    Aaudio Imports Releases the KRAKEN, New Reference-Level Power Cord by Stage III Conce

    Handmade Audiophile-Grade Cable with Large-Gauge Silver Ribbon Conductors
    Helps Music Breathe with Effortless Clarity and Resolution

    INTERNATIONAL CES 2012, LAS VEGAS, Jan. 10, 2012
    ó Aaudio Imports, a leading supplier of world-class high-end audio products, introduces the A.S.P. KRAKEN Reference Power Cord by Stage III Concepts, a world-class innovator in audio cable design, at CES 2012.

    Stage IIIís KRAKEN Power Cords are handmade masterpieces of connectivity, representing the culmination of 16 years of research, materials evaluation, testing, and listener feedback. The audiophile-grade cable uses silver ribbon conductors with air dielectrics to provide audio systems with remarkable, undeniable improvements in sonic performance. Delivering a breakthrough in AC delivery, KRAKEN power cords impart to musical reproduction a sensation of rock-solid image stability and natural flow. As if powered by limitless energy, sounds breathe with effortless clarity and absolute resolution
    Named after a mythological sea monster of gigantic proportions, KRAKEN cables can be used with all types of audio and video equipment. They enhance the performance of a wide range of audio components, regardless of power requirements, while offering an unprecedented level of precision and control.
    In developing the KRAKEN, Stage III created entirely new palladium/silver AeroStrand Ultraô ribbon conductors. The KRAKENís six slow-extruded AeroStrands are larger gauge than usual, cryogenically tempered, and so efficient they can carry more than 40 amperes without the bulk and stiffness of more traditional wires with equal current capacity. The high-efficiency AeroStrands also offer lower resistance and better heat dissipation than traditional stranded cords.

    KRAKEN cords also employ silver ground wires individually shielded with silver-plated braids, impenetrable radiation-proof shielding using an exclusive High Density Alloy foil, air dielectrics with FEP (fluorinated ethylene propylene) Teflonģ air-tubes, and high levels of mechanical damping. The unique wire geometry features multi-layer construction with a silica/ceramic/ferrite mechanical damping and shielding layer.

    The KRAKENís custom carbon fiber plug housings, also handmade and polymer-filled, help eliminate external vibrations. Exclusive Hyperion Ceramic plugs use a palladium-plated silver/copper alloy for their electrical contacts. The result is definition, clarity and a noise floor never thought possible, even without the use of a dedicated power conditioner.

    Stage IIIís KRAKEN Power Cords are available now from Aaudio Imports, among other select dealers, at a suggested price of $8,400 for 1.5 meters with each additional 0.5 meter costing $2,800. Discounts are available on a sliding scale ranging from 6 to 24 percent, depending on amount. They can be seen with other outstanding products represented by Aaudio Imports at the Venetian Hotel, Suites 30-121 and 30-122, during CES.
