ZERO CHARACTERISTIC IMPEDANCE
While many AC power cables feature low DC resistance in order to accommodate the demand for high current, a cable’s 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 demand.
SEMI-SOLID CONCENTRIC PERFECT-SURFACE COPPER (PSC) CONDUCTORS
In a Semi-Solid Concentric arrangement, the conductor strands are packed more tightly and never change position within the bundle. This construction significantly reduces strand-interaction distortion. The high-purity and smooth-surface PSC+ conductors minimize distortion caused by the grain boundaries that exist within any metal conductor.
SILVER-PLATED DRAIN WIRES
Direction-controlled Silver-Plated shield conductors efficiently drain RF noise from the line and neutral shields to ground via the third “ground” pin. The net result is powerful, dynamic, and immersive.
