AudioQuest NRG-1.5 AC Power Cable

The Audioquest NRG-1.5 AC Power cable is a step up from the NRG-1. The NRG-1.5 uses exceptionally high purity PSC+ conductors to further minimize distortion caused by grain boundaries. Greater suface quality provided by Solid Perfect-Surface Copper+ conductors helps eliminate harshness and improve clarity significantly.

  • Compatible with most devices that use 2-pole IEC 7 connectors for a reliable connection.
  • Star-Quad HyperLiz geometry reduces distortion and noise entering the system.
  • Solid PSC+ conductors provide a clear signal.
  • Cold-welded connectors for durability.

NRG-1.5 2-Pole AC Power Cable No matter how perfect an AC power source, distortion is added within any AC cable, especially within a stranded cable. Even the most sophisticated filters and power supplies cannot eliminate this cable-induced distortion.

SOLID PERFECT-SURFACE COPPER+ (PSC+) CONDUCTORS: NRG-1.5 uses extremely high-purity Perfect-Surface Copper+ conductors. All conductors are solid, which prevents strand interaction, a major source of distortion. Surface quality is critical because a conductor can be considered a rail-guide for both the electric fields within a conductor, and for the magnetic fields outside the conductor. The astonishingly smooth and pure PSC+ eliminates harshness and greatly increases clarity compared to OFHC, OCC, 8N and other coppers. The superior purity of PSC+ further minimizes distortion caused by grain boundaries, which exist within any metal conductor.

STAR-QUAD GEOMETRY: The relationship between conductors defines a cable’s most basic electrical values (capacitance and inductance). However, even when those variables are kept in a reasonable balance, the relationship between conductors can be varied in ways that greatly affect the sound. The Star-Quad construction of NRG-1.5 allows for significantly better dynamic contrast and information intelligibility than if the same conductors were run in parallel.

COLD-WELD SYSTEM: This novel plug design enables a perfect heat-free connection between cable and plug. The connection between the plug and conductors is made using AQ’s Cold-Weld System, which provides a superior connection that ensures that the structural integrity of the conductor is kept completely intact. The Cold-Weld System refers to a combination of high pressure at the point of contact and the use of copper- or silver-impregnated paste.

TERMINATIONS: Cold-welded connectors
