Chord Sarum Tuned ARAY power cable, from £1100
We’ve heard all the arguments about beginning any cable upgrade by changing the power cables first of all. The first thing we put in though were the Tuned ARAY interconnects, that was astonishing. Then we put the Tuned ARAY power cable in and everything the interconnect did to improve the system happened all over again!
Forget the arguments, skip the debate, and sit down and have a listen.
The thing is that we are more than happy to let you have a listen, here or at home, and the Sarum Tuned ARAY mains cable deserves a listen.
The improvements that the Sarum Tuned ARAY power cable can make are every bit as profound as the Tuned ARAY interconnect cables. That same extraordinary drop in noise, that allows micro-dynamic shifts and the last few harmonics of a fading note to be clearly heard. That same sense of control and definition and a clarity that lets instruments and voices speak clearly and in their own space.
We think you should try the Tuned ARAY interconnect first, and when you have you’ll be in a position to hear and understand just what an extraordinary cable the Sarum Tuned ARAY power cable really is.
Like the other Sarum cables, the Sarum Tuned ARAY power cable uses micro polished silver-plated conductors and gas foamed PTFE, along with the most efficient shielding we’ve yet used. The live, neutral and earth conductors are all separately shielded and twisted around each other to minimize mechanical noise. Once again though, it’s the Tuned ARAY addition to what was already a remarkable cable that lifts the performance to a completely new level.
We chose the gold-plated Furutech plugs after a lot of testing. Both the mains plug and the IEC are built to an extremely high standard and we felt particularly that the terminations within the plugs were of a very high standard. We can also supply the Sarum Tuned ARAY power cable fitted with gold-plated Furutech Schuko connectors.

We know all the arguments about power cables, but it is important to understand what power cables can do, and that is respond to local conditions (as in the back of your hi-fi system). This is a place where shielding, particularly high frequency effective shielding can make a profound difference. On top of that there’s Tuned ARAY to consider as well. All we can say is listen. We do feel that if you’re going to investigate Tuned ARAY, the best place to start is with the interconnects. Don’t underestimate the power cables though, profound is not a word to be used lightly.
