AudioQuest NRG-Y2 Low-Distortion 2-Pole Power Cable
High-Value, Low-Distortion Power Cable Made for Media Streamers, Blu-ray Players, and Cable Boxes: Two-Pole AudioQuest NRG-Y2 Delivers Clearer Sound, Uses Long-Grain Copper Conductors
Made for media streamers, Blu-ray players, and cable boxes, the AudioQuest NRG-Y2 power cable delivers noticeable gains in performance over stock types. A two-pole design, NRG-Y2 uses direction-controlled Long-Grain Copper (LGC) conductors in a semi-solid concentric arrangement in which the individual copper strands are packed extremely tight and never change position.
The immediate result: significant reductions in strand interaction distortion. NRG-Y2's direction-controlled silver-plated shield conductors also efficiently drain radio-frequency noise.
Distortion-Reducing Construction: Semi-Solid Concentric Packed Long-Grain Conductors
In a conventional multi-strand cable, distortion caused by electrical and magnetic strand interaction is compounded as each strand changes position within the bundle. In an AudioQuest semi-solid concentric packed cable, strands within the bundle maintain their fixed relationships, significantly reducing distortion.
Immerse Yourself in the Moment: 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.
Uncompressed Transients on Demand: 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 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.
