MCRU have asembled a DIY mains lead set to out perform designs costing 3-4 times more. We have used this cable and connectors and trust us, it's money well spent.
1 metre of the "new" Furutech FP-S20N mains power cable, more about the design is below, its a unique construction and sounds superb.
Furutech FI-1363 pure copper mains plug with heavy duty cable clamps and tightly toleranced pins for a tight fit in the wall socket or mains block.
Furutech FI-11 copper IEC connector, 1000's sold and a perfect sonic match for the plug and cable.
We have also included a metre of black polyester braided sleeving to put on the outside of the cable and some heatshrink to seal the ends and provide strain relief for the connectors.
You will need DIY skills to assemble the mains lead but once done you will be rewarded with a finished product that will provide years of musical enjoyment through your hifi system.
If you require a USA or EU Schuko plug we can provide that no extra charge instead of the UK plug.
Some information about the new Furutech FP-S20N cable....
All audiophiles search for the same qualities: Verisimilitude to the original event, a sense of engagement promoting suspension of disbelief, a visceral immersion in the audio video experience. They also know that everything in the signal path makes a difference, and that which we see, hear and experience is, in a very direct way the AC power itself. In fact, the AC supply is directly in the signal path. As amplifiers transfer energy to speakers it draws down storage capacitors by exactly the same amount.
The capacitors try to keep fully charged by drawing energy from rectifiers that turn the AC into DC from the transformer that draws power through the wall. Ultimately everything you see, hear and experience is the AC that must be identical to let’s say an amplifier’s output, and that AC travels through the power cord! That’s why they’re as important as any cable in a system because they carry the same signal.
Furutech has received enthusiastic reports of significant improvements with every type of audio, video and display device. Furutech Alpha Nano-OFC is one of the best conductors Furutech engineers have found for sound reproduction. The new technology used in the highly specialized manufacturing process of this ultra-high performance power cable combines Furutech’s world renowned Alpha-OFC conductors with Furutech’s extremely effective signal transmission enhancer, Nano Liquid. Nano Liquid’s molecules are so tiny (8 nano-meters in diameter (8/1000000mm) they cover the Alpha-OFC surface and “fill up” any concave-convex sections left on the conductor surface during the production process, increasing the electric conduction area and debasing impedance.
The very precise mix of gold and silver super-micro particles and amount of dispersing Squalene oil used on the conductor has great influence on the sound reproduction, and Furutech’s engineers settled on their exact ratio of gold to silver particles after careful audition of countless test samples. The resulting “tuned” cable offers superb overall balance of qualities that Furutech is known for that allows you to feel experience and communicate with music. The results are extremely fine resolution down and through the very low noise floor, improved sound staging and image palpability, a musical, attractive, “round” midrange, tight and controlled bass, plus power and dynamics to spare to set your music on fire!

Have just used one of these to replace one of "R A's Powermax Plus" cables and the differences are nothing short of astounding. So good I have just ordered another.
Robust cable and sturdy mains plug and 16A. I did need a heavy duty paint stripper to shrink the heat shrink. [daughters hair dryer was not up to it] A total novice at wiring plugs may well have a few head scratch moments.
