Skogrand Cables Wagner SE AC Power Cord Review

 

The Science Of Cables?
Cables (or cords) are the physical conduit through which electrons move. Made from copper, aluminum, silver, and occasionally gold, this conductive path is usually bundled in pairs that are insulated from each other and the outside world via a plastic or other dielectric covering. And in our audio (and video systems) there are many different types of cables (or cords) that have come to be in the fifty or so years I've been hooking up and listening to stereo  and video systems. Audio interconnects come with RCA connectors and carry mostly below 2 Volts worth of alternating current that is the music. While speaker cables can have spade lugs, pins, banana connectors, or even just bare stripped wire; they carry more current then voltage since the connection is from amplifier to speakers and requires more push.

Of course, cables have branched out to include optical applications in the last 30+ years. Photons from a laser or diode replace the electrons mentioned above and can carry significantly more information (density) per moment of space/time than there metal counterparts. This is incredible when it comes to shuttling data across the internet at nearly the speed of light and for billions of users. But, in the beginning (and also the end), all that computer gear (and your audio system) still needs to plug into an AC wall outlet for power. And that still requires a power cord made of metal and insulation in order to pass power safely and at usable amperage.

Clearly, the quality of the power cord has become of some interest in high-end audio circles, over the many years, as well. Audio engineers, however, continue to roll there eyes and contend that such window dressing as so called "audiophile" power cables are still in the realm of the imagination when it comes to audible or measurable results; frequently sizing them up as snake oil. Yet I have been making comparisons of actual performance based on changing power cords since 1980. In fact, one of the first cases where I intentionally utilized an AudioQuest Ruby speaker cable as an AC cord (versus the stock unspecified "lamp cord" cable) produced some fascinating and surprising improvements that were indeed both audible and measurable! Read on, if you dare!

Continuity Experimenting And Exploring
From that first encounter with a better "wheel" in the form of a high quality speaker cable doing double duty as a better power cord came a desire to explore the limits of this simple idea: What makes a great power cord and for which gear in your system? Clearly, amps can consume more juice than a pre-amp or DAC. Should this piece of gear be more effected by changing the power cord? And if it is... why? Well, this curiosity of mine went from an audiophile quest for changing the power cords on gear wherever possible to buying and reviewing audio and video components that allowed for changing the power cord easily via an IEC plug on the component end. Improvements have even reached a point where the grade of the IEC plug can offer minute but perceptible differences in performance in a very high-end system. And availing oneself of the variations in quality of both cords and plugs has been an ongoing process since I began working as Producer and Engineer at Chesky Records in 1990, in particular. As it turns out, the recording gear was all being powered from the wall outlet, just like any other piece of home audio gear. Would there be improvements in the recording quality if ALL the AC cords were suddenly replaced with superior versions? Well, naturally, I got to work on the problem; helped by George Cardas (initially and then Pierre Sprey at Mapleshade). George kindly supplied the first of his power cords featuring high purity copper, benign cotton and air dielectric, and Golden Ratio filament winding scheme to cancel an skin effect and magnetic eddy currents. Its inclusion made for a sufficient improvement that further tests were requested by director Chesky and eventually improved the sound of both live session recording and remastering from analog reel-to-reel master tapes.

As my years of research continued, we recorded many more projects down the street at RCA / BMG Studios. And it became clear how important the purity of AC power could be when dealing in matters of high end audio recording. Notwithstanding the taunts of the engineering staff, I experimented with power cords made of or by companies like Mapleshade, Monster, Sony, BIS, Straight Wire, and found that several things were effected sonically, which could be also be recorded and compared when doing a live session with single microphone feed or when remastering from analog source tapes that could be replayed. For one thing, timbre or the quality of sound that makes each instrument or human voice distinctive in its own right changed a bit. And there was a reduction or increase in the volume and size of the recording's spatial rendering, like using a different camera lens to get closer or farther away from a subject. Lastly, dynamics could be squashed particularly at the loud end or open up to become clear and unimpeded; given the right balance of cord and component.

