An Oppo 95 Blu-Ray Player is used my source device. It is powered with an Enigma SE Power Cord. The stereo out of the Oppo is hooked up with two pairs of MA4 Reference Interconnects linking a Pre-Amp and Power Amp. The amps are powered by XPC-7 power cords. I have lived with the Enigma SE Power Cord for nearly half a year. It is a very capable and nice cable. The mid range is detailed and articulate, liquid highs and very low bottom end. Overall sound image is well balanced, precised and full. A lot of my DVDs looked very much like 720p. Blu-Rays are magnificent. Everything looks and sounds so real and natural. Below are all the equipments used in this review.

Having broke in Mojo Enigma SE for 16 days (about 384 hrs) the sound quality differences between SE and original standard Enigma 7 is very large. This is putting the cord on the Anthem Statement D2 Preamp/Processor. Music is much more coherent and with more depth and musicality. More emotion is conveyed also than with original Enigma. Watching HDTV you can hear voices much clearer, sound effects are much more noticeable. Picture looks better also. On Blu-rays the surround sound is more open and expansive, picture is clearer with more depth. (this is with the new SE cord on Preamp/Processor). Notice rear effects more!

And the cord is not even at the 500 hr mark yet which is the 80% break in point.

The Enigma power cord is one of the best sounding power cords on sources and preamps I have ever heard.  I have tried at least 10 different brands of power cords including many made by Mojo Audio. Currently I use Mojo Audio XPC-7s on most of my system and I use Enigma 7s on my Naim DAC and Anthem statement preamp processor.  I originally used an XPC-7 on these components but find the Enigma more nuanced and musically detailed. 

When comparing the XPC-7 with Furutech FI-28 plugs to the Enigma 7 with Furutech FI-15 plugs, I find the XPC-7 is more dynamic, very rhythmic and fast, but not quite as nuanced on sources.

I found XPC-7 cords sound best on power amps, power strips, and conditioners but I prefer the Enigma on preamp and source components. I highly recommend this combination of power cords.

I think this Enigma is going to be something special...it's been on the Tuner now for 24 hours, and I'm very impressed so far (borderline amazed)!

I'm already freaking out about how 3D, yet cohesive the sound field is...almost a wraparound effect, and I'm sitting in I’m almost 20' away! Also, I think the bass is the tightest and deepest it's ever been...very nice!

– Rick, Texas


The zip and boom of both the Enigma 9 and XPC-3 are wonderful. I expected a change in the high end - which both power cords deliver.But I wasn't expecting the so much extra bass extension.  The clearer transients from the high end combined with the extra bass give appropriate bass notes a growl they didn't have before.

And I just realized they haven't even burned in yet.  Wow.

Right now I have the Enigma on my Wadia CD player and the XPC-3 on my Sim Transporter.  This combination gives great cymbal clarity.

Of course, I will switch them around with other PCs in the system.

I bought a couple Enigma power cords off of you a while back.  I am happy to report that I was able to replace my Elrod EPS 3S and an ASI Liveline power cord with your cords.  I wouldn't say your cords blew those others away but they were pretty much their equal and I think I slightly preferred yours and I really prefer the price difference.  I ended up selling the other cords and keeping yours.  I am really happy with the sound value and ease of use of your cords.  Good job, it's nice to know there is such a good value out there.  I've been doing hifi for a long time and this is one of the better deals I've come across.

I'm going to share my experiences of the 3 cables that bought from you:

Cross-Helix: I first tried it on my Accuphase DP-57 CDP.  I noticed an improvement in the mids and more warmth. The vocals were also so nice and clearly present.

XPC-3: on my Accuphase CDP it beat the Cross-Helix in all ways.

Enigma: on my Accuphase CDP and the XPC-3 on my NAD S300. The result is also very noticeable, but the best combination was when I put the Enigma on the NAD S300 and XPC-3 on the Accuphase CDP.

The result is fantastic, the staging is wider with well detailed imaging. There were even some instruments that suddenly appeared that I never heard before using my old ac cables. The mids are open, clear and warm, with good dynamics and speed when a high hat is played ! And most importantly I notice significant improvement of the low bass (which is I've been expecting to get from NAD S300 for years). The bass is so much deeper and so well controlled I decide not to sell / change my lovely NAD S300 after pairing with Mojo Enigma.

So now the system is consist of:

Project RPM9 Turntable Cardas Golden Ref interconnect on turn table Accuphase DP-57 CDP w/ Mojo Audio XPC-3 Duelund Ref2 V.2 interconnect on CDP NAD S300 Integrated Amp w/ Mojo Audio Enigma Magnan Signature Speaker Cables Usher Beryllium Be-718

look forward to ordering a higher grade of Mojo Audio XPC and Enigma soon.

