Audioquest NRG-10

Audioquest NRG-10

“I replaced the cable from wall to distribution block with the Audioquest with results well beyond expectations, the bass improved in quality and definition, midrange gained greater clarity and real extension and neutrality at the top end. In my view, a real winner!” Paul – Warrington

Overview

“Audioquest NRG-10 is a mains lead for connecting many devices via an extension lead. This device has a 72 Volt field around the 240 Volts mains. This is dielectric bias  around the mains and cleans up the 240  V alternating current that ‘feeds’ the amplifier. This dramatically transforms the quality of signal that has ‘Noise” on it from the environment on its way to your home. The only way to believe it is to see or hear it. I know because I have tried one and then bought it!” –  John,  Lancashire”

Solid Perfect-Surface Copper + Conductors (PSC+): NRG-10 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.

SOLID PERFECT-SURFACE COPPER+ CONDUCTORS (PSC+): NRG-10 uses extremely high-purity Perfect-Surface Copper+ conductors.

MULTI-LAYER CARBON-BASED NOISE-DISSIPATION and CROSSTALK-DISSIPATION SYSTEM (INSULATION): The negative conductors in NRG-10 are insulated with partially conductive Carbon-Loaded Polyethylene. This remarkable material damps radio-frequency garbage from being fed back into the amplifier.

RF NOISE STOPPERS: Made from ferrite, the RF Noise Stoppers suppress and then dissipate (as low-level heat) high-frequency interference, eliminating layers of A/C grunge for a clear, quiet presentation.

COUNTER-SPIRAL GEOMETRY: NRG-10 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.

DIELECTRIC-BIAS SYSTEM (DBS, US Pat #s 7,126,055 & 7,872,195 B1): All insulation slows down the signal on the conductor inside. When insulation is unbiased, it slows down parts of the signal differently, a big problem for very time-sensitive multi-octave audio. AudioQuest’s DBS creates a strong, stable electrostatic field which saturates and polarizes (organizes) the molecules of the insulation. This minimizes both energy storage in the insulation and the multiple nonlinear time-delays that occur. Sound appears from a surprisingly black background with unexpected detail and dynamic contrast. The DBS battery packs will last for years. A test button and LED allow for the occasional battery check.

COLD-WELD SYSTEM: This novel plug design enables a perfect heat-free connection between cable and plug.
