This is EGM’s brand new top performing flagship design and is rather special. The bright emerald coloured sheath with black detail stitching immediately grabs your attention. Holding it in your hands you are surprised and aware of the substantial weight of this 15mm outer diameter cable. With three thick cores of 10 gauge or 6mm2 each, it feels insanely thick and is able to instantly transmit lots of AC current to your amplifier or device without any hesitation or lag. It is terminated with EGM’s best Copper/ Tellurium pins within thickly moulded ends.
How does it Sound?
Sound quality wise, with the emerald audio grade power cable connected, the sound is particularly open and airy with excellent separation between the instruments and vocals. This cable exhibits very good balance between the highs, mids and bass. This cable has the most bass extension in the EGM range, with deep well articulated bass notes that carries enough bass weight to be impressive. There is no bloom or uneven attention given to the bass, but it’s very well balanced, with fullness, texture and definition.
The PRaT or timing is spot on, with instruments that that attack or slam having excellent delivery speed. Listeners can expect a full and balanced sound, with excellent bass weight and extension. It’s recommend that the power cable be tried first connected directly to the wall socket to maintain speed, focus and heft in the bass. This cable may also work very well connected to high quality power conditioners. The emerald is a versatile design that has been tested on digital sources that draw less than half an amp and the same sound quality is maintained and is ultra-refined.
It is particularly good value and for the price difference between it and the Black Pearl is a no brainer upgrade that is well worth it. If you have a high resolution audio system you will easily hear a large sonic difference between this cable and every other cable in our range.
EGM Audio Recommendation
Best performance for ultra high-end audiophile systems – Power Conditioners, Power Amps, Mono Blocks & Hi Power Applications. Recommended Length 2 metre.
What is Cable Burn-in?
All cables and especially highly revealing audio cables require a little time to settle and start performing at their optimum. There are many opinions as to why this well-known phenomenon happens, but we won’t get bore you with it. Although they can often sound good immediately, we recommend that you allow EGM cables at least 48 hrs of constant use before doing any critical listening. This initial period of time will make the largest difference to the sound quality. For the next week or two the cable will continue to improve, but in smaller increments.
A fully burned-in cable will sound smoother and more musical. It will also have better timing, imaging, treble detail, bass power and control as well as being less fatiguing to listen to.

The EGM Family Sound
As is often the case with high-end audio manufacturers, all of the EGM audio grade power cables have a “family sound”. What is it and will it suit you?
EGM audio specialist power cables are designed to sound smooth, articulate, revealing and with just a touch of warmth. You will hear this with all our power cables, from the entry-level through to our flagship. We believe that you should never experience unpleasant surprises when upgrading cables throughout our range. As you spend a little more and move up to the Black Pearl and Emerald range you can expect to hear even more from your music, with more detail, quieter backgrounds and a fuller, richer sound.
EGM audio grade power cables do not sound artificial, overly bright or harmonically out of balance, but have a lovely smooth top to bottom balance and neutrality that we have become well known for.
Why should I use EGM Audio grade power cables?
Many people have asked us what is the difference between EGM Audio cables and the thin moulded cheaply made cable included in the box. It’s the sound quality. Technically both do the job, but only a specialised audio cable allows your audio device to sound the way it was meant to. When you stop to compare the quality of the conductors, the wire diameter and extensive use of electromagnetic and radio-frequency shielding, it’s little wonder that EGM audio grade power cables are superior sounding by a large margin. EGM has spent over 2 years of R&D looking into their new cable range, with extensive listening tests and prototyping so that you can enjoy world-class products at a reasonable price.
EGM is proud that every cable they manufacture uses the same standard of workmanship, the same high grade protective outer sheath, the same 100mm protective heat-shrink covers on both ends of the wires and is hand made by people with years of experience in the audio industry. Every cable is individually tested for quality guarantee. All the cable’s in the range are shielded against destructive EMI/RFI and is available in standard & custom lengths and with a wide variety of International & IEC plug tops to suit almost every audio or AV device.