 

Solution Purity, Simplicity, Old School Hand-Built
When I began my own label, Epiphany Recordings Ltd., in 1994, I had reached a point of knowing how to source alternating current from a DC battery and also +/- 60 Volt Signal Generators rather than the wall outlet. And in the end, a dedicated Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) was used for each component in the recording and playback systems. And the best power cords were also used, not surprisingly; mated to be most transparent (to my ears) with each piece of gear they were being matched with. This improved the sound of my label's recordings immensely; more open, lifelike, and immersive all around. Yet, with improvements in components coming along all the time, it was always clear that everything still starts with the power it is the life's blood of our audio and video systems (both capture and replay). I reasoned that, just like with analog audio cables, where everything happening with the interplay of electrons inside the cable can affect the final audio fidelity, therefore so should this be a factor in dealing with power cords.

Wherever possible, simple seems to be better at revealing subtle and intricate details where an audio circuit or power supply is concerned. And this extends to using simple transformers, chokes, and the highest quality hand-picked parts in a power supply. Yet, even with all this, the AC cord still makes a fundamental performance difference; giving its own audible character (though very subtle) to the presentation. And I confess to having made recordings of these various power cord's effect on audio (and video) over the decades, so as to have an objective and measurable version of my experiments to refer to in the future. It still surprises me to bring out an old war horse (like the first Cardas power cord) and run it up against newer designs. Such was the case when I first reviewed Skogrand interconnects and speaker cables, back in 2013; they distinguished themselves from my regular stable of high-end cables by not exhibiting any real sound of their own, and therefore not changing the sound being sent through them. In this way, audio (and video cables) add or subtract a certain amount of information, thus changing the quality of the signal when used with very high-end sources; these sources becoming slightly distorted in the process the cables acting essential like tone controls!

Well, my review routine this time, as in the past, was to play well known pieces of music from my well-worn library and to see and hear whatever the effects of changing a cable in my various systems would have on fidelity. Now analog interconnects are one kind of cable carrying a low voltage signal while speaker cables are another needing to handle larger currents and voltages to drive most speakers to loud volumes. Digital audio and balanced analog are also different and are built to their own required standards. So why should power cords be any different? And this is another reason why Knut Skogrand did not stop with his existing line-up of cables and in 2016 first began marketing his WAGNER Power cords; developed using the same method of listening to familiar music (as a musician, himself) and reworking the physical layout and material choices involved to produce the cords. With AC wall power, the signal is either 50 or 60 Hz at 100, 120, or 240 Volts; depending upon where you live in the world. These factors along with endless experiments in the deep woodland laboratory of Skogrand in Norway are at the heart of my observations regarding this new frontier in power cords.

Power Cords That I've Listened To For Decades
When I review, the goal is to establish the quality and character of experience that you (and I) will have with a given product given a certain expectation for the money and time spent. This includes immediately, now today, but also in ten or twenty years from now; much less a quarter or half century down the pike. Even today, most cables included with audio and video gear are just barely able to do their job; never declaring the degree to which you might do better with an added purchase (unless it happens to have a detachable IEC cord). Until you yourself try substituting one or more cables in your system with something different to determine if anything changed to your liking, how will you know if it was really worth it sonically, visually, or is merely snake oil? So with that... I launch into a non-stop assault describing what happened when I first (and subsequently) started swapping power cords. I began with two well-tuned systems that I knew well enough to easily describe any degree of observable sonic change within. And here's what I heard:

AudioQuest (Ruby Speaker Cable) My first try at hearing a difference with power cords came as an accessory to a Tripplite Voltage regulator I purchased way back in 1990. Separating this cord and terminating it with a proper Hubbel IEC connector on both ends brought this cord into practical use with much gear in the last 28 years. And it's astonishing how substituting this simple, well voiced, stranded speaker cable can pick-up the sound of any system, substantially, when used as a power cord. It's as though the flood gates suddenly opened and your music begins to take flight; soaring to new dynamic and imaging heights vs. either of the Unspecified (thin or thick) cords that come with your gear, which I've listed (and described) at the end. Quite frankly, I think the Audio Advisor (from whom I originally purchased this power cable option) made the right choice in selecting it as an upgrade. Amps benefited the most when I used the AudioQuest power cord, likely because of the increased gauge vs. the Unspecified cords. But it is fair to say even a small DAC, Pre-Amp, or Surround Sound Processor benefited from a better choice of materials to convey power from the wall to the gear. And if it sounds obviously better, time and again when you make a swap... then it probably is better.

