Kurt from Santa Fe comments on our NEW Interconnects
Ice Age Audio new RCA Interconnects are made of high quality materials. The sonic signature is natural and organic across the full frequency spectrum. What these interconnects do is let the music shine without any artificial coloration. Today, most brand name interconnect companies color the music and alter the sonic signature from the original recording. Ice Age Audio Interconnects reproduce the music as it was originally recorded. This is the ultimate goal of audiophile purists and rare to find in interconnects at any price point.
David's review of our NEW Copper-Copper C7 Cable
Yes, there was an immediate and amazing difference - I'd been cheating myself for years! I used the new power cord for my NAD CD player, and material that I thought sounded good now sounds way better with more "body" to the sounds so that they are more natural and less fatiguing than before. It's funny (and a bit sad) how you don't know what you're missing until you have an alternative. My music now has a more realistic sound stage. And the song material from my copy of the Stereophile Test CD 3 that I've had for 20 years finally sounds more like what the description in the booklet says it should sound. No change I made ever let me hear the "big assed bass" on Doug MacLeod's "Rollin' and Tumblin'". It always sounded underwhelming until I switched to your power cable. Now it sounds real - and big. My treasured copy of "Kind of Blue" on, of all labels, NotNowMusic, is much more improved that I thought it could be. I play "So What" from that disc as a reference, and I heard immediate improvement - no more fatiguing horns - and the bass is glorious. Thank you, thank you for a great product.
I was asking about breaking in the cable to see if I needed too - can't imagine it sounding better, but I'll use the burn-in track on the Stereophile CD and let you know if I hear further improvement, which would be sweet indeed.
Jordan had this to say about his assorted purchases
I would like to thank you and your son eternally for building me the 4 cables I own now.
8 ft. for my Furman IT-Reference 20
2 ft. for my Benchmark DAC2 D
4 ft. for my custom built Windows 7 PC
15 ft. for my Furman 2 ch. power conditioner
I am very pleased with their sound in my studio and I have gotten stellar results with my Sony 60" SXRD TV tweaking it with the 15 ft. plugged in.
Your cables are allowing me to be a lot less distorted and to witness the best sound and picture I have ever experienced.
Thank you again Ice Age Audio.
Another happy customers review
I just got my cable today hooked it up & wow. To my surprise what I've been fighting for a year since I got my Subwoofer. I was frustrated that I couldn't get the thump, Hey I got the thump in my Sub now. I swapped the other cable i bought last year from you guys with the silver / silver, put the copper/silver end one in the subwoofer. Bam thump ! Thanks again for another great cable, #3 from you guys.
Great cable ! Great Price ! Big improvement IMO.
Promise you won't be disappointed.
Here's what John did and the results he had
Ran a 10% Silver content Subwoofer cable to a Cambridge Mini x201 sub from a Cambridge SR 20 receiver and added your C7 power cord to the mini subwoofer. The results was astonishing! The combination driving a 6.5 inch subwoofer provides tight and crisp bass combined with Monitor Audio Silver 100 Book Shelf speakers. A side system I put together. Feel free to share with others. Thanks again for a great affordable product. John.
Kevin in Michigan says this about our cables compared to a few others
Just confirming what hifizine found. Quality product at very sane prices. Better than stock cables for sure. Buddy brought buy a Wireworld Electra 7 cable (about $360) and a $2000 Nordost cable on loan from a shop. Plus I had a basic Silnote Posidon GL. Your cable soundly beat the Nordost for low end. The Wireworld was very close and came down to preference. Yours was better than the Silnote in quality (for sure) and sound. The Wireworld was a bit smoother on the top end (for amp and streamer only) but it was really splitting hairs... would not bet money I could tell the difference in a blind test and I preferred the greater detail (maybe) from yours. We tried on my Amp, DAC and steamer. (500 watt solid state integrated, Boarder Patrol SE dac and Auralic Mini streamer with external PSU) though B&W 804 d3 speakers on a dedicated circuit and dedicated listening room. I plan to replace the Silnote cord on my DAC and stock cord on my streamer PSU with your products - because your pricing allows me to do so and the great quality is more in line with the gear I am using
Stephen, a long time customer shared this...
