The Ziggy Inception X.5 – a Power Supply Cable for Audio

This is the Ziggy Inception X.5 power supply cable …

This is a Power Supply Cable for Audio which is based on a regular braid of 5 x 6mm2 conductors.

Standard Length:  c.a. 1,9 meters

Schuko Plug: Furutech FI-38(G)

IEC Plug: Wattgate EVO 350 RH, or:  Furutech FI-28(G).

Versions with other plugs are also possible:  AU vs. RH,   (R) vs. (G)

The “Ziggy Inception X.5″ is characterized by a sound signature which is slightly more agressive than that of the Ziggy Picasso. Comparatively speaking: I would much rather prefer the “Picasso” whilst drinking my evening glass of wine and relaxing, but on the other hand, I would very much prefer the Ziggy Inception X.5 when listening to up-beat pop music on a party. The Inception X.5 has a somewhat “American style” of presentation. “On steroids”, as some audiophiles may call it.  The Wow!! effect is somewhat more pronounced at first impressions, but after several hours worth of listening, the user might get overwhelmed by the contour of the higher frequency ranges and might want to fall back to the somewhat more “easy going” Picasso.

In terms of current handling capability, the Inception X.5 product is “limited” by the performance specifications of the actual power plugs: 10 A / 250V.
The Ziggy Inception X.5 is a universal audio power supply cable, but it is “best loved” in the context of providing power to the low signal devices of the audio path, and especially to devices such as the DAC, pre-amplifier, phono amplifier, CD player, CD-Transport, streaming device, various tube pre-amplifiers, etc.

The cable is universal in terms of use, and hence – may also be well used to deliver power to … power amplifiers. This will result in a fresh, airy and rich in details sound signature, with extended details and good sound scene focus.  On the other hand, if one is in need for “authority” and “slam” – especially in the lower- and upper-bass, as well as the lower-midrange, if one is seeking for more color and timbre within his music content, then I would rather “go” with the Ziggy Cheetah for such power hungry devices.
