinctly ‘live.’
The Supernova cable also excels in delivering microdynamic details that are often lost with lesser cables, allowing the listener to take a significant step toward achieving true-to-life sound.
Construction-wise, the Supernova cable features a 3D printed skeleton consisting of 137 individually 3D printed parts, meticulously assembled within a 1.5-meter cable. Sixteen wires, over 90% in air, are twisted once every 4 inches. The assembly is protected by Techflex Flexo® PET cable sleeving, available in standard colors of black and white. Additionally, you have the option to customize the cable’s appearance with any Flexo® PET cable sleeving color of your choice. A selection of available colors can be found here.
Power cables are always assembled with three separate connections (live, neutral, and ground). Supernova contains eight live wires on the inside, eight neutral wires on the outside, and the ground wire runs through the middle. Supernova is assembled with a PVC-insulated ground wire, enamel-insulated neutral wire, and the live wire comes with three options: enamel-insulated copper wire, bare copper wire, and bare silver wire. These three options offer slightly different levels of microdynamic detail, with bare copper providing more than enamel-insulated copper and bare silver offering the most performance benefit.