I wasn't too happy with the sound my CD player was putting out with the Shunyata Sidewinder power cord (MSRP $700) that I was using, so I took one of the Ice Age Audio Copper Power Cords that I use exclusively in my other audio system and swapped it out. Immediately I heard the tighter bass that I was not hearing with the Shunyata, with the same clarity but more smoothness to the sound. Your cables perform as well as cables costing 4x - 5x the price. It's like getting a Mercedes for the cost of a Honda, right? So, for anyone with $150 - $200 to spend on a power cable, I would recommend any of your various cables. Good, clean power equals good sound, so why not outfit your entire audio system for the cost of a single "name brand" cable? It's the comparison between your cables and the mid-level of the "brand names" where there is at least an equality between yours and theirs. But in my case I found your cables to perform better, especially with the difficult task of tightening the bass and eliminating the "bloom" or overhang that robs audio systems of clarity and transparency. Thanks again for your cables-Stephen
Robert from Oklahoma had this to say...
Let me start by saying I have never been a person that believed buying an after market power cable could possibly make a difference in the sound quality of my audio system. I just didn't see how it could and I still don't really understand the how and why of it, but it does.
After reading enough reviews from other users I contacted the guys at Ice Age Audio and gave them a run down of my gear and what I wanted the cords for. I am using them on tube monoblocks and they suggested I try the Copper/Copper cables. I had some lengthy messaging sections with the guys at Ice Age and decided I was ready. I placed my order on Sunday and had two power cords on Wednesday. These things are rugged amazing build quality, and sound phenomenal. I am not a pro audiophile nor do I know all the terms pro reviewers use or what they mean nor do I really care. What I do know is I enjoy music and I know what sounds good to me. I cannot put into words the differences I heard. It was like whatever was missing was now there. It was just a rounded out fuller sound. I compared to the stock cords and even my non audiophile girlfriend could tell the difference in the sound spectrum. I even compared them to my silver cords and these Copper/Copper cables were absolutely the best match for my system and offered the best sound signature to my ears. Then what I didn't expect was the next day I got a text from Rick asking me if I got the cords and what I thought. That is amazing customer service in my book and really makes me feel like I am more than just an account number. High five to the crew at Ice Age Audio on all points. I can highly recommend Ice Age Audio products to anyone. I will definitely be purchasing more soon....
Thank you guys, Robert-Oklahoma City
Steve from New Zealand, our first NZ customer had these comments...
I have to admit I was astonished at the difference the power cables made to the overall listening experience. Makes you feel like you are in the middle of a concert and that they are playing just for you. This would have to be the best value for money improvement I've ever made. Was most impressed that the cables took less than a week to come half way around the world.
I received my 2 power cables yesterday. As with my previous cables, these are beautiful, rugged powerhouse cables. Very finely crafted like a high end cable, but at your very affordable prices. I purchased these 2 copper/copper 10 gauge cables for my 2 PC's in the music streamer I have created. Honestly, I had modest expectations. The Ice Age Audio cables I have on my amplifiers have performed extremely well. I was not sure of how much improvement to expect from putting these on my PC's. When I installed these yesterday I was pleased at the nice boost in sound quality. This did not prepare me for the experience of today. When I played music this morning I was taken aback. Wow, what improved control, depth and focus. The biggest improvement is in the bass, which was never as tight and accurate as I hoped. Now the articulation and punch really brings a realism heretofore not experienced. Thanks for your very important contribution to this computer audiophile dream system I am creating here in Philly. :))
Let me add that this customer did a side by side demo/comparison with our cables and a well known name brand cable costing $650.00. He didn't say ours was better, but in his own words, for the cost difference our cable performed amazingly well with very subtle differences.
Jay had these comments...
