Plixir Elementa Power Cable


Sound Affairs recently launched their in-house Plixir Elementa Power Cable. This is almost certainly a sign of things to come - Mr. James Soh, principal of Sound Affairs, hinted that a number of other cables are expected under the Plixir label.


The Elementa is a supple and flexible cable which should minimise routing headaches. James advised that the Elementa is designed for low current applications, e.g. source equipment. It is also available in a variety of lengths and termination options. 

The review samples provided were terminated in Japanese Meikosha AC and Schurter IEC plugs. In use, they provided a firm and reassuring grip.

Sound Quality

The modest price tag is likely to appeal to audiophiles on starter systems, or with tight budget constraints.

In comparison to a stock power cord, bass notes took on a tighter, deeper and more articulate quality. Midrange was a bit laidback with a smooth and warm tone. Some subtle detail was lost there, but as a trade-off, this flattered sibilant and harsh recordings. Treble had a slight uplift, with increased clarity and separation. There was also a noticeable improvement in image definition and soundstage stability.


The Elementa power cable is a sensible and cost-effective upgrade, far exceeding my expectations. 

There are better power cords out in the market, but at much higher price brackets. The Elementa does a lot of things right and given the very reasonable price tag, this is definitely a winner.

Highly recommended.