 

BIS Audio AC Aamp
Double Circuit Ground

This Canadian brand has come into regular rotation during my many power cable forays, since 2004. It distinguishes itself with a full bodied bass and solid, well delineated treble that can provide a bit of taming (sweetening) to forward sounding gear. Hear again, the notion that cable substitutions can, in fact, effect sound quality to an extent that is worthy of note adding or subtracting certain information that changes the view on your music is fully in force as the designer and president, Bernard Brien, has spent decades listening to the fine points. In this case, a more laid back presentation comes from the choice of materials, the type of insulation, conductor size and geometry, as well as the type and quality of IEC plug on each end. And this can lend itself to use in systems that have too much detail or sound harsh or aggressive. My observation is that the materials and their design within this cord can offer noticeable benefit when certain characteristics need adjustment in a system where other means may not have worked satisfactorily.

 

BIS Audio AC Aamp

 

Cardas (5-9N Golden Ratio Multi-Core Stranded) Back in 1990, when I first began working for Chesky Records, I instituted a long research project to improve our sound quality through use of better cables. And George Cardas was among the first to offer David Chesky whatever he needed. Throughout 1991, various prototypes were tested and eventually turned into a commercially viable power cord by 1993; as terminated by Kip Doppler. Using these cords in place of the stock Unspecified cords made an immediate difference to both recording and playback gear no matter how new or old. Improvements included:

1) Soundstage specificity increasing, resulting in much more palpable detail with clearly defined instrumental outlines...

2) Dynamics opened up at the loudest end, now sounding much more alive and unrecorded...

3) Micro dynamics now yielded much more minute inner detail in quiet elements such as room ambience, vocal embouchure, finger noise on guitar, and percussion licks on the snare drum and high-hat. The Cardas power cord presented more detail than the AudioQuest Ruby above but was not as laid-back or forgiving as the BIS, being a bit more neutral sounding overall.

 

Furutech 5-9N Cryogenically Treated
Solid and fairly colorless presentation in comparison to all the rest, herein listed. While one would expect this level of performance from a company that prides itself on microscopic details, one has to marvel at how lining them up in just this way can produce such stellar results in an area most often thought of as luxury and extravagant. The use of pure materials, nitrogen drawn dyes, molecular treatment through ultra-low temperatures, and even manufacture of their own magnetically inert connectors and leadless soldier (among other things) give the signal nearly unlimited opportunity to propagate without perceptible capacitance or inductance effects. This neutral, honest power cable should only be considered for the best systems since it is uncompromising and revealing of both great and terrible things in your favorite recordings; be careful!

 

Hi-Fi Tuning Silver
This cable is second to the most recent, Bernd Ahn's unusual choice of materials (Silver & Gold) came to me along with their new Harmonizer; a passive AC treatment system that magically seams to iron out subtle noise, distortion, and interactions between components. Naturally, such a device had to come with great power cord. And so it is, amazingly enough. Similar to the Kimber Cable cord, but made of Silver foil, the immediacy of this cord puts it up there at or near the top of fidelity concerns. But is it perfect? Or can there be such a thing in a field of study so dependent upon personal observation and perceived emotional affect? Either way, if your curiosity is peaked, wait till you read my review of the Harmonizer.

 

Hi-Fi Tuning Silver

 

Kimber (Copper Stranded, Magnetically Balanced Geometry) Utilizing a specially formulated copper that is wound to form a capacitive filter around a central inert core produces exceptionally low coloration from this family of much heralded products by founder Ray Kimber. The combination produces noticeably quitter backgrounds that project tightly focused images into a much wider and deeper soundstage than 90% of the high-end power cables for sale in world, today. Given a demonstration, most will find true satisfaction in the improved sonic renderings, especially given the price points. And extremely long lengths of up to 25 feet are available with Watt Gate Chroma-free IEC connectors perfect for audiophile systems with a pre-amp on the opposite side of the room from the amp(s) and speakers.

