PowerBlack 3-Pole Bulgin

MK Toughplug to 3-Pole Bulgin connector, with ferrite core

The 3-Pole Bulgin connector is commonly used on some vintage hi-fi equipment from manufacturers such as Leak and Quad. This obsolete connector has been shunned by commercial cable manufacturers - until now. We use an original Bulgin part to create a mains cable that allows you to enjoy your vintage equipment in a way you have never experienced before!

Customer Testimonials.

First listening impressions: more soundstage (front to back, side to side); more detail, which I most noticed in vocals but evident pretty much throughout; more relaxed music in complicated arrangements. Thanks!

I just got the cables, and gave one a quick try on my Sky box; the picture quality instantly improved! The rest of the cables on my TV are already shielded, and still your cable made a difference. I am impressed, really good work, they’re high quality cables. Thanks.

Further Information
Every PowerBlack cable has a double shield arrangement of a dense tinned copper braid and a dielectric layer in order to give excellent electrical shielding characteristics, and comes fitted with a ferrite core as standard in order to suppress any high-frequency interference that is already present in your mains supply. These ferrites are an extremely effective upgrade, and are also available for purchase separately in our DIY Parts section, along with our silver-plated Blue IEC connector.
PowerBlack 3-Pole Bulgin cables are available in any length, with a wide choice of mains plugs. We fit an MK Toughplug with ultrasonically cleaned and hand-polished brass pins as standard, but can also fit mains plugs for Europe (Schuko type), Australia and the US, as well as male IEC connectors if you need an IEC-IEC cable. In addition, we hold several silver-plated versions of these plug types in stock, so please ask if you have a specific request.
