Here our unique rope-lay MonocrystalTM conductor weave is combined with a double screen of aluminium foil and tinned copper which along with the acoustic damping cotton filler makes this one of the quietest power cables in existence. The advantages of using a rope-lay weave are the considerable reduction of RFI/EMI/ESI noise ingress, a major player in mains connection.
The Big Red comes in two pre-terminated versions: High Current and Ultra Current-a third, the ‘Max Current' will be released in the New Year-each one a genuine upgrade on its predecessor.
For the HC version we use the world-renowned SchurterTM 320iec.
In the UC we have installed the Audiophile Reference grade FurutechTM FI 20-Rhodium (trust me we've tested pretty much ALL the competitors and chose Furutech for its expansive soundstage and detail) 24Karat gold plated, anti-magnetic and unique 'earth-jumper' IEC connection. (for total rejection of deleterious inter-screw magnetism and EMI) Certainly the very best IEC available today on mains cable around this price.
Generally speaking, one of the achievements of a well-balanced and installed system is the sensation of the speakers 'disappearing' into the soundstage. With Ecosse Big Red PowerchordsTM installed, width beyond the speakers and depth behind the wall is apparent in spades.
Seriously extended and detailed bass is also well apparent while the mid and treble ranges benefit by palpable more imagery, speed and clarity, and a greater sense of the recorded acoustic.

"The Big Red, from SCOTTISH CABLE KINGS ECOSSE, is a mean looking bit of wire with decent balance and attack"
