Triode Wire Labs Empty Triode Wire Labs

Post by zacho on Thu Jun 01, 2017 2:23 am

About a year ago, I started my journey on finding aftermarket power cables for my integrated amp and DAC. Friends were kind enough to bring over some of their power cables to let me audition in my setup, allowing me to have some perspective on what different cables brought to the table. I auditioned about 4-5 different cables and found that there always was some kind of trade-off when swapping between cables. None of the cables I auditioned gave me the peace of mind that was required for me to commit to a purchase. During this time, I was also doing the usual research online and came across Triode Wire Labs that championed a "NATURAL PRAT (Pace, Rhythm & Timing), with the emphasis on natural, non-fatiguing analog sound". Also, their cables were flexible, which meant it was easier to work with for those with space constraints, and relatively affordable.

I reached out to Peter Grzybowski aka Triode Pete, founder, owner and chief designer at Triode Wire Labs, to ask him about his TWL Ten Plus power cable. Pete was extremely accommodating of all the typical newbie questions I had. In all my emails to Pete, he was always very passionate, very responsive, and very respectful. Definitely one of the good guys! After several emails, I decided on a 6ft TWL Ten Plus power cable and had to wait just a few days for it to arrive from New York thanks to FedEx International Priority Shipping.

They say the proof is in the pudding, so how did it sound? Here's the feedback I wrote to Pete after a week with the TWL Ten Plus: Have it plugged into my DAC right now and am utterly impressed. Leagues ahead of anything i've ever heard/tried in my system. So many layers of detail in the music have been revealed to me. So much more detail and clarity. Clarity not at the expense of tone. Clarity as a result of a much darker background and greater harmonics. Vocals never sounded more life-like on my system. Even at low listening levels, i'm noticing so much more detail. A true testament to the greater resolution the 10+ seems to bring out of the music.

Fast forward 11 Months and I have just completed the full loom of TWL cables with the "TWL American Speaker Cable" and I could not be happier. The cables truly are responsible for a more natural sound that isn't just smoother, but easier to listen to. During this 11 months, I've had the opportunity to listen to many more cables at varying price points and still come back to TWL. The list of TWL cables I now have are:

TWL Ten Plus PC
TWL Seven Plus PC w/ custom IeGO Pure Furukawa Copper Carbon Fibre connectors
TWL Digital American PC
TWL Spirit Interconnects RCA
TWL Spirit 75 digital SPDIF
TWL American Speaker Cables

TWL has a direct sales business model based in the US which usually means you have to buy-to-try for us folks in Singapore & Malaysia. So, I'm willing to give everyone here the opportunity to try-before-you-buy. If anyone here is interested in trying these cables in your own system, I'd be more than happy to bring them to your place so you don't have to take my word for it. Just shoot me a pm and we can arrange a time/date. 

I've asked Pete if he's able to offer us any specials and he has agreed to offer the same FedEx International Priority Shipping (3-4 working days) for FREE if you quote "TWLSG" in your correspondence with him. He also has requested that those interested in his cables email him (triodewirelabs@outlook.com) because "I prefer to have 'contact' with them, since I believe it's part of business relationship & the best way for customer service." I told you he was a top guy.



I started this thread on another Singaporean forum Xtreme... and received some enquiries from Malaysians about the free shipping code. I've since corresponded with Pete and he's agreed to extend the promotion to the Malaysian brothers and sisters as well! So, while I won't be able to provide the home-audition, Pete offers a 30-day money back guarantee on his products so at least there's that! Feel free to use the same code above!

Good info Zacho.

Is it a copper based cable or silver?

I believe it is a proprietary copper material.

Check out this video:



There are quite a few more videos on YouTube (AVShowReports) featuring TWL cables. Just do a quick search for "Triode Wire Labs" and they should populate the first page of results.


Also, there are a couple more user reviews on XtremePlace that can be found on the thread I started HERE
