DO NOT MISS THIS ONE !!!!!!
One of Audio Quest's finest AC power cables. NIB with full warranty.
6 foot - silver conductors / 15A male plug on supply end with 15A female IEC connector on equipment end (silver contacts throughout). Should work with almost any gear.
This was ordered for a client's package, but the specs changed.....so this one is up for sale at a greatly reduced price.
AC power cables have been the subject of debate, fanaticism,
accolades, and scorn. How can the last few feet make any difference? It’s
actually the differences that they don’t make which are so profound. Properly
designed power cords Do No Harm! to the original AC waveform. This would seem
rather obvious, but it’s not until you audition a high-performance power cord
for the first time that this becomes obvious.
SOLID PERFECT-SURFACE COPPER+ (PSC+) CONDUCTORS:
NRG-1000 uses extremely high-purity Perfect-Surface Copper+ conductors. All
conductors are solid, which prevents strand interaction, a major source of
distortion. Surface quality is critical because a conductor can be considered a
rail-guide for both the electric fields within a conductor, and for the magnetic
fields outside the conductor. The astonishingly smooth and pure PSC+ eliminates
harshness and greatly increases clarity compared to OFHC, OCC, 8N and other
coppers. The superior purity of PSC+ further minimizes distortion caused by
grain boundaries, which exist within any metal conductor.
CARBON-BASED NOISE-DISSIPATION and CROSS-TALK-DISSIPATION SYSTEMS (INSULATION): The
negative conductors in NRG-1000 are insulated with partially conductive
Carbon-Loaded Polyethylene. This remarkable material damps radio-frequency
garbage from being fed back into the amplifier. The sonic benefit is exactly
the same reduction in “hash” and better dimensionality that comes whenever RF
garbage is reduced in an audio circuit. NRG-1000 uses Foamed-Polyethylene
Insulation on its positive conductors because air absorbs next to no energy,
and Polyethylene is low-loss and has a benign distortion profile. Thanks to all
the air in Foamed-PE, it causes much less of the out-of-focus effect common to
GEOMETRY: NRG-1000 power cables have an inner circular array of positive
conductors spiraling in one direction. Around this inner group are the negative
conductors spiraling in the opposite direction. Even while the positive and
negative conductors are crossing each other instead of being parallel, the
relationship between the positive and negative groups is fixed and
non-changing, adhering to one of AudioQuest’s most basic design tenets:
consistency. The result is an astonishing clarity, like focusing a camera lens
you had no idea was so far out of focus.
SYSTEM (DBS, US Pat #s 7,126,055 & 7,872,195 B1): All
insulation slows down the signal on the conductor inside. When insulation is
unbiased, it slows down parts of the signal differently, a big problem for very
time-sensitive multi-octave audio. AudioQuest’s DBS creates a strong, stable
electrostatic field which saturates and polarizes (organizes) the molecules of
the insulation. This minimizes both energy storage in the insulation and the
multiple nonlinear time-delays that occur. Sound appears from a surprisingly
black background with unexpected detail and dynamic contrast. The DBS battery
packs will last for years. A test button and LED allow for the occasional
SYSTEM: This novel plug design enables a perfect heat-free
connection between cable and plug. The connection between the plug and
conductors is made using AQ’s Cold-Weld System, which provides a superior
connection that ensures that the structural integrity of the conductor is kept
completely intact. The Cold-Weld System refers to a combination of high
pressure at the point of contact and the use of copper- or silver-impregnated
Hanging Silver Directly Over Pure Red Copper IEC and 3-Pole US wall plug (20
Amp IEC also available).