 

LessLoss Solid Rectangular Core
DFPC, Skin Effect HF Filtration of EMI/RFI

I spent over a year evaluating this solid-core cable to learn that it's very geometry filters out EMI, RFI, and other interactive noise that comes from the wall power; even noise that piles up from your neighbor's use of their everyday stuff like computers, TVs, blenders, and hair dryers can normally leak into your power feed, contaminated it at times. Whatever the cause, AC line noise can be filtered out in a number of effective ways. And this passive method of noise reduction (like that used by Kimber) affords a new level of fidelity to any existing great sounding system. How great? Consider how important clarity of imaging, depth and width of soundstaging, and dynamic accuracy are in any high end system and then double it; that is, by changing power cords to a dedicated design which actually improves the performance of components noticeably you will enjoy your system and music at least twice as much as before. Try it and see if I'm not right.

 

LessLoss Solid Rectangular Core

 

Monster Multi Core, Multi Strand
When dealing in any cable issues it is helpful to return to the first commercial brand that claimed to make any difference, at all. Between its simplest speaker wire (1980) and the most complex cables developed over decades, solid materials of the right type can make a difference over the Unspecified variety because, apparently, the 60 Hz (or 50 Hz) line frequency is subject to noise, echoes of the line signal, and interactive capacitive and inductive distortion between the wall and your gear that dulls performance in high-end systems. It sounds ridiculous. But when you change any power cord on gear used in a properly set-up and tuned music system, you will hear a difference; a difference that is quantifiable and worth experimenting with to get the most from your investment and time listening.

 

Sony Stranded OFCC
Yes, even Sony puts its name on certain cables, including the power cords used with some ES series components; the idea being that between the engineering and cost one should expect a better power cable to come with the products. And, although thick like Unspecified 2, this is just another stranded cable made of good materials, and it improves the quality of the presentation enough to beg the question, "What's going on, here?" Furthermore, and as you'll see below, it also turns out that the color of the cables jacket seems to matter, as well. Why? Because the materials used throughout any cord effect it's performance; more or less, magnetically or electrically, depending upon how closely one listens for such changes. And while subtle in this case, with the best brands available, a power cord substitution can very well open up a beloved component sonically in unexpected ways that are well worth exploring, regardless of brand.

Skogrand (Stranded) And now that moment you've all been waiting for ... When I substitute Knut's new power cord in place of any of the one's heard in this list (so far, March 2018) there is a tangible level of sonic detail that is revealed in all the most astonishing places. I hear turns of dynamic flourish, space that breaths and changes from piece to piece and album to album. There is the subtle impression of live music coming from real people, individual instrumental contributions that can be counted by number, and an overall gestalt that is reminiscent of what the most expensive systems in the world can create. If you stop and just listen to your favorite tunes, and then swap in the Wagner in place of whatever you currently have, you'll find yourself suddenly in a different world of sonic beauty with lots of passion and vibrancy revealed in just about every track. Please read my Sound Impressions, below, for a more precise listening description.

 

Unspecified 1 (Thin)
This is the kind of power cord that comes in most big box store stuff. It could be any brand, and most any cost, so long as the cord is captive permanently connected to the gear. Thin, nondescript, and under whelming - that's how they look, and for the most part ... that's how they sound and perform. The reason is that it's the last thing to be considered on the way to manufacturing a product. And since power cords don't make any difference, what possible difference could a good one make? But take this ordinary power cord and compare it to any of the well-engineered and sometimes costly competition listed here and elsewhere and you will hear a world of difference you probably aren't prepared for.

