rated by listening:
there are not many power cables that can offer what this one does, the music has a perfect bass foundation just because there are wires like concrete, the music has a drive and is really fun, the bass is like from the grave, it hits you with incredible force! I highly recommend it for systems where there is a weaker amplifier and needs help in dynamics and bass, for high-end filters and reference-level subwoofers! It has dynamics, drive, passion for the game... for me, it is among the three best power cables I have on offer!!
you can also find all tests and presentations of Neotech cables on our YouTube channel Audionirvana /with English subtitles/.
UP-OCC – pure monocrystalline metal structure without typical crystals on the surface, the highest level of quality of current development, technological know-how of Neotech Dr. Fire.
OCC – a technologically modified conductor in the form of cold rolling of OFC metal and its densification, reduced by up to 80% of the original thickness, followed by surface polishing of the conductor and treatment in a cryo chamber.
OFC - a drawn conductor that has a long grain structure, i.e. about 50x better sound conduction structure than standard manufacturing process
The concept of a flat conductor - as is well known, sound propagates through the surface of the conductor, and if we want as many surfaces as possible for better transmission of all frequencies, in the case of a round conductor, we must add the number of conductors or increase the diameter of the conductor. This brings problems, higher cost of wires, thicker cable with the need for better shielding. Neotech came up with an elegant flat wire solution three years ago. One flat wire is about 2.80 - 3.24 of a standard 0.80 - 1.20mm thick round wire.
I recommend reading:
This industrial company was founded by Professor Ohno of Chiba Institute of Technology in Japan in 1991 in Taiwan. When he introduced to the hifi industry a standard in the form of monocrystalline conductors of silver and copper known as UP-OCC /pure conductor without typical crystals on the surface created by pulling the conductor during production/, then technologically modified originally round conductors, star or twisted in a spiral, to improve of sound performance / better dynamics and behavior of silver on the bass/ and thereby increasing the transmitted area of the sound. It is also worth noting the latest flat conductor manufacturing technology /many times increasing the transmitted area of sound compared to a round conductor by up to 3.24 times/. During the following period, new conductor geometry procedures were introduced /randomly braided conductors in the cable body, active shielding of the conductors by a system of gradual application of newly developed materials /teflon, carbon/ and then by vaporizing copper and silver foils with a thickness of several microns on the cable body as a secondary protection of the conductors . Currently, a number of global brands such as Siltech, Audioquest, Atlas cable, dozens of others buy wires from this technology company. These wires are used in the highest models of their production sold for tens of thousands of euros.
So I believe that this company is a world leader in new technologies in the hifi industry and should not escape your attention. I am proud to represent this industrial brand here in the Czech Republic. Today, it offers dozens (up to a hundred/ in total) of cables by the meter and is thus the largest producer of these cables in the world. I will be happy to present all the cables to you gradually on the YouTube channel, in the newsletter for registered customers, and offer them here for testing and sale.
NEOTECH NEP-3160 - copper monocrystalline solid conductor UP-OCC 3.00 mm²
Neotech's NEP range consists of high performance cables using only UP-OCC copper conductors of extreme purity. The NEP-3160 is therefore no exception with 3 14AWG (3.00mm²) copper UP-OCCs. The insulation and shielding of the cable is made of PVC CL3, followed by aluminum foil and finally braided OFC copper. These 3 layers make it possible to significantly reduce interference that could degrade the signal and thus the sound restoration.
This cable, sold by the meter, will therefore allow you to design high-quality power cables, which are also perfectly adapted to carry high currents for demanding HiFi systems. In addition, the excellent quality of electrical signal transmission that these cables allow allows to offer a very beautiful sound restitution by obtaining dynamics.
