Stage III Concepts Poseidon
From AUD $39,500.00
Ultimate Statement Silver/Palladium Power Cables
When contemplating a power cable that is a result of such monumental engineering effort and materials cost, perhaps the appropriate place to start is… why?
Who in their right mind would want or need a power cable of this expense? The Leviathan set new global standards for the audiophile community so why would you possibly need anything beyond that? Can you even hear the difference?
The story of the Poseidon began with a small group of clients in the USA who had developed personal systems of the highest quality and were using top of the range Stage III cabling throughout, including a full loom of Leviathan power cables. They approached Stage III and asked if there were any possible improvements that could be made to the power delivery that could potentially improve the sound quality and unlock further information from their systems. Stage III decided to build a prototype of a cost-no-object ultimate performance cable and test it in their systems. Then listening tests would reveal if engineering power cables to that level was worth the effort and expense. The prototypes were finished a few months later, they were taken to the locations of these systems and listening tests were conducted with the owners and a listening panel. The results were so conclusive, that the new cables were bought into production as the Poseidon range.
This cable is designed for a very small number of audiophiles, similar to the clients that approached Stage III. It is very heavy, very expensive and has a materials cost that is frankly unbelievable. Each cable takes many weeks to be made by hand and the technologies used in the Poseidon are not only unique to Stage III, they have never been attempted by any other brand. It is the absolute ultimate achievement in statement level audio power delivery. For most people, it is inconceivable that this level of effort and cost has been applied to a power cable. But for those select few who are reaching for the ultimate expression of the art of music reproduction, the Poseidon represents an opportunity to unlock every ounce of potential from your electronics. When you are attending to the finer details like professionally designed listening spaces, optimisation of every connection & removing all artefacts from the power supply….when you are striving to ensure purity at every level, the Poseidon exists to give you comfort that there is simply nothing more you can do to ensure perfection in power delivery. Rare and simply mind blowing!
