AudioQuest IEC Power Cords
We offer AudioQuest's acclaimed NRG-series power cables in multiple styles.
New for 2018, the NRG-Y3 is an upgrade to the company's popular NRG-X3 model. The notable sonic improvement is called "Zero Characteristic Impedance," with a benefit of "Uncompressed Current Transfer." They feature silver-plated shield drains for reduced RF line noise. They are made with Long-Grain Copper in a 7-strand, semi-solid concentric arrangement in which the strands never change position within the bundle, reducing strand interaction distortion. The length is 2m.
The NRG-4 uses multiple solid conductors with AudioQuest's "Perfect Surface" treatment. This geometry eliminates strand distortions. Conductors are insulated via proprietary RFI-damping materials ("Carbon loaded polyethylene"). This is a 6-foot cable.
Both cables have a female IEC connector on one end, and a US-standard 3-pole male (NEMA 5-15) plug at the other end. This configuration is suitable for most home theater devices, mic preamps, converters, and tube mic power supplies. Please check compatibility with your hardware before ordering.
Customers who wish to have these cables pre-conditioned can request it; we would put the cable(s) onto our proprietary "cable cooker." The device runs a high current square wave oscillation through the cable to force dielectric conditioning.
(The NRG-X3 and NRG-4 are sold out, and have been discontinued by AudioQuest.)
