Lots of today's DVD players, satellite/cable boxes, and video game consoles come with a detachable AC power cord. That's a useful feature because it gives you the flexibility to upgrade to a higher-quality cable. It may surprise you, but simply replacing your component's stock power cord with AudioQuest's NRG-1 low-distortion AC power cable can noticeably improve your system's picture and sound quality.
Why power cords make a difference
The AC power that feeds your gear is really the foundation of your system's audio and video performance. Even if you've plugged your components into a power conditioner to clean up the current coming out of your wall, a flimsy stock power cord can act as an antenna for airborne interference that subtly degrades high-resolution audio and video signals.
Advanced materials and construction for lower distortion
The NRG-1 uses four solid conductors made of high-purity long-grain copper. Solid conductors eliminate interaction between wire strands, which is a major source of distortion in an AC power cable.
Make sure it fits your component
The NRG-1 works with most components that have a detachable, two-pole "C7" power cord. That includes many DVD players and Blu-ray players, most cable and satellite set-top boxes, a few audio receivers, and all PlayStation® and Xbox™ game consoles.
