Audioquest NRG-Z3 - UK Plug to IEC
Audioquest NRG-Z3 Power Cable
NRG-Z3 (3-pole) cables use direction-controlled Perfect-Surface Copper (PSC) conductors in a Semi-Solid Concentric arrangement in which the individual copper strands are packed more tightly and never change position within the bundle. This construction significantly reduces strand interaction distortion. The astonishingly smooth and pure Perfect-Surface conductors minimize distortion caused by grain boundaries and surface discontinuities that exist in any metal conductor. In addition, NRG-Z3's direction-controlled silver-plated shield conductors efficiently drain RF noise to ground.
Semi-Solid Concentric Perfect-Surface Copper (PSC) Conductors
In a Semi-Solid Concentric arrangement, the conductor strands are packed more tightly and never change position within the bundle. This construction significantly reduces strand-interaction distortion. The high-purity and smooth-surface PSC conductors minimize distortion caused by the grain boundaries that exist within any metal conductor.
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.
Zero 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.
