Audience today announced the introduction of its forte f5 powerChord, offering outstanding performance and greater value in a true high-end power cord. The new forte f5 is designed to provide improved audio quality and a lower noise floor, and enable a significantly improved sonic presentation.
The forte f5 builds upon more than two decades of Audience power cord design. It utilizes a unique six-conductor geometry that provides superior EMI and RFI noise rejection, for a quieter listening background. The f5 is constructed from high-purity 10 AWG aggregate stranded copper, to deliver an exceptional degree of low-level musical detail. In addition, the f5 utilizes an ultra-high-quality XLPE (cross-linked polyethylene) dielectric material. It is designed and built to the highest manufacturing standards.
In addition, the forte f5 is cryogenically treated using Audience’s proprietary process, which results in higher conductivity and improved signal transfer.
John McDonald, president of Audience noted, “Our new forte f5 is an ideal upgrade for high-quality audio and home entertainment systems. In designing the f5, our goal was to offer a power cord that would facilitate exceptional resolution, transient response and clarity, along with exceptional noise rejection, at a competitive price point in its category.” McDonald noted, “the forte f5 can facilitate significantly improved sound quality compared to other designs, and especially when upgrading from a stock power cord.”
The Audience forte f5 is currently available in US, European and UK configurations with prices beginning at $649 US suggested retail for a 1.5-meter length. Please consult an authorized Audience dealer for pricing on additional lengths and configurations.
