AudioQuest NRG-Y2 Low-Noise UK Mains Power Cable

£89.00

AudioQuest NRG-Y2 Mains Power Cable

Following on from the success of the Storm Series NRG power cables (Thunder, Tornado, Hurricane & Dragon), AudioQuest have utilised trickle down techniques to create a new series of affordable, entry level NRG power cables. Featuring the excellent Noise-Dissipation technology employed in the Storm Series, this new range of NRG-Y and NRG-Z cables outperform their old NRG-X and NRG-1/1.5/2 counterparts by a landslide. The NRG-Y2 replaces the NRG-X2 & NRG-1 however it outperforms even the NRG-1.5.

Ideal for media streamers, Blu-ray players, cable boxes, and more, NRG-Y2 cables use direction-controlled Long-Grain Copper (LGC) conductors in a Semi-Solid Concentric arrangement in which the individual copper strands are packed more tightly and never change position within the bundle. This construction significantly reduces strand interaction distortion. The greater purity and more uniform grain structure of Long-Grain Copper further reduces distortion. In addition, NRG-Y2's direction-controlled silver-plated shield conductors efficiently drain RF noise to ground.

Features

  • Zero Characteristic Impedance for Uncompressed Current Transfer
  • Semi-Solid Concentric Packed Long-Grain Copper (LGC) Conductors
  • Direction-Controlled Conductors & Silver-Plated Shield Drains

 

Zero Characteristic Impedance for Uncompressed Current Transfer

A non-technical analogy for this might be that if you drop a coin in a tube with shampoo in it, no matter how wide (low resistance) that tube, the shampoo (the Characteristic Impedance) is going to get in the way (compromise current transients). Eliminating Characteristic Impedance (Zero means No in this application) is like having only air in the tube, as close to a vacuum as possible. Whether the amp is running at less than a watt or is fully maxed out, the unrestricted transients are visceral — something the whole body understands, no words required.

Semi-Solid Concentric Packed Long-Grain Copper (LGC) Conductors

NRG-Y2 and NRG-Y3 AC cables use Long-Grain-Copper (LGC) in a 7-strand Semi-Solid Concentric arrangement in which the strands never change position within the bundle. This technique significantly reduces strand-interaction distortion. The higher purity and fewer grains within LGC copper further reduce distortion.

Direction-Controlled Conductors & Silver-Plated Shield Drains

All drawn metal has a non-symmetrical, and therefore directional, grain structure. AudioQuest controls the resulting RF impedance variation so that noise drains away from where it will cause distortion. The Silver-Plated shield drains efficiently remove RF noise from the line and neutral shields via the wall plug’s “ground” pin – which is why even the 2-Pole “2” models have an unexpected ground pin.
