AudioQuest NRG-1 AC Power Cable

The Audioquest NRG-1 AC Power cable uses Solid Long-Grain Copper (LGC) conductors for definitively better performance. The Star-Quad construction allows for noticeably greater dynamic contrast and information intelligibility. With the Cold-Weld System, the customer can take comfort in a superior, heat-free connection between cable and plug.

  • 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 long-grain copper conductors reduce jitter and distortion.
  • Cold-welded connectors for durability.

NRG-1 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 LONG-GRAIN COPPER (LGC) CONDUCTORS: Solid conductors eliminate strand-interaction distortion. Evergreen’s solid Long-Grain Copper allows a smoother and clearer sound than cables using regular OFHC (Oxygen-Free High-Conductivity) copper. OFHC is a general metal industry specification regarding “loss” without any concern for distortion. LGC has fewer oxides within the conducting material, less impurities, less grain boundaries, and definitively better performance.

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 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.
