Most people today, accept the fact that what we feed our electronics has some affect
on how they perform. They arewhat they eat so to speak. Unfortunately, the only
fine dining establishment available is the wall plug in your home and the cuisine
often leaves much to be desired. We have attempted to address this problem for some
time. First we introduced our highly respected Blue Circle Power Line Pillow powerline
conditioners. Now we are attacking the power supply problem in another manner with
a line of very high quality power cords.
There are currently four power cords in the Blue Circle line, one model using 14
gauge wire and two using 10 gauge. There is also one 10 gauge extension cord. All
Blue Circle power cords share some basic characteristics:
All Blue Circle Power Cords are made from ultra-pure copper. All Blue Circle 10
ga. Power Cords use hospital grade male plugs. All Blue Circle 14 ga. Power Cords
use industrial grademale plugs. All Blue Circle Power Cords do not use external shields.
That last point needs some explanation. External shielding has been the way to attack
RF interference, according to conventional wisdom, for some time. Most other power
cord designs have opted for this approach. We at Blue Circle think there is a better
way. External shielding only protects for the actual length of the power cord itself;
it does nothing to attenuate any RF that is already in the supply line. Further,
most power cords using external shielding are very stiff, not flexible at all.
At Blue Circle, we have developed a special type of braiding that we call a double
reverse twist. Without going into all the science, this braiding technique attenuates
any RF that is in the line regardless of where it was introduced. It also allows
for a power cord that is very flexible and easy to use.
THE BC61 AND BC62 are our 14 gauge and 10 gauge basic power cords. Both are 6 ft
(1.83 m) long. Both are made of ultra-pure copper. The BC61 has an industrial grade male
plug. The BC62 has a hospital grade male plug. Both employ the Blue Circle double
reverse twist braiding technique.
Both pcs (BC61 & BC62) bettered my Shunyata Diamondbacks. That was confirmed (repeatedly)
with a few of my audio friends over the past couple of months. I even had to loan
them out. The BC68 has also made a noticeable improvement, at my home and at a couple
of others. There are a few more interested parties in Blue Circle! I can not wait
to hear and see their gear at the upcoming CES. I will let you know when the shipment

THE BC65 is an extension cord based on the BC62. The only difference is that the
IEC plug has been replaced with a cable-mount hospital grade receptacle.
The BC68 ... We're not sure if it's a power cord or a line conditioner so it has
its own page. Click here to decide for yourself.
All of our power cords, and our extension cord, come in a standard length of six
feet (1.83 m). If this length does not meet your needs then we would be happy to
custom build a power cord or extension cord to your specifications. The maximum length
for any of these cords is thirty feet (9.15 m). Simply contact your Blue Circle dealer,
or contact us directly with your requirements.
In closing, we have a couple of suggestions. We recommend that the BC62 be used for
high current-draw applications like power amps. We have also seen some surprising
improvements by using the BC61 on digital equipment such as DACs, transports and
DVDs. As strange as it may sound, we would like to invite you to listen to our line
of Blue Circle Power Cords. We believe you will be pleasantly surprised.
Continental European Schuko plugs are available for all Blue Circle power cords.
