The Amethyst cable name is part of EGM Audio’s gemstone naming convention and is the entry-level power cable in the range. It easily betters a standard power cable for audio or video equipment. Naturally EGM Audio makes the Amethyst to exactly the same high standards of construction as every cable they manufacture.
The Amethyst audio grade power cable utilises three 16AWG or 1.5mm2 cores of high purity 99.999% OFC electrolytic copper, with EMI/RFI shielding to lower the noise floor and to provide protection from music destroying electromagnetic and radio frequency interference. The cable is a dark purple colour and has a 12mm outer diameter and uses gold plated plug pins.
How does it Sound?
The Amethyst is a great way to start your audio journey, but don’t be fooled by the attractive price. This is an audio grade cable that uses copper cores that are double the diameter of the freebie giveaway cables that are included in the box. The Amethyst sounds the closest to the Ruby and has a smooth, detailed sound and is very easy to listen to. This cable helps to produce a wide soundstage with space around the instruments and definition in the vocals. The timing is accurate and is capable of relaying rhythmic swings in the music, allowing it to work equally well with all genres. The shielding also helps to have quiet black backgrounds.
It doesn’t have the same harmonic richness of the Black Pearl or Emerald, but unless your system is capable of resolving the differences you are simply wasting your money. The bass depth is a little thin by comparison with the others in the range but this may suit a system where there is too much bass and you would like to trim it. The sound is honest and it will never exaggerate negative aspects.
EGM Audio Recommendation:
Our entry level cable, best suited for any audiophile who wants start upgrading their systems - Suitable for all audio and AV applications. Recommend Length 2 metre.
What is Cable Burn-in?
All cables and especially highly revealing audio cables require a little time to settle and start performing at their optimum. There are many opinions as to why this well-known phenomenon happens, but we won't get bore you with it. Although they can often sound good immediately, we recommend that you allow EGM cables at least 48 hrs of constant use before doing any critical listening. This initial period of time will make the largest difference to the sound quality. For the next week or two the cable will continue to improve, but in smaller increments.
A fully burned-in cable will sound smoother and more musical. It will also have better timing, imaging, treble detail, bass power and control as well as being less fatiguing to listen to.

The EGM Family Sound
As is often the case with high-end audio manufacturers, all of the EGM audio grade power cables have a “family sound”. What is it and will it suit you?
EGM audio specialist power cables are designed to sound smooth, articulate, revealing and with just a touch of warmth. You will hear this with all our power cables, from the entry-level through to our flagship. We believe that you should never experience unpleasant surprises when upgrading cables throughout our range. As you spend a little more and move up to the Black Pearl and Emerald range you can expect to hear even more from your music, with more detail, quieter backgrounds and a fuller, richer sound.
EGM audio grade power cables do not sound artificial, overly bright or harmonically out of balance, but have a lovely smooth top to bottom balance and neutrality that we have become well known for.
Why should I use EGM Audio grade power cables?
Many people have asked us what is the difference between EGM Audio cables and the thin moulded cheaply made cable included in the box. It’s the sound quality. Technically both do the job, but only a specialised audio cable allows your audio device to sound the way it was meant to. When you stop to compare the quality of the conductors, the wire diameter and extensive use of electromagnetic and radio-frequency shielding, it’s little wonder that EGM audio grade power cables are superior sounding by a large margin. EGM has spent over 2 years of R&D looking into their new cable range, with extensive listening tests and prototyping so that you can enjoy world-class products at a reasonable price.
EGM is proud that every cable they manufacture uses the same standard of workmanship, the same high grade protective outer sheath, the same 100mm protective heat-shrink covers on both ends of the wires and is hand made by people with years of experience in the audio industry. Every cable is individually tested for quality guarantee. All the cable’s in the range are shielded against destructive EMI/RFI and is available in standard & custom lengths and with a wide variety of International & IEC plug tops to suit almost every audio or AV device.