 

Unspecified 2 (Thick)
Often better, but you really have to try these thicker snakes to be certain. Why? A thick cord implies thick wire. But all that space inside could just as easily be stuffing and insulation; a dielectric which may have a capacitive effect on the AC power cord and thus actually alter its performance. You really don't know. The results are mixed in any case, so... again, you have to try them before you can be certain what effect they will have on any particular piece of gear. And what sound affect that has on your listening experience may be more revealing then you thought such a change could ever, ever make.

 

Skogrand Wagner Power Cord Sound Impressions
It's been a long day, here at the KSS audio/video production studios. And various cables and gear, speakers, and projectors have been in and out of use from early on. So when it comes to finally sitting down and just relaxing with my favorite music, concert video, internet program in 4K with high-resolution multi-channel sound, or video game, what I want is to pick and use the best gear and wires of what I've heard all day and put that together into one great playback system. And fortunately, as a reviewer and producer, I have several systems set-up that I can refer to which do not necessarily change that often and are a reference point for me and our work, here.

So, that long list of twelve different brands of power cords, some home-made by me and many actual products made over the last 40 odd years, has provided considerable experimentation and comparison opportunities using a wide range of AV gear. Here is what I found out: Amplifiers performed differently than Pre-Amps and DACs or different types of Projectors, for that matter; depending upon their power supply design as well as the quality of the power feed from the road or even from a dedicated AC line generator. And the qualities heard changed as more and more gear was brought together, especially if I was listening in a controlled acoustic environment with an exceptionally quiet ambient noise floor ~ < 20dB / SPL = recording studio quiet and below. Your results at home may be different, so please experiment with your own system to see and hear if anything I'm saying resonates with you and your listening habits.

Well, given both analog and digital sources, including first generation master tapes in both types of formats, and many of the commercially successful albums and songs of all genres available in the known Universe and in my library, here are my impressions of listening to Skogrand Wagner Power Cords versus the other eleven (and/or your choice of brands) power cords: You have yet to listen to your music collection completely until you've heard it through these Wagner power cables. I'll describe a few of my favorite albums which I auditioned to reach this conclusion.

 

A) Duke Ellington Original Album Classics: First Time Meeting Count Basie on Columbia Records (2007 Remaster): CD 5 / Track 10 "Take The A Train" Rehearsal & Alternate Take

Because this is a fairly early Stereo recording (1961), the whole album is great, but particularly this track (10) which offers up a wealth of sound coming from the whole orchestra, all over the soundstage. It is what we as audiophile producers and engineers dream of capturing; and to be able to hear it released in such amazing sound quality is an unbelievable opportunity to stumble upon. Yet it is fair to say that when heard in a good sounding tuned system utilizing nothing but Skogrand Wagner power cords (on DAC and AMP in the simplest version) simply made the music come alive in a way the other cables on hand didn't. A certain directness of sound (lack of veil?) that offered up sound which seemed to come from a much larger recording space than any of my listening rooms was immediately and palpably apparent. And this striking holographic audio picture lured me into listening all the way through to the end of the album nothing but alternate takes and unedited rehearsal coverage that revealed boundless degrees of sumptuous musical and sonic detail.

Quite amazing, really, how brass, percussion, and piano are so well balanced on this album (especially Track 12: B D B) in spite of their physical size differences, giving a surprising degree of immediacy and "you are there" tangibility that the other power cables, though close in the case of both the Kimber and Furutech, did not match when it came to the Skogrand challenge. This was especially true with the ghostly sounds of the band members as they call out to each other and the "control room" in the middle of a take... striking and a little frighteningly real!

B) The Doors Perception Records 6-CD Limited Edition Remastered (2006): CD 1 / Track 6 "Light My Fire"

Count on great oldies (1966-1969) to come through with super music and impeccable sound quality. No one who appreciates classic rock should be without a piece of this complete anthology of 12 CDs and DVDs. And to hear a wonder like this set revealed from the original master tapes and sensitively transferred and remastered, as here, takes you back like getting in a time machine. And once you are in that groove, almost quite literally one song follows another.