This cable just sounds too good! I wasn't prepared for that and my heart is still recovering. And it's only been burned in for 4 hours!
I have to say how proud I am of you for offering the Best Quality at a price us commoners can afford. I've long been a fan of Cryo Treatment but never had a treated power cable. And those Premium Silver Connectors! Dam. This stuff is over the top! Sorry about all the ! marks but that is how I feel right now. I'm kind of in a daze. I hope you have liability insurance for people like me who get too blown away. :-)
Thank you, thank you, thank you. Sincerely, Jay
Herb shared his opinion...
My wife Sharon had ordered a 5 ft Copper/Copper power cord for me last week. I did a quick comparison against my kubala- sosna and my synergistic research master power cords. The Ice Age cord was darker and fuller sounding than the kubala, which I prefer, also has a tighter, more focused bass and mid-range! An all together more balanced and coherent response! I found the synergistic to be fairly compatible with Ice Age, but these cords were 300.00 for a 5 ft length over 20 years ago! And forget about the over priced kubala! Your build quality is second to none, I thank you and keep up the great work! I will be ordering again very soon! I will also have my audiophile buddy's audition the power cord also, so expect more new customers! Feel free to use this testimonial! Thank you for improving my sound, Herb
Jim reviews our Silver/Silver Cables
Hello Rick, just letting you know, got my cable today, connected it up to my amp and "WOW" what a big difference. Now I have 3 Silver Plated Copper 10 Gauge cables connected between my CD player, pre amp and amp and this totally blows away Pangea's cable which I thought sounded pretty good but your cable really opens things up for the better. My sound stage is wider, bottom end tight and top end just sounds sweeter. Thanks for a great cable at a great price. Best regards, Jim
Lansing's comments on what it did for his system...
Hi Rick, I have never bought an after market cable before, but I did a lot of research before I bought yours. I have nothing except the stock cable to compare it to, but it has made a major difference in my computer-USB Dac stereo system. A more powerful and engaging presentation, more detail and clarity. I had previously bought a HD-Plex power supply for my DAC and music server that made a big difference, but the power cord made an even bigger one. Together they are fabulous. I followed my instincts on this purchase, and glad I did. Thanks
Jan's results with his NAIM Power Amp...
The copper/copper power cable cable arrived today and I've connected it to my Naim Supernait2 amp... and I have absolutely no desire to remove it. I wasn't expecting this level of improvement over my regular cable. Everything seems just so much tighter and present. Leading edges of notes are much better defined ; more attack, more jump factor, more of pretty much everything at the moment. I've done a couple of return visits to my regular cable, and the improvement that yours brings is not subtle. It is evident even at low listening levels, which is how I do much of my listening. So far, this the most cost-effective upgrade I've heard in my system ; performance well beyond the price
Roland says this about his 10 gauge Silver IEC cable
Highly recommended power cord at an unbeatable price. Well constructed very sturdy and rigid design being offered at a price well under its value. It was compared side by side with my Audioquest power cord costing over 5 times more. I have to say that this cord very well may have outdone the Audioquest. The cord is not only much thicker and "beefier" with a braided cover that wont fray like my Audioquest does, but there were also sonic differences. On Joni Mitchell Blue on vinyl there was an immediate audible depth apparent in her breath that was lacking on the Audioquest. The acoustic strings shimmered as I hadn't quite heard before, and the accompanying bass notes had a fresh vibration of rich warmth that I couldn't be imagining. Hard to pass up at this price so I bought another for the cd player. Thank you Ice Age!!!
Virgil from Coldwater, MI says this about his 3ft Silver IEC cable
Never having bought high quality power cables before, but being a firm believer in quality interconnects, I was pleasantly surprised at the difference that these power cables made in my system tuner and CD player components. I immediately noticed a fuller and more powerful low frequency portion of the musical spectrum as well as what seems to be greater depth and body in the sound stage. I am playing my system at higher listening levels across the board now, which I believe is due to the perception that the playback is of a higher quality.
