Tighter Bass, Better Image Focus, and Other Benefits
The Pangea Audio AC-9SE Signature Edition power cable is an enhancement of Pangea's wildly popular AC-9 power cable. This 7-awg design with its advanced combination of Litz, PCOCC, and other conductors offers a substantial upgrade compared to the already excellent AC-9. The sonic benefits of the Signature Edition include tighter bass and better image focus.
Because of their high-current requirements, power amps benefit from heavier gauge conductors than normal power cords offer. The AC9-SE is specially designed to deliver the clean, high-current power needed by audio amplifiers – including stereo, mono, multichannel, and integrated amps. It is also ideal for powered subwoofers, power conditioners, and other high-current electronic components.
OFC, Long-Crystal Copper, and PCOCC Copper Conductors
The AC-9SE uses different wire gauges consisting of a combination of OFC, Long-Crystal Copper, Litz, and audiophile-grade single-crystal PCOCC (Pure Copper by Ohno Continuous Casting) from Japan. PCOCC (99.99999% pure) Ohno-cast copper conductors are typically ten-times more expensive than standard copper conductors.
Counter-spiraled conductors offer superior noise rejection, and the triple-shielded design provides high-current noise isolation. The large-diameter 7-awg construction boasts seven-way multi-gauge geometry optimized for high-current delivery of 50/60 Hz AC power. The 24K gold-plated contacts provide superior electrical contact.
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 Audio'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.
