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

The Challenge

No matter how perfect an AC power source, distortion is added within any AC cable. Even the most sophisticated filters and power supplies cannot eliminate this Transient Intermodulation Distortion (TIM) as the 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 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 which exist in any metal conductor.

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

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.