Gary from Ambridge, Pa says this about his Silver IEC cables
Who needs new power cables? What do they do besides carry power to the component they are serving? Can they really do anything to improve the sound of your system? I like most thought not. I replaced everything in my system to get to where I thought I wanted it to be. Respected high end components, interconnects and speaker cables that are second to none, speakers that most people dream of. But still i just wasn't happy with the sound. Why with all this top end equipment was I unhappy? It didn't sound live. While looking through Ebay I decided for no good reason to look at power cables. I found Tubegeeks listing...hmmm...cryo'd power cables.....cheap.......too cheap to pass up. I took the plunge. 3 silver cables to start, upgraded the plugs. The BEST and CHEAPEST upgrade I have ran across. Now we sound live. Go to the concert at home. That’s right they're that good. A few days later I bought more. There's a little secret that no one notices with their equipment - i didn't either - there's a reason you can change the cables on your equipment - they are not the best and the manufacturer knows it. These cables are absolutely rock solid, well made and beautifully constructed. Do what I did ...... steal them and run.
Rob from Hilton Head Island SC says this about his Red Copper cord...
This is a very high performance cable made with the right metals that produces a sound only seen in cables costing hundreds of dollars more. The only thing better than this cable for the money is the person who makes them. A real pleasure to do business with and someone who will go that extra mile for you ....and then some!!!!
Konrad from St Paul MN says this about his Hospital Grade cord...
These cables are amazing! I am fully satisfied. I prefer these over any of my current high end power cables. The sense of ‘live’ was greatly enhanced in my system, low noise, airy, these cords lead to considerable system synergy. Thank You.
Sam from Buffalo, NY says this about his 10 gauge Silver IEC Cord
Just wanted to drop you a line to say that I'm blown away by the quality of your product. I was skeptical about what a power cord could bring to the table sonically. Easy to hear the difference. I'll definitely be doing more business with you in the future.
Richard from Tomball Texas says this about his 10 gauge Silver IEC cord
I purchased a 5ft-10 gauge cryo treated power cable from Rick over the holidays and I must say it was a great present to myself. The build quality is the first thing you notice, very good looking. I have power cables from Nordist and PS audio but quickly realized Rick’s cable was the more holographic of the three. It is now the primary cable for my Tube amp no higher praise can I give.
Bill from Murrieta.CA says this about his 10 gauge Silver IEC cables
These are awesome power cables! I was blown away by the craftsmanship and quality. I have been searching for product that would shield, maximize power flow and eliminate clutter as well as outside frequency noise. Compared to stock cables, well, there is no comparison. I never bought into the $1200.00 cables that mythically "improve" sound quality. Your product is affordable, very well crafted, and obviously built perform and to last!
Don says this about the cables he purchased
Review for his Power Cable:
I just put together a new audio system, consisting of a Jolida integrated amp. I recognize the importance of using a good power cord, but was not prepared for the difference the Ice Age Audio power cord made. Before, I was sitting in the back of the audience; with the Ice Age Audio cord it bought me a ticket up front. I was floored and could not believe the difference. I switched my OEM cable back and forth with the Ice Age Audio cable, trying to deny what I was hearing. Needless to say the Ice Age Audio cable put a smile on my face.
Review for his HDMI cable:
Installed the Ice Age Audio HDMI cable to my Sony flat screen, and I could not believe my eyes. It was like I had my 3D glasses on! I had never seen depth like this on my TV. The color became much more natural. It was like I had bought a new television with new technology.
Al says this about his Red Copper cable
I'm not an experienced audiophile but even I could immediately hear the difference when I put this power cord in the system. I use small, John Blue JB3 speakers that are known for their clarity and smooth sound, however they do lack some bottom end (although it is rather remarkable what they have for their size). This power cord made a noticeable improvement to the bottom end and also created a fuller sound. I couldn't be happier.
