Regular Shielded Figure-8

Transparent 13A UK mains plug to silver-plated Figure-8 connector

Our Regular Shielded Figure-8 cable uses a high quality transparent mains plug, which has its brass pins ultrasonically cleaned and hand-polished. This improves the conductivity of the pins when plugged into a socket. The cable itself has a braid of fine steel filaments that acts as an electrical shield, which is advantageous in  environments where interference is present. On the equipment end we use a silver-plated figure-8 connector, which is also known as a C7 connector. This type of connector is used on many audio-visual devices such as Sky boxes, games consoles, CD/DVD/Blu-Ray players and numerous other devices. The C7 connector is silver-soldered to the cable, secured in place and is finished off to a professional standard.

The cable can be upgraded in several ways - as well as a choice of MK Toughplugs (brass or silver pins, with the connections made up with silver solder), we can also offer the fitting of ferrite cores for the suppression of high-frequency noise. For a significantly better figure-8 cable, check out our PowerBlack Figure-8 cable.


Customer Testimonials

I have seen a few mains cables in my time but never one as beautifully made as this - the cable itself is incredibly stiff and strong. The difference in my fairly high end system was immediately apparent and I look forward to improvement as it burns in. What incredible value for money!!! Thank you and I will leave A1 feedback on Ebay later today and will retain your details for future purchases. Regards, and have a good week!
