Gutwire power cable conductors are made of high purity oxygen-free copper. Noise floor and background noise are reduced to a minimum by utilizing multibple shielding. The lower the noise floor, the clearer you can get the essence of music. Multiple shielding is used to reject most of the EMI and RFI.
Did you know that the tightness of the jacket materials could change the sound? Gutwire jacket materials are designed to be loose. After numerous experiments, the tightness of the jacket materials does affect the sound significantly. If the jacket materials fitted the cable very tightly, the sound of music would have been very constraint and the "vividness" of music would have dissappeared.
"I didn't expect much when I swapped the [Gutwire] B-16 for the IEC cord that came with the Arcam Solo Music CD receiver, but things immediately clicked more into audible focus, just like that moment in an eye exam when the optometrist finally swaps in the correct lens. I have used the [Gutwire] B-16 as the default power cord for all the CD receivers encountered in this quest. Recommended, and $$$ for high value." - John Marks, Stereophile October 2008, Recommended Components Issue, Vol. 31 No. 10
