Low-Distortion 2 Pole Power Cable
Perfect-Surface Copper + (PSC+) with Silver-Plated Drain
â¢ Quiet Background and Minimal Active-Circuit
Misbehavior Due to Direction-Controlled Conductors and
â¢ 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-Z2 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.
In addition, NRG-Z2âs direction-controlled Silver-Plated
shield conductors efficiently drain RF noise from the line
and neutral shields to ground via the third âgroundâ 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 cableâs
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
