Active Shielding / Zero Reactive Capacitance: In transparent SOTA systems, the TESLA SE Hologram A reigns supreme as our reference power cord for amplifiers and pre-amplifiers. It blends an intoxicating combination of precise image placement with holographic illumination that expands the boundaries of your sound-stage. A cable of rich harmonic texture and layering, TESLA SE Hologram A delivers clean power to amplifiers and pre-amplifiers for amazing detail and air that is never fatiguing while low frequencies are tight and deeply extended with realistic attack and control.
The new TESLA SE AC Power Cords feature the ability to change their voicing via three different Active Shielding Modules “Enigma Bullets”. Each Module features a different sonic characteristic:
• Silver Module = Open and airy
• Black Module = Warm and rich
• Grey Module = A hybrid of both the Black and Silver
Now you can fine tune your system’s AC to perfectly match your components, and when or if you change components, you can change the voicing as well. It’s like having 3 power cords in 1.

Our new Quantum Tunneled G 07 wall plugs and IEC’s utilize a 100% gold signal and ground conductors; from signal contact blades to termination blocks. This allows the G 07 to really push the envelope, with gold delivering a light transparent warmth, and Quantum Tunneling providing detail in a massive and liquid soundscape. The G 07’s balance is liquid, highly detailed, and musical. Please see image below.
When cabling a system with TESLA SE Hologram power cords, start by placing TESLA SE Hologram D‘s on your digital components first. Next place TESLA SE Hologram A or TESLA SE T3 on your pre-amplifier (if comparing, place a stock power cord on your power amplifier and select between TESLA SE T3 and TESLA SE Hologram A). Finally, compare TESLA SE Hologram A to TESLA SE Precision AC on your amplifier. Always select the cable that best complements your system and personal tastes.

Combining Precision AC and Hologram Power Cords in SOTA Systems: Our lead designer Ted Denney on design considerations that went into voicing the TESLA SE Hologram and TESLA SE Precision Series power cords.
“I designed the TESLA SE Hologram A and TESLA SE Precision AC cords as counterparts to my TESLA SE Hologram D. Used together they form a flexible power cord system that will complement a wide variety of components and acoustics. The TESLA SE Hologram D is a no compromise power cord for digital sources that presents resolution and ambient retrieval with a natural non-fatiguing analog sound and as such is the corner stone to my ultra high end power cord system.
Like many of my fellow audiophiles, I love the sound of analog playback and strive for the resolution and holographic presence I get from top-flight turntables, tonearms, and cartridges, when listening to digital playback. Sadly, most digital front ends are compromised by power cords and digital cables that sound either overly warm and hence veiled and spatially compressed, or thin and clinical lacking harmonic texture and presence.
I designed my TESLA SE Hologram D to enable digital sources to present detail in an enormous sound field that is liquid with abundant texture and layering. The TESLA SE Hologram D excels in illuminating the boundaries of a sound field by allowing a recording’s natural air and layering to come shining through in a decidedly non-digital way.
To create balance between my different power cords start with TESLA SE Hologram A or TESLA SE T3 on your preamplifier, with TESLA SE Hologram D on your digital components. Lastly, compare TESLA SE Hologram A to TESLA SE Precision AC on your amplifier. While TESLA SE Precision AC is engineered and voiced to excel in pin-point imaging, TESLA SE Hologram A is engineered and voiced to combine pin-point imaging with harmonic richness and fluid illumination of a sound fields boundaries. The final choice between TESLA SE Precision AC and TESLA SE Hologram A on your amplifier will depend on your components, listening room, and personal taste, and when you make this decision a system wide synergy is created.”
