Fina is a PC-OCC audiophile-grade power cable that brings together both high performance and exceptional value. Fina incorporates generously sized (3 x 14 AWG) PC-OCC conductors, which ensures that your audio components will receive optimal power delivery. Its high purity design is ideal for a large selection of source components and tube amplifiers, as well as integrated amps. Built with the same highest grade materials, geometry and construction techniques as its larger brother, The Majestic power cable, Fina differs only in using more modest-sized conductors. This makes Fina the natural complement to The Majestic power cable when used in a full-Zavfino power cable loom, where power demand dictates cable choice.
Zavfino uses on only the highest purity Japanese PC-OCC single crystal copper conductors in the Fina power cord. The 6N (99.9999%) Pure Copper (PC) Ohno Continuous Cast (OCC) copper is an extremely high quality audiophile grade conductor material and greatly appreciated for its inherent naturalness, inner warmth and absence of grain. Using a tight perfect pitch twist to construct the conductors, we deliver a no-compromise conductor with higher copper content per metre than many competing products. This tighter pitch compresses the conductor cores, which adds to the harmonically rich and complete sound Fina.
Great care goes into the preparation and production of Fina’s PC-OCC Conductors. To begin, before extrusion, the conductors are ultrasonically and thermally pre-cleaned and burned-in, which removes oil, residue and impurities that may be present after multi-stranding draw down. Then, once the variable size strands are twisted into the tight pitch finished 14 AWG individual core, it is subjected again to an ultrasonic thermal clean process, this time at an even higher voltage, eliminating any final impurities, which results in the unique pre-burn / broken-in sound inherent to Zavfino cables.
The 14 AWG PC-OCC ultrasonically cleaned bare conductors are directly sent through a pressure extruder that puts 105oC PVC insulation directly over the cores, sealing in the conductor in its purest state. Cotton filler insulation, a 100% drain shield and two braids; the first, an anti-static direct braid red polyester and; the second, a (PET) monofilament, finish off the cable before it is terminated with Zavfino’s very high quality and robust connectors.
The end result; Fina is a power cable that is dynamically impressive and open, harmonically rich and exceptionally quiet, bringing your music to life.

So this made a pretty significant change in my system plugged into my DAC, most notably in soundstaging and layering. Ended up buying a second one for a new DAC I have incoming.
Absolutely amazing power cord for the price. It has all the characteristics of their pricier PCs, PC-OCC Single Crystal 6N Copper Conductor with Tight Pitch Twist Stranding, but at 14 gauge, suitable for sources (I.e DAC, streamer, CD player). Sounds very good off the box, but it does require break in to sound best. This is a home run power cord in my book!
I was pleasantly surprised with the favorable impact the Fina had on my simple Bluesound Node digital server. Improvements in soundstage, dynamics and weight we evident from the start. I did have to use a C7 converter to be able to plug it into my Node server. I've already recommended this cable on Audiogon as well as fellow audiophile friends.