Have a listen to CD 2 / Track 1 "Strange Days", and you are treated to unusual electronic vocal textures, unearthly yet conspicuously late 1960's intonation and timbre, this and the tunes that follow are a kaleidoscope of musical and sonic landscapes that stroke your inner soul, especially when those subtle details are fully realized and released from the speakers. When judging enjoyment factor on a tune by tune basis, better power cords matter to me, make a difference in my work as well as my enjoyment. And with this new Wagner power cord, it seems obvious that something has been missing here, almost all along that is now coming through loud and clear. Toe tapping and head bobbing are occurring as we move onto Track 3 "Love Me Two Times", and I'm continuously intrigued by the see-through impression of the presentation; it's just spectacular and unusually seductive sounding.

C) Charles Gerhardt conducts film favorites & classical concerts Various Labels: RCA / BMG, Chesky Records (my remastering), Varese Sarabande, etc. (1959 1985)

Some may recognize the name while others fondly remember these many treasured recordings, most engineered by Decca recording master Kenneth Wilkinson. These two men together produced some of the greatest sounding recordings of symphony orchestras performing some of the finest contributions to that repertoire. When I first started working for Chesky Records in 1990, I was introduced to the many recordings they had created together for Reader's Digest magazine and contained in their many LP Box Sets from the late 1950's forward. These classic "Decca Tree" recordings (a technique created by Roy Wallace) use three Neumann M50 Omni-Directional large diaphragm microphones arranged on a mic stand that places them over the conductor along with two other M50 or M49 "outrigger" mics at the far edge of the stage, where the strings end. Along with some spot mics on brass, voice, and percussion, this combination of five to nine omni-tube mics was responsible for capturing some of the best known orchestral recordings in history.

A few favorite examples that you can easily find and enjoy include, 1) Sea Hawk The Classic Scores of Erich Korngold (RCA / BMG), 2) Captain From Castille - The Classic Scores of Alfred Newman (RCA/BMG), 3) Various Episodes of Star Wars, Empire, and Jedi (RCA, Varese), 4) Light Classics, Vol. 1 & 2 (Chesky Records, Reader's Digest which I remastered), and many, many more. The key to these lively and engaging performances is that the sound of the orchestra is particularly lovely and inspiring; filled with tiny nuances of both orchestration and perfectly balanced with the hall's ambience. And as an avid devotee of live music as well as an audiophile recording engineer (and remastering engineer for the Reader's Digest / Chesky Records items), you get a really great sense of the orchestra's size and specificity. Here again, using the Skogrand Wagner power cord would be my first choice out of the 12 listed above. And I am willing to challenge any incoming power cords (in the future) to reveal more in the way of refined tonal color, spatial accuracy, dynamic explosiveness, and rhythmic propulsion. The Wagner simply let's more music and emotion through!

Expensive Yet Amazing
Let's be honest: the differences in cables depend on how closely you value the details. I can hear a difference and often can record these small changes that occur when one substitutes a good or even great cable into a system. Power cords turn out to be no different and I've spent almost four decades trying to understand the how's and whys of high end cable's performance variations in various systems. But the fact remains that power cords are much like tires on a car... and better tires work to produce better performance particularly on better cars. So it is when I have analyzed and heard cables and power cords in competition with each other for that coveted #1 spot.

Well it's clear that several major brands above have spent time and money making pretty cables, while others have engineered products that they feel actually sound better. But then there are the Skogrand Wagner power cords, which like coveted products in any category of pursuit show off the full capability of whatever you plug them into by virtue of not limiting the reproduction in much of any perceivable way. Amps sounded bigger and louder with great dynamic shading and subtleties heard.

Pre-Amps seemed to disappear and add less apparent coloration to the sound. DACs became smoother with much greater tactility and volume of space presented out of the speakers. Turntables sounded more rock solid with quieter background noise allowing one to hear much deeper into each recording.

Blu-Ray players and 4K Video Projectors for Home and Pro Cinema showed noticeable improvements in their sound quality and the depth of field displayed in their images. Collectively put, as with his audio interconnects and speaker cables, Knut Skogrand's Wagner power cords will deliver the sound quality hidden inside your albums and allow your system to perform in a way that you are going to find very, very hard to resist.
