PC3  mains cord




Cleaning the mains... Caring for the music...

Since 1985, JMF Audio had focused on the cables that carry the audio information, which seems primordial. With time, questionnings regarding the influence of the mains power on the perceived sound quality became frequent. Thus we decided to study the subject, for our own sake, for our clients' statisfaction, for the music.  We measured, analysed, listened, made correlations... Tackling power line issues along with ensuring musicality, the challenge was high. It took us time, and several releases.  We developed a unique technology called EM3 and finaly the PC3 power cord became JMF Audio's noble, efficient and relevant solution. 

The PC3 power cord has a bidirectional influence. An unique approach:

On the one hand, it reduces the electromagnetic radiations and harmonic distorsion on the mains caused by the audio apparatus' power supply itself. 

On the other and, it prevents the electromagnetic interferences and harmonic distorsion caused by other devices connected to the mains from entering the audio apparatus and reach its internal power supplies, thus reducing possible interference with the digital and analog circuits. 

The PC3 also prevents from radiations to the delicate analog line cables nearby. This is mostly sensitive if unbalanced (RCA) interconnects are used.


It is made in-house by JMF Audio and is distinguished by allowing a soft natural and homogeneous sound, free from granularity, revealing an exceptional and coherent soundstage and unsuspected details of dynamics.


The PC3 power cord has powered numerous audio devices, digital or analog, in different setups with excellent results. The PC3 is recommended to complement the JMF Audio electronic elements. The philosophy is preserved, especially with the latest version. 

Since 2017, PC3 -CC (carbon) model, each individual cable has been identified with a serial number with the corresponding manufacturing and measurement notes stored in JMF Audio's files. Before delivery every cable has passed through a break-in period and listening tests in our studios for verification compared to our references. We are proud to deliver our latest models to you in the deluxe boxes they deserve.

Mr. O. G. (HQS7001, DXC2.2MKII)

"The more JMF Audio elements I add (CM4, SR8, PC3), the closer I get to the natural sound I have always looked for [...] Finally I removed my mains filter box, the PC3 performs better"


Mr. M. C. (HQS9001)

"Now with the PC3 it is a different story. That typical JMF Audio sweet and high definition sound!"


Mr. L. R. (SR8)

"I will totally equip my system with PC3 cords. They are really exceptional! They bring me so much amplitude and natural" via e-mail.


Mr. R. R. (France),

"I confirm good reception of the PC3 cords. I plugged them one after the other. The impact on my preamplifier [...] on the converter is literally amazing!!! Its influence is beneficial on virtually all possible criterions without counterparty. Congratulations on this exploit." via e-mail.
