Supra spent over five years in research and development for the new LoRad shielded mains cable, which is now available in the UK.
The benefits of LoRad have been established for some time now - as the cable is one of the few available worldwide that is fully CE approved. The main benefit is the shielding which helps to ensure that other low level signal cables are not affected by the close proximity of the LoRad mains cable - induced RF interference has been one of the biggest bug-bears of high quality audio and video reproduction and so by equipping one's hi-fi or AV system with LoRad, you should both see and hear a difference.
LoRad is a CE-approved audio grade replacement mains cable and it is available for home DIY'ers to terminate with their own choice of mains connectors such as MK Toughplug, Schuko and IEC320 connectors.
You can also buy LoRad 1.5 as a factory terminated, BS approved replacement UK > IEC mains leads.
Basic technical specifications:
3x 1.5mm sq. cores of tin-plated multi-stranded OFC cable
External Diameter: 8.0mm
Brown (Live), Blue (Neutral) and Green/Yellow (Earth) coloured insulation jackets.
Semi-conductive earth insulation - no drain wires !!
High quality 99.99% coverage foil screen
Highly flexible outer insulation (easily passed CE-regulation 2x 30,000x "bends" test !!)
Approx. 10A rating (@ 230V)
LoRad is one of the few audio grade replacement shielded mains cables in the world with full European safety approval Safety approved in compliance with HD 21.5 S3
Tips and Tricks:
A simple way to check the cable radiation is to use an AC field sensor.
Hold the AC sensor against a cable and if it lights up it means the cable is radiating noise fields. Of course, the cable must be connected to the wall socket that is switched on. Check LoRad in the same way and you will find that it does not indicate any noise radiation.

Do you see the difference? - the unshielded cable makes the detector glow RED, while the LoRad shielded cable radiates no interference at all.........!

LoRad Screened Mains Flex, Patented
1.5 and 2.5 mm² conductor diameters, highly flexible, specification 05VA7V-H 3G2.5.
LoRad stands for Low Radiation of electric and magnetic alternating fields. Protects your equipment from radiated mains noise as well as from RF pick-up. The screen protects from the electric field and a short pitch twisting protects from and cancels the magnetic fields. This will typically result in a cleaner sound and more accurate transients, which in turn give you a tighter bass, better 3-D presence and stereo definition.
Closer to the truth.
Supra’s screening concept is patented worldwide by Tommy Jenving.
Carry out your own test!

Custom Cable will use Royal Mail International Airmail worldwide for all items less than 2.0kgs. Items more than 2.0kgs can be sent using Parcel Force Worldwide, UPS or DHL. When processing your order we select which courier will get the order to you the fastest. If you wish to specify which courier to use then please let us know is the "Notes" section when checking out. For countries outside of the EU you may be required to pay state taxes or import duties. Unfortunately we are unable to cover these costs, so please be aware that you may be required to pay these.
For countries inside the EU delivery times are estimated between 3-7 working days and slightly longer for all countries outside of the EU.
Customers in certain countries are also able to choose Royal Mail International Airsure. Airsure® is generally a day faster than standard Airmail and can be tracked online. Which means the aim is:
- 2 working days after posting to Western Europe
- 4 working days after posting to Eastern Europe and postal subsidiaries (Islands and Principalities)
- 6 working days after posting to the rest of the world
The above standards are monitored by the independent and impartial International Post Corporation to ensure reliable and consistent delivery, which is why Airsure® is only available to selected countries.
Please note that Airsure® is an upmarket mail, not a courier service. This means we cannot provide a guaranteed or certain delivery time, nor can we offer compensation for delays or missing Track & Trace information.
