Brand: Zu Audio
Country of Origin: Ogden, Utah—USA
You are buying direct from Zu Audio. Designed, manufactured and shipping from Ogden, Utah—U.S.A.

This auction is for a new unopened 3.3 foot (1.0m) Zu Audio Birth power cable with Wattgate™ IEC and U.S. wall plug. With FREE USPS Priority shipping for the lower 48! This cable comes complete with factory packaging, user guide, and 60-day satisfaction guarantee.

Birth power cable is designed as a universal needs, high performance mains cable for use on all pro audio or home audio or video equipment that features an IEC320/C-14, C-20, or Neutrik PowerCon disconnect.
Birth power cables are fully compliant with all known national and international standards such as: UL, IEEE, CSA, CE, BSI, JET.

There are so many variables relative to power, and the user should know that there are many times that a power cable will not improve fidelity. Equipment power supply, gear grounding, system ground noise and potentials, environment RF and above ground potentials, AC grids, local grounding, and on it goes. Nevertheless, if the power cable does a good job of shunting noise to ground and has good properties relative to phase, gain, group delay, impedance, and bandwidth, it should sound good. Improvements that may be noticed from well engineered power cables and power and grounding should include resolution, system noise floor, harmonic structure and timbre, attack, stereophonic realism, easy of listening.

Zu Birth will require a fair amount of use before it’s fully burned in, roughly 200 hours. We do not recommend any burn-in devices or special recordings. We do recommend music you enjoy, preferably upbeat full spectrum recordings. Rock, roots, full orchestra, big band.... For the possible hows and whys about burn-in please see our FAQ section of

Birth maintenance
Anytime you are making an electrical connection make it a habit to inspect the contacts and clean them if they are tarnished or dirty. Even so, no maintenance is required for the cable or the connector. All conductors are completely sealed, including the connectors which are fully encapsulated. If the connector contacts ever become dull or tarnished you will need to clean them. Zu does not recommend any contact enhancing products for the Birth, or any Zu power cable. ///  800-516-8925
