Regular Shielded IEC

Transparent 13A UK mains plug to Schurter brass female IEC connector

Our Regular Shielded IEC cable uses a high quality transparent mains plug. 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. The female IEC connector we use is a high-quality design by Schurter - this is available as either a straight connector or a right-angled connector, which is useful in confined spaces. See below for more info on plug sizes.

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) and our silver-plated Blue IECs, we can also offer the fitting of ferrite cores for the suppression of high-frequency noise. For a significantly better IEC cable, check out our PowerBlack IEC cable.

Customer Testimonials

The cable came through this morning, thanks for the quick turnaround. As for the cable itself I am very impressed, there is an immediate effect on the sound quality. It has given a richer, warmer sound to my hifi, as well as cutting out the occasional interference I was getting. Thanks a lot, I will definitely consider buying from you in the future.

I just want to say thank you very much for the fast turn around, you obviously know your stuff, so I shall be back. Your cable has replaced a M***** B**** W**** on a Samsung 40” LCD with some stunning results in both colour and definition of the picture.


 I have used a variety of cables for power -  R*** A******, T**, a good array money-wise from £15 to £150 and none have had the impact the yours had. I am a firm believer that simple but high quality products, put together with passion, always work well, so you cable is a breath of fresh air! I read what you are all about and figured you had a passion for cables, so it was an easy purchase really.


My initial thoughts were to buy a lesser cable than what was originally on the TV, but your cable has outshone a cable costing 3 times the price and yours includes delivery, so great job on your part and keep up the good work! I shall certainly encourage other hifi users to you buy from you.

These cables are great, I can definitely appreciate a clearer and more detailed sound from the amp and Squeezebox I am using them with. Cheers!


Dave (UK)


Very impressed after very short listening time. Clearer, and noise floor much improved.

Further Information

Regular Shielded IEC cables are available in any length, with a wide choice of mains plugs - as well as our UK types, we 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.

We are also able to fit our silver-plated Blue IEC, a brass-contact Schurter IEC connector, either straight or right-angled, or a slimline Bulgin connector. This is useful for an IEC inlet that has limited space around it, such as on some projectors and TVs where our Blue IEC will not fit properly. For reference, the Blue IEC is a cylinder measuring 36mm in diameter, and the Schurter IEC measures 29mm wide by 21mm high. If the socket on your equipment is not big enough (especially on some TVs) then the Schurter will not fit. We can also offer a slim brass IEC made by Bulgin at the same price as the Schurter, which measures just 26mm wide by 17mm high. For reference, the right angled Schurter requires a depth behind the equipment of just 33mm, once plugged in. If in doubt about any connector and its suitability, just email us and we can provide advice.
