The American company Purist Audio Design has updated its Diamond power cable to the Limited Edition version. In the original version, the Purist Audio Diamond network cable has been known for a relatively long time. This time, the updated version, outwardly almost indistinguishable from the original, received, according to Purist, many major improvements.
10 gauge Pure Silver Continuous Cast conductors
First of all, now the cable used a 10 gauge wire made of pure silver, processed using nanotechnology by the method of continuous casting. The Diamond Limited Edition was equipped with Furutech NCF connectors (US FI-50M NCF or EU FI-E50 NCF and 15A IEC FI-50 NCF).
Contego dampening material to further reduce noise and vibration
Finally, Contego damping material is still used in the cable, but in an improved formulation. Purist Audio Design assured that this allowed to further reduce the level of mechanical noise and vibration.
Power conditioning circuit technology
The company’s engineers also changed the power matching circuitry integrated into the cable. This is now a 5-step process instead of a 3-step process. It passively controls, filters and reduces the effects of EMI / RFI (Electromagnetic and Radio Interference).
The result – “The Diamond Revision Purist Limited Edition AC Power cable is open, detailed, and “real”-sounding with no etching or hint of fatigue! It offers dead quiet background that allows every nuance of sonic texture and detail to literally dance across the holographic expanse of the soundstage“. This is how the staff of Purist Audio Design described the work of the Diamond Limited Edition cable.
In the UK, the Purist Audio Design Diamond Limited Edition cable was priced at £4,100.
