The Power Cable for Better Transient Response and Lower Noise
Enhance the performance of source components, including preamps, CD players, tuners, and more. The Pangea Audio AC-14SE Signature Edition power cable brings the benefits of better transient response and a lower noise floor.
This cable is terminated with a high-quality Schuko-type AC plug common in many European countries.
The AC-14SE is a 14-AWG cable that uses three different wire gauges consisting of a combination of solid and Litz conductors. The large-gauge center conductor is made of solid PCOCC copper. Surrounding this conductor are six cores consisting of one medium-gauge solid OFC copper conductor, which in turn is surrounded by six Litz conductors.
The net effect of Jay Victor's patented design is that every conductor is individually insulated. The braided shield is made of silver-plated copper for lower noise.
Specifically Designed for Source Components
Pangea Audio's AC-14SE Signature Edition power cable is specifically designed for source components, which do not require the same large amounts of current as receivers and amps. The AC-14SE provides more than enough current while offering multiple shielding and other features that facilitate extremely clean and noise-free power.
Pangea designed the AC-14SE specifically for wide-band delivery of power to line-level AV components. It will enhance the performance of preamps, CD players, DVD players, DACs, and other line-level components.
Superior flexibility means easier installation, and the lightweight design doesn't impede the effectiveness of isolation devices. The AC-14SE's 24k gold-plated contacts offer superior electrical contact. Special two-shot molded connector bodies protect vital AC connections for maximum current delivery and long life.
Pangea Audio Power Cables
Pangea Audio power cables offer the perfect balance of power, shielding, and flexibility for audiophile components. These cables have been designed, not from the AC wall outlet to the component, but the other way around – from the component to the wall outlet. The result is a cable that not only fully satisfies the 'real power requirements' of audiophile components, but which also delivers improved performance for both power and component isolation.
Pangea's 'component to the wall outlet' design results in a better cable that's designed just for the component you want to power. The cable gives you precisely what you need - no more and definitely no less.
More Isn't Always Better
Until now, all upgrade power cables have been designed according to a 'more is better' philosophy, leading manufacturers to increase the diameter of the conductor and the thickness of the insulation in an attempt to improve performance, but at the expense of flexibility. The resulting thick, noncompliant cables put a severe strain on the chassis of connected components.
Heavy, inflexible cables can also reduce the effectiveness of component isolation and suspension systems. This is a particular problem for sensitive source components (such as preamps, CD players, phono preamps, tuners, and DACs) that are typically placed on lighter suspension systems. Therefore, the AC-14SE has been engineered for flexibility and to put less strain on your gear, including isolation accessories.
