Description

Low-Distortion 3-Pole Power Cable

Perfect-Surface Copper (PSC) Conductors with Silver-Plated Drain Wires
Quiet Background and Minimal Active-Circuit Misbehavior Due to RF/ND-Tech (US Patent # 8,988,168) & Direction-Controlled Conductors and Shields
ZERO (No) Characteristic Impedance (Uncompressed Current Transfer)

THE CHALLENGE: Regardless of how perfect an AC power source is, distortion is added within any AC cable. Even the most sophisticated filters and power supplies cannot eliminate this distortion, known as Transient Intermodulation Distortion (TIM), when induced RF noise modulates the low-level audio/video signal.

THE SOLUTION: NRG-Z3 cables use direction-controlled Perfect-Surface Copper (PSC) strands in a 7-strand 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 extremely pure and smooth-surface PSC conductors minimize distortion caused by grain boundaries that exist in any metal conductor.

NRG-Z3’s patented RF/ND-Tech and direction-controlled Silver-Plated shield conductors efficiently drain RF noise from the line and neutral shields to ground via the third “ground” pin. Additionally, NRG-Z3’s common-mode phase-cancelling array provides additional differential linear filtering. The net result is powerful, dynamic, and immersive!

Perfect-Surface Copper (PSC) Conductors
The astonishingly smooth and pure Perfect-Surface processed conductors minimize distortion caused by grain boundaries and surface discontinuities that exist in any metal conductor.

RF/ND-Tech (Patented Radio-Frequency Ground-Noise Dissipation) Minimizes Circuit Misbehavior by Canceling Induced RF Noise
AC ground wires may provide protection from electrical short circuits, but they also act as an antenna. Therefore, they are subject to induced radio-frequency (RF) noise. This RF noise bypasses component power supplies and is typically coupled directly into a system’s most sensitive audio/video circuits. AudioQuest’s RF/ND-Tech greatly reduces this distortion, offering unprecedented levels of noise dissipation across the widest range of radio frequencies possible. Our unique circuit topology uses a common-mode phase-cancelling array, in conjunction with proprietary dielectric materials that provide additional differential linear filtering. US Patent # 8,988,168.

ZERO (No) Characteristic Impedance (Uncompressed Current Transfer)
While many AC power cables feature low DC resistance to accommodate high current demand, a cable’s characteristic impedance is also crucial for optimal performance. Unlike most AC power cables that constrict or compress an audio-provoked transient, AudioQuest AC power cables combine low DC resistance and zero characteristic impedance 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 ensure induced noise is dissipated and drained properly.
