AudioQuest NRG-2 Details
The AudioQuest NRG-2 AC Power Cable uses solid long-grain copper (LGC) conductors, counter-spiral geometry, and a cold-weld system to create a low-distortion, high quality, astoundingly clear connection. This 3 prong power cord works with most 2 or 3 pole IEC-type AC connections.
- Low-distortion replacement AC power cable (3-prong connector for wall outlet, IEC connector for component)
- For audio/video components with a 2- or 3-pole IEC-type AC connector
- Counter-Spiral Hyperlitz geometry provides self shielding against external noise sources
- Textile braid cable cover
- Thirteen solid long-grain copper conductors: three 19-gauge and ten 21-gauge
NRG-2 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.
COUNTER-SPIRAL GEOMETRY: NRG-2 power cables have an inner circular array of positive conductors spiraling in one direction. Around this inner group are the negative conductors spiraling in the opposite direction. Even while the positive and negative conductors are crossing each other instead of being parallel, the relationship between the positive and negative groups is fixed and non-changing, adhering to one of AudioQuest’s most basic design tenets: consistency. The result is an astonishing clarity, like focusing a camera lens you had no idea was so far out of focus.
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.
