AudioQuest NRG-Y2 AC Power Cable

    Description

    Low-Distortion 2-Pole Power Cable

    • Long-Grain Copper (LGC) and Silver-Plated Drain Wires

    • Noise-Dissipation: Quiet Background and Minimal Circuit Misbehavior Due to Direction-Controlled Conductors and Shields

    • ZERO Tech (No Characteristic Impedance) for Uncompressed Current Transfer

    THE CHALLENGE: No matter how perfect an AC power source, distortion is added within any AC cable. Even the most sophisticated filters and power supplies cannot eliminate this Transient Intermodulation Distortion (TIM) as the induced RF noise modulates the low-level audio/video signal.

    THE SOLUTION: NRG-Y2 cables use direction-controlled Long-Grain-Copper (LGC) strands in a Semi-Solid Concentric conductor arrangement in which strands are packed more tightly and never change position within the bundle. This construction significantly reduces strand interaction distortion. The greater purity and less complicated grain structure within LGC copper further reduces distortion.

    In addition, NRG-Y2’s direction-controlled Silver-Plated shield conductors efficiently drain RF noise from the line and neutral shields to ground via the third “ground” pin. The net result is powerful, dynamic and immersive!

    Features

    LONG-GRAIN COPPER (LGC)

    Long-Grain Copper (LGC) minimizes distortion caused by grain boundaries that exist within any metal conductor.

    ZERO-TECH (NO DEFINED CHARACTERISTIC-IMPEDANCE)

    While many AC power cables feature low DC resistance in order to accommodate the demand for high current, a cable’s characteristic impedance is also crucial for optimal performance. Unlike most AC cables that constrict or compress an audio-provoked transient, AudioQuest AC cables combine low DC resistance and zero (no) characteristic impedance in order to deliver uncompressed transients on demand.

    SEMI-SOLID CONCENTRIC CONDUCTORS

    In our Semi-Solid Concentric conductor topology, strands are packed more tightly and never change position within the bundle, significantly reducing strand-interaction distortion.

    SILVER-PLATED DRAIN WIRES

    Direction-controlled Silver-Plated shield conductors efficiently drain RF noise from the line and neutral shields to ground via the third “ground” pin. The net result is powerful, dynamic, and immersive.

    DIRECTION-CONTROLLED CONDUCTORS

    A fundamental aspect of AudioQuest's multifaceted Noise-Dissipation technology, Direction-Controlled Conductors assure induced noise is dissipated and drained properly.
