Maximize Audio/Video Performance with Ultra-Clean AC Power
Step up to better overall A/V component performance with AudioQuest's NRG-2 power cable. NRG-2 improves on the design excellence of NRG-1 by offering three solid LGC 14-gauge (awg) conductors compared to NRG-1's two solid LGC 16-gauge (awg) conductors for rock-bottom distortion levels and improved current flow.
It looks innocent enough. But the detachable power cord that came with your DVD player, satellite receiver, or game console might be adding distortion to sound and video. While an AC power conditioner helps clean up AC power as it comes out of your wall, a poor quality power cable located after the power conditioner can still cause performance problems. That's because a substandard power cable can act as an antenna for noise, picking up airborne interference that degrades the sensitive video signal and muddies audio.
Say Goodbye to Annoying RFI
AudioQuest's NRG-2 low-distortion AC power cable stops airborne interference in its tracks. Then it goes a step further by putting an end to distortion caused by conductor strand interaction.
See the 'barrel' in the NRG-2 cable? That's an advanced RF Stopper which does exactly what its name promises. It filters out RF radio frequency interference in both directions. This prevents outside interference from entering the equipment. It also prevents interference generated by a digital component (DVD player, DAC, tuner, etc.) from reaching other equipment in your AV system.
No More Strand Interaction
NRG-2 uses three 14-gauge (awg) solid Long-Grain Copper (LGC) conductors in an advanced Self Shielding Counter-Spiral Hyperlitz configuration in place of the stranded copper conductors used in most power cords. Solid conductors prevent strand interaction, which is the greatest single source of distortion in an audio cable or an AC power cable. The less complicated grain structure and fewer impurities of LGC copper significantly reduce distortion compared to normal copper or even high-purity copper. And AudioQuest's Counter-Spiral conductor geometry minimizes conductor interaction while maintaining a fixed, low-inductance relationship between conductors.
A Cheap and Necessary Fix
It costs so little to correct AC power cord problems with AudioQuest's NRG-2 low-distortion AC power cable. And the benefits to any AV component with a detachable power cord can be considerable. You'll notice the improvement in both audio and video performance.

|High performance at a reasonable price|
The construction quality of this cable is 1st rate. The molded plugs fit tight and snug. Its flexible enough to be able to conform to tight confines. Its light enough not to stress the IEC receptacles on source components, that its designed for and they look good too. I bought 3 cables for my 3 piece digital system. The improvement over the stock cables was jaw dropping right out of the box and got better after they had burned in. Everything improved, especially the bass. These cables work well for source components, but I recommend a heavier gauge cable for high power amplifiers and subwoofers.

|Cost Effective Upgrade|
This cable gave me a significant improvement over my stock power cables for a very reasonable price. The increase in soundstage depth, bass slam, and presence is not subtle. I was amazed at the difference. The construction of the cable is first rate with high quality IEC connectors. The cable while being robustly built is still flexible enough to bend to conform to tight applications.
