DIY Alert: Cardas' New E-5 AC Connectors

Cardas Audio is an important manufacturer in the premium connector business offering everything from spades and bananas to chassis mount RCA's and XLR's. More recently they have developed high performance AC wall plugs and IEC's selling for only $60 each in the form of their 3455R plugs, which from a performance perspective are not embarrassed even in the company of considerably more expensive plugs from other manufacturers.

But last year for use with their own top line Clear Beyond XL power cords (now also standard on the one-step-down Clear Beyond AC cables), they wanted to develop something special. Now these new E-5 connectors ($200 each) are also available a la carte for use in DIY terminations of large diameter power cables with heavy gauge conductors. The E-5 product line includes USA and Schuko wall plugs, and both 15 amp & 20 amp IEC connectors.