Rabin Says this about his Silver IEC Cable
Just installed the cables and they are phenomenal! There is no denying the new depth in the sound stage. Even my 9 year old daughter heard a difference between it and the stock Rega cord. I have always believed that a better cord was possible, however hadn't heard a noticeable enough difference to confirm this....until now. The fortunate ones to own Ice Age Audio cords, benefit from your experience and passion. Thank you Rick for providing the key which unlocked the potential of my audio equipment. I'm rediscovering my music!
Mark says this about his cable purchases
My bro-in-law and I have been involved audiophiles since the late '70's (I still have my first EPi's!) and while his listening and taste in speakers (his Maggie's, me, Vandies) vary, our shared interest in the 'outside' (v. component internals) side of things has of recent deepened. Now, after all that, the revealing subtleties of cryo-treatment has become a head-whack kinda revelation. Cryo-treating has veritas in numerous other proven applications and Rick has brought to our game, a group of great products...and at truly affordable prices! In a time where audiophile products tend toward the, umm, astronomically 'pricey', Rick has taken a 'high-end' technology application, made it affordable and well within our grasp. I have one of his power cables for my Outlaw integrated and another for my Dynaco tubed cd player. The immediate effect is 'right there'!...even before usual break-in. His products are of quality build and the revealing nature of his cables are, as mentioned, immediate. The initial impression I heard was a 'flood of sound' and was tempted to reduce volume but within that 'flood' was more detail, too...was just 'more' music coming through. (The 'factory' wires now relegated to my audio has-been 'parts bin' (we all have one of those, don't we?). All this, as mentioned, before any break-in time...I just wonder where this could possible go once those molecules get 'acclimated'.
Rick's also been there for any other aspects 'after the sale' so I highly recommend his products.
Glen H Bingham says…
In the audiophile world of tweaks some of very dubious benefit. Like clocks and what amounts to coat or candle sticks racks it is refreshing to have a product as the Iceageaudio Cryo Treated Power Cord. Value compared to many other makers of such a treatment is unsurpassed in cost. The construction of the cable is not just top notch but treads the fine line of not being too unyielding in application.
The sound through my McIntosh MA6600 has a greater ease musically. That the cables are made here in the USA by a fine duo of father and son adds to my satisfaction in money well spent for a product that adds to my enjoyment of music.
Robert from Florida says…
I was a little hesitant to order cables from ICE Age Audio due to the low prices. I first ordered a few power cords. Boy was I pleasantly surprised. I was floored by the sound and the 3D quality of the picture on my LCD TV. I was so happy I ordered HDMI cables that had the same effect. They equal the quality of my Oyaide Cables which are 10x the cost. I even like the "look" better as it is more 3 dimensional. You will be happy.
Leo from Maine bought an HDMI cable
I have an older Panasonic 50PX77U plasma and have always used a BJC component RGB hookup for cable because it gave a brighter and deeper contrast to the picture than any HDMI cable I had tried. Unfortunately, I have to use HDMI with my Panasonic BDT-210 bluray so I decided to try this HDMI chord. I compared this Ice Age to what was a decent Mediabridge and the difference was quite stunning. The color intensity and brilliance just makes the picture pop. The video I used was Avatar and the difference was very obvious in the richness of the transmission. The cable is well worth the money and I plan to get another one to replace my current RGB hookup for cable.
Jason, from Alberta Canada our first Carbon Fiber cable
Received the cable today, set it up and all I can say is "wow". The amount of fine detail retrieval is impressive, and my eyes are still shaking from the bottom end. Now I really can't wait for those other cables.
Tim from North Dakota says…
Thanks Rick, your products are so good I really don't know where to begin. Your power cords absolutely blew my high dollar Shunyata power snakes out of the water. Clarity, Sound Stage, major bass and treble improvement. Vocals are just unreal. I know I have had two friends buy your HDMI cables too. Can't wait to hear them sing your praises as well. Probably, the best complement I have is that I had a friend stop by and they thought I had purchased a new TV. That just proves how much of a performance increase your HDMI cables deliver. Great stuff.
