Audioquest NRG-4 AC Power Cord (3-POLE) (3FT)
The Audioquest NRG-4 Power Cord uses solid Perfect-Surface Copper+ (PSC+) / PSC conductors in a Self Shielding Counter-Spiral Hyperlitz. Solid conductors prevent strand interaction, which is the greatest single source of distortion in an audio cable or an AC power cable!
No matter how perfect an AC power source, distortion is added within any cable carrying AC, especially within any stranded cable. Even the most sophisticated power supplies and filters cannot completely eliminate these upstream irregularities.
The Audioquest NRG-4 Power Cord uses solid Perfect-Surface Copper+ (PSC+) / PSC conductors in a Self Shielding Counter-Spiral Hyperlitz. Solid conductors prevent strand interaction, which is the greatest single source of distortion in an audio cable or an AC power cable. PSC+ copper’s exceptionally high purity, nearly perfect surface finish, and refined interior grain structure dramatically reduce distortion compared to OFHC or other metals. The Counter-Spiral geometry minimizes conductor interaction while maintaining a fixed low-inductance relationship between conductors.
The Audioquest NRG-4 Power Cord’s two RF Stoppers filter Radio Frequency Interference in both directions. They prevent outside interference from entering the equipment, and they prevent equipment generated interference (from all digital equipment and tuners) from reaching other equipment in the system.
"The NRG-4 had excellent dimensionality with good lateral presentation and an exceedingly well-focused center soundstage. A sense of modest micro-dynamic comporession of the deep bass seemed to limit its slam, but this subtraction was more than made up for by a sense of speed and pace that was rhythmically very satisfying... An excellent all-around performer that sweats the smaller stuff." - Neil Gader, The Absolute Sound, December 2010
