LC-3 EVO is the best, copper, power cord, we have ever produced. The cable construction has been completely redesigned. Technical solutions are closer to those used in the top LS series.
Conductors are made from 99,997% pure copper (OFHC C10100, 5N), additionally subdued to an annealing process, which allows them to gain uniform structure and better conductance.
The design is a 8 x 1.5 mm2 lead, where each lead consist of 7 strands, spun in a tight pitch.
Twisted conductors ensure significant cable inductance reduction, maintaining favourable quite high self-capacitance.
The wires of the cable are protected by a static shield, made from laminated aluminum foil. The tight construction of the shield covers 100% of the surface of the cable, perfectly protecting against all kinds of external interference, and EMI and RFI noises.
In addition the shield prevents the appearance and spread of internal interferences as well as returns parasitic currents to the ground wire. In the construction of the cable a lot of attention was devoted to the reduction of the vibration created by the electromagnetic field induced around the conductors.
All wires and the shield are covered with elastic material damping the unwanted vibration. The cable is additionally protected from the outside with antistatic braid, which prevents static charges accumulation.
The LC-3 EVO uses the highest quality, company mains plugs. Their massive construction ensures extraordinary durability and reliability. Casing of the plugs is made of compact aluminium. Their solid connectors are made of rhodium plated brass , which guarantees low impedance and larger amount of connecting cycles with no parameters loss . Connectors were additionally subject to cryogenic treatment and de-magnetization. All conductors are connected with no use of tin, and plug connections are bolted which minimizes plug impedance and guarantees reliability.
LC-3 EVO is designed for advanced audio systems. It can successfully power the strip or conditioner to which the whole system is connected. Due to its large cross-section it is particularly recommended for applications related to high power consumption. This cable is also available in the high-current version as LC-3HC EVO. The cable is then terminated with a PowerCon 32 Amp connector, capable of carrying a constant load of 32 A. The BOX version is packaged in an ecological wooden box.

In the opinion of specialist audio magazines the devices from GigaWatt are among the best in the world, both in terms of effectiveness and manufacturing quality, and even surpass the standards used in the branch setting new masters. This statement is confirmed by many reviews and prestigious awards given to GigaWatt products. You can find some of them below:

“GigaWatt cable evidently improves the clarity and contours of the sound, especially in the bass range. The effect of “detaching” the sound, especially in the transmission of rhythmics and information given in the full band, will be very audible mainly in well configured audio systems. “”The LC-3 MK3 + allows you to play the music easily – I would describe this effect as a kind of “unchoke” of the sound in the low tones range and improvement of the presented dynamics at the macro scale. Despite the fact that the sound has become more and more popular in the reception and the order has appeared not only in bass and midrange, but also in the range of treble, I additionally heard an improvement in dynamics. Spectacular loudness jumps during listening to classical music, and sudden changes in rhythmics, especially in jazz, were transmitted with a better selection of the beginning and end of the reverberations of individual sounds. “

“The difference in sound, compared to my usual cabling was noticeable, with tube as well as with solid state amplifiers. The LC-3 Mk3 provided more pleasure from listening”
“Having at my disposal four very high quality cables LC-3, for 900 Euro each, I connected them to my power amplifiers. Two to the Primare power amps, powering the bass modules of my Triangle Grand Concert and two to the Air Tight monoblocs, which amplify the midrange segments.”
”You do not need to have trained ears to hear, that the amplifiers worked on highest level: music gained more saturation. Localization and the energy of the recordings improved, the sound stage became wider and deeper. I was happy with this setup for a few days, knowing that I would not want to return to my previous combination of cables: the enrichment of the sound was obvious. The sound was a tad warmer than with my own cables, but I got used to that very quickly and felt comfortable.”

“The change was easily perceived – higher dynamics, more powerful, better controlled bass foundation, openness of the sound as well as a general impression of sound being cleaner. Those were of course no “giant” changes, but clear and very positive.”
“There was a certain calming down of the sound, not related to limitation of dynamics, but to further tidying of the sound and showing it against a darker background. The definition of bass, although very good before, was further improved, the sound, as I mentioned before, tidier, was also more dynamic, in the sense of reproducing the dynamic changes better (also the small ones) and showing a greater dynamic scale. I had the impression, that the whole system reproduces the music with more breath and swing.”
“The Gigawatt LC-3 Mk3 is a cable, which does not limit the powered system or device. It fares very well, when it has to master high power demands. It gives an effect of freedom, dynamics and cleanness of presentation. The effect of the black background exposes even the smallest details and underlines the timbre of the instruments and vocals. What is important, with the imposing dynamics you get also a sense of quieting down, sorting out of the presentation, what can be fully appreciated changing from another cable (for example the version Mk2) to the tested one (or even better, when returning to the “lesser” power cord). The power amplifier powered directly by this cable gains expression, freedom and dynamics of sound.”
