Condition: Mint with Original Packaging (8.5/10)

RM 2,200    

Contact: Cheah, 0122010263

Reason For Sale: Downsizing to fewer components so have an extra power cord. Cardas' former flagship power cord with the magical Cardas midrange.

Details:

The Golden Reference power cord provides the ultimate current flow, excellent isolation between components and broad band power line filtration. It is shielded and relatively flexible for its size.

Reviews

Stereophile

the Cardas Golden Reference made a consistently identifiable improvement in the sound of the relatively humble Ayre amp: Silences were silenter, sonic events were clearer, and the whole music-making shebang had an altogether more natural feel. Now I've had a chance to use the Cardas Golden References with other products in my system, and I'm impressed all to hell and back. Used to power my Lamm ML2.1 monoblock amplifiers, the Cardas cords did the same tricks as with the Ayre. Used to power my Quad ESL-989 electrostatic loudspeakers, the Cardases made their presence more well known. Deeply pitched strings....had noticeably more thrumm and were easier to feel.

My system's sense of scale and ultimate stage width also seemed to increase when I used the Cardas cords on my Quads, the players in the last rows of second violinists on one side and the double-bassists on the other appearing more spread out from one another.


Musical feel increased appreciably, as did the sense of musical flow and momentum in very simple music

The Cardas Golden Reference power cords made enough of a performance difference to be considered virtually essential.

the sound of the Cardas has to be described as beautiful. The reason why we sat down again and gave a listen to the Golden Reference was how it rendered the duel of choirs in Veni Veni Venias (Carl Orff, Carmina Burana, TELARC). Not only were we listening to two choirs (it is not difficult to hear this as one is on your left and the other on your right) but it was stunning how the Cardas was able to subtly delineate individual singer within each choir. The Cardas’s soundstage is a very deep one; in our interconnect and speaker cables review we suggested that they made it perhaps too deep to the extent of being unrealistic – with the Golden Reference power cord the depth is without a hint of this ´unreality´ and keeps the right amount of scale.


the biggest strength of the Cardas is how it treats both male and female voices. We liked the textural richness of Johnny Cash, the sweet delicacy of Jacintha, the intimate seduction of Rebecca Pidgeon, the magic of Dave Gahan or the raspy smoothness of Dave Mustaine of Megadeth. This already indicates that, first, the Cardas Golden Reference plays from the midrange, second, it adds something to the sound. This addition, however, is much welcome, as the heart of it is in sweetness, rich tonality and an analogue-like sparkling clarity.

the Cardas is a must for anyone who is serious about the music with prevalence of strings, being bowed, hammered or plucked. Thanks to its hint of sweetness and tonal wizardry the sounds of strings are turned into enticing and delicate events that nail you to your listening seat for hours
