Product Description

Ecosse Big Orange GR8 is an excellent upgrade for any equipment that takes a figure 8 connector, an alternative to the other Ecosse Big Orange power cable that is fitted with an IEC plug.


This multistranded cable is built for greater rejection of electromagnetic and radio-frequency interference which means it suits all source components and amplifiers up to about 75w rms/channel. Ecosse guarantees that it will improve the component's performance raised by an order of magnitude. Bass is more extended, leading edges more sharply defined and pitch easier to determine.

Wire ends are prepared using our Supersolder to maximise contact and minimise long term degradation which, together with the use of high quality mains and IEC plugs alternative fitted with the figure 8 connector, makes this the entry level mains cable to beat. Available as standard in 1m, 1.5m, 2.0m lengths but ANY cable length can be custom made to order.

Big Orange GR8

Not only will these mains cables achieve remarkable improvements in both picture (vision) and sound (audio) on Sky and Virgin HD boxes, they achieve equally remarkable results on any AV device that is fitted with a figure-of-eight mains socket-including CD players, standard DVD and Blu-ray, standard satellite boxes, video and dvd recorders and - for which these products are essential partners - the AC-DC transformer that accompany phono stages, headphone amps and turntables.

High Quality

What these products do is free you from the cheap, flimsy and hopeless supplied mains leads, which can then be used more appropriately to tie up your bin liners. So what can you expect from these products? Firstly, the same technology that went into our world beating and multi-award winning IEC terminated mains leads. Secondly, they make redundant the figure - of- 8 - to- IEC converters that you may be using - since daisy-chaining leads and converters in this way will degrade the picture/sound quality due to the extra resistance inductance and capacitance created by the change in metals at these contact points.

Here are the facts

Visual; Deeper blacks; finer detail, more vivid colours and clarity; greater contrast; more depth, creating almost 3D picture; better able to follow the action; more engrossing; more light. Audio: clearer centre channel/speech detail; deeper and stronger bass; greater separation; more expansive surround sound; more involving soundtrack; better able to follow the dialogue; greater dynamics; wider more holographic 360 soundstage; bigger/bolder drama

Why is this possible?

The use of better more highly screened conductor material ensures faster processing and less 'noise' interference. Superior OFC and Monocrystal conductor material used in the Big Orange GR8 HD and Big Red GR8 HD respective has far superior screening of the conductors to remove intrusion of RFI's and EMI's. The deployment of highly superior grade hand-wired mains plugs are each hand assembled and checked by Ecosse engineers.

Patented Design

What sets Ecosse above its rivals is that the cables both screen and earth wire act as drain for extraneous 'noise' interference via a clever patented, secret Ecosse device. Finally, the figure of 8 plug is hand-wired unlike the moulded out-the-box bog standard plug that came with your product.

The difference power cable can make to your listening experience and enjoyment is, quite simply, breathtaking... and remember, great sounding powerchords don't have to be expensive and may well be the cheapest, most cost effective up-grade your system requires.