I hooked everything up and it sounds better already.  It should get better after the break-in! The bass seems better and tighter.  I wish I'd done this sooner.  I used the Enigma 9 for my phono stage.  I used the Enigma 7's on my CD and preamp.  I used the XPC-7's on my conditioner and amp.  I used an XPC-3 on my TT because that cable actually feeds a 120V/240V step-up transformer because the Thorens is a 240V TT.  I used the other XPC-3 on my subwoofer which I never mentioned before.  I have a JL Audio sub with 2 eight inch speakers and...It made my sub sound better.

I have been using the Straightwire TPC power cords for a long time even though my system has evolved over time.  I have compared these cords with the Tara Labs Prime, API Power Link 313, and most  recently with Pangea cords (a friend’s cords) and always to come back to the TPCs because of their musicality.  Now, even after just a couple of days of just one Enigma in my system (powering my amp), I can tell you that the Enigma is a much better cord in musical terms.  The Enigma just sounds right, it is more musical.

The high end sounds extended w/o being harsh.  The low frequencies sound solid and punchy.  The mids sound alive.  But the most impressive portion of the sound is the soundstage.  I feel I can reach deeper into it.

Listening to jazz, the brush hitting the cymbals sound amazing.  Just real, with the delicacy, but steely, sound of metal.  Female voices just sound in my room.  I could go on and on, but you get the idea that I really love the sound of this cord.  Physically, I am surprised at how flexible, for a 9 gauge, this cord is.  It is well made and the connectors are something special as well.

Now, I want to replace the other 3 cords in my system with exactly the same cord I just got from you.  I better start saving.

You've outdone yourself with the new plugs on these cables. Are they available for my Ribbons?

I am a great fan of single ended 300B amps, and currently use an Art Audio Symphony ll and a custom 300B from 3Dimension Audio, with a Flora EX DT preamp and Ocellia Tilia and Diatone speakers, both of which are single driver full range designs. My favorite source at present is a 47 Labs Shigaraki transport into a Progression DAC. Interconnects are all Mojo Audio, and so are all my digital leads and power cords. 

The addition of the Mojo Audio products has allowed me to realize my goal with these systems, which has always been to manifest the drive and control of transistor or push pull amplifiers with the tonal accuracy of 300B single ended amps, despite the print media's allegations that the domain of single ended amps is romantic euphonics and less than ideal reproduction of frequency extremes. These things are possible with tubes, with the proper attention to matching components and the connections between them, along with precise speaker placement. Of course, a lifetime of working in live music venues has given me a specific set of values in regards to what live music sounds like, from Opera to Ozzy.

In case anyone else reads these words, my recommendation is to get the best components you can afford, even if they are bought second hand through venues such as Audiogon, and link them together with Mojo Audio interconnects and power them with Mojo Audio power cords. The result is what has always been my personal goal with my systems and is the acclaimed goal of many an audiophile - realism in music reproduction. This is what I have had for many years, and the addition of the Mojo Audio products has enhanced this experience. The imaging and tonality of a good recording is all there, along with instruments that have their own individual dynamics, and vocals that come from people - human and present in the room when they are well captured in the recording.

I can pay no higher complement to any audio product, as my concern is NOT for whether or not one can hear the second violinist scratch himself 0.23 seconds into the second movement of whatever oeuvre and the hyper detailing that is the current object of worship of the print media in their obvious attempts at pushing the products that advertise in their magazines.

I don't work for Ben or have any stock in the company, I am just a very happy customer.

Congratulations on a great range of products at affordable prices.

Yours Truly,

I hooked the enigma to a heater for 400 hours and that seems to have "loosened" it up some- more open, coherent, etc but I still think it will improve with 50 to 100 more hours of real music as you suggest. I'd like to leave you a review if you like. The synergy of the Enigma on my DAC with the rest of my stereo is truly remarkable (even at this stage of break in). The sound stage on good recordings  is spectacular.

The [Cross-Helix] cables spoke for themselves. Not only were they better than my reference, they had zero hours of burn-in time. Even from first play they were more detailed, had more musical flow, and were more extended than ANY of the cables I had heard in my system—and by a long shot. Not only that, but they do the EXACT same thing in every system I have demoed them in!

The Mojo Audio [Cross-Helix] power cord has beaten in my system or systems I’ve heard: Transparent, Virtual Dynamics Genesis $6,000, Tara Labs Cobolt $2,500, Less Loss DFPC Signature $1,125, Shunyata King Cobra $800, Shunyata Anaconda $1,000, DCCA Master Reference $1,700, Argento FMR $7,000, Venhaus Flavor PCs, Stealth Dream $3,500, and Purist Audio Design.

Ben was truly a pleasure to deal with, informative and honest. [Cross-Helix] was sonic improvement over my previous hi-fi cable. Would buy again without hesitation.

