    All new Tarantula MK6 is a completely new mains cable. Constructed using 3 x 2.5 mm twisted high purity oxygen free copper conductors to low resistance and give greater current handing. The conductors are coated with an extremely high grade LDPE which has a much better dielectric constant than the regular PVC used in on most mains cables. An Ali/Mylar screen with drain wire is employed to shield the cable as well as a conductive carbon screen which is then finished in flexible PVC outer.

    The radiated and transmitted RF and Em Interference channelled into the equipment by regular mains cables tends to manifest itself as distortion of image or picture on AV equipment or loss of focus on audio so it is essential as much is removed as possible and at the same time lower the resistance of the circuit to increase dynamics.

    Very few cables at this price point offer much improvement at all, never mind to the standard of our new Tarantula. It is designed to bring extended dynamics and vibrancy to all components by lowering the noise floor.

    The new Tarantula represents the very best value for money for someone sceptical about mains cables and who just wants to sample a change for as little outlay as possible.

    This cable is terminated with a Re-wireable UK plug and has the option of a 2 pin figure 8 or 3 pin 10 Amp IEC plug as standard.

    "The company’s MK6 version is a spectacular improvement. Plug it into hi-fi electronics and, compared with your standard kettle lead, the Tarantula helps your system produce a much cleaner, smoother sound.

    The lack of noise allows more detail to seep through into the soundstage, with greater separation between instruments and vocals.

    But the benefits aren’t just hi-fi based: plug the cable into a TV, and images appear crisper, while there’s greater punch to the overall picture."

    Outstanding mains cable, in the hi fi world clean mains is a must, so how does it sound, pretty good, transparency is first rate bass is taut, midrange expansive treble sweet, in short it introduces a more smooth analogue sound.

    I don't know how those guys did the magic, but the cable works as described. Way much better detail and focus of soundstage than the bundled mains cable. I see no point to stay skeptical and you should buy one to see what I mean. Lastly, nice thing costs money. This pricier Merlin Tarantula sounds better than a bit lower-cost Cu Axxxx One counter part to me.

    I believe my original opinion regarding power cable upgrades was much the same as most peoples, skeptical. But having just received my Merlin Tarantula cable and given it a thorough comparison to the original cable supplied with my Rotel RA-12 amp I simply can not believe the improvement. Any doubters out there, try one and become an advocate. : )

    I've spent some serious money over the years on hi-fi and was always sceptical about the difference a metre of mains cable could make given the miles of cable the electricity has to travel to get to my house. I bit the bullet and ordered 5 of these, one for each of the Cyrus components I have and all I can say is I'm glad I did! I loved the sound before the upgrade but there's now a coherence to the sound that simply didn't exist before, im not sure how to describe it but everything sounds - bigger and it's not subtle, either. I'm not clued up on the science and physics of these things and can only conclude that these cables are sorting out an issue with my power supply, but all that doesn't matter, right? I'm now getting a more engaging sound from my hi-fi and I'm chuffed with it (until the upgrade itch appears again!). Ordered Thursday afternoon, arrived on Friday. Great service, free postage too.
