As with the previous versions of NRG-X cables, new NRG-X cables use Direction-Controlled Long-Grain Copper (LGC) in superbly simplified Semi-Solid Concentric Conductors — packing the same 12 amp rating (X3,120V) into 7 strands instead of the previous 37 strands.

Key Features

  • Semi-Solid Concentric Packed Conductors
  • Long-Grain Copper (LGC)
  • Noise-Dissipation: Quiet Background and Minimal Circuit Misbehavior Due to Direction-Controlled Conductors
  • SuperSlim C7 perfectly accomodates Sonos components, games consoles, etc.

As with the previous versions of NRG-X cables, new NRG-X cables use Direction-Controlled Long-Grain Copper (LGC) in superbly simplified Semi-Solid Concentric Conductors — packing the same 12 amp rating (X3,120V) into 7 strands instead of the previous 37 strands. That’s an incredibly tiny percentage of the previous strand interaction. Sounds so simple, but the resulting improvement is so delightfully clear.

AudioQuest is pleased to introduce improved versions of NRG-X2 and NRG-X3—AudioQuest’s much-beloved high-value, high-performance, entry-level AC power cables.

While lacking many of the features that make NRGs Y and Z, the Winds, and the Storms so incredible—such as ZERO Tech and GND (Ground-Noise Dissipation)—the X models are cut from the same cloth, designed to effectively lower noise in an audio/video system. One hears more of what’s on the recording: transient articulation, bass definition, soundstage scale, and the spatial cues that bring music, dialog and sound-effects to life.

That’s an incredibly tiny percentage of the previous strand interaction. Sounds so simple, but the resulting improvement is so delightfully clear.

Directional-control, a crucial Noise-Dissipation technique, ensures that induced noise is dissipated and drained properly. These many material and design advantages enable significantly superior performance over stock AC cords, and over many much more expensive after-market AC cables.

Semi-Solid Concentric Packed Conductors

Semi-Solid Concentric Packed Conductors are used in some of AudioQuest’s AC power and speaker cables as a cost-effective, flexible alternative to typical stranded conductors. Semi-Solid Concentric Packed Conductors use fewer, larger strands that do not change position down the length of the cable. While solid conductors are the complete solution to strand distortion, Semi-Solid Concentric Packed Conductors avoid many of the distortion mechanisms of stranded conductors.

Long-Grain Copper (LGC)

LGC allows a smoother and clearer sound than cables using regular OFHC (Oxygen-Free High-Conductivity) copper. OFHC is a general metal industry specification regarding “loss” without any concern for distortion. LGC has fewer oxides within the conducting material, less impurities, less grain boundaries, and definitively better performance. NRG-X3 cables use LGC strands in a Semi-Solid Concentric Packed Conductor arrangement.