– Mikie, Audiogon.com feedback

I have four Mojo Audio Cross-Helix Power Cords in my system. I have used JPS, Kimber Cable, Shunyata, and Furutech power cords. Mojo Audio [Cross-Helix] power cords are more musically involving with better pace and rhythm than other power cords I have tried. You hear all the musicians playing their instruments individually so much better with Mojo Audio [Cross-Helix] cords!

I highly recommend these power cords. If you enjoy music or great home theater sound, Mojo Audio power cords demand a try! Once they are on your system, you will be thrilled with results!

– Jeff, North Carolina


Other than Mojo Audio [Cross-Helix power] cords, I enjoy Nirvana Audio, DCCA Music Reference, Black Sand Silver Reference, Jena Labs Model One, Audio Prism Super Natural, Less Loss DFPC, and others. In the context of the current system, none of these were preferred over the Mojo Audio cords.

My impression of the Mojo Audio Cross-Helix Power Cords has changed very little over the last month of continuous use...immediately pleasing and easy to listen to...smooth break-in...so well-balanced that no single feature stands out. Neither dark nor light/transparent sounding...particularly expressive midrange...their fantastic dynamic range is most notable when listening to vocals which are rendered as textured, lifelike, natural, not hyped, and especially uncompressed...so well-balanced that the slightly soft treble never seems lacking...compare very well to the non-Sig Less Loss cords but with an even more expressive midrange, capable of portraying subjectively more emotion and nuance...tight, tuneful bass.

At current, best-value prices, Mojo Audio [Cross-Helix power] cords should be on everyone’s short list of “all good” products to audition.

I purchased two of your [Cross-Helix] PCs via Audiogon/Ebay and they arrived yesterday in good shape, thanks. I plugged ’em in right away, they sounded terrible. I listened for a little while but gave up—really terrible. I’m thinking, oooh mannn, now I’m going to have to contact them for a refund. I turned down the music and left the room. Four hours later I go back in my listening room and WHAT THE HECK?? These are not e-v-e-n the same cables.

After a four hour relaxing period these PCs had changed from awful to incredible! I have literally waited months on some cables in the past to open up—these did it in four hours.

What I hear: Black/quiet background—NO, I MEAN R-E-A-L-L-Y BLACK/QUIET BACKGROUND! Laser beam-lightning fast sound! Very strong, balanced, musical with wide open soundstage. Excellent bass. Excellent imaging! Hell, it’s all excellent!!!

I have these on my CDP and pre-amp. I am very, very happy AND satisfied with your power cables! Thank you for such a superior product at near Walmart pricing.

I’m very happy with your [Cross-Helix] power cord. I have it on my processor and I immediately noticed the difference in something that has bothered me ever since I have had a home theater: I really have been unable to appreciate music. There was a definite loss in dynamics, richness, natural voice sound, and sound staging in width and dimension. I lost the nuances.

Well, I’m thrilled to say a lot of it has come back. The voice was the first thing I noticed. It’s richer, clearer, and more natural sounding. On top of that, the whole system is more clean sounding, richer, has more dimensionality, and the surround experience is more cohesive. I was unimpressed with the rear channels speakers previously. No distinct sounds. Not anymore. They are more articulate than I have ever heard. Music is definitely an improvement now as well.

I am happy to say that I now know that a power cord can make a difference.

I did extensive power cable listening tests comparing an 11 AWG Zu Bok, a 13 AWG Mac Ultimate Source, and an early generation 10AWG nonbraided Mojo Audio NOS WE cord with Furutech connectors. I really hated the SQ of the Zu Bok as the low frequencies were nonexistent in comparison. Overall I preferred the Mojo Audio 10AWG nonbraided power cord with Furutech connectors.

The Mojo Audio [Cross-Helix] PC is probably my best investment so far. I believe it brought out the full potential of the DAC.

– Tigger’s 2 Channel Stack, posted to Audiogon’s forum


I bought one of your 2M Cross-Helix power cables via your ebay auction, and received it today. I cannot believe a power cable made this much difference. I was extremely skeptical before I heard it-- I thought that if it did make an audible difference, it wouldn't be anything that striking. But, on the contrary, the change is remarkable. I tried the Joe Henderson Big Band CD first, because the recording is excellent and there's a lot going on. I could hear, for the first time, the nuances of the drummer's soft rim shots, not to mention the resonance of Henderson's horn. The sound stage is much more spacious. On the Test of Time DSD remaster of Art Farmer's 'Yesterday's Thoughts' the drum kit and bass are so present that they truly do sound 'in the room', while Farmer's flugel swells warmly around the rest of the band. And the opening telecaster chords of Jimmie Dale Gilmore's 'Spinning Around the Sun' have all the grit a tele should have, while the bass blooms menacingly beneath the music. Anyway, etc etc. A big difference across the spectrum on my Acurus DIA-150. Many thanks.
